Hello dear Fiio team,
I really like the Fiio M7 and wish to know if it will be possible to enable wifi acces into the parameter menu like in the M6 in futur sofware updates? And not using apk to do it.
For other M7 user that are interested please leave a message to show Fiio your interest
Regards

Dear friend,

No, the M7 could not support Wifi via firmware update.

Best regards

The WiFi module IS present in the M7 and with some third party apps (as you mention) can be activated. However, the hardware needed for the WiFi module to pick up signals is missing. The only way to use the WiFi on a M7 would be to sit the M7 next to your router. The missing hardware is why FiiO cannot provide a firmware update to resolve this. You would have needed to purchase a M7K instead, as the M7K has the hardware.

For a short time I was annoyed because the M7K was released shortly after I received my M7 and I couldn't take advantage of having all my media run through one device. I then realized that if I'm using the streaming services I have (Sirius XM, Pandora, DI.FM) I'm not really taking full advantage of the sound quality of the hardware. The entire point, at least to me, is to listen to music wherever I am at the best quality possible. That means lossless files. Anything else I can get through my smartphone.

Thanks a lot for both of your answers! I will sit next to my router for downloading my podcast , for the rest I have my own files. I would gladly boutgh a M7K but it was nowhere to be found...  Aliexpress, Amazon... Specialized store... I you have any lead to find the M7K?

Hah! After Christmas you seriously expected Amazon to have any in stock?

You'll have to be patient as I'm fairly sure it will get restocked. However, if it doesn't, you'll have to look for an alternate device if you want WiFi.

I looked for an M7K since few month and found people on Reddit, who, like me never find track of any stores selling the M7K. Still loving my M7

Amazon themselves only have the M7, not the M7K. If the M7K isn't restocked soon by Amazon the M6 should be a suitable alternative. Only caveat is the battery life is not as good as the M7 as the M6 is a smaller device with a smaller battery. If the battery is an issue, then look for the M9K.
