Verdict: "
It may seem counterintuitive to pay premium smartphone money for a far more limited device, but just a few minutes in the company of the Fiio M11 Pro (along with some similarly talented headphones) will make it seem like money well spent."

Generally

The FiiO M11 Pro in the summary: Building on the success of the FiiO M11, the already excellent player has been "drilled out" and improved. He comes now with an even better D / A converter, a stronger and more refined amplifier section and even more integrated memory.

The highlights of the FiiO M11 Pro at a glance:
  • Android 7.0 as operating system - Highly customized for best sound
  • Uncompromising hardware - 64 GB of internal memory, 3 GB of RAM and 6-core processor
  • Audiophile D / A converter - AKM AK4497EQ in double version for best sound
  • THX AAA gain - Fully balanced and packed with power
  • Full resolution - 5.15 "/ 13.08 inches 18: 9 touch screen with 720p resolution
Android 7.0 as operating system - flexible and powerful

In addition to excellent hardware (we'll come back to that soon), the core of every high-res mobile player is the software that's being used. Does this decide on how well the device can be operated and whether the quality of the underlying hardware is even exhausted.
With the FiiO M11 Pro you can sit back and relax, because this aspect was taken into account from the very beginning and therefore the choice fell on one of the best and most flexible operating systems ever: Android, here in version 7.0. This promises maximum flexibility and the use of numerous popular streaming apps such as Tidal, Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz, Deezer and many more.

But what about the playback quality? Is not Android actually an operating system for smartphones? Well, you could think that. And: you are right. But FiiO would not FiiO, one would use "just" Android as operating system. No, the Android used here has been heavily adapted and optimized to the needs of music enthusiasts. From audiophiles, for audiophiles. And so there is also a separate app for playing music: FiiO Music.

Excellent Hardware - From Soft Facts to Hard Facts

A portable player like the FiiO M11 Pro has to accomplish several feats in parallel. He should come up with a fluid operation, score points with excellent sound and at the same time bring along a battery life that is as long as possible.

6-core processor as heart and brain in the FiiO M11 Pro

No problem if you use one of the best available SoCs (System on Chip) available on the market: The Samsung Exynos 7872 with a structure width of 14 nanometers. This little masterpiece comes right out with six powerful CPU cores that work together to deliver more than enough power for any situation while still being absolutely energy efficient.
The trick is that two of the cores (A73) can be operated at 2 GHz clock, while the other four cores (A53) run at 1.6 GHz clock. Thus, enough computing power is available for each scenario and ensures a smooth and elegant operation

3 GB of RAM provide enough space to work

And so that he does not "run out of steam" even with larger and more elaborate music files, the FiiO M11 Pro comes up with 3 GB of integrated RAM. It does not matter if you're listening to compressed MP3s or completely lossless DSD files: no detail is lost.

64 GB of internal storage - Get started right away

And where we just talk about (or write) enough memory, of course, this also applies to the internal memory and its expandability. With its 64 GB of internal memory and the ability to expand with two MicroSD cards, each with a maximum of 2 TB, should be enough space for the largest collection of music. So you always have the right song for every situation.

You can easily transfer the music directly to the player or MicroSD card via the USB interface, or simply transfer your music directly to the M11 Pro wirelessly via Wi-Fi.

A strong team for best sound - Dual D / A Converter AKM AK4497EQ

The transformation from digital to analogue also involves two absolute specialists. Why two? Well, because the complete circuit design in the FiiO M11 Pro is completely symmetrical.

And because the best is just good enough and the M11 is supposed to earn the "pro" in the name, two converters of the Japanese semiconductor specialist AKM are used here; the AKM AK4497EQ. What sounds sober on the paper (or the screen), has soundly understandable advantages over the "little brother" FiiO M11.
Just make the comparison for yourself and let yourself be surprised what difference the treatment of ones and zeroes by one of the best affordable D / A converter chip but can make.

All to DSD - Because only the best is good enough for your ears

The sonic advantages of DSD are obvious, so why not use them? Just. And this is precisely the potential that FiiO uses for the first time with its M11 Pro.

Each incoming PCM signal (also from external apps) is converted before the actual D / A conversion into noble DSD64 with 2.8 MHz sampling rate and only then processed. This way, every detail is preserved and you enjoy the best possible quality. Also with PCM files. Is not it nice to think about every detail?

THX certified - With the innovative THX AAA circuit on board

The thought leaders of THX® (those who also shot the movie "Star Wars" among others) have come up with a clever amplifier circuit, the THX AAA technology. This innovative technology and the associated rigorous testing procedures are now also used in the FiiO M11 Pro. And this as one of the first high res players worldwide.

