Nice!
It will have newer android version than the M6?
And you can hear a difference between M6 and M6 pro in sounding or is it only more powerful amplifier?

At least the M11 Pro has a THX module, which kinda is an Quality Assurance System in a way, as the name has long history in movie production, (yes I know Razer owns them now, but thats beside the point) what "Pro" is in this?

Ha! I was looking into getting ( yet ) another DAP for gym/mobile use and passed on the M6 and was leaning towards the Cowon Plenue R2 which had more power. This changes everything for my decision---
Any idea of the price in USD? M6 is roughly $ 499---will the Pro be $ 599 or thereabouts?

Is this going to suffer from the bad RF noise associated with the past model?
Great question. Yeah that EFI/RFI noise is plaguing a few of the new DAPs that's for sure.

I was about to the trigger on a Cayin N6ii but I think I might sit on the fence for a while longer and see how this thing reviews

M6 is probably the best bang-for-buck android DAP. I'm sure this will be/seem better, but negligibly for the price premium.

I'd expect similar to Fiio M11Pro (none stainless) I presume the M6Pro is alloy as no mention of Stainless Steel.
