As a user-oriented company, FIIO has been tracking and optimizing the launched products to enhance the user experience. During the sale of the K9 ESS version, FiiO listened carefully to the opinions and suggestions of our sales agents and users worldwide. After many internal discussions, FiiO finally decided to develop the K9 AKM version to fulfill the pursuit of the unique sound of the AKM DAC chip.
The K9 AKM applies AKM’s brand-new flagship DAC combo –AK4191EQ+AK4499EX. Based on the new design technology of totally separated digital and analog sections, the DAC combo even incorporates the newly developed “DWA ROUTING technology” to improve the signal-noise ratio and reduce noise from varieties of amplitude. The result is more realistic, detailed, and natural sound transmission as if you were there with the performing artists.
The K9 AKM not only retains the ESS version’s rich inputs and outputs, including coaxial/optical/Type-B/4.4mm/RCA inputs and 6.35mm/4.4mm/XLR-4/RCA/XLR outputs but also adds a new Type-C input on the right side of the body, which makes it easy for you to connect directly to your cell phone/player and other devices via the Type-C connector.
In addition, the K9 AKM applies the THX AAA 788+ amplifier as in the high-end DAC/Amp K9 Pro, giving it an extraordinary 1% undistorted power output up to 780mW at 300Ω and up to 2000mW at 32Ω, easily handles low-impedance or high-impedance headphones.
The K9 AKM also uses the K9 Pro’s six-stage audio circuit. From the DAC to the volume adjustment to the amplification, every part of the K9 AKM is truly balanced for greatly reduced crosstalk and more authentic sound. Isolated digital and analog section power supply, QCC5124 Bluetooth chip, etc.
