Surendranath3.0 out of 5 stars This could have been better…Reviewed in India on 16 April 2019Verified PurchaseFirstly, if you are a Mac person and an iTune person, then think four times before buying this. This does not support Mac. I had to copy the music on the SS card and load it.

If you want to delete a file or a song….well, I tried a couple of times. But the files still exist.

It says it can support upto 256 GB on external SS card. But try loading it with music, it hangs! I just have 99 GB music and this is not ok with this machine.

Connecting this machine through bluetooth is really a pain. After trying a number of times I could connect it to my car audio, my Mac, and my headphone. Mind it, the connection can snap at any time.

The equaliser does not work. Try any mode, it sounds same.

Battery does not last for three hours. Forget the much claimed 25 hours of stand by.

But still, music sounds pleasant. Does not hurt your ears, use any headphone/ ear phone.Read more18 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abusevenkataramanan BV5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Hifi flac ldac looseless playerReviewed in India on 25 December 2019Verified Purchasehei, sorry for the late review, but i waited to give review after long usage.
1. build is superb with back cover.
2. you all know about it’s ergonomics hence nothing about that.
3. My prime review is about “is it worth”?
than mobile, mp3 player? why should we
use this?. this is a hifi bluetooth looseless
flac player where we can hear high res
songs which is available only in very
high end mobiles.
4. yes, definitely it is worthy. reasons
a. no radiation- no sim hence no
b. dedicated music player where you can
store about to 2 TB. Handy.
c. wifi enabled so that streaming is
possible (no fm).
d. Signal to noise ratio >118db not just
a value. it is true. While hearing a song
in mobile (with or w/o equaliser)
we can hear the noise but that can be
felt after hearing the same in fiio m6.
No noise and the purity of music is
enjoyed. I write what i felt the

e. The sound output is of high fidelity
with that of mobile.
f. My personal advice is that download
white listed audio app instead of
using fiio music app since it doesnot
met my expectations.
g. Download poweramp (buy) from
official website and use with
equaliser. M6 rocks.
h. Also use a good quality earphones,
headphones, buds etc. Then only
you will know the value of this.

i. Am using kzs10, and skullcandy
hesh 2(old is gold).
j. dont go for good bluetooth
earphones or headphones like
bose sony etc. which is pricy that
may get faulty soon.
k. instead i bought Fiio btr3 b.t receiver
and connected my headphones.
Advantage M6 +btr 3 combo is that
both are aptx hd, ldac enabled,
which is the latest technology in
bluetooth looseless transmission.
L we can use as many ordinary
head phones in btr3and convert
it to latest
bluetooth technology at a lowprice.

M. you can use btr3 for various
purposes ( i will give full review in
btr3 page).
N. Battery- it lasts more than 10 hrs
for me without wifi.
O. i hear only the recorded songs.
P. touch screen, jpg wallpaper can
be kept.
Dear friends exclusive dedicated
attention or use should be given
for an exclusive dedicated amp,
player, electronics, human being

etc. they meant for that.
Q. use in such a way for what is
meant for.
This is the reason for my late
review. I analysed, experimented
and uses it. Good new, innovative
products should be understand
in the correct way.
Finally, this is absolutely superb
excellent companion with correct
ear or headphones, equaliser.
on correct usage i confirm that
we will never go to mobilw foe
Thanks for your patience for reading
my long review.

Battery life is not very long, drains fast if wifi is on.
Build quality should be improved to prevent damages by accidental drops.
Bluetooth works but it has slight audio lag and hence, watching YouTube videos from the smartphone is not very entertaining.
The player provides option to upload songs over wifi network through web interface which works fine when done via laptop, but with android phone I faced issues in uploading.10 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseAmazon Customer1.0 out of 5 stars Apps keep hanging,battery drains rapidly, damaged memory card slotReviewed in India on 31 October 2019Verified Purchase**** Don’t buy it ****

The product is damaged. It is extremely slow. And my memory card got stuck inside it so bad that it is not even ejecting it no matter how many times I have to tried it.
Now both – the device and memory card are stuck, I can’t return it to Amazon and I can’t send it to Fiio too in order to replace it, because my personal data is inside the memory card too. No one is willing to guarantee that my data will be secured and protected if I send it to them.

