No nonsense, all high performance Dual AK4499EQ flagship DACs
The AK4499EQ is AKM’s flagship third generation DAC. With four channels per DAC chip, a current output architecture, and being manufactured on the LSI special process, the AK4499 has impressive performance. The DAC chip is capable of decoding up to 768kHz sampling rate and native DSD512, and has a signal-to-noise ratio up to 140dB and THD+N as low as -124dB.
XMOS XUF208 USB chip
Supports up to 768kHz/32bit, DSD512
When in USB DAC mode, the M15 utilizes professional grade XMOS XUF208 USB chip, supporting up to 768kHz/32 bit and DSD512 input.
Qualcomm CSR8675 Bluetooth chip
Supports two-way LDAC lossless Bluetooth
When the M15 is used as a Bluetooth receiver, Qualcomm’s CSR8675 flagship Bluetooth chip comes into play for complete Bluetooth audio format support as well as enabling lower latency and faster transfer speeds.
Bluetooth transmission formats：SBC, aptX, aptX-HD, LDAC, HWA
Bluetooth reception formats：SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX-LL, aptX-HD, LDAC
Exynos 7872 processor
Most powerful SoC among HiFi DAPs

NDK femtosecond crystal
The two custom Japanese NDK femtosecond crystals in the M15 allow for a phase noise as low as -140dBc/Hz @ 1kHz offset. These crystals work in conjunction with the 3rd gen FPGA clock algorithm, for lower jitter and ultimately a more accurate clock for the DAC.
FiiO 3rd gen FPGA
Present in the M15 is FiiO’s self-developed 3rd generation FPGA with more advanced algorithms, more accurate clocks, and even further reduced jitter.
Parts worthy of a flagship
Ultra-low noise resistors：high precision 0.1% tolerance, low temperature drift, low noise film resistors
Dedicated audio capacitors：4 low-loss polymer tantalum capacitors + 4 Panasonic electrodeless film capacitors + 8 small film capacitors
Ample power reserves：28 220uF low-loss polymer capacitors, 5 100uF high-voltage capacitors
Impressive LPF configuration：Eight 4-way independent Panasonic metallized film capacitors
Cumulation of technology advancements
· 8-layer ultra-thick immersion gold PCB
Greatly improves space utilization, and ensures no interference between digital and analog circuits
· Independent shielding for digital and analog circuits + special absorbant material
For further improved shielding against interference, and pro-grade material specifically to absorb 2.4GHz waves further helps
· Customized thermally conductive silicone, graphene, and copper-nickel-zinc alloy heatsinks
Effectively conducts internally-generated heat to the outer body, which allows the heat to dissipate into the air
Sharply dressed and well-equipped inside and out
The M15 adopts a fully balanced architecture to ensure every last detail can be heard without sacrificing bold dynamics. Inside this balanced architecture are: 2 all-new high-precision, low-noise, low temperature drift TI OPA2211 op-amps for the low-pass filter, 4 OPA1612 for IV conversion, and 1 OPA1622 for amplification of each channel.
Handle it all with active servo power technology
For the first time, FiiO has implemented “active servo power” technology to the final amplification stage, which allows the power output to change depending on the user’s preferred settings. When paired with IEMS, you can set the M15 to be optimized for minimal noise as possible. But if you want to use your hard-to-drive 300 ohm headphones, you can enable Big Driver mode to turn your M15 into a power monster capable of pushing such headphones to their limits.
Monstrous power output comparable to desktop amps
Under a 32-ohm load，single-ended output power is 490mW and balanced output power up to 800mW
Under a 300-ohm load，single-ended output power is 70mW and balanced output power up to 275mW
A quiet listening background as black as the universe
Noise floor as low as 2.1μV
Distortion as low as 0.0004%
S/N Ratio up to 122dB

5th gen classic columnar design
Arched design for a comfortable grip
The M15 represents the 5th generation of the basic classic columnar design that defined FiiO’s previous models, such as the Q1 Mark II/K3/K5 Pro. The left and right sides are made concave to facilitate gripping the device, and the overall arced design gives the M15 totally unified design.
Analog potentiometer volume knob
Pro-audio grade volume adjustment
ADC curve reconstruction as employed in the M15’s volume adjustment solves problem traditionally associated with analog potentiometers, such as volume imbalance between the left and right channels.
The brightness of the pulsar light can be also adjusted with the volume knob, making each turn of the knob both a visual and auditory delight.
