FiiO M11 Plus LTD - The last of its kind?
The FiiO M11 Plus LTD in summary: The FiiO M11 is already something of an icon among portable FiiO players. Now, for now, it comes to an end with the FiiO M11 Plus LTD, the strictly limited special edition with the AKM AK4497EQ dual DAC, 8-core processor, Android 10 and much more.
The highlights of the FiiO M11 Plus LTD at a glance:
Committed to first-class sound - Dual-DAC AKM AK4497EQ integrated.
8-core Snapdragon 660 processor on board - Powerful and energy-efficient at the same time
THX AAA amplification - Fully balanced and equipped with plenty of power
Android 10 as operating system - Flexible to use, intuitive and beautiful
True communication talent - 2-way Bluetooth, 2.4/5 GHz WiFi and more
Dual-DAC AKM AK4497EQ at work - The last of its kind
FiiO M11 Plus LTD Black
Anyone with even a passing interest in first-class hi-fi will have heard or read about the fatal fire at the factory of Japanese semiconductor specialist AKM. The company that stands for first-class sounding digital/analogue converters like no other - and whose production came to a standstill for a long time due to the accident. So long, in fact, that the AKM AK 4497EQ dual DAC disappeared from the market "overnight". Luck of the draw: FiiO was able to secure a small contingent of the coveted converters and is now using them in the strictly limited FiiO M11 Plus LTD, of which only 6,000 are available worldwide in black and 1,000 in stainless steel. But what actually makes this transducer so special?
In addition to its impressive capabilities on paper (DSD512, 32/768 bit/kHz and 131 dB signal-to-noise ratio), it convinces with a sensationally smooth, natural and brilliant sound that will make you experience your music in a new way.
Sounds too good to be true? Make the comparison and see for yourself what a difference the treatment of ones and zeros by this transducer duo makes.
Energy-efficient and smooth operation - thanks to Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor
The FiiO M11 Plus LTD is powered by Qualcomm's blazingly fast Snapdragon 660. The structure of the processor follows the Big.LITTLE concept - four powerful cores are used for computationally intensive tasks and four energy-saving cores for less demanding processes. On the one hand, this ensures that the M11 Plus LTD always responds smoothly to operating inputs, but on the other hand, it also plays music all day long.
Besides the processor itself, the rest of the equipment is also impressive. Namely, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory (expandable up to 2 TB via MicroSD) and an Adreno 512 graphics processor that cuts a fine figure in videos and games.
THX Certified - With the innovative THX AAA circuitry on board
The masterminds behind THX® (they're the ones who made the movie "Star Wars", among other things) came up with a clever amplifier circuit called THX AAA technology. This innovative technology and the rigorous testing procedure associated with it are now also used in the FiiO M11 Plus LTD. And it's one of the first High Res players in the world to do so.
This seal guarantees that every THX-certified module delivers a clearly audible, significantly better sound quality with the same power supply as other modules.
This THX AAA-78 amplifier is used in both balanced and unbalanced operation and delivers "full power". The only difference: In balanced mode, two amplifier modules are active in parallel, in unbalanced mode only one.
In addition, only the finest components work in this module. For one thing, an eight-stage amplifier circuit, a 4-fold independent power supply, a six-layer PCB layout and high-precision resistors with a maximum tolerance of 0.5%. The result is incredibly low distortion and excellent channel separation for the best sound.
Shields up! - Outside interference doesn't stand a chance
As nice as it is to talk and exchange with each other: With electrical circuits, this is definitely undesirable. That's why FiiO has not only completely redesigned the main circuit board of the M11 Plus LTD and consistently separated the digital and analogue circuits, but also shielded them from external influences using appropriate metal sheets.
This measure once again underlines the consistency, respect and love that FiiO Musik has for the best possible sound.
Android 10 as the operating system - flexible, intuitive and beautiful
The built-in hardware plays a major role in the complete musical experience - but not alone. It forms the basis for it, but in the end it is also the software that controls the hardware that decides what comes out in the end. And because FiiO leaves nothing to chance with the M11 Plus LTD, they have chosen what is probably the most flexible and versatile operating system available: Android!
And as good as Android already sounds in its "factory state", it still has a lot of potential for further improvements. This is a challenge that FiiO is happy to take on and has optimised the operating system down to the smallest detail. This makes listening to music twice as much fun.
Plenty of connectivity - something for everyone
FiiO M11 Plus LTD with FiiO BTA30
Whatever connection you're thinking of, the FiiO M11 Plus LTD has it - guaranteed. Both wirelessly and in the classic wired way. The following standards and connections are on board the FiiO M11 Plus LTD:
Bluetooth 5.0 - And that as a transmitter and as a receiver.
Bluetooth is still the king among wireless protocols when it comes to a fast and uncomplicated connection between transmitter and receiver. With Bluetooth 5.0, the FiiO M11 Plus LTD not only adds a high range and interference resistance, but also an enormous variety of standards. In addition to SBC and AAC, aptX, aptX-HD and LDAC are also available in the transmitter direction.
