The Seductive Fiio M11 Pro Digital Audio Player In The House! First Impressions And Unboxing Pics!

Fiio’s M11 Digital Audio Player had some pretty beefy specs, but evidently that wasn’t good enough because now we have the jam-packed Fiio M11 Pro. In this new version, they upgraded the DAC chips to two flagship AKM “Velvet Sound” chips, doubled the storage from 32GB to 64GB, put in a Fully-Balanced THX-Certified amp section, along with a bigger battery.

This thing is beautiful, super-fast, with a ridiculously transparent sound no matter the volume level. Just from a couple of hours listening, I’m in love. I haven’t scratched the surface when it comes to all the features on this thing, so I’ll have a lot more to cover in the full review. Stay tuned!
