Let’s hope it’ll be closer to $600. What’s dual AK4497EQ sound like compared to other chipsets?

Honestly it’s pretty similar to the ak4493 in both sound and measurements. It’s more leaning towards a balanced tone vs common ess implementations which lean towards a harsher more clinical sound. It will most likely have the same fiio house sound.

The real special sauce of the m11 pro will be the thx tech

thats why i dislike fiio, they just never stop pushing out new stuff, making older gen buyers feel like idiots, like those who just got the M11 and now there is an M11 pro

I don’t feel that bad, because I’m perfectly happy with mine, and I doubt I would be able to tell the difference between the dacs, and I don’t really care about the thx for portable. I will be upset if they abandon the firmware and software updates for the m11

that will happen sooner/later, when enough variance of m11 is out

I might have been excited for this, but since it has the same chipset of the first M11, it still won’t support google play services.

There’s also a THX amp “module” for the Q5 now. (coming soon, or already there? I don’t know).

It entirely depends on their implementation, but it is akm’s top of the line flagship. Just to make a point of comparison, the other two dual ak4497 daps are the a&k sp1000 and the cayan n8 which sell for $2000 and $3500 respectively.
