This will probably go very cold, as it's too specialised a gizmo, but hopefully the right people will see it, if they are unaware. Normally I wouldn't post anything from Deal Extreme, but this is a bit different, and probably a bit special, so I decided to give it a go. I have already preordered mine. It's below the threshold for customs to bother with, which is always a big plus.

If you want any info on the E5, the manufacturers website is here.

There's a lot of reading to be had on the 71 page thread on the E5 at Head-Fi forums here.

Hot from me! I have a Boostaroo that I had to dig out to use with my Tytn II which has a pathetic full volume and have been after something more compact. This looks nice!

Thanks for the heads up! Rich

Oh! And the EU volume cap is new to me! So should I get my next iPod from the US if I want to go louder!!

the new ipods / iphones purchased in the UK do not have the volume limitation, if you happen to be unfortunate enough to get one from the continent just jailbreak it and the latest version automatically removes the limitation

or SHH in and remove

Haha, so I was. I must have been drunk, judging from my temperament. Half my posts here are when I'm ******, and I enjioy being an **** at those times just to irritate people. I did check first, search never came up with anything.

I don't agree with any of my drunken rantings.

Wow, I'm a real **** when I'm drunk.

How embarrassing. I think I have a problem and should get some help. Thing is I own an E3 amp, and bought one for a friend as well. Can't believe I dismissed that post. I've been waiting for the E5 for ages. May the mods do with me as they see fit.
