Certainly appears E12 has the low end down pat atm with the current model, (well that's the feeling I'm getting) I just curious if lifting the boost in their next batch will have a positive or negative reaction. I think a few months ago E12 may of interested me, though BH's strong areas you mentioned such as clarity and soundstage are my main focus these days, those are two things Bill-P also mentioned. I also read a post from Bill-P in his thread saying BH has better detailing levels, I will try to demo E12 in the near future, however I am very content atm with size performance, and battery life of BH. it was very interesting reading your opinion on the two. I would probably post that in Bill-P's thread too
Regarding BH's battery, I really don't know how long it will go for I have taken the amp to 50 hours before charging, usually once a month I let my devices run flat to condition the battery so I'll check out this light dimming mystery.
