FIIO M11 PLUS
The FiiO M11 Plus Portable High-Resolution Lossless Wireless Music Player has been engineered with advanced components, such as dual DACs and dual THX AAA Frontier amps, to achieve audiophile-level audio playback on the go. Even the basic internal assembly works to improve playback, with individual component shielding and independent component power supplies. Playback can be done through a variety of headphone and earphone types thanks to multiple output types and support for high resolution wireless transmission. With a customized version of Android 10 and a built-in HD display, the M11 Plus can also be used for other mobile entertainment, such as games and video streaming.
Natural, Lifelike & Pure Sound
Powered by dual ESS9068AS DACs and dual THX AAA-78 amps from the THX AAA Frontier series, the M11 Plus LTD supports 768 kHz max PCM, a 131 dB signal-to-noise ratio, and -116 dB distortion. All of this technology comes together for music playback that sounds natural and realistic, as if you were there at a concert or in the recording studio. To help provide purer sound with high precision and a low jitter unified clock source, the M11 Plus is also equipped with Digital Audio Purification System (DAPS), and a 4th gen FPGA + NDK femtosecond crystal oscillator.
Three Headphone Outputs
FiiO's engineers have incorporated balanced 2.5mm and 4.4mm headphone jacks, as well as your standard 3.5mm single-ended output. The 4.4mm headphone jack also acts as a balanced line output, while the 3.5mm jack also acts as a line out and a coaxial output. With this kind of versatility, you can use your favorite headphones without the need of cumbersome adapters.
Long Battery Life + Fast Charging
The M11 Plus has been outfitted with a large 6000mAh battery that can provide up to 11.5 hours of continuous playback, and up to 41 days of deep-sleep standby time when not in use. To help alleviate the wait to get back to the music, FiiO incorporates support for Quick Charge 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, and USB Power Deliver (PD) fast-charging technologies. With them, you can use up to 27W of quick-charging power to fully recharge the M11 Plus in as little as 3 hours.

The M11 PLUS LTD which had the AKM DACs is no longer available due to the AKM DAC chip shortage around the world.
The difference in hardware:
1. The DAC chips have been replaced from dual AK4497 to dual ES9068AS;
2. The volume IC has been removed in M11 Plus. And the volume adjustment method has been replaced by adjusting the built-in volume of the DAC;
3. The side panel has been updated to carbon fibre panel.
Why does the M11 Plus not have an independent volume IC, while the M11 Plus LTD has?
The main purpose of adding an independent volume IC to the M11 Plus LTD is to solve the impact sound problem with AK4497EQ chip during switching tracks. Since the volume IC has some limitations in its performance specifications, after improving the impact sound problem, it will also bring higher noise floor and some other problems for the player.Considering the low impact sound for ES9068AS chip during switching song, it is not necessary to add an independent volume IC to deal with the impact sound problem.Moreover, after removing the volume IC, the parameters such as the Noise floor, SNR could have better level.
This is one of the reasons why the M11 Plus is better than the M11 Plus LTD in some parameters.
