    Super pumped for E30 as until now E10K was my favorite FiiO device - sturdy and pretty cheap but sounds excellent.
    Wound you mind sharing the DAC chips and the op-amps used?
    Thanks

    I love the USB 1.0/2.0 switch that allows it to easily go driverless with any PC.

    Same power as Q1mkII? Looking for something that can power T50RP headphones on my PC. Love my Q1mkII but it's not high powered.

    It's almost the same as Q1Ⅱ. If you want more power, I suggest you use the 2.5 balanced output, but I don't know if your headset can be used like this.

    Yes, balanced is working great for my other planars on the Q1mkII. The Fostex's would have to be modified to run balanced.

    Thanks for the info!

    The circular silica pad used by E10K is easy to fall off.
    So this time it will chang into a rectangle. And mark the 4pcs in the package.
    I have compared EVA, Rubber and Foam gaskets.
    EVA is too soft and easy to break. Rubber is easy to stick to dust.
    The most suitable one is the foam (PORON vhm-15). like this.

    This runs off of USB power and has no battery right?

    Looks like a nice entry level desktop setup.

    Yes, Plug USB and play.
    With USB Driver-free mode: No need to install any drive once you select the "driver-free" mode.

    I cut my teeth in this hobby with my first ever Dac/amp combo E17, then the E10, still have the E10. Was such a great experience back then, the sound at the time was marvelous!

    Glad to see Fiio still working hard on their product line up, I have a feeling this thing is gonna be HYPE! A small little unit that can do 2.5mm balanced out, quite a few peripherals that this thing is going to support at your desktop is seriously a great value buy!

    How much they asking for E30 @demond?
     
  12. demond
    Thank you. The price is about 100 dollars.
    At present, we have completed the engineering prototype assembly, probably listened to it, the sound is the kind I like.

    Excellent ! Cannot wait to get my hands on one! you can send me sample for "testing" any time (not suspicious at all -_- )
    I hope it won't be too expensive in Poland :p
    My e10k is just holding with double sided tape and it's ok but the new feet is a nice upgrade.
    One thing I hope gets better is handling of bass boost. With e10k, the sound seems more flat/hollow with bass off than on other devices. Like if something is missing.
    So even though, the bass boos is an optional mode, it is the preferred listening mode for me despite a little bit of clipping on some tracks. It sounds really nice and warm with koss porta pro overall.
    One thing that fiio does, that others do not is line out in the back. That's great - my mackie speakers are connected on the back.

    Also - my e10k does have some popping when music starts/stops but it might have more to do with how windows handles usb audio than fiio itself.
