I see, not very suprising :)

 

FiiO has or had represenatives in berlin last week or the previous week for a big audio or technology fair. They had a or a few(don't know) samples of the E12 there as FiiO's facebook page says. The guy that has the E12 in that picture is from Berlin and is friends with some of the FiiO reps :)

 

I had to dig a little tongue.gif

Does anyone know if it's brushed aluminum or plastic made to look that way?

Hi, sorry for going off topic but I didn't want to start a whole new thread so I thought I'd just ask here. What exactly does an amp do?

You wouldn't need to start a new thread as there are plenty of threads on head fi that answer it as well as across the net but here:

My video of it. IT's mainly for beginner so I omit some of the super niche things and some things aren't too or as completely true in super high price ranges. A general simplified idea of what it is basically

Cool, thanks for the video

If the initial reviews are positive, I'm sold.

Half may be too much, E12 is said to be around iPhone 4 thickness, around so about 3/4 of E17 thickness

post #147 of 3695

yup, it is still thick for me =)

 

still hoping fiio can do it in the future =)

the thickness is 14.4mm, hard to make it more slim cause we have to put a huge battery inside it.

Wow, that can't be much thicker than my E5 including the clip, for a much more powerful amp. Personally, great battery = awesome, and less than a centimeter & a half is really thin! I think some audiophiles would be willing to power an amp off their own lifeforce, haha, I'll stick with a battery smily_headphones1.gif

The FiiO E6 is just 9mm thin, and light enough to clip to your belt or shirt. Hard to imagine that would still be too thick for you, unless you are trying to put it inside headphones or some other DIY (Do It Yourself) project.
