AK4191EQ + AK4499EX AKM flagship DAC combo

Like the Q15 and K9 AKM, the M23 utilizes the flagship AKM DAC combo consisting of AK4191EQ+AK4499EX chips. THe M23 features a new design that totally separates the digital and analog portions and also features "DWA ROUTING Technology" to further improve signal-to-noise ratio. These technologies allow for a purer audio background and for higher resolution audio - resulting in a relaxed yet natural sound.


Patented Desktop Mode Activated With One-Click

For the first time on Fiio players, the M23 features a switch specifically to toggle desktop mode (D.MODE). When desktop mode is activated, the M23 is completely powered by an external power source. In desktop mode, the built-in battery will neither charge nor discharge, which ensures the M23 can be used as desktop equipment long term without fear of damaging the battery.


Super High Gain Mode with USB PD Power-In

The M23 features two USB Type-C ports, one of which is dedicated to accepting power only (POWER IN). When this dedicated power Type- C port is connected to a PD fast charging adapter, the Super High Gain Mode can be activated for more gain and more output power. In this mode, the M23's output power can reach up to 1000mW+1000mW per channel, making the M23 better suited for pushing high impedance headphones or low sensitivity headphone loads. While in this mode, the other Type-C port does not consume any power, making it suitable to connect the M23 to a phone for use as a USB DAC.


All New THX AAA 78+ Amp Design Delivers Truly Balanced 8-way Parallel Amplification

The THX AAA 78 headphone amplifiers used in the M11 Plus and M11 Pro have been widely praised by audiophiles around the world. After several years of continuing to refine the design, Fiio is now introducing the THX AAA 78+ amplifier architecture in the M23. The THX AAA 78+ amplifier allows for greater power output with high fidelity, resulting in powerful sound reproduced with extreme accuracy.


Global PEQ Global ALL TO DSD

The 10-band PEQ with FIIO's proprietary tuning algorithm can be used in any operating mode. Users can adjust the EQ's frequency points, gain, bandwidth, and Q value- allowing users to fine tune or even correct the headphone's frequency response curve exactly to their taste. Additionally, users can activate the ALL TO DSD function in any operating mode, allowing them to more easily experience the beauty of audio in different formats.
