The FiiO M11 Plus review for video games and DAC/LDAC performance is on many people’s minds. Also, the FiiO M11 Plus Ltd review, FiiO M17, and the FiiO M11 Pro are the trending topics. So, can you play games on the M11 Plus upgraded player recently launched like the former FiiO flagship mp3 music players? The 14nm Snapdragon 660 with 4 big and 4 small core architecture and Adreno 512 GPU provides a smooth smartphone experience for all Android apps and games. There is Android 10 OS with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and memory card support for playing games. Let’s review this new DAC music player in details for more detail.
The FiiO M11 Plus Review
This is not a new Digital DAC/LDAC Android mp3 music player, but FiiO upgraded it recently. There are now dual high-performance ES9068AS DAC chips for an exceptional digital audio experience. Also, the FiiO M11 Plus review for Bluetooth shows two-way SBC/AAC/LDAC for both Andriod and iOS. In addition, there are dual high-performance THX AAA-78 amplifiers for Hi-Res Wireless and Hi-Res headphone output. Unlike the FiiO M11 Pro, FiiO M11 Plus Ltd, and FiiO M17, it supports MQA decoding and DAC/USB rendering in 8x Mode. Plus, there is the new 4th generation Digital Audio Purification System for FPGA plus NDK femtosecond crystal oscillator to produce pure studio-quality sound.
Can it run video games?
Many fans of FiiO digital DAC music players ask if they can run Android games? You can download or install apk video game apps on this Android music player. However, the FiiO M11 Plus, M11 Plus Ltd, M17, and M11 Pro are tuned for high-performance digital amplified music. But all of these can play any Android game or movie, just like the smartphone. Also, it is recommended that you only use it for music. The FiiO M11 Plus review for gaming shows the smooth game running and display on the 5.5-inch FHD screen. It is because of the Snapdragon 660 CPU, Adreno GPU, and 4GB RAM.
FiiO M11 Plus Design
Like the FiiO M11 Plus Ltd review showcasing the honeycomb design, this new digital portable music player also has the same shape. However, it is the 6th generation honeycomb hexagonal design with a 5.5-inch HD bezel-less display screen. Also, there is a new generation of intelligent and interactive volume control. It has a touch panel and physical button for volume adjustment.
The power button glows with a blue LED indicator light when turned on. There are intelligent volume controls on the right with the power button and an independent/customizable short-cut key. The FiiO M11 Plus review for design shows all the buttons. On the left side, there is a memory card tray, hold-key, previous track, play/pause, and the next track key. At the bottom, a 4.4mm, 2.5mm, USB Type-C charging/transfer port, and a 3.5mm balanced out/line out jack.
DAC/LDAC and THX Digital Music Features
There are five working modes that the FiiO M11 Plus review will explain. A USB DAC Mode allows the users to connect with a computer or Apple device. So, it works as a USB DAC/Amp. Switch to other modes using the drop-down settings menu with short-cut icons. The Bluetooth receiving mode allows the user to connect with the Bluetooth transmitting phones or devices for Bluetooth DAC/Amp. You can disable third-party apps by activating Pure Music Mode from the drop-down settings menu. If you want a quick connection with Apple devices to receive the audio transmission, there is the AirPlay Mode. The default mode is the Android Mode for using the interface.
The two-way Bluetooth 5.0 transmission supports SBC/AAC/aptX/aptX-HD/LDAC for iPhone and Android phone users. Therefore, you can enjoy wireless/wired true high fidelity sounds on both platforms. There is also support for AirPlay and DLNA streaming. All audio data passes through the dual 4th-gen Japanese FGPA+NDK femtosecond crystal oscillators. Also, the FiiO M11 Plus uses a new anti-interference circuit design, with each module having its unique shield. The feed-forward error correction technology for the two THX AAA-78 amps produces lossless music details. Thus, you hear the sound recording studio-quality audio.
Master Quality Sound Production
For a long time, the FiiO M11 Plus Ltd DAC Android music player has been the favorite of many fans, and it still is. However, the FiiO M11 Plus review shows many latest upgrades for the newly launched M11 Plus. It now supports global MQA 8x decoding with MQA Renderer for USB DAC mode. Thus, it produces master quality sounds like no other for MQA music tracks. The 3rd-gen DSD allows for three gain levels with a mighty 660mW output. Hence, you can use high-impedance or high-sensitive headphones.
In-Vehicle Mode and Massive 6000mAh Battery with 27W Fast Charging
Another upgrade for the new FiiO M11 Plus music player is the large-capacity 6000mAh battery. Therefore, it provides 14 hours of music playback and ultra-long 1000 hours of standby time. There is also support for QC 2.0/3.0/4.0 and USB PD fast charging. However, it takes up to 3 hours to fully charge. The FiiO M11 Plus review also shows there is an In-Vehicle Mode for turning on/off in sync with the car. The mode can automatically turn on when you start the car.