Hence please do not buy it.
It’s extremely slow when it comes to use it’s inbuilt apps and often hangs. And battery life is also very disappointing. After using it for couple of hours and standing by for almost 5hours overnight, it drained 60% of it’s battery.
Plus the memory card slot does not give easy way to take out your memory card. So be prepared with a set of tweazers to take it out .
I used it with MAC and their driver app for MAC does not even detect the device once connected. Thus I had to use it with Windows or Linux to transfer data.
Overall I would not recommend it to anyone because of the above drawbacks unless the company fixes these issues.Read

Gary Dimmock5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little DAP and worth every pennyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 January 2019Verified PurchaseHad the M6 a couple of days coming from a similar sized touchscreen DAP. My requirements were…. Perfect gapless playback, touchscreen, good UI, simple to use and of course decent sound. A bonus would also be the ability to play from some streaming services and access my NAS over DLNA. Well what can I say, this little box of tricks does all off the above and does it very well indeed. Firstly the player is a decent size, not to big and not to small – ideal for pockets. The build quality is very good indeed and seems very solid.

I loaded up my trusty 128gb SD card – no scanning issues at all and everything seems perfect. The UI is simple and intuitive with the inclusion of some swiping gestures – ideal for touchscreen use. No issues with UI navigation, which is slick and seems well laid out.

I have added the ES file explorer app, as well as the Spotify app, very simple to do and a painless process. With ES file explorer I can access my NAS and play files on the M6 (the DLNA option in fiio music didn’t locate it). Gapless is perfect as well.

This tiny box of tricks has a number of other features, but these were important to me and all work great. The sound the M6 produces is very good, I would say fairly neutral across the range which (for me) is great for iem pairing

All in all a fantastic little DAP and I would recommendRead more21 people found this helpfulReport abuse

MdFuX2.0 out of 5 stars Do not buyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 February 2019Verified PurchaseI bought the M6 to listen to Tidal mostly. Out of the box, on software 1.0.0 Tidal was lacking master quality. I’ve done the official update to 1.0.1. and then the fun began. Every time I’ve tried to open Tidal it was crashing. Looking for a solution I found out that I need to find on the web and download a newer version of tidal to get it working. After installing, it works but there is a Bluetooth issue. After each song, the next one is starting but without any audio output, so I need to press pause/play to get the sound back. This exists only through Bluetooth, it doesn’t matter if I connect to headphones or to a receiver ( tried 2 different ones), wired headphones and speakers are fine. Bluetooth connection is strong and stable (using OnePlus Bullets) I can go away for like 7-8 meters away from the player and It’s still playing without any issues.

The fact that I need to go, and search for outside software just after an update to fix fiio’s mess is outrageous. I tried to get some help on Reddit and fiio forum but only found out that a lot of people are experiencing similar issues but no one got a solution. Some people have issues with the end of the song not playing, for others, the next song is not starting at all, but it’s always Bluetooth related.

Next thing is Tidal responsiveness. I’ve got a SanDisk 128 BG sd card filled up in around 25% with tidal offline music and the speed of search, navigating through my playlist, basically entire Tidal interface is slow. Very slow. Making it a terrible user experience. To compare I’ve installed Spotify, formatted my card, filled up with Spotify music in 25% and its working brilliant. So it’s definitely a software issue.

So, as it is right now I can recommend the player almost for everyone as it’s high-quality build, sounds great, has a lot of power and a lot of useful features. Rest of the player’s software works very nice ( tried Deezer, Spotify, SoundCloud, es file explorer, fiio’s build in music player). I even tried to connect it to my PC and use it as a DAC/AMP. Perfect to listen to music but not for watching anything as the delay is around 1s and the sync between what you can see and hear is off.

HOWEVER, if you are a Tidal user STAY AWAY, DO NOT BUY THIS, until fiio will fix their mess, as you will be disappointed as I am.Read more10 people found this helpfulReport abuse

Paul4.0 out of 5 stars A Bargain.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 February 2019Verified PurchaseLoaded a 256gb card with 100gb of various flac files and 120gb of mp3s very easily loaded them up to play, scan took a few minutes and I was away. I have used it with (and without) a chord mojo – usb c to mini usb – to AKG Q701, & K551, Bose QC25, B&W PX & P5 plus Shure 215 iem, all gave superb reproduction comparable to all other sources used previously (IMac, MBA, PC, iDevices & xduuo dap) Then Bluetooth to B&W Bose, very little sound quality loss compared to wired direct, the mojo adds a good bit and is my personal fave to the K551s. No drop outs at all with bt. Connection to WiFi – easy, in fact it is easy to live with I love it.
As has been said it is small and light but feels quality comes with a clear protective case that feels almost sticky so no danger of dropping…famous last words. Software updated once with no issues, it is worth getting the fiio app as this pulls everything together.
I’m not going to review the bass/mids/trebles because you can google that and I think you need to listen and decide yourself, for what it is worth if anything happens to my M6 I would buy another immediately.9 people found this helpfulReport abuse

