    by the way, i completely botched the screen protector application - is there somewhere i can purchase replacements?
  4. dharmasteve
    I botched it many months ago, so got a case, and never applied the protector. Even though the case has no front glass protection and I keep the M6 in pockets, it still is unscratched and it virtually perfect condition. So it's tough.

    This was in response to criticisms of the M9 on its thread, but is relevant to this thread. Just the M6 has no 2.5mm balanced output. Are there many satisfied users of the M6?

    Nothing is simply one problem and in the case of the M9, altlough there are a few small problems, it suits my needs well. I like it a lot. It's clear though that the M11 is way better, but its just too big for me. As long as, in my case, I keep the cache cleared every couple of days in the M9 when using Spotify, it's way fast enough to use and listen to. The music plays at the same speed as a $1000 DAP and sounds great. It sounds pretty amazing with my 2.5mm balanced iems and fine with 3.5mm single ended. It is loud. LDAC works perfectly in most situations and I can use it along with the FiiO BTR3 even connected to my hi-fi. I have an APTX-HD receiver also for playing to my hi-fi. I can play Spotify wirelessly over WiFi, to my HiFi, and get the highest level of sound whether through Spotify or Local files. I have a World Music Radio App. Many more apps are about to be white-listed (slow FiiO). Plus it does its most basic function well....it plays local music files to my IEMs with power to spare. All it's little problems do not stop me loving it, and the sound is exceptional. I don't stop using it.....and it is small. I can't carry a large M11 DAP and a large phone around at the same time. I fully accept the M11 is way better, but I bought the M9, and the M6, and I would still recommend them, and their form factors are great. For me they sound good and function well.

    I am satisfied with the M6. Bar issues with the search function in the music app, it's pretty perfect for the size and weight. A lanyard hole would be cool.

    I am saving $$$ for the M11 to update my X7ii which sounds brittle with my FH7's, just purchased, I like the idea of a "big" player to complement the M6.

    I am planning on buying a M6 as my second, smaller portable dap.

    I will simply play flac albums (no playlists) from the SD card as well as play Tidal albums (no playlist) offline.

    Are there any glitches I should be aware of? In other words, is the current firmware good and stable enough for my use? And is the wifi connection reliable and strong enough to navigate Tidal online and download albums?

    p.s. my previous Fiio experience, with the X7 1st gen.... has taught me to be cautious....

    sorry, can someone give a dumbed down explination for this? especially the running in cmd part, i don't know how to run it on cmd

    The M6 is an awesome device, I use it daily on walks and such. If you are looking to play FLAC albums only, ie you may load it up with perhaps 3 or 400 albums then you should be aware that to search for albums is pretty dire with the Fiio App. If you search on the M6, it returns a list of tracks corresponding to the text input and starts playing. You can find albums like this but you need to know the name of the album specifically. You can't search for, say Genesis, and then see a list of albums corresponding, and select one.

    It's not a huge problem, but it's a niggle in an otherwise pretty excellent execution.

    I tend to use my M6 as a repository for "good tracks", currently at around 4000, and I just whack it in random play for those 4k tracks, so the search inadequacy doesn't bother me too much with my current use case.

    Thanks for the info, Salla45!

    And how is the wifi connection (stable/strong) to download Tidal albums?

    Is the Tidal app working well to play albums offline?

    Any body facing problem using m6 as USB DAC.
    I'm facing stuttering audio problem when using m6 as USB DAC with OnePlus 6t.
    Some one please check this as USB DAC with OnePlus and confirm.

    I used with Qobuz, not Tidal, never had problems with cached play. Cancelled my account with Qobuz due to lack of use however, now I am using local files only.

    Having said that... generally I don't like streaming with any devices as it does just stop working too frequently for my liking, requiring too much intervention.
  14. salla45
    Well said.
  15. greenflash
    I agree. I am taking "for granted" that the new firmware will bring the much better newer FiiO Music Player.
