Already up on the Fiio Website, very interesting....

 

http://www.fiio.net/products/index.aspx?ID=100000060421524&MenuID=105026001

 

I just noticed a mistype on the page for the original E12 @JamesFiiO @Joe

 

Dimensions:
124×66.5×14.5(mm)

 

But on the measure photo it states 65.5

I'm happy that I saw this before pulling the trigger on an E12. There's no way I could justify going into the DIY so I'm hoping that this should be a nice step for IEM's. I've read more about Fiio than I've even had time to listen to, but I'm optimistically hopeful for something awesome. :smile:

wait what does it mean by balanced? 3.5mm trrs jack like hifimans?

balanced means 2 separate cables for the left and right channels to the headphone, to reduce stereo crosstalk. Some headphone amps support this, but im not too sure about the E12A.

hows the muses02 compared to other opamps? or compare this to the e11k?

 

this isn't banaced, just standard stereo out. check the website for spec info.

it will be better than the E11k for sure (there have been some comparisons between the E12 and E11k, and this is supposed to be an improvement on the E12)

i dont know much about the E12DIY, but fiio basically put the favourite E12DIY combo (which consists of the muse02) into the E12A

Can someone dissect what differentiates this from the former version, and if there will somehow be a sound quality decrease if I use say a pair of Brainwavz HM5 with this versus the regular E12?

but the muses02 is inferior to the 01 right?

Hmmm... I really do not know about all this.Maybe you could go over to the FiiO E12DIY thread and ask the people there.

It would be interesting to know the differences with the previous Fiio E12.

What the balanced outputs, if take as Hifiman. Would function with Fiio X3 using a base?

See if they come out more details on this new portable amp.

btw how much will this retail, $180-$200 like the e12DIY? isn't it a bit too much for just the unit minus all the opamps and buf that came with the DIY version?

 

if james reads this, suggestion: change the muses 02 to the muses 01 + LME49600 setup. :P no wait, someone said in the opamp forum that they sound the same? really?
