The FiiO E17 has earned its 4.5 star rating on Head-Fi by combining excellent performance, elegant industrial design, and affordability. The FiiO E17 features a 24bit/96khz DAC to decode your audio with pinpoint accuracy and a solidstate amplifier to articulate the detail in your tracks. This all-in-one audio solution is compact and elegant with solid aluminum housing and minimal size.
The FiiO E17 (Alpen) weighs less than an iPhone so, even with its aluminum housing, it wont feel like you've added much weight to your daily carry. In addition to its portability, the applications for this device are many and varied. Need a portable amp for your 30-pin equipped apple source? No problem. Want a DAC/AMP to improve your laptop's sound? Easy. Want to decode input via coax? You get the idea.
The FiiO E17 features a proprietary FiiO port through which you can connect it to the E9 desktop headphone amp. This charges your E17, makes use of its DAC capabilities, and cuts out the need for a dedicated desktop DAC.
