August 10, 2011 by Alex in Amp, Audio, DAC, Fiio with No Comments.

Fiio's latest amp has been spotted on It is the E17 and according to the company, it is a follow-up product to their ever-popular E7 Amp/DAC. At the moment we've only got a Fiio rendering image of the new Amp/DAC, but from that we can already tell that it'll have that sleek Fiio style, similar to the E7 minus the full front face screen. The E17 instead has a smaller screen within its metal front which also houses seemingly all of the buttons. We don't yet know the specs or release date of the E17, but check out the rendered image after the break to get your "can't wait" squeals on. via head-fi

Fiio E15 A “Desktop” DAC? Also, 192k/24bit

March 22, 2011 by HS in Amp, Audio, DAC, Fiio with 1 Comment.

There has been wild speculation on what Fiio's next USB DAC will be (and whatever will be the successor to the E7 pictured above) - at first it was thought that the E17 was being worked on, but recently a Fiio rep on the Head-Fi forums revealed some information: "We had decided to develop E15 first, and them we can move the same DAC converter, 96k/24bit converter and some other technology  into E17, it can decrease the risk of R/D and save some time. btw, E15 is more like a desktop E17 because some people ask us to develop such model." "... E15 will support below decoder. USB: 96K/24Bit Digital input ( coaxial and optical): 192K/24Bit Line in: RCA." via head-fi
