I kinda miss the volume protector band from the E11, but I can tell it shouldn't be an issue since I can see the volume knob is recessed into the top ridge of the amp. And of course overall the brushed metal look and shiny input/output jacks are very handsome. Maybe the interplay of black and gold could be played up a bit with brass accents? But overall, I refer you to my first statement of "Ooooooh!"

Very nice, but where is the bass boost?

On the other side, Bass boost and Crossfeed ( maybe )

Thank you. Some other questions:

 

When will this be available in the US?

 

What are the advantages/improvements over the E11 which I already own and like very much?

 

Will you have an Iphone 5 adapter coming out?

1, E12 will launch market in the end of this year.

 

2, Bigger power output and better performance, listening while charging.

 

3, Seems the new lightning dock need a secret chip so it can be work with any accessory which connect to the lightning connector, it means maybe there are not high quality line out signal anymore.

 

   but it will be a good chance to Big company to develop some portable DAC/Amp 

post #161 of 3708

feiao, what are the physical dimensions of this new amp, with and without the volume knob?

post #162 of 3708
Is it possible to connect the L12 directly to the E7/E17 through the dock connector (much like E9) or the L7 is still needed to get the line out?

Craigster, the new power system should directly address your issue with the E11's battery charging method; you'll be ale to use and charge the device at the same time (with one battery). Personally, I would still like the option to user-service the battery, but thinner/smaller devices usually preclude that feature. Now that my iPod is like, oh, 8 years old or so, I wish it was easier to get inside and replace the battery which doesn't last much longer than 2 and a half hours anymore. Of course, the E12 will also be quite a bit more powerful over the E11, hopefully it'll include a low/high gain switch to further address the more challenging headphones at both ends of the impedance/sensitivity load range. Also, the possible crossfeed circuit (optional is good) would allow some bleeding between the left and right channels to gain more realism – not useful on every audio feed, but some music is really enhanced with an "out of your head" feeling and a potential increase of soundstage depth.

The only thing about the iPhone 5 that really excites me is that it makes all the older ones cheaper smily_headphones1.gif

Just curious, when the E12 comes out, will there be a price drop for the E11?

 

$10 or $20 off the E11 would be nice. biggrin.gif
