  1. 1) The dual chip dac is not for right channel and left channel. It is for what is called balanced output. The 4.4 mm and 2.5 mm outputs are for balanced cables. This is used for IEMs.
    2) The capacity is irrelevant because you want to use this device with a subscription to Tidal or something similar that streams FLAC lossless or high quality audio files.
    3) In my opinion the M11 Pro by Fiio is a better option at around $750 and is much more affordable and still brings you all the features of M15, in both hardware and software and it comes with dual THX chips for amp/dac.

  2. I must admit….he is ONE OF THEE BEST REVIEWERS EVER! 1) His energy and enthusiasm are charming. 2) He's knowledgeable and technically proficient and 3) He explains things in a way that both answers the most pressing questions AND makes you want to learn more. Kudos. 👏🏾

  3. 1300$ for a music player that people would mostly use to listen MP3 quality songs from Spotify….. 😊 Fiio music players are actually really good, but I would recommend to get a basic model without Android, to listen to FLAC tracks.
