If you have any questions regarding the FiiO E18 I can try to answer them from an end user's standpoint.

Do you own a wireless charger and, if so, have you tried using it, your S3, a wireless charger, a receiver (either the OEM wireless back cover or a third-party receiver placed over the battery) and the E18 together?  My understanding is that the E18's charger doesn't kick in while you're listening to the DAC section.  I'd love to know if a Qi charger does.

Sorry I am not using such a charger so I don't know.

Right, while using the E18 as a DAC it does not charge the phone.

Anyone know where in HK I can get one? Are they in most of the retail shops or only directly from Fiio at the moment?

I think it is better to ask FiiO. The only place I saw one in HK was at one of the headphone stores at Golden Arcade Computer centre. The store is almost opposite DMA Audio store.

I was at the Wan Chai electronics mall last week and one of the shops told me that they were expecting it in about a month. I would like to know if it can be had sooner here in HK as well.

As I said it is in stock in a store at Golden Arcade Computer Centre. And today a saw it at one of the shops at basement floor of Prosperity Building in Mong Kok. Entering from Nelson Street I think it was the second shop on the left.

Waiting for some answer to my question by some owner..

 

Now, here is a thought.  Info display is out of E18 in comparison to E17.  Display adds thickness, weight, battery drain, and extra cost - perhaps that was a rational behind removing it.  But with usb OTG connection where your smartphone is a host and E18 is a peripheral device, why wouldn't the host can have an access with a remote display through some kind of an app/widget?  Wouldn't it make sense to develop such app/widget to work along with E18 to monitor all the extra internal functions?  Just a wishful thinking...

Can you please post a picture of your phone next to E18?  Would be great to see how does it look stacked.

Ehhhm, sorry the only cam i have right now is that of my smartphone. Pls check CliOS' preview for size comparision or FiiO's product page: http://www.fiio.com.cn/products/index.aspx?ID=100000049935442&MenuID=105026002

The E18 fits nicely under my Galaxy S3. In fact it's just a bit shorter than Galaxy S3/S4 and about the same in width.

This is a great idea! Hope Fiio would develop an app where we can find these informations!

Does anybody have James's email address? If so could someone PM it to me? It would be much appreciated. 

 

Thanks!

Just a couple questions regarding the E18.. if I'm using this on my computer, would I be able to plug my 3.5mm microphone into this? If not, could I use a microphone /headphone merger cord and stick it into the headphone Jack?
Also- price? I saw somebody mention around 180, but for some reason I keep thinking 150. Can anybody clarify?
