FiiO E7... user manual.

With its releasing date getting closer and closer, I got the permission from FiiO to show you guys what is cooking with in E7, their upcoming portable amp + DAC, with its user manual. While we have seen sample picture of it outer beauty, I am sure those of who have an interest in entry class portable amp will find this user manual well worth reading.

Here are the main features:

  • USB audio decoding and output for PC, functioning as a high quality external USB soundcard*;
  • Texas Instruments‟ PCM2706 serves as USB receiver. For better sound quality, a Wolfson WM8740 serves as digital-to-analog convertor (DAC), pairing with a high performance operational amplifier from ADI for the DAC circuit;
  • Build-in headphone amplifier utilizing Texas Instruments‟ OPA2338 and TPA6130A as pre- and power-amp for high performance, good resolution, low distortion, and powerful output;
  • Standard 3.5mm stereo line-in jack for portable amplification with conventional audio source;
  • Dual 3.5mm headphone output jack. Convenient design makes it easy to share music between two listeners;
  • World‟s first portable headphone amplifier with dual colors OLED display;
  • Easy to use digital volume control function with great precision and channel balance;
  • Build-in EQ for 3 levels of Bass Boost;
  • Build-in rechargeable 1050 mAH Li-ion battery for 80 hours of continuous operation**;
  • Specialized dock for connecting E9*** to experience an even higher performance;
  • Quality anodized aluminum satin finish case design, small and compact, ideal to be wrapped together with digital audio player;
  • User selectable USB charging function to help prolong battery lifespan and lower distortion from power supply circuit;
  • User definable startup volume memory and maximum volume limiter to protect user from hearing damage due to loud volume;
  • Automatic keylock feature;
  • User definable sleep timer function and total runtime display****.
* This model supports driverless plug and play on Windows XP, Windows 2000, Vista, Windows 7, and various Mac OS.
** Full battery charge via computer USB port after 200 minutes and capable of 80 hours of continuous operation, tested under laboratory condition for evaluative purpose only.
*** E9 is a desktop amplifier with greater output, better performance and an integrated E7 specified dock connector. With the dock, E7 can easily establish a line-out connection with E9 and transform both together into a high performance desktop amp with USB decoding function, capable of PC connection and recharging functions, etc.
**** Total system runtime will accumulate from the first use. It will be reset to zero after either reset button is pressed, reloading default setting, or when the battery depleted.
