FiiO M6 Portable High Res Music Player features Wi-Fi allowing access to music streaming services, playback of music over DLNA and OTA firmware updates. Airplay offers Apple users quick and convenient playback in excellent quality.
Normally, iPhone and iPad users with only Bluetooth SBC/AAC audio support could only look with envy on Android users which can choose from multiple high-quality wireless audio formats such as LDAC/HWA/aptX HD. However, 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. In addition, 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.
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.
Explore a well-organized user interface with the FiiO-customized 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!
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.
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.
The M6 uses 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 has redesigned and further optimised the audio circuit to squeeze out every last drop of potential from the ESS chip, resulting in a 50% higher power output than the M7.
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 us to create a thoroughly modern player. With its cutting-edge components, FiiO has been able to make the M6 as sleek as contemporary smartphones that lend to a 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.
With the M6, you will find an anodized, CNC aluminium alloy body paired with 2.5D glass, for a curvier and more attractive look. The 3.2" IPS HD touchscreen is a feast for the eyes with its sharpness, bold colours, and bezel-less design. Despite it being hugely versatile, the M6 comes in a tiny size making it extremely easy to handle. Its mini size also makes it effortless to carry around, making it the perfect musical companion whether you are on your commute or just chilling out.
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 harmonize and make using the M6 as comfortable as possible.
The M6 holds the distinction of having some of the cleanest outputs of any FiiO player, with a measured signal-to-noise ratio of ≥118dB and a noise floor of ＜3uV, which ensures you won't hear noise on even the most sensitive earphones.
The USB audio digital output on the M6 is highly capable – not only does it support output at various sampling rates, but it also fully supports DSD with native DSD output up to DSD64/128 and support for the ISO, DFF, and DSF formats. You don't need to stop the music, just connect the M6 as a digital USB jukebox. M6 can playback ISO, DFF, DSF, APE, WAV, FLAC, AIF, AIFF, M4A, WMA, OGG, AAC, ALAC, and MP3 audio formats as well as CUE files and M3U/M3U8 playlists.
With a large battery capacity of 1200mAh, the M6 can playback music for more than 13 hours, and last in deep standby for more than 26 days! When in deep standby mode, the M6 saves much power to enhance battery life but can be woken up instantly, allowing you to listen wherever and whenever you want.
The symmetrical USB Type-C connector is not only easy to plug in from any direction, but it also gives the M6 its highly versatile nature. Through the Type-C connector, with the M6 you can: charge it, transfer data to and from it while connected to a computer, use it as a USB DAC, and even use it as a USB digital jukebox through USB Audio output to other devices!
You no longer have to worry about not carrying your favourite songs with you, with 2GB of built-in storage and support for micro-SD cards up to a whopping 2TB. The M6 has been certified to be “Hi-Res Audio” capable, for truly natural and realistic sound.
