Combining smartphone-like portability with audiophile-level sound, the M6 Portable high-resolution lossless wireless music player from FiiO is designed to fully embrace hi-end wireless audio reproduction. The M6 utilizes dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2 and supports a wide array of high-res formats, such as 24-bit aptX HD, LDAC, and HWA hi-res Bluetooth audio. As convenient as wireless is, you can still hook up the M6 to your computer and use it as an asynchronous USB DAC for 192 kHz/24-bit audio decoding. Powering all of this audio power is the Samsung Exynos 7270 processor and ESS SABRE 9018Q2C, which is a combo DAC and amp in a single chip. As with the variety of playback options, you have a variety of control options with the M6. Use FiiO Link to control the M6 from your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone, or directly operate the M6 through its 3.2" 2.5D curved glass touchscreen. However you use it, the M6 is engineered to give you all-day entertainment with a 1200mAh LiPo battery that gives you over 13 hours of playback.

After researching the pricing, features, and Amazon ratings for FOURTEEN different DAPs, I settled on the FiiO M6, the subject of this review. The price seemed right, and I liked my X3ii, so I went with FiiO again. Its various cons outweigh its few pros, though, leading me to give it a two star rating.
Size and weight: Small and light. Just right.
Volume control: I like having three ways to control the volume - pressing the volume up or down buttons on the side adjusts the volume one step at a time and brings up a digital on screen control at the same time. The digital control lets you dial up or down a "speedometer style" graphic, plus you can use + and - buttons at the bottom of the screen.
Sound quality: Very good for a portable device in this price range.
Service: FiiO repsonded quickly and politely to my email question, with well-thought-out advice. Unfortunately, it didn't solve my problem.
Screen protector: It seems that some genius (human or robot) at the factory installed the screen protector on the device's BACK, not on the screen. However, the M6 comes with an extra screen protector that I have not yet installed.
Album art: My X3ii never had a problem with album art. As long as the art was embedded in the file or I had an image called "Folder" in the folder where the music file was, the X3ii displayed it while the music was playing. Period. But the M6 has started dropping images, seemingly at random, from a previously flawless SD card music library. It just displays a generic music graphic. I put a lot of effort into meticulously naming and organizing my music folders, metadata, and playlists for consistency and elegance, and it's frustrating to have that messed with.
Play mode: I LOVE having a "stop after current track" feature, and I have come to depend on it so I don't have to scramble for the pause button before a new track starts. The M6, as far as I can tell, doesn't let you do this.
USB audio output: My new SMSL SU-8 DAC was fine with the M6, but my Schiit Magni Multibit refused to recognize the M6's digital output with the same cable and adapter. FiiO support advised me via email to change the USB output mode from DoP to D2P, then reconnect the DAC. No dice. So I was back to where I started: a DAP that would talk to one of my DACs, but not the other. After MUCH trial and error and spending a lot of money on various cables, adapters, and splitters, I was finally able to get the X3ii to send digital audio signal via coax to both DACs without having to plug and unplug things every time I want a different DAC. So now the X3ii is my permanent, trusted home rig DAP, while the M6 is relegated to second string at work.
Folders: The M6 adds obnoxious, superfluous folders like "Android" and "LOST.DIR" to my SD cards, cluttering them up annoyingly. The ideal device just plays the playlists. It should not alter the file system in any way at all. Is that so hard?
FiiO, I'm not impressed. I have, how you say, "the buyer's remorse."
I'm not saying you shouldn't buy this device if you want one. I'm just saying that my experince has not been ideal so far. Your experience and needs may differ vastly from my own.
I'm coming from a opus#2, that being said.
The sound of the m6 works for me, no not as good a sounding Dap but the m6 gives me features that the opus#2 can't.
The m6 can power my sennheiser hd58x with headroom to spare, wow.
Also I get usb output that I can't get on opus.
Another thing I wanted was aptx hd, ldac bluetooth again not on opus#2.
So let's add that up.
1. Hd bluetooth with ldac.
2. Bluetooth streaming for Tadal and Deezer
4.Size is 80%smaller
Wow that's alot.
As far as the sound quality difference between the Opus#2 and the M6, I have what I think is the best solution.
I use the Fiio q5 and takes it to a level better than the Opus#2 for me anyway.
To get the most out of the bluetooth codec on the M6, I use the Earstudio ES100.
The reason for this is, that most bluetooth headphones are nowhere near the sound quality of the DM6'S and the sennheiser hd58x. I just plugin my headphones to the SE100, set M6 bluetooth to Ldac and WOW.
SO FOR ME M6 IS A PERFECT MATCH FOR MY NEEDS AND WANTS.
1. The update process was convoluted and it required an sd card in order to complete.. so there's an extra expense
2. After my update the Tidal app (which is what I bought this unit it for mostly) would not start. Another factory reset solved this issue.
3. Battery Life is only lasting me about 6-7 hours ( I wanted to use this at work and have it last all day but It doesnt)
4. Wifi drops out for no reason and I cant connect to my home network at all.
5. DAC Drivers - I have not been able to download these at all because the link on Fiio web site is broken
6. Ive had the music stop at random ... even in offline mode at work while it was plugged into my work system
Im hoping that I have a defective unit because the fact of the matter is this thing sounds so good and the build quality is so nice, and the interface runs smoothly. This is the reason I have to give at least 3 stars .. because I really want this thing to work
I have worked with technical support and I will try another device to see if this one is defective. This review will be updated
