News On New FiiO E5 Headphone Amplifier.

News direct from FiiO factory on the E5 sent to me by PM today. Recharge batteries included, metal case for better RFI Shielding (No photos at present time though) and under $20:

Dear Steven:
Thanks for your interesting in our E5, the detail information now are available in head-fi, you may read the thread! and about the retail price, I can tell you what would happen in china mainland market, it will be about 16USD , but about the oversea market or ebay, consider of the shipping cost, I can't tell you the price!

So, you can see ,the price is very reasonable for a metal case , with a MCU controller inside, rechargerable-battery, and upgrade sound quality!

Also, we are thinking about maybe we can develop a desktop DAC with headphone output, digital amp , so those people like music can uses laptop PC/mini PC as a digital music source! of course, We will keep the price in a reasonable price level!

Thanks and best regards!

They are also thinking about a DAC unit version, would that be the E7?
