Yeah, that's right.
You can cable the "Line In/Out" on the E18 into the "Line In" on the E12 if you are using the E18 as a DAC.

I noticed this question was kinda left hanging there.....redface.gif
If you did plug the headphone jack on the E18 into the "Line In" on the E12 you wouldn't actually damage the E12.
The "Line In" on the E12 would not actually pull 350 mW out of the E18.

But the best way to run E18 into E12 is the E18 "Line In/Out" in the E12 "Line In".

Yes, I've done this and it works.

Does E12 v1 has any real collectable value since it was manufactured in a limited quantity of 200 units for Chinese market only?
post #3186 of 3190
Well, "collectable" is determined by demand. It was also released in limited quantities in the US, I got super lucky to get a "OG" E12 from pre-market launch. You can tell if it's the first release because the silks teeming for the gain selector says "10 dB," even though internally the gain is a 17 dB boost. My opinion is it is the more desirable version since the bass boost is centered at 20 Hz, REALLY low bass. Both the current and first E12's have a 6 dB bass boost, but the first E12's boost the bass where most open headphones are pretty rolled off, so it is more of a bass "extender" and doesn't bleed at all into mids, very clean and atmospheric.

the LED will stop flashing. I do not know if leaving it plugged in will affect performance or batter life.

post #3189 of 3190
Battery should be charged and discharged periodically.

But if you have it plugged in all the time, who cares about battery life?

I'm not sure why I was quoted, I posted that over a year ago. My E12 has been sold and gone for nearly six months.
