When developing the M9, we at FiiO saw that there wasn't any one player that combined all of the functions people want. Was there a player that could transmit the HWA/aptX/aptX HD/LDAC lossless Bluetooth codecs, even when used as a USB DAC? What about something that also contained a highly optimized audio circuit for excellent sound quality? Did any players also give the user an experience worthy of a flagship, capable of many features including Wi-Fi music streaming all in a slick interface? We sought to change that with the M9 – which does all of this and more
- Orderly design
The all-aluminum body combines both straight and rounded edges in an unique design, with the gentle curve of the left side naturally transitioning to the bold straight lines of the right side.
- LG IPS touchscreen
The 3.2 inch IPS screen is capable of 16 million colors and 5-point touch which allows you to easily operate your device showing the finest of details.
- USB Type-C
The USB Type-C allows it to not only be used as a USB DAC but also allows output of digital audio signals to other devices through USB.
- 2GB coupled with 2TB
The M9 comes with a healthy 2GB of storage, but the storage can be expanded up to a massive 2TB with micro-SD cards!
- Bluetooth formats--Play them all
The M9 uses Bluetooth 4.2 and supports virtually all Bluetooth formats: aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC.
- Dual AK4490EN DACs
The two AK4490EN DACs feature a high signal-to-noise ratio, exceptional dynamic range, and low distortion – making for a precise yet exciting sound signature.
- 2.5mm+3.5mm outputs
The M9 contains both single-ended 3.5mm and balanced 2.5mm audio jacks, for even more ways to listen with your headphones.
- Wi-Fi Music Streaming
Pre-installed apps: NetEase Cloud Music, MOOV, Tidal and KKBOXS;
- Unique RGB light indicator
It shows what audio format you are listening to as well as its overall status, with the indicator status showing red to remind you to charge your device.
- USB DAC functionality
The M9 can be used as an asynchronous USB DAC with both Macs and Windows PCs.
- USB audio out
The M9 supports USB audio out (send digital audio bits through USB), with even support for DoP/D2P.
- Deeply customized OS
It allows you to navigate through menus at an astonishing speed and with amazing ease due to the carefully thought out customized user interface.
