    AK4191EQ + AK4499EX DACs manage the left and right channels and form the high-quality heart of the FiiO K9 AKM. Listen to your favourite playlist and immerse yourself in the music instantly.

    High-quality amplifier - refreshingly powerful
    The ace up the FiiO K9 AKM's sleeve is the THX AAA 788+ amplifier, which gives it an exceptional undistorted output power of 1% up to 780 mW at 300Ω and up to 2000 mW at 32Ω. Whether you're using low impedance or high impedance headphones, the K9 AKM will drive them with flying colours.

    Precisely designed - Perfectly balanced design 
    From the DAC to the volume control to the amplification, every part of the FiiO K9 AKM is truly balanced to reduce crosstalk and achieve authentic sound.

    Partitioned design - for maximum performance of each section
    The circuit board of the K9 AKM has a partitioned layout that completely separates the most important areas of the audio circuit - the power supply, the signals and the analogue signal loop. This guarantees the integrity of the audio signal being processed.

    Six-stage audio circuit - faithful sound reproduction
    The six-stage desktop quality audio circuit has been carefully designed to ensure a pure, refined yet full sound. I/V conversion, LPF filter, digital volume control, buffer amplifier, pre-amplifier, post-amplifier

    Robust internal power supply - Plenty of power
    The linear transformer is paired with 4 massive 4700uF capacitors to deliver clean continuous power.

    Isolated power supply for digital and analogue sections
    For a purer sound The digital and analogue sections of the K9 AKM are powered separately to reduce interference between the two audio circuits and ensure a pure and faithful reproduction of your music.

    Multiple LDOs in multiple stages - Truly stable performance
    Power stabilisation and filtering within the audio circuit plays a major role in ensuring excellent sound quality. Extremely low-noise LDOs are used for voltage regulation in each stage of the audio circuit.

    Dual-mode clock management 
    Thanks to precise and stable dual-mode clock management, the FiiO K9 AKM can reproduce high-resolution audio data with the highest fidelity, as if you were there with the artists. * Supports up to 768kHz/32bit PCM and DSD512
