Fiio M6 Hi Res Music Player

 

Fiio have released another model in their huge resolution M series of digital audio players. With smartphone-like portability and audiophile-level sound, the M6 Portable High-Resolution Lossless Wireless Music Player from FiiO is designed to fully embrace hi-end wireless audio reproduction. The M6 utilises dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2 and supports a wide array of high-res formats, such as 24-bit aptX HD, LDAC, and HWA hi-res Bluetooth audio. As convenient as wireless is, you can still hook up the M6 to your computer and use it as an asynchronous USB DAC for 192 kHz/24-bit audio decoding.

 

Powering all of this audio power is the Samsung Exynos 7270 processor and ESS SABRE 9018Q2C, which is a combo DAC and amp in a single chip. As with the variety of playback options, you have a variety of control options with the M6. Use FiiO Link to control the M6 from your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone, or directly operate the M6 through its 3.2" 2.5D curved glass touchscreen. However you use it, the M6 is engineered to give you all-day entertainment with a 1200mAh LiPo battery that gives you over 13 hours of playback.

Features...

Total musical immersion with a single DAC package

The M6 utilises the same proven high-performance ESS Sabre 9018Q2C chip that combines a capable DAC and a robust amp in one package, the same as the M7. However, with the M6 Fiio have redesigned and further optimised the audio circuit to squeeze out every last drop of potential from the ESS chip, resulting in 50% higher power output than the M7. Who says you need multiple chips for excellent sound quality when Fiio can do it with just one?
 

Ready for the future based on the past experience

The M6 is the third product from FiiO based on the Samsung Exynos 7270, and the experience Fiio now have with the platform has allowed them to create a thoroughly modern player. With its cutting-edge components, Fiio have been able to make the M6 as sleek as contemporary smartphones that lends it its stunning appearance in your hand while remaining extremely comfortable. And the M6 is prepared for the future now with its built-in Wi-Fi and full Bluetooth format support.
 

Give your computer some serious sound capabilities

When connected to your computer, not only does the M6 work as an asynchronous USB DAC supporting up to 192kHz/24 bit decoding, it can also function as a Bluetooth transmitter of all formats including LDAC, aptX, aptX HD, and SBC. When connected to Mac computers no driver installation is necessary, while a dedicated driver is required for Windows computers.
 

Full Bluetooth format support for truly lossless playback

The M6 comes with dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2, and supports every high-resolution wireless format to date, including: 24-bit aptX HD (backwards compatible with aptX), LDAC, and HWA Hi-Res Bluetooth Audio. No matter whatever wireless high-resolution audio device you may have, you can be sure the M6 will take advantage of it.

 

High fidelity sound for Apple users

With the M6, users with iOS devices can simply beam their music to the M6 via AirPlay to quickly and conveniently play songs in excellent quality.

 

Fully and delightfully listen to music whenever

The M6 is also equipped with Wi-Fi, allowing it to access music streaming services, play music over DLNA, and even receive OTA firmware updates.

 

A music player, but also a capable Bluetooth amplifier

When set to be in the Bluetooth receiver mode, the M6 transforms into a high-quality Bluetooth amplifier, with significantly better frequency response, as well as lower distortion, noise floor, and crosstalk compared to typical Bluetooth solutions. On top of that, the M6 can also output any received Bluetooth signals through the coaxial out to an external decoder. With the M6, you can enjoy truly divine sound over the wireless convenience of Bluetooth.

 

(Re)discover your songs with third-party apps

Explore a well-organised user interface with the FiiO-customised Android OS on the M6. Pre-installed apps designed to integrate seamlessly with this interface include NetEase Cloud Music, MOOV, Tidal, and KKBOX. And you can install other whitelisted apps, too. Be prepared to rediscover your old music and discover new songs with these apps! 
 

Take control from your phone with FiiO Link

New to the M6 is the FiiO Link functionality. After pairing your smartphone and the M6 via Bluetooth, you can remotely control the M6 as well as display its current playing status.

Simplicity is at its finest when it understands your needs

The easy-to-hold, compact body of the M6 is simple, yet put together specifically to meet your needs. Four buttons are placed to help you quickly navigate the menus, while the 2.5D glass provides a smooth yet natural transition between the glass and metal body, and even the charging indicator is subtly hidden in the top right corner of the screen to be informative yet unobtrusive. All of the elements of the M6's seemingly simple design come together to harmonise and make using the M6 as comfortable as possible.
 

What noise?
