Come on people - where are the reviews of this thing? lol
How come FiiO devices have less power at 16ohms and more power at 32ohms and 300ohms than other DAPs?
I have asked this question in M5 thread and someone said current limiting.
Can anyone explain why?
I'm not an engineer, but I imagine they're referring to the fact that putting out high power at lower impedances takes way more current, versus more voltage for higher impedance.
For example, the Fostex T50RP and the HD600, specs-wise, require similar milliwatts (63.4 vs. 66.6) to hit 110db, but the T50RP requires more than twice as much current to do so. (Based on plugging numbers into headphone calculators; like I said I don't understand the engineering or math here.)
This isn't unique to Fiio devices. All amps (I think) have peak power output at some particular impedance level and power falls off on either side of that. This is why it can be super confusing to compare the power output of different portable devices, since they often only give power output at one impedance or without specifying it at all, which is pretty useless.
One maker that provides very detailed power/impedance info is Garage1217, see
here: http://www.garage1217.com/G1217PRODUCTS/Guide/Comparison Guide.pdf
Their amps have options to change output impedance, and they show how these settings affect power output for different loads. They also have some amps that are particularly designed for high or low impedance headphones, and they address that in their documentation. I wish all manufacturers provided this kind of information, would make it much easier to figure out what amps will work well with planar headphones.
A quick google search.
I would say yes, because offline is a feature of the app and not the device. You just need adequate storage.
^ A quick read would tell you that's hardly a review, more a reiteration of the spec sheets wouldn't you say?
No, bandcamp APP is not supported.
The price in USA is about 299 USD.
Yes, the lineout would bypass the M9's internal amping section. And you could use line out when using as USB DAC.
7. FiiO M9 Hi-Res Audio Player丨The Ultimate in Versatility
The M9 supports USB audio out (send digital audio bits through USB), with even support for DoP/D2P. Also, the M9 is one of the few players that can receive Bluetooth audio and output it through coaxial(SPDIF) out.
Only whitelisted apps means the apps you listed out ? Is it possible to install third party players like Neutron, UAPP and Onkyo HF Player using apk files?
I received my M9 today. How do we install the Spotify app?
@JamesFiiO Bandcamp would have been a great addition. Any chance it could be whitelisted in a future FW update?
TIDAL HiFi is supported.
I just set it to store a bunch of playlists offline on my micro SD card, so yes it does.
Masters quality is available on non desktop platforms?
quote from TIDAL's FAQ:
All you need is a TIDAL HiFi membership to access thousands of master-quality albums only through the TIDAL desktop application.
