FiiO has just launched the M15s, a high-end portable music player that offers exceptional audio quality and a whole host of innovative features. It's the perfect blend of desktop DAC/Amp capabilities with the convenience of a portable player. Let's dive into the details of this amazing device.
Desktop and Portable Dual Power Supply Modes
One of the standout features of the M15s is its ability to switch between desktop and portable power supply modes. This means you can enjoy robust performance whether you're at home or on the go. In dedicated desktop mode, the M15s transforms into a desktop device and works completely without the battery while under USB fast charging.
Five Gain Levels for Versatile Listening
FiiO has designed the M15s with five adjustable gain levels, making it easy to drive a wide variety of IEMs and headphones. You can choose from ultra-high, super-high, high, medium, and low gain levels when using battery power, or select the enhanced over-ear headphone gain level under USB power for undistorted power output up to 1200mW per channel.
Six Operating Modes for Every Audiophile
No matter your listening preferences, the M15s has you covered with six different operating modes:
Roon Ready Mode: Certified Roon Ready for serious music
