You could always look in the classifieds after the E12 is released... I'm sure there will be tons of E11 owners trading up.

Sorry, still need to connect to the L7 first.

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

 

Sorry not.

Thank you! Can you tell me which opamp is being used inside, and if it's socketed or soldered?

The op amp is to be decided , but maybe LME49710+LME49600 for the commercial version.

How does the sound compare against the rest of the Fiio lineup?

Please, oh please tell me the E12 will have a low battery warning.  This drives me crazy about my E11- I am in the middle of working out and it just dies.  I believe you will sell units based on something as simple as a low battery warning.

 

I really like the apparent durability and simplicity of design.  For me, I don't care about crossfeed and am fine with one-stage bass boost- the simpler the better.  I do think a treble boost would be nice to compensate for darker cans- maybe convert the crossfeed switch to a treble switch?  I think if anyone needs something more specific, an EQ is in order.

That's why I bought my E11 from the Micca store, with an additional battery and charger for no extra cost! biggrin.gif

Sound wise, what will be the differences between this and the E11. And if this is the flag ship of the portable FiiO amps a treble switch would be nice.

Can we still use E12 while charging? This is a no on E11...

 

[EDIT]

I already saw the answer... ;)

Sorry

$200-$300

All I can guess is possibly $250. There were 3 options FiiO gave. The cheapest one gave the best sound quality but you can not charge while using, the second option was a bit below the first but you can charge, third option gave you some really good battery and charging apparatus, the lowest tier of the three in sound but also the most expensive. They put a poll up on FB AND on Head Fi (awesome right?) and the second option for the mix was chosen. The second was slightly more expensive but also had what most of us liked. So as its the middle I will only guess $250? Nothing is set in stone. 

 

The E12 is a flagship portable amplifier and NOT a replacement for the E11. An replacement would mean an amp that was also portable wth similar function and featres in the same price bracket.

 

E9 to E90K is an "upgrade" or replacement.

E7 to E17 IS NOT an "in line upgrade" or replacement as E7 is $77 and E17 is $130-$150

E7 to E70K(not released yet) would be a direct replacement.
