Separate names with a comma.
yeah , the BTR3 turns my Note 8 into a half way decent music player
I'm finding that the M11 bluetooth with AptX HD, when paired with a similarly capable receiver (I use the Blu-Dento HD), and flac source material, is easily good enough to work well with my not-audiophile-grade stereo system. It sounds _great_. Will Is till think so if I upgrade my stereo? Don't know. I'm thinking about it so perhaps we'll find out.
I would be leary about lower quality bluetooth codecs, so I shun anything that isn't AptX HD, and it's one of the reasons I bought the M11. Of course there isn't much AptX HD stuff out there to buy, so that's a challenge, but more rolls out every day.
That said, wires for the win, I'm not putting together a deliberate bluetooth ecosystem, just using it where and when it's convenient. But if I want quality I use wires.
(And of course I also use it with my headphones, but the convenience of bluetooth is great, and using the M11 as the central source of ALL my music feeds is also great. Good music wherever I go and whatever I'm listening to).
yeah, Im a great user of BT when it's convenient and it does sound fine. One thing I'd like to see in the Fiio app is Chromecast support. I know the M11 can do CC, I run CloudPlayer on it and use CC regularly. Seems like an odd omission for the "swiss army knife" of players.
Only if you approach this on an emotional basis
My niece has an iPod and I know how it sounds, I also had M11 and I can clearly feel the difference in sound between the two devices. To hear the difference between different devices, you need to listen to them with good headphones, at least at the level of Fiio FH5 or better. The lower the quality level of the headphones, the harder it is to determine the difference in the sound of different devices.
At no point did I say they sounded the same...did I? I said the delta between the sound quality of those 2 devices is substantially smaller than the gap in features and functionality
Ah, so that's the reason they're numbered like that? I was kind of curious, but figured it was too OT.
To add to this, for me so far, the playback of the downloaded files initially worked well for a while and then became erratic, sometimes they would play, often not. I then tried the potential workaround mentioned by Fiio (post #6662), this so far seems to work. So for me within the Amazon Music App I initially select and play a hi res flac file already on the sd card (An old Onkyo purchased Led Zeppelin Custard Pie @ 96K). I then navigate to the already downloaded HD and Ultra HD files and they playback fine (again so far!). Can't check if streaming works or not as I live in rural Scotland where fibre broadband hasn't been invented yet.
Hi @kdphan, @Progsprog, @officerdibble, @FiiO ,@Mybutthurts,
I have created a new thread to discuss the Amazon Music FiiO M11 separately:
Thanks for the feedback. We will report to the engineer for accessing about that.
Anything I should know when buying micro-SD cards for the FiiO M11?
I remember getting burnt when buying a 1TB USB stick because of the capacity only to find out it's slow (that is, it clocks out immediately) to the point of being useless.
Avoid Lexar. Genuine Sandisk should be fine.
MicroSD memory cards, I purchased in the official Samsung store on AliExpress. I did not observe any problems with the cards of this company. Cards purchased at this store have been working without problems for several years. I advise you to purchase!

Fiio posted a note somewhere in this conference about cards to avoid and the electrical situation that is involved, if I can find a link I will.
Here is the Fiio post on memory card issues for M11, I'm not sure of the proper way to cross link in head-fi, hope this works:
