  • We designed and fabricated HeadRoom headphone amps for over 20 years so we like to think we know when we hear a real good one. Case in point, the extremely impressive FiiO E17 Alpen has won our jaded team's heart and ears with truly stellar performance plus a superb feature set, all at a reasonable price. The E17 Alpen's internal DAC offers excellently clear, warmly detailed D-to-A conversion direct from the digital USB or optical/SPDiF feed of your PC, Apple or Windows computer or a CD/DVD player. The E17 Alpen also delivers a plainly audible acoustic improvement for iPod and iPhone via an analog 3.5mm (1/8') line-input using the FiiO L9 line-out cable (or another similar interconnect). The bottom of the E17 unit contains a dedicated AUX 3.5mm line-input for your other analog audio sources. Line-out by-pass switch allows direct feed for use as a 'stand-alone' DAC with the FiiO E09K 'partner' desktop component, for example. The slim-profile E17 Alpen metal casing is sleek and solidly engineered with an intuitive design and positive-feel buttons on the front panel for power, input selection and feature menu control.FiiO E17
