I just bought one of the new Nexus 7 2nd gens and would love to have this DAC to go with it!

I don't think I was expecting a quicker answer from FiiO at the time, but anything's flossable.

If the new Nexus 7 is anything like the last one in the amp and DAC department, it is a very poor device for music. Had to put it at 100% volume to power my HP100, which only need about half volume from my S4 and iPhone 4. Sounded noticeably worse also. Getting a new DAC/amp is definitely a good idea.

Here's the big question - we're talking about a usb dac and amp, on past notices I understand that it can work as either one at every given moment but not both... what goes? Will this one work as both on android phones?

No, this can be used as an amp and DAC at the same time.

Yup. They should be able to work as both or separately, depending on what you want.

Yes it is DAC/Amp combo.
It will be able to work as:
1) DAC and an AMP both, when plugged in via USB and output via headphone out
2) DAC only, when plugged in via USB and output through LINE OUT
3) AMP only, when plugged in via AUX In and output through Headphone Out

When is the release?

 

And how is the sound going to be like? I've heard that CS DACs are not very clear and are more about the musicality than listening to music as it was meant to be - As in the CS DACs are supposedly colored is that right?
 

ATM I own: Sennheiser HD700/ATH-M50(Great headphones just recently got them)/AKG K271 MK2 (Not going to use them anyhow, they're not comfortable)

 

Will E18 work well with the first two? :D or maybe I should spend money on another headphone amp/dac? Though it's handy since it's portable and dedicated to Android.

 

Thanks people for the help :)

For hd700, you would probably want something better. Leckerton uha-6s.mkii works with android and has a very good amp.Though it does cost more...for hd700, it's well worth it.

^^ Kimvictor is right. You should probably look for a different amp to drive the Senn HD700.
As for the ATH M50, I think FiiO E18 would be fine.

But, I think the strength of FiiO E18 will lie in the fact that it will serve as a power bank for android phones, or atleast not drain their battery, and of course reasonable price (courtesy of Fiio) and portable form factor.

Can it drive power hungry cans like the E12 does?

Well, UHA-6S.MKII has a capability to turn off usb charging, so it won't drain too much battery from your phone.
