FiiO E12DIY Limited Edition Version---DIY your own sound ! - Page 20

post #286 of 2221

A separately available gold case would be great. Folks getting the E12DIY will receive a silver case, which was jointly decided on, with an opportunity to also have a gold case. The best of both worlds.

 

I guess the gold case will be available for the E12DIY only? The stock E12 has cutouts for crossfeed and bass boost switches that I assume the E12DIY will not have. So the gold case will not offer access to those switches? Does that sound about right?

 

Also, did James spec the red lettering on the silver case? I think red lettering looks a lot sharper than black on the silver background.

 

Cool stuff!

Yeah the same concept had been posted a while ago....like FiiO can offer golden enclosure with a additional reasonable price as an add-on.

 

Well you might be right that E12DIY might not have CF and BB toggle OR might be placed in different place. Else the existing E12(Black) will have an golden opportunity to have color lift if those are planned to retain at the same place by our Jim....WoW!

Come on guys, it says on the first page that CF and BB have been removed from the DIY.

my bad.....is it really confirmed yet? as it might change at the 11th hr just like the gold color option Jim planning for. :D

I hope not. I don't want any additional circuitry in the design other than the opamp and buffers. I have my C421 for bass boost. Having owned an Arrow amp I never used the cross feed except for very rare 60s rock recordings that had ridiculous panning.

Yes, no confusion over the CF and BB being removed from the E12DIY, here. 

 

I was just wondering if the separately available gold case would be specifically fabricated for the E12DIY (no CF or BB cutouts) or whether it would be a more universal case (would have cutouts for CF and BB so owners of stock E12 would be able to use retrofit on standard units).

 

Very cool in either case. No pun intended!

May be FiiO honor no Warranty in this case for the existing stock E12 customers, should FiiO offer that option.....so that's not going to benefit.

so far we still waiting for the IC from our supplier, so there are nothing to share :mad: .  our supplier told us that none do this before, order so many expensive OP amp and so many different models.

Opamp are still mostly manufactured in USA and Japan actually. Going to an official business channel also take much more time than the 'unofficial' supplier / broker. But in return you don't have to worry about getting any fake or 2nd hand parts.
