So I wanted to connect my Fiio M11 to my other DAC but there is no signal when I use the SPDIF out. I use the 3.5 jack to coaxial cable I've got with my Fiio.

Is anyone having the same problem?

Hi,

Have you selected the output mode to spdif first? You are using the small coaxial adapter comes with the M11?

Yes, I am using the small adapter and I've selected SPDIF mode. My DAC doesn't detect any signal coming from my M11

Hi,

So whether you dac work when connecting to other device via coaxial? Or can the M11 work fine when connecting to other DAC?

Hello,

I'm Having the Same Issue.

I'm Using FiiO L21 3.5MM to RCA Coaxial Digital Cable & The 3.5MM to Female Coaxial Adapter Provided with the M11 in the Box. Both Don't Work.

Yes, I've Selected SPDIF Mode Setting.

Regards.

I've seen people complaining about this on a different forum so I guess that's an issue with M11... The question is: can this be fixed with software update or is it hardware issue making the feature basically unusable?
I suppose that since M11 is a DAC itself people might not use this function very often, but for me it is important.

Ok, I know what the problem was - I was using experimental hi-res output in PowerAMP music app which was not working with coaxial output in  M11. After switching to a regular output, my external DAC started detecting signal from M11. However, the feature works best with Fiio music app. Problem solved for me ;)

Hey,

Can You Please Share What Kind of SPDIF Cable Are You Using?

If You Can Share an Image of It, Please Do.

Thanks.

Yes, it seems that the problem was poweramp app. Everything works fine now with Fiio Music app.

As for the coaxial cable, I'm using the short 3.5 jack to RCA adapter cable included in the box with M11 plugged to a syncwire coaxial cable I've got from amazon. I suppose that any coaxial cable would work.

I've just bought the M11 Pro and I realized that I'm having the same issues when using Fiio Music app but just with Flac files.

I connect the 3.5mm to rca adapter included and a coaxial digital cable bought in amazon, I can hear mp3 but no flac, or iso

Anyone experiencing the same? Any ideas?

This is my first post but I felt I owed you guys because it led me in the correct direction.  I own an M11 and also wanted to use the spdif out.  No dice.  After seeing on here that someone turned off power amp because it was sending high resolution files through and the spdif wasn’t working, but started working after power amp was removed.  That got me thinking and through trial and error I’ve discovered the following:  The spdif out won’t accommodate ANY sample rate of above 44khz from any app.  I’ve tested DSD out at 2.8 with Amazon HD and the Fiio music out.  Spdif doesn’t work.  192khz using Fiios app or Amazon Hd, it doesn’t work.  Use 44khz ripped cd file in Fiio music app, works immediately.  
2nd flaw that’s not important to this discussion but when I play a lower res file in Fiio app like 44khz, the m11 always downgrades my Amazon he files to 44khz...weird but it happens every time.  To fix I reboot and Amazon is back to 192 or 2.8.  Hopefully this will be fixed in an update.

So to finish up, yes I’ve selected spdif out.  Yes I’ve tested d2p and dop.  The ONLY thing that made spdif work was 44 or lower sample rate.

I’ve gone back to my balanced 4.4 cable, tested also 2.2 and 3.5.  All work fine with 2.8 all to dsd and 192 native from Amazon.  It’s only the spdif that demands 44 or below.  Hope this helps.  Thanks to OP whose original post helped me trouble shoot.

I've just tested this on my Fiio M11 and in my case everything works fine - it lets me play files above 44kHz (tested 96kHz and 2.82MHz files) using spdif output and my external DAC detects the signal. I've used Fiio Music app to test it.
Can you play files above 44kHz with your DAC from your PC?
