The Next Level All-In-One Flagship Device That Makes Your Music Listening Experience A Pure Delight

The FiiO R9, a top-tier all-in-one digital media streamer, seamlessly combines flagship-grade transmission, decoding, headphone amplification, and preamp features in a single device, boasting an extensive array of inputs and outputs, ten operating modes, an Android open OS, a 6-inch FHD+ Portrait screen, and a luxurious metal bicolor design for a thoroughly enhanced desktop HiFi experience.

Features Dual ES9038PRO DAC Chip From ESS Sabre

Utilizing the proven ES9038PRO DAC featured in previous models like M17, Q7, K9 Pro SS, and M15S, the R9 leverages dual ES9038PRO DACs, dedicated to the left and right channels. Each DAC chip comprises 8 independent D/A converters, arranged in parallel for fully differential output, delivering precise, clear, and full sound quality with impressive -122dB THD+N and 132dB DNR.

THX Amplification Technology

Featuring an advanced 8-channel THX AAA 788+ headphone amplifier, the R9 employs a four-way fully balanced design, with headphone amps connected in parallel for improved transient performance. The optimized circuit layout and efficient heat dissipation, facilitated by comb-shaped heat sinks, enable continuous and stable high-power output, reaching an impressive 7300mW per channel at 32 ohms, marking a 102% increase compared to the R7.

5-Step Gain Settings

The FiiO R9 achieves remarkable audio performance through its five-stage audio architecture, featuring precision-crafted IV, LPF, gain, pre-amplification, and current expansion stages. Utilizing OPA2211 op-amps manufactured with the silicon-germanium (SiGe) CMOS process, the chip ensures exceptional performance. With a variable gain and variable power supply voltage design, the R9 offers 5 levels of gain, providing precise control over your preferred listening volume. Whether using IEMs or demanding headphones, a superior listening experience is guaranteed.

Carefully Designed PCB

The R9 incorporates separate boards for its internal power supply, digital components, DAC, and headphone amplifier, with additional metal shields isolating the DAC and THX headphone amp sections. This meticulous separation of the four crucial elements in the audio circuit prevents crosstalk, guaranteeing accurate, clean, and dynamic audio signal processing and output.

Numerous Inputs & Outputs for Easy Connectivity and Scalability

The FiiO R9 features connectivity far beyond what you would expect from a device with which you can quickly and easily build a desktop HiFi system with the R7 as the heart of it. The front panel has 6.35mm (SE), 4-pin XLR & 4.4mm Balanced headphone outputs. The rear panel is where the magic lies. It hosts a microSD card slot which supports up to 2TB if you like to play offline files on the go. It has Single-Ended RCA and 3-pin XLR Balanced lineouts. Surprisingly it also has a USB host interface that supports external USB devices like decoders, hard disks, keyboards, and expansion hubs. It also offers Optical & Coaxial IN/OUT and an Ethernet port for wired connection to a network. The USB Type-C port (USB 3.0) on the R9 supports data transfer, DP output mode, USB DAC, and USB HOST-related functions. The R9 has a Bluetooth and WiFi antenna embedded into the rear panel with a power switch allowing you to switch between DC or AC power supply seamlessly.

Bluetooth and Dual-Band WiFi Support

The FiiO R9 supports Bluetooth connectivity through a dedicated Qualcomm chip, featuring standards such as LDAC, aptX HD, AptX, SBC, and AAC. The operation is designed to be user-friendly, with dedicated buttons for the most commonly used parameters.

6-Inch Full-Fit Intuitive Touch Screen & Android Open OS

The R9 is equipped with a spacious 6-inch HD screen, providing an elevated user experience. The vertical (portrait) display, paired with the open Android OS, ensures intuitive navigation and allows users to effortlessly install and use third-party streaming music and other applications. The Android OS is meticulously refined to eliminate concerns about app compatibility issues.

Classic Metallic Bicolor Scheme

The R9 showcases a flagship aesthetic with its distinctive metallic bicolor design reminiscent of luxury cars. Its body incorporates a protective layer of body-colored 4H PET, preventing fingerprints and scratches. The high-density metal body enhances durability, reducing deformation and minimizing sound performance degradation due to vibrations, ensuring the stable delivery of high-quality music.

Great all in one solution with just an OK headphone amp

Love the versatility of the unit - it does absolutely everything and connects with almost anything. Needed a solution which would enable me to listen to music while working but not using my desktop or phone as the source. This fit the bill after hearing rave reviews of the R7 this seemed like a step up (at least from the specs) but the Headphone amp lets this down. The sound is just ok - my Schiit stack (Magnius, Modius, and Lokius) is way way better. The Schiit stack is warmer as well as punchier than this but the stack didnt solve other issues. I havent yet fiddled with all the settings and there are a lot so will revisit this review once I have had a chance to do so. One other thing if ur an apple iPhone user the android OS may be a steep learning curve. It has been for me. Tested this with Sennheiser IE900s and will be testing this very soon with Meze Empyrean IIs. As usual shipping (from Chennai to Gurgaon) was extremely fast ordered the previous evening and delivered next day afternoon so kudos to Headphone Zone.