Bookaddict19613.0 out of 5 stars Gutes Konzept, aber …Reviewed in Germany on 12 August 2019Verified PurchaseTja wo fang ich an?
Mit der Ausgangslage?:
iPhone SE (und ein paar andere), Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro – 16 Ohm, Alac gerippte CD-Sammlung auf NAS, Spotify mit Unmengen Playlists, Quobuz und Tidal Als Testaccount in höchster Qualität. Parallel Test mit einem FIO KHV
Oder der Motivation?:
Mehr Klang wäre nett, und alles schön transportabel in einem Gerät zusammengefaßt.
Da käme dieser Player-Zwerg mit Android gerade recht.

Optik, Haptik usw.
Einfach elegant verpackt. Ist recht handlich und in einer typischen transparenten Siliconhülle. Die von anderen monierte Schutzfolie auf der Rückseite ist wohl eher dzt. Designelement, weil nicht vollflächig, nicht transparent aber mit Firmenlogo.

Laden ging recht flott (teilgeladen), Einrichtung auch.
Dass man die sehr wenigen verfügbaren restlichen Apps (ein paar Streamingdienste aber bei Weitem nicht alle Wichtigen, ein Systempflegetool) zuerst mal irgendwie auf das Gerät kriegen muss, naja (am einfachsten am PC auf eine SD laden).
Zugriff auf alle 3 meiner Streamingdienste und auf die auf SD umkopierte NAS-Musikbibliothek geglückt (weil auf der kleinen Testkarte kein Platz mehr war, konnte Qobuz allerdings nicht wirklich puffern und stotterte und crashte.)

Erster Nutzungseindruck
Ja, klingt ganz gut. Rasend schnell ist der Prozessor wohl nicht. Also mal ein paar Tage verschiedenes Material auf verschiedenen Quellen vergleichen.

Längerer Klangtest
Klingt grundsätzlich heller, bei gutem Material marginal ‚besser‘, spielfreudiger,
irgendwie gefühlt etwas mehr obere Mitten und weniger Bass (auch wenn er im Einzelnen dann doch genauso da ist),
vielleicht gibt es auch einen Hauch mehr Auflösung. Das alles bei gleicher Bühne und in Summe eher anstrengender zu hören.
Bei einigem Material insbesondere von Spotify klang’s allerdings sogar eher schlechter.
An manchen guten Tagen/ Stücken war auch/vor allem der Unterschied zwischen den Diensten hörbar, oft eher doch nicht. Erschwert wird der Vergleich auch durch die tw. unterschiedliche Grundlautstärke der Dienste.

Rein leistungsmässig braucht mein DT770 die höhere Power des Fiio eh nicht, hier reicht etwa 50% des Möglichen um auf die gleiche Lautstärke zu kommen wie am iPhone die meist sehr ausreichend laute 75% und EU-gelb/rot Einstellung. D.h. alles was man an Klangverbesserung hört (oder öfter auch nicht) geht auf das Konto des DAC und dass er echte HR Formate auf den Kopfhörer bringt (CD/FLAC/ALAC geht auch noch am iPhone problemlos über Kopfhörer höhere Qualität nur per Lightning; das bringt also nur was, wenn man selber Material hat oder die überraschend spärlich gesäten Stücke beim 25€ Qobuz Angebot hören möchte.)

