Portable Desktop-Class DAC and Headphone Amplifier, FiiO Q9-From @JamesFiiO

Evolution of ambient lights


At that time when the design of the M17 was exposed at the iF design exhibition, some consumers considered that the ambient lights on the side of the M17 were too cheap. However, after the M17 was released, most users expressed that it was quite amazing. Frankly speaking, as an audiophile over 50 years old, I should have stood on the opposite side. However, our user survey and research on new electronic gadgets showed that the younger generation preferred RGB lights, while rich middle-aged men also like the ambient lights just as that on Mercedes. Therefore, we expect that we can make better ambient lights for the Q9 based on the M17's. The attached picture is the design of the Q9, from where we can see larger and more expansive ambient light areas. Which ambient light design do you prefer, the M17's or the Q9's?

Thank you so much for your opinion on the ID design of the Q9. We will finalize the front and back designs of the Q9 based on opinions of users at home and abroad (From the current result, Chinese users prefer the one with heat dissipation marks just like the M17 while overseas users hold an opposite opinion).
We are still optimizing the RGB light design. Here are two different schemes. The first is an integrated design with all ambient lights in one. These lights take up larger space for an obvious light effect. The second is to add more lights based on the M17. Which one do you prefer?

Since you take DAP module out, could you make the amplifier more powerful than M17. Maybe using higher voltage than 12v. 18650 battery would be nice
And without the need to use cooling stand. I think thicker case wouldn't be a problem

The Soc module and the screen don't take much space so it is hard to put 18650 inside and alos the power of M17 already strong enough so we will like to keep the same as M17.

The very very interesting device could be.
And some details could help to make a decision.
e.g. go now with ifi diablo, or wait for Q9
But if it's not yet started - no chance it could be released in a half year...

I'm very interested in this product too...I think it should be better overall in terms of sound refinement and power output than ifi diablo, with near the same price.... Here is some earlier info posted by Fiio. I Will definetily wait for Q9 release. I Think it will become the new portable dac-amp champion.