And the best thing about it: The M11 Plus LTD not only sends music via Bluetooth, but also receives it! This means that the player also functions as a high-quality Bluetooth receiver; and it does so via SBC, AAC and LDAC. The player then outputs the music received in this way as usual via its headphone connections, via USB or the coaxial digital output and ensures the best sound.
2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WLAN - music from NAS and the Internet
Even though the FiiO M11 Plus LTD has a huge storage capacity, sometimes you need a little more. And thanks to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WLAN, the music can come directly from the NAS at home or from the streaming service of your choice (e.g. Tidal, Deezer, Spotify, Qobuz). The whole world of music is thus open to you.
Oh, and if you want to listen to music from one of your Apple devices directly via the FiiO M11 Plus LTD: AirPlay is also on board, which is a great alternative to the (under Apple) limited Bluetooth protocol AAC).
Also works wired - for example via 2-way USB Type-C
FiiO M11 Plus LTD as a DAC on a notebook
The USB Type-C connection is not a one-way street either. The FiiO M11 Plus LTD can receive music digitally and convert it to the highest quality via its high-quality D/A converter (maximum 32-bit/384 kHz and DSD128) and pass it on, but it can also work as a USB transport. As a USB transport, the music stored on the player is simply passed on in digital form to a DAC connected behind it, which then decodes your music. Of course, this also works via the coaxial digital output.
So obvious, so versatile - the headphone connections
Bottom of the FiiO M11 with the connections
Last but not least; probably the most frequently used connection type: the headphones. With all the diversity that the FiiO M11 Plus LTD displays, it would probably be a surprise if they had "skimped" here. Well, there are not just one or two different connection options; no, there are all three.
You can connect your headphones either classically via the 3.5 millimetre jack connection, fully balanced via the 2.5 millimetre jack connection or simply via the balanced 4.4 millimetre jack connection. And if all that isn't enough: the 3.5 mm jack output can also function as a coaxial digital output if desired. No matter how you connect the FiiO M11 Plus LTD, one thing is guaranteed: It always sounds great.
The best possible usability - Via the 5.5" display and via FiiO Link
All the technology and the incredible variety of functions are made easy and clear with the 5.5"/13.97 centimetre touch display. With a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and a maximum of 16.7 million displayable colours, this high-quality IPS display plays to all its strengths. So you can not only listen to your music in excellent quality, but also see it.
And if you don't feel like operating the player via its integrated touch display (for example, because you have it in your pocket or backpack), you will appreciate the "FiiO Link" app. Simply connect your smartphone (currently only Android is supported) to the M11 Plus LTD via Bluetooth and control it elegantly from your smartphone. It couldn't be simpler.
Not only does it look good, it also feels good - the elegant housing
FiiO M11 Plus LTD Stainless Steel Front and Back
The FiiO M11 Plus LTD is an experience in every respect. Sonically, visually and also haptically.
The modern design dispenses completely with curves and relies on a straightforward, sharply cut profile that conveys at first glance: "We mean business!".
This impression is underlined by the almost frameless touch display and the carbon fibre behind coated glass on the back.
And here, too, there is another innovation compared to its predecessors: the rotary wheel for volume control has disappeared or been replaced by two physical buttons embedded in the housing. This saves space and makes the FiiO M11 Plus LTD even easier to carry in your pocket. But there's more: in addition to the buttons on the housing, the volume can also be conveniently controlled with a swipe of the touch display, via Bluetooth and via FiiO Link. It's all in your hands!
Power needs power - and the M11 Plus LTD delivers!
The M11 Plus LTD is packed to the brim with smart technology and powerful electronics. Of course, all these innovations and high performers need energy to guarantee the best sound.
To ensure that you still have good music in your ears all day long, FiiO has given the M11 Plus LTD a gigantic battery with 6,000 mAh capacity. This results in a maximum of 11.5 hours of runtime (depending on the volume setting, the headphones used and the selected file format). And if the battery does run out at some point, it is fully charged and ready for use again within about three hours thanks to QuickCharge 2.0/3.0/4.0 or USB Power Delivery 2.0 (applies to QC4.0).
Also good to know: Via Quick Charge 2.0 and/or MediaTek Pump Express, the player is fully charged again within 2.5 hours and ready for the next adventure. And if you don't need it, that's no problem either. The battery provides up to 55 days of standby!
The matching accessories are also included
To ensure that you can enjoy your player for as long as possible and that it also survives minor accidents or falls undamaged, the FiiO M11 Plus LTD also comes with the matching accessories.
A leatherette case is included in the scope of delivery, as well as a factory-applied tempered glass screen protector. And for an optimal connection, FiiO also includes the matching USB 3.0 cable to quickly transfer data to and from the player and to ensure an optimal charging process.