Der nur für den SD-Playerbetrieb vorhandene Equalizer ist praktisch unbrauchbar. Nicht nur frisst er Unmengen an Leistung (80 statt 55), kostet Soundqualität auch bei Nullkorrektur aber vor allem die angegeben dB sind ein Witz. Selbst bei Vollausschlag ist kaum Auswirkung zu bemerken. Als klaren Nachweis, dass er überhaupt was tut, musste ich praktisch eine Hälfte auf Max und die andere auf Min weg regeln. Da gibt es erheblich bessere Player-Lösungen in den vollwertigen App-Stores (Neutron-Player, Jet-Audio mit Bongiovio-Kopfhörerkorrektur-DSP,…)

Die Prozessorleistung ist unterirdisch. Entsprechend reagiert das Telefon auf viele Eingaben sehr verzögert oder auch mal gar nicht. Erschwerend kommt der Ersatz der Buttons durch zwei Wischbewegungen (links, rechts) von ganz unten dazu.
Das Starten von Spotify mit Listenauswahl und Titelwahl war gleich mal eine Minute. Rechtsscrollen beim Einzeltitel zum Titelwechsel wird gerne ganz ignoriert (nur das Cover wird angezeigt). Ein Titelwechsel aus der Liste kann mal 2 Sekunden dauern und die Anzeige dann nochmal. Gerne wird auch nach etwa dieser Zeit eine kurze Störung/Unterbrechung ins Stück eingebaut. Ein paar mal wurde ein Blätterversuch in der Liste mit einem Totallock quittiert und einem ‚Spotify reagiert nicht mehr Fenster‘. Abstürze gabs auch mit Qobuz. Nach einem Reboot ging’s dann wieder reaktiver.

Akkuleistung ist soweit ok, liegt irgendwo bei rund 10% pro Spielstunde. Leider frisst der Standby (insb. mit WLAN) auch ziemlich Strom (scheint so um die 50% in 24 Stunden zu sein).

Wenn man dem Ding einen vernünftigen Prozessor und Memory gegönnt hätte, würd er wohl Sinn und Spaß machen. Insbesondere wenn man eine leistungshungrigeren Kopfhörer betreiben und Streaming haben möchte, bleibt einem eh nur die Wahl zwischen den paar Android-Playern oder einem dedizierten KHV (ev. mit externem DAC), was aber auch nicht der Gipfel an mobilem Komfort ist.
Wer noch viel jüngere Ohren hat, einen hervorragenden Kopfhörer hat und deutliche Unterschiede hört (oder meint zu hören) und eh immer nur 3 Listen in Dauerschleife hört, kann wohl auch zuschlagen.
Mir persönlich haben die Abstürze und Softwareprobleme den Spaß verhagelt, sonst wär er als all-in-one-Zwerg durchaus eine nützliche Ergänzung.Read more24 people found this helpfulReport abuseTranslate review to English

Clayton2.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but flawed..Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 September 2019Verified PurchaseMy old 1st generation Fiio X1 died from water damage, and it had been such a great device I decided stick with Fiio. I liked the look of the M9, but didn’t want to spend that much. I was tempted by the M7, but really fancied a device with WiFi and the ability to use music streaming apps.
I was about to give up on Fiio, but then they suddenly launched the M6. It seemed to offer everything I wanted, and a nice price, so it was a no brainier.

First impressions were good, build quality is excellent, made from aluminium with glass on the back as well as the front screen. Somewhat annoyingly, a screen protector for the back is fitted in the factory, but you have to put the one for the screen on yourself. I made a hash of it, and it looks unsightly. They do supply is a nice silicone case, which is nice touch.

Setting the device up was straight forward, I used the same memory card I used in my X1 , and the media library updated no problem. I’ve since used Media Monkey to add more music, and have had no problems. Using the screen and buttons is actually quite good considering how small this player is. It’s a generally nice device to use.

Sound quality is obviously a big factor with a dedicated music player, and the M6 performs very well here. The sound is clean, well defined, open and airy. For reference, it sounds better than my old X1, and better than my iPhone 6 (which is no slouch for sound quality). That’s using the headphone output, using line out and plugged into my HiFi, the sound quality is even better, in fact it’s outstanding.
One great feature is the device’s ability to act as a stand-alone DAC, and this can be via USB, or Bluetooth. I can connect my Samsung tablet to the M6 using LDAC Bluetooth, and use the tablet as a source. The M6 acts as a Bluetooth receiver, and DAC, outputting to my home system using line out. Extremely convenient, yet also very good sound quality.

Battery life: It’s supposed to be about 13 hours, and I would say it’s perfectly capable of this, as long as you leave the device continuously playing music, and nothing else. (I’ve observed 7% drain per hour). However, that’s not how most people use music players, and once you start using the screen, navigating around the device, using different apps, streaming, downloading, using line out, etc, battery life takes a big hit. In real world use, I would expect less than half the claimed battery life. On the plus side, the battery charges up quite quickly.

