Highly Potent Hi-Res Certified Digital Audio Player

The latest M11 Plus ESS is equipped with two high-performance ES9068AS decoding chips that deliver outstanding performance improvement over its predecessor. FiiO has brought several updates with the M11 Plus ESS variant, including a low-pass filter and dual THX AAA-78 amp chips to match the ESS Sabre DAC chipset.

Features Dual ES9068AS ESS Sabre DAC Chips

FiiO has upgraded the DAC chipset of the M11 Plus ESS digital audio player with two high-performance ES9068AS audio decoding chips. This new chipset is tuned and adjusted for achieving improved performance, even better than the AKM counterpart, with better Signal-to-Noise Ratio and distortion ratings. The careful tuning minimises distortion to 0.0001% for a highly accurate audio representation. M11 Plus ESS can natively decode DSD512 and PCM 768kHz files effortlessly.

THX AAA-78 Headphone Amplifier Modules

FiiO has featured dual THX AAA-78 headphone amplifier modules for the M11 Plus ESS to support the DAC chipset. These amp modules have a feed-forward error correction technology that lets you experience sound with detail with better output power and present a soundstage as the artists intended. To provide ample power, FiiO has incorporated three gain-level settings - low, medium and high, with each gain level offering 120 steps of volume control. FiiO M11 Plus ESS is a perfect companion that can power high-impedance headphones and sensitive IEMs.

Five Operational Modes & 3-Level Gain Settings

FiiO has designed the M11 Plus ESS to suit most users by offering multiple output ports, three gain-level settings and five distinct operational modes. The Device further offers five operational modes like Android mode, Pure Music mode, Bluetooth Reception mode, USB DAC mode and AirPlay mode for users to choose from. M11 Plus ESS also comes with 3rd gen All to DSD technology which offers 30% lower power consumption and lowers unwanted harmonics for accurate sound with DSD512 native decoding.

Experience Blazing-Fast Computing With Android 10 OS Support

FiiO utilises the legendary and high-performing Qualcomm Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with high-speed 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, enabling high-demand multithreaded computations (audio or otherwise) to be performed in record time. The Snapdragon 660 processor features an architecture capable of providing a smartphone-like smooth experience, enabling you to watch videos and play games. To add to this you get Android 10 OS as the operating system, allowing you to download third-party apps and supporting gestures and dark mode.

Digital Audio Purification System

FiiO has equipped the M11 Plus ESS with its Digital Audio Purification System (DAPS), featuring a 4th generation FGPA and NDK femtosecond crystal oscillator. This system enables the audio data to pass through the FPGA with phase-locked loop technology, which works in conjunction with two custom Japanese NDK femtosecond crystal oscillators to provide a high-precision and low-jitter unified clock source for the entire audio architecture. This system essentially achieves a jitter-free clean sound.

Features an Anti-Interference Circuit Design With Enhanced Power Supply

The M11 Plus ESS adopts an upgraded internal layout and a modular circuit design where each module of the circuit has its shielding cover to separate it from other modules. This design offers less electrical interference keeping the digital and analogue portions isolated. This design architecture ensures the lowest electrical noise and delivers clean sound. M11 Plus ESS has also been embedded with an enhanced power supply, where the front low pass filter, signal amp and amp expansion circuits have their independent power supply. This helps achieve better dynamics and offers excellent thermal management on the device.

The M11 Plus ESS displays great technicalities, balance, and a light-hearted signature that sounds expansive and smooth with pops, rock, and instrumentals.
the M11 Plus ESS is one of the best players you can get in this price range. UI is fast, the sound is superb, and it does almost everything well, either as a DAP or as a source.
With excellent sound performance and technicalities, superb build quality, compact size and good battery duration the M11 Plus ESS is one of the best players in the market.
The tone of the M11Plus Sabre is a slightly bright to neutral sound signature with a more spacious sound that is very clean and clear.

Good features but lacks on sound quality

Build and features:
This DAP come up with very good build quality and has most of the features except system wide equalizer. It doesn’t come up with system wide equalizer so you can’t customise its sound signature according to your taste or headphones.

Sound Quality
It lacks in sound quality. Only mids are clear and prominent but lows and highs don’t have synergy. They are just life less .

Recommendation
I had been recommended this player by HeadphoneZone Guru and I wasted significant amount on them. I don’t recommend this DAP over other DAPs.

FiiO M11 Plus ESS is a fantastic all round music player

I will rate the Fiio on four parameters..

1. Design- The FiiO M11 Plus Ess looks absolutely fantastic, glass back with beautiful diamond like sheen and the front screen is also full flat sleek glass. The resolution is perfect and very clear album art. Also the interface is very quick and responsive. The weight is slightly on the higher side than a normal phone but this is a positive thing reflecting the high grade equipment inside and best build quality. The only negative is the leather cover which does not look or feel premium but we need to use this to protect the premium device. Overall 5 out of 5
2. Music quality - I primarily used the Pure Audio mode and the FiiO built in Fiio music App and its fantastic. The sound is sweet, refined, crystal clear and the system reveals and extracts the minutest details from the track. I only use Hi Resolution Flac for my music so that also ensured good sound. However some 320kbps Mp3s I threw at it sounded equally good, so good job FiiO. The good thing about the app is that it displays the sound quality of the source you are playing in Hz, bits and Kbps. Secondly, you can look up and update the album art from the menu options which is a fantastic feature, albeit a bit clunky. Thirdly, I threw every audio format including MQA, WAV and flac and it played these effortlessly. A double click also reveals a Vu meter kind of view which I really like on the FiiO. Overall 5 out of 5

3. The Android experience-Again fantastic, I used my YouTube music subscription and it worked flawlessly on Android mode and the music quality was excellent with none of the Android processing elements if any. I was also able to install maps and other apps which work fine, so overall good Android experience. The settings interface is a stripped down version but for what it's meant to do, it's excellent with all the relevant music settings enabled. Overall excellent Android music and apps experience. Bluetooth connectivity was seamless and Aptx HD really helps, so does LDAC. Excellent sound again. Top marks to FiiO
4. Finally , the other factors-Fast charging was excellent and obviously quick, battery life is very good, there is absolutely no heating of the device, the touch based volume switch is really cool where you just slide your finger over it, headphone connectivity options are multiple, and the looks are sleek and futuristic with just enough branding and certification logos to give it a sophisticated look.

Good Job FiiO and I am very happy with my purchase and my Headphone Zone Experience.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Very clean & powerful sounding DAP

FiiO M11 plus is neutral with slight treble boost. Very responsive and snappy UI compared to DX170 because of SD660 processor & 4GB RAM. All streaming apps work well even though it's not the latest android version. Hopefully FiiO will update the android version in the upcoming days. Overall, a very good DAP if you are into the FiiO house sound.

Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to know that you're enjoying the FiiO M11 Plus ESS.
