The E12 is a great amp for the price, but it can reach the P4's performance level. I have my P4 with a custom opamp configuration to my liking and it's just awesome. But I have an E12 too and I use both, as it's a "fun" sounding amp... As for the size comparision, I use my portable amps with an iPod Classic through a LOD cable. The P4 is a bit short and bulky to use with the Classic and the E12 is a bit too lengthy (although it's width and height are perfect for the Classic)...

@putente,

Thank you so very much!  Yours was precisely the type of comment I was hoping for, and was consistent with my thinking.  The E12 just seems, to me, to be a fun amp. 

The fit and finish of a device that I hold in my hand is often very important (though not with the P4 due to its customization abilities.)

BTW, I ordered HiFlight's TopKit today.

I have one simple question....
Fiio E17 Vs. Fiio E12.....
Differences.....

Thanks...

Thanks for the mention of the c5 (that give me some reading to do)
With the bass boost looking more unlikely to be useful the c5 might be an option.

As for delivery dates, it looks like the c5 gets it official release first, at least worldwide.

I just assumed it was something you found on the 'Net!

Anyway, no problem, I wouldn't mind offering up a few suggestions.

Sorry for the delay in replying, I was out doing a few things, visiting family, etc.

I'll send you a PM!

Cheers,

CJ

Not a problem!  Thanks.  

 

But by the way, none of my reply was regarding anything you said about the paper.  Only the "PS" was a direct tangent from that.  I was otherwise actually happy with the remark of it not being from the perspective of an electrical engineer (as it's true) and considering that you yourself are one, all that was said was essentially just a plea for some possible guidance with regards to my expressed situation.

Can't wait to get my E12 that I traded my C421 amp for.  Might get a C&C BH sometime in the future to have a smaller sized amp too.  Has anyone heard if Fiio has changed their decision on the bass boost change?  It sounds like the version 1 bass boost will be a better match for me anyway.

Where are you guys buying these from?

I have no idea!

But it's a good question!

I assume it may take a while for FiiO to put the "new, unimproved" version into production anyway, so, you never know, they may get the "original, classic" version into stock.

I was going to fire an e-mail off to them to see when they expected some stock, get myself at the front of the line, maybe?

Gotta beat me to the front of the line first ;)

I've yet to go to HFS, I've only known about the place for a few months, just haven't had the time to go there

post #1317 of 3695

Can anyone suggest a good portable dac to pair with this>?

Damn!

Since you live there, you get a place in line before me! LOL! frown.gif

 

Seriously, The Headfone Shop is a very small store, but they have a pretty decent selection of headphones that you can actually try out before you buy! Very cool.

I haven't bought any 'phones there, but I did pick up a FiiO E09K there. Great service.

Wouldn't it be AWESOME if FiiO wold take the guts of this new E12 and stuff them into the E17? Add a midrange control and you'd have the most versatile, powerful, AMP/DAC on the planet. THAT would be heaven for me and the ONLY thing that could get my E17 away from me. biggrin.gif
