    FiiO Q1MKII just arrived! First impression - it can perfectly drive HD800S to the high levels in single ended! Will try balanced asap.

    The size? Wow, it's so tiny! Impressed!

    John - its only putting 11 mW into 300 ohm via SE. Suggest comparing with another amp before saying it'll drive the HD800S well in SE. It definitely gets it loud, and the HD800S still sounds great (its one of those cans that sounds pretty good on practically anything IMO). But go line-out from the Q1ii into another amp, and try that. Instant improvement. In balanced (45mW into 300 ohm and almost double the voltage) it should have no problem.

    BTW - I have the HD800S and the Q1ii - just did those tests (working on the review) :wink:

    Sure it is just 11 mW in this case. But it's doable, that's the point :) Stronger amp gives always more body to it, of course.

    I'm just curious what is the line-out 'zero' level for Q1ii, when the volume knob is at 100%?

    Not sure - but good question. It doesn't appear to be stated on their website.

    i got my unit today. By far the fastest shipping I've experienced from an AliExpress purchase.

    Listening to Apple Music right now: iPhone 6s (ios 11) - Lightning to USB cable - Q1 MKII - K's Earphone K300 Samsara.

    One word to the describe the experience: Sublime

    I'll unsubscribe from all the Android based DAP threads now. This combo is all I need for streaming music on the go. Well done FiiO!

    does it play nice with hiss sensitive iems like the CFA andros?

    The output amplitude of Q1MKII's lineout is about 1.58V, when the volume knob is at 100%.

    [Edit: Correct the answer from engineer]

    Hey Fiio rep, any idea when this is going to be available in the UK? Cant see it anywhere including my normal place, your UK seller - EA Audio.

    E18 just died and I need a replacement quick!

    Fiio's perception of time is absolutely terrible. I can not think of a single instance when they said something was out/released and it was available...
    You will get much better satisfaction from customers if you state honest times. If you post information on a forum saying its available on amazon now it should be.
    Then you say only a few days more, that was on the 18th...
    Very inexperienced advertising imo.

    Today it showed as available on the Amazon site, so I snatched one up. Supposed to arrive next week. i just have my fingers crossed that it will be compatible with one of the four Android devices I have laying around, even though they said they can't guarantee Android.

    @mike138 I opted to wait longer as shipping times are over a week. Seems they jumped the gun again not having stock in US to prime ship 2 days...lol

    Amazon lists availability as Oct 2.

    today i finally was able to get a hold on a balanced cable for the IT03, ill run some blind testing and some abxing. so far im pretty set for a portable preference with the mark II, ill choose it over the CD5 and the DFB fosho paired with my 6p. the IT03 are kinda picky, so im glad the mark II performed. ill go in depth in the upcoming review. this is a keeper, believe it guys.