This seal guarantees that every THX-certified module, with the same power supply as other modules, delivers a clearly audible, much better sound quality.
This THX AAA-78 amplifier is used in both balanced and unbalanced operation and delivers "full power". The only difference: in symmetrical operation, two amplifier modules are active in parallel, in the unbalanced one only.

In addition, only the finest components work in this module. On the one hand an eight-stage amplifier circuit, a 4-fold independent power supply, a six-layer board layout and high-precision resistors with a maximum of 0.5% tolerance. The result is incredibly low distortion and excellent channel separation for best sound.

Lots of connectivity - Connect what you want

The FiiO M11 Pro is probably the most versatile player so far in terms of sheer number and connectivity options. Below is a list of the numerous variants.

Bluetooth 4.2 - And as a sender and as a receiver

Bluetooth is simply the standard when it comes to delivering high-quality music over short distances. However: Bluetooth is not the same Bluetooth, but also plays the codec used a supporting role. The FiiO M11 Pro makes it easy for you in this matter: It simply supports them all! Starting with the simple SBC via aptX and aptX HD via LDAC and LHDC / HWA, every relevant Bluetooth codec available today is simply on board. And best of all, the M11 Pro not only sends music via Bluetooth, but also receives it! Thus, the player also acts as a high quality Bluetooth receiver (currently with SBC, later with LDAC), which then passes the music through its headphone ports, via USB or the coaxial digital output.

2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WLAN - Music from the NAS and the Internet

Even if the FiiO M11 Pro has a huge storage capacity, sometimes it has to be a bit more. And because of the Wi-Fi with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, the music may also like to come directly from the local NAS or the streaming service of your choice (for example Tidal, Deezer, Spotify, Qobuz). The whole world of music is therefore open to you. Oh, and if you want to listen to music from any of your Apple devices directly from the FiiO M11 Pro: AirPlay is also on board.

Is also wired - for example, via 2-way USB Type-C

Also, the USB Type-C connector is not a one-way street. This allows the FiiO M11 Pro to receive music digitally and to convert it into the best quality via its high-quality D / A converters (max. 384 kHz and 32 bit) and also to transmit as USB transport.

As a transport, the music stored on the player is easily passed in digital form to a DAC behind it, which then decodes your music. Of course it also works via the coaxial digital output.

So obvious, so diverse - The headphone connections

Last but not least; Probably the most common type of connection: the headphones. With all the variety that the FiiO M11 Pro shows, it would be a surprise if one had "saved" here. Well, and so there are not just one or two different connection options; No, they are all three.

You can either connect your headphones classically via the 3.5 mm jack connector, fully symmetrical via the 2.5 mm jack connector or simply via the 4.4 mm jack connector. No matter how, one thing is guaranteed: it always sounds great.

The best possible usability - via the 5.15 "display and via FiiO Link

All the technology and the incredible variety of features become quite simple and clear, with the 5.15 "/ 13.08 cm touch screen. With a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and a maximum of 16.7 million displayable colors, this high-quality IPS display fully exploits all its strengths. So you can not only hear your music in excellent quality, but also see it.

And if you do not feel like operating the player with the integrated touchscreen (for example, because you have it in your pocket or backpack), you will appreciate the "FiiO Link" app. Simply connect the smartphone (currently only Android supported) with the M11 Pro via Bluetooth and control it quite elegantly via the smartphone. It's that easy.

Looks not only beautiful, but also touches - The noble case

The FiiO M11 Pro is an experience in every respect. Sound, visual and tactile. The modern design dispenses completely with curves and relies on a straight, sharp profile, which conveys at first glance: "We are serious!". This impression is underscored by the almost framelessly recessed touch display and the carbon fiber on the back side behind the coated glass.

Only the catchy golden wheel for the volume stands out from the noble and noble black and underlines once again more the valence and the luxury, which radiates this player.

Power needs energy - And that delivers the M11 Pro!

While the THX AAA amplifier module delivers unbelievably clean and undistorted power, it also requires plenty of power. No problem for FiiO, because one has the battery capacity just listened to 4.370 mAh and thus provides an average playing time (depending on the file format, connected headphones and volume set) 9.5 hours at a time. With it, you can easily bridge long working days, train journeys or long-distance flights with your own personal soundtrack.

Also good to know: About Quick Charge 2.0 and / or MediaTek Pump Express is the player within 2.5 hours already fully charged and ready for the next adventure. And if you do not need it, no problem. The battery provides up to 55 days of standby!

Useful accessories are also included in the delivery

To ensure that you enjoy your player for as long as possible and that it survives even minor accidents or falls without damage, the FiiO M11 Pro also comes with the right accessories.

For example, a transparent case is included, as well as a robust tempered glass display protection (applied directly from the factory). It can also go quiet times rougher, the M11 Pro does it.
