FiiO M6 Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player
Bursting with wireless options, streaming apps, battery life, and storage, the FiiO M6 is an uber-portable wingman that outperforms its class.
Wired(less) For Sound
Why does listening to high-def audio require immobilizing our phones, laptops, and tablets with cables? Shouldn’t our mobiles be mobile? Meet the FiiO M6, the magical little portable that transmits rich, high-def audio over Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi 2.4GHz and AirPlay.
We had to do a double-take when we saw which digital-analog converter (DAC) this portable is packing. The ESS ES9018Q2C SABRE DAC is a high performance, 32-bit, 2-channel digital-audio converter that uses Hyperstream architecture and a time domain jitter eliminator. In layman’s terms? That means noiseless, purely streamed audio.
Your Portable Audio Wingman
Weighing less than a computer mouse (2.9 oz) and boasting thirteen hours of playback time, the M6 is the go-anywhere, forget-the-charger-at-home wingman you’ve been waiting for.
Super Versatile Decoder
No matter what sort of files you listen to, the M6 can play them. DSD? Sure, the M6 decodes both DFF and DSF. Lossy? Oh, yeah. The M6 decodes MP3, AAC, WMA, OGG. Lossless? Sure thing: WAV, ALAC, FLAC. It even reads CUE and M3U/M3U8 files.
The M6 comes pre-loaded with FiiO Music, Tidal, NetEase Cloud Music, MOOV, and KKBOX and supports a number of white-listed apps: Spotify, Qobuz, Roon, Deezer, JOOX, ES file manager, Bandcamp, and Sony headphones. There’s an ocean of music out there. Open the (streaming) floodgates!
Save Those Streamed Song For Offline
Streaming is great, but what happens when you’re stuck on a flight without WiFi? The M6 has got you covered with 2GB of internal storage plus a maximum of 2TB external storage on a microSD card.
