M11PRO Stainless-Steel Limited Edition - Android-based Lossless Portable Music Player - Further powered, Wireless
M11 Pro Stainless-Steel Limited Edition is not only an attempt that FiiO pursued characteristic crafts, but also a declaration for audiophiles to show their individuality.
The distinction between M11 Pro and M11 Pro Stainless-Steel Limited Edition is the stainless steel chassis. In order to differentiate M11 Pro stainless steel edition from M11Pro, we adopted 316 Stainless-Steel, combined with both precise machinery and ingenious handicraft. Eventually we managed to create a delicate and noble limited edition serialized for its uniqueness.

Better equipment enables more possibilities - Audiophile-grade dual AK4497EQ DACs
To truly improve on the already excellent sound quality of the M11, the M11 Pro SS employs two carefully implemented AK4497EQ DAC chips based on the AKM VELVET AUDIO architecture. Compared to the AK4493EQ, the AK4497EQ brings better specs and actually noticeable improved sound quality.
Extremely accurate yet natural sounding - Fully balanced THX AAA Amplifier
With the fully balanced THX AAA amplifier, the sound quality just gets even more amazing. The op-amps that are a part of the dual THX AAA-78 balanced amplifier architecture deliver extremely powerful output to easily drive most headphones. And using the same power supply, compared to typical amplifier, the THX AAA amplifier gives a more powerful output while being more efficient, resulting in less noise and distortion for a more precise yet natural sound.
- 0.5% high-precision thin film resistors
- 4-way independent power supply
- 6 layers of gold-plated PCB
- 8-stage amplification
MQA Decoding for truly lossless playback
The M11 Pro SS supports decoding MQA tracks in 8x mode. MQA encoded tracks can deliver ultra-high resolution lossless playback for stunning quality while only taking up tiny amounts of space - meaning you can carry more with you on the go.
*MQA decoding currently only supports by the FiiO Music app. Future firmware upgrades will allow MQA decoding on third-party applications.
Underneath the breathtaking exterior lies serious hardware
FiiO is the only one among companies of digital audio players to utilize the Samsung Exynos 7872 hexa-core processor. With performance comparable to the Snapdragon 625 and Kirin 659, the M11 Pro SS delivers a uniquely and exceptionally fluid experience when being used, allowing it to multi-task extremely well - ensuring you really get your music on demand.
Dual independent crystal oscillators in an all-new upgraded clock system
Inside the M11 Pro SS lies two independent low phase noise crystal oscillators from Japan-based River electet, which when working together with FiiO's own self-developed FPGA greatly reduces any distortion when doing any audio processing and ensures the purity of audio signals in general, for further improvement to the sound.
Pushing the boundaries of wireless Hi-Fi
M11 Pro SS can transmit the SBC/aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/LHDC Bluetooth format as well as receive certain formats. The M11's high-performance Bluetooth radio ensures you can transmit signals further with stronger overall signal strenght, so nothing can get in your way of enjoying quality wireless music.
*At launch, the M11 as a receiver only supports SBC. Receiving LDAC will be enabled in a future firmware update.
A music player, but also a capable Bluetooth amplifier
When set to be in the Bluetooth receiver mode, the M11 transforms into a high-quality Bluetooth amplifier, with significantly better frequency response, as well lower distortion, noise floor, and crosstalk compared to typical Bluetooth solutions. On the top of that, the M11 can also output any received Bluetooth signals through the coaxial out to an external decoder. With the M11, you can enjoy truly divine sound over the wireless convenience of Bluetooth.
Don't go without single-ended or balanced 2.5mm/3.5mm/4.4mm outputs all supported
We wanted to make sure you can listen however you want, so the M11 Pro SS has 2.5mm balanced, 3.5mm single-ended, and 4.4mm balanced outputs. Freely use and switch between the different outputs to listen however you want.
Embrace the era of wireless with 2.4/5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi
With the M11's dual band Wi-Fi radio, you can expect better signal strenght as well as faster and more stable connections - especially when using Wi-Fi on the 5GHz band to avoid interference 2.4GHz Bluetooth.

Global ALL TO DSD functionality for a riveting experience
PCM -> DSD2.8M - With the All to DSD function on the M11 Pro SS all PCM audio signals will be converted to the DSD format.
You will only truly know what is the definition of immersive after hearing this. When using All to DSD mode, any PCM audio signal is converted to DSD, and then decoded to analogue as a DSD digital signal - which results in a different, yet clear sound. And not just the built-in FiiO Music app supports this mode - all apps that can run on the M11 Pro SS do too.
All-new dynamic EQ with 8 presets
The M11 Pro SS contains an all-new 10-band dynamic EQ capable of increasing or decreasing each band by 12dB. With the built-in pop, blues, classical, jazz, rock, dance, metal, and vocal presets as well as a user-defined custom EQ, you can get your music to sound exactly the way you want it.
Hi-Res Audio Wireless certified
