Awards & Reviews 4.5 / 5 Stars

"Als je op zoekt ben naar een high-end muziekspeler die echt in elk scenario past, moet je niet verder kijken dan de FiiO M17. Het krachtige THX AAA-versterkergedeelte en het gesofistikeerd DAC-luik betekenen dat dit toestel kan wedijveren met heel veel grotere desktop-oplossingen. Zo moet je ook naar de prijs kijken. Het is een duurder apparaat als je het ziet als een mobiele speler, maar als totaaloplossing voor thuis is het weer een stukje redelijker. De FiiO M17 is vooral een vlaggenschip dat je waanzinnig veel tuning-opties en streamingmogelijkheden biedt." Full Review (Dutch)
