Great, but AFAIK, 75 USD is the limit before taxes apply... and that's coming from someone who has someone working in customs in Tel Aviv...

Everything I own is purchased online. It's not that the taxes in Israel are that high, it's that the sellers here use the buyers often gullibility to make 200% profit and use the taxes as an excuse. Taxes or no taxes - it's a chance worth taking. The only time I paid taxes for anything was when I received a shipment of three pairs of headphones via FEDEX and was taxed and fined 100$ because the idiot seller wrote an outrageously low price on the customs declaration and the customs clerk didn't fell for it.

Just found it for sale here. Although I'm in the U.S I'm not sure if I can order it.

Does 169,00 Euro = $200 or so USD? I'm salivating if that's the actual cost!

But it says:

Quote:
 Der Preis von 169€ ist noch nicht offiziell und kann bis zum offiziellen Start korrigiert werden.

Euro exchange reference rate as at 5 September 2013: 1.3202, so 169 Euro = 223 USD.

But it is including tax.

Subscribing! Fiio Rocky ended up dying and I think its time to step up to real dac/amp to go with my GS3.

No, I'm not sure what's up with that link above.  Pre-order?

 

Last official word I've heard from Fiio is that they plan to do a test run of them this month.  It got delayed thanks to some unexpected kinks in the lastest Android release and all of the attention they had focused on the X3.

So, here's a question that some of you may find daft, but...

The new E18 will act as a DAC with Android, whereas with the iPod/iPhone it will only act as an amp...and yet the same music files could be on the Android device as the iPod/iPhone...is that right?

Thank you - So in theory it could be so...?

Looking to get a new phone soon (android), but I'd like to ensure it is compatible with the e18. any idea when a compatibility list might be available? I will probably go for the note 3 if that works..

I think most Samsung flagship works(S3, Note 2, S4...)

post #193 of 1685

Fiio E17 will probably work already with stock international Note III as is working with current S4.

Great gobbly goo!

post #195 of 1685

steveoidm: Get the galaxy s3 version, S4 has worse DAC to begin with and some silly stuff that doesn't matter too much unless you really need the IR stuff and the page flipping with your eyes/hands/etc... lol

 

but honestly there are plenty of other great android phones, samsung are not the start and end all of smartphones.

 

BTW, smartphones and headphones go together... We need Smart Headphones ^_^
