Feiao:

 

I own an E17 and a E09K, along with various Lxx LODs.  Great products.

 

I did a search on the thread and didn't find the answer to this question:  Weight?

Oh, man, I would love for Fiio to make the Fiio E19 already - A portable DAC/AMP that can drive anything from sensitive IEMs to power-hungry Orthos.

What are you really asking?  Some people are always going to say "no" to that.  People are always going to argue about sound quality.

 

If you're talking about output electric power into those headphones, that depends on how loud you want to listen.  The HE-6 is a good deal less sensitive than the others listed.  Based on what we know about the amp power supply and ICs used, it should power the ones other than the HE-6 to deafening levels (unless the source file is just that quiet).  Depending on your choice of music and preferred listening level, it may realistically not be enough for HE-6 for plenty of non-extreme users.

Well, that's good to hear. Thanks for the explanation.

Depend on the test of the engineer sample, the output power @32 ohms headphones is about 1.3w to 1.4w, and @16 ohms headphones is about 900mW, so I believe it can drive almost all hard to drive headphone except some " monster " headphone like the AKG K1000。

Sounds like it's coming along really well, let's hope I get a sample to review

sorry we have not plan to release silver version cause black is far more popular.

post #311 of 3074

Is it still looking realistic that the release will be in December? I might want one for Christmas :P depending on how it compares to an E11
 

post #312 of 3074

Is it going to be in the same category of the JDS Labs C421 ... are they comparable to each other :)

post #313 of 3074

If i get one to review, i will compare it to the C421 AD8620 :)

post #314 of 3074
Thanks .. Will be waiting wink.gif

I'm also getting a JDS Labs O2 black edition next week, it's going to be my reference amp for reviews
