I am also highly interested in this option, as unlikely as it may become.

I like the new location of the gain switch in the front, as compared to the side in the initial renderings. I'm definitely looking forward to getting my hands on this amp. smily_headphones1.gif

So I wonder what the other switch might be then?  What a mystery!

It would be sweet if they managed to keep the bass boost in the final production version, though I'm sure that case design is just a template and won't represent the final product.  Still, one can hope...

bass boost is worthless imo.  If I wanted a bassy sound I'd buy a bassy earphone.

Normally I'd completely understand where you're coming from, but the 20hz boost on the first E12s was really something unique.  I wouldn't mind seeing that make a return on the E12DIY.  I haven't heard the 80hz boost on the second edition, but I'm assuming since its boosting the midbass that probably sounds more like a traditional bass boost.  I know theres a number of others who heard the original E12 and really enjoyed the boost on it, as its far more subtle than say, the bass boost on the JDS C5 I have.

It's not a switch, it's the charge port.

Understandable.  I just like simpler amps without bass boost, crossfeed and whatever else they have now.

I see I see; so many changes from the first mockup.

I like both the silver and the gold cases.

 

The silver looks great with the red lettering. The gold would also look great with red lettering, sort of like Iron Man.

 

One thing I REALLY like about the gold case is its resemblance to a block of gold bullion. Really solid and smart looking!

I think finally our Jim(JamesFiiO) is going to offer the gold enclosure kit alone separately, as a diy kit where we can switch the internals from the original silver(promised).This is the best possible way to compensate the FiiO fans imho.

 

Anyways we gotta have to open the enclosure to snap in and out the OPAMPS....so we just unscrew the PCB and screw it on Gold,boom. vol knob to be a easy changeable solution ofcourse. Is there an alternate way to address the color issue,especially cost-wise both for FiiO and FiiO fans?

 

The kit might cost max $12-$18 retail to FiiO Fans???
