All I can guess is possibly $250. There were 3 options FiiO gave. The cheapest one gave the best sound quality but you can not charge while using, the second option was a bit below the first but you can charge, third option gave you some really good battery and charging apparatus, the lowest tier of the three in sound but also the most expensive. They put a poll up on FB AND on Head Fi (awesome right?) and the second option for the mix was chosen. The second was slightly more expensive but also had what most of us liked. So as its the middle I will only guess $250? Nothing is set in stone. 

 

The E12 is a flagship portable amplifier and NOT a replacement for the E11. An replacement would mean an amp that was also portable wth similar function and featres in the same price bracket.

 

E9 to E90K is an "upgrade" or replacement.

E7 to E17 IS NOT an "in line upgrade" or replacement as E7 is $77 and E17 is $130-$150

E7 to E70K(not released yet) would be a direct replacement.


At that pricepoint, I would like to see treble boost added and see how it compares to the Headstage Arrow as this would not be in the budget category like my E11.

Since the price point is half what I thought, I am fine with no treble boost :)

Will you offer an Iphone 5 adapter, or will the current Iphone 4 adapter be compatible with the Iphone 5 converter?

Then I guess I will have to go with the e17 then. How is sound quality wise, does the e12 compares to the e17? Much better or not, because I weighting the option between these or the e17 with treble boost

wow,tht's what i'd expect..if fiio selling amp for a million dollar like other manufacturer i won't love the brand so much.

i have a little suggestion to feiao: Please update the latest progress on the first post, it make everything more efficient

 

BTW, what's the opamp that e12 will be using? and

 

ps(some personal thought):

i'd love to see the next big thing from fiio will have a more transparent/flat sound. E11 did the vocal and the bass nicely but the high sparkle is the thing that i felt lacking.

It would be nice if we can  tune the sound using the interconnects instead of the amp. Afterall, amplifier shudn't alter the highs and low,don't they?

thanks, will update more news on the first page when we back to work from holidays.

 

the op amps is to be decided because there are too many options and we need more time to test which will be the best.

Wow. You guys pulled some magic! Glad to hear it is much cheaper.
post #192 of 3077
OOOH, yes the new price range falls right into budget...
Still looking to power my AKG Q701 headphones, the portable factor of this over an E9 means I could use this E12 amp with all my headphones in whatever situation smily_headphones1.gif

Can you tell me other FiiO products currently on the market with the same price? I'm trying to figure out how much it will cost in Europe...
