FiiO E12DIY Limited Edition Version---DIY your own sound ! - Page 66

post #976 of 1699

I received my NJM5532DD today and they are very transparent as suggested by ClieOS. I miss the bass impact of the OPA1611 slightly, but the 5532s are exceedingly clean.

 

@ClieOS how would you compare the NJM5532 to the Muses01 and Muses02?

On further listening, what I thought was less bass in the 5532 is actually a less-pronounced mid-range. Now I'm not sure which one I prefer. The 5532 is a bit more spacious, but might be placing me too far from the music while the OPA1611 is a little more closed in, but instruments have more presence and weight.

Should add nice OPamps like Muse 01 02 or maybe OPA627 to the poll. So that the owners can have a brief ideas on what kind of nice OP amps we can buy again to pair with this E12DiY. And also can see what kind of more sorts of opamps + buf combo we can go. Personally I love the Muse01 + Buf634 Combo

Agree that it'd be great to see, but it might be confusing because of the need to modify the case and because the current list is just the chips provided with the retail package.

 

Is there a way we can differentiate or create a separate "aftermarket" op amp poll?

I believe they are the same.

I would say 02 is closer to 5532 - but 'close' is just a relative word. As you might have noticed, 5532 does sound different from any of the richer sounding opamp, and MUSES tends to be closer to richer sounding than cleaner sounding.

You can order it from some retailer. The price has gone up a bit since it is a limited run, but most are reasonable around $250 or so.

$299 is SO far under priced for this amp. Grab one - you won't regret it! It's actually the reason I'm selling my Tralucent T1 which retails for $280 and the E12DIY is more than $19 better.

Agreed. You may however find it cheaper on TaoBao with oversea forwarding, but the saving will not be huge. Most likely around $10~$25.

 

Also note that because you are in Australia, the $299 price tag from Noisy Motel will include tax, shipping fee and insurance.

How does it compare to the Matrix Quattro amp?

James, I really thank FiiO for all the effort put into producing the E12DIY! I purchased one from one of your authorized dealers on tmall few days ago and finally received it here in HK today. I am currently testing it with the FiiO X3 and the stock opamp and buffer combo. I must say that even the stock combo sounds great! Coming from listening through the headphone out of the X3, I feel that the E12DIY's AD8620 + BUF634 combo with the X3's DAC sounds pretty brilliant itself! Classical orchestral music sounds so much more detailed and has a wider soundstage... I am happy with my purchase! :)

p/s: I actually ordered a Gold E12DIY but the seller sent me a Silver one. Not a big deal actually because silver looks pretty too! And after all, the sound is what matters the most!