Issues: Unfortunately, despite this device ticking a lot of boxes, it does have some issues which can’t be overlooked. I think they are probably related to fact this device uses a processing chip from a Smartwatch, which isn’t at all powerful. I’ve used Tidal, Spotify, and Amazon Prime music apps on my M6, and they all have issues:

Tidal suffers from stuttering of music, mainly at the start of a track, but it can happen at any time if you dare to do other stuff at the same time, like browse for music. It’s worse with WiFi on, and gets worse when actually streaming music. Using Bluetooth at the same time is even worse, and it’s not even possible to use LDAC “Sound Quality Priority” whilst streaming, all you get is stuttering, no music.
To reduce stuttering to a minimum, I have to switch WiFi off, reboot the device and only use Tidal in offline mode. Even then it will still give a little hiccup now and again.

I unsubscribed from Tidal and tried Spotify. No stuttering! However, I had other issues: Whenever I turned the M6 on and opened Spotify, it would try and transfer all my downloaded music from my memory card to the device’s internal memory. I checked my Spotify account (using another device), and it seemed my M6 appeared in my “registered devices” list about 5 times, and it had hit the limit. I cleared this list, and it seemed to cure the problem.
However, I had been using Spotify offline mode in the M6, but when I went to open the app again, it asked me to log in. However, it wouldn’t let me do this, because I was offline. I couldn’t go online because I wasn’t logged in. Now, this might not have been the M6’s fault, but I never had this problem on any other device.

I then tried Amazon Prime Music (I already had a subscription), and whilst it does work, it’s incredibly slow. Upon opening, it takes a couple of minutes before being able to actually play music. The music doesn’t stutter like it does in Tidal, but you have to be very, very patient to appreciate it.

Even Fiio Music isn’t perfect, and I’ll often have to endure a tiny hiccup at the start of a track now and again. There’s a few other niggles too:

Whilst the Bluetooth DAC function works great for music, it’s no good for video, thanks to a lag of about half a second between video and audio.

The graphic equaliser function is poorly implemented. On my X1, turning on the EQ meant the maximum volume available was reduced, in order to avoid a distorted output at too high a volume. On the M6, turning on the EQ results in the current volume being reduced. This make easy A-B comparisons difficult when trying to compare EQ’d sound to un EQ’d sound. I also get the impression that the sound quality also drops a bit when turning on the EQ. Perhaps that’s just my imagination, though?

In deciding how many stars to give this product, I would have loved to have given 4 or maybe even 5 stars, because I do like Fiio products, and this M6 is very nice in many ways. I feel a bit mean only giving two stars, especially when it performs so well when used as a Bluetooth DAC connected to my home system. However, it’s primary use is as a portable music player, and in that role it fails to provide solid music playback, whatever app I try to use.
It might sound better than my iPhone 6, but because of the niggles, I find the IPhone is getting used more then the Fiio when out and about, which was never the idea when buying the M6.

I hold out hope that Fiio can address these performance issues with updates, but we’ve had two of them so far, and no improvement. Unfortunatley it seems Fiio are more concerned about adding more apps to the Whitelist rather than fixing issues, it seems odd that people buy a dedicated music player, and then badger the manufacturer to make it function more like a smartphone.

If Fiio can improve the M6, then I will consider revising my rating of this product…

UPDATE: April 2020, the device is 15 months old, and now has a load of horizontal lines on the screen. I think I’ll be looking at a different brand when it comes to getting another music player. Sorry Fiio, but this device has not been good enough.

ANOTHER UPDATE: June 2020, I went to use Tidal, and it said I needed to go online, which is normal after not connecting for a while. However, it wouldn’t let me log in, with a message about an undetermined network error. I upgraded the M6 firmware, no difference. I uninstalled the Tidal app and downloaded it again from the Fiio website, still the same.
This appears to be a fairly common issue a tthe moment with this device, and some people recommend using certain versions of the Tidal app. I tried these different versions, still no joy. I can log in fine on all my other devices. I tried a different WiFi connection, and even a factory reset of the device.

So, Spotify never worked properly, and now Tidal has gone the same way. Amazon Prime Music does still work online ok, so I know the Wifi connection is good.

UPDATE: June 2020, I managed to find a version of Tidal that works, so at least the device is useful again.Read more4 people found this helpfulReport abuse
