Bang On!
Not at all
If you have decent speakers/headphones and can afford this. Buy!

I have been listening to this for 8+ hours a day on powered speakers and a powered sub (separate).

I was looking for a DAP cum DAC to upgrade my current player (Activo CT10 from iRiver). While I had no complaints. This is just better.

One immediate noticeable element is deeper solid bass. Not boomy (had to spend some time figuring out the crossover and volume).

On low-res Spotify streams, the vocals are clinical, but not unpleasant. On switching to a HD stream, it's a little better, but only slightly. May have to add a tube component somewhere in the chain. Not sure it'd help though.

Mind you, there is nothing wrong. It just stands out. That's all.

Never thought, I'd say this, but the soundstaging is better (Thriller, Money immediately come stand out). You can also make out finer details (can't believe I am writing this as well). But then I am upgrading from an entry level DAP/DAC.

Stringed instruments. Oh man! you can hear the pluck in detail (I mean I could earlier as well, but this is better).
I mentioned bass earlier, but percussion instruments need a mention. In well produced tracks, the sharp bass note and the decay (Flash) is a pleasure to hear. Even in controlled violence (Another one bites the dust) the preciseness is incredible. Of course, this is a function of the speaker as well. But noticeably better.

The items I mentioned above stood out for me. I would have heard these songs hundreds of times before on all sorts of equipment. This is just better.
That said, I was expecting some songs to come out better, but they didn't. For e.g. Paralyzed by Dream Theater. This could be because of source (Amazon HD stream), but can't say, because Barstool Warrior from the same album sounds better.

Some niggles/issues I haven't figured out yet. The volume knob does not work with the RCA connector (Not sure, if this is an issue or by design). This is fine for me, as I have a remote for the speakers. But obviously, the sub doesn't scale accordingly. This works for my setup as it is in my study and I don't need more than this. If this is an issue for you, you'll need to check around on this.

LED rings are a so so feature, with marginal utility (it identifies source quality /output (bluetooth)). I've turned it off.

Things to try:
1) With high-end headphones. I only have the XM5/XM3, which is kinda pointless.
2) Optical connection to the sub (and then speakers)
3) High-res files
4) Tube component (not sure, if I will ever try this)
5) Linear Power Supply (A Youtube reviewer insists it makes it better. No idea if it's true.)
6) Acoustic damping to see if something improves. (I have a lot of glass in the room including French windows)

What's missing?
1) A remote
2) Some vis software would be nice

Who should consider buying?
1) If you listen to a lot of music at home (WFH situation mostly).
2) If you have no dedicated Hi-res player or have an entry level one (like me).
3) If you already have some equipment that can make the most of it.
4) If you can afford it.

Update (16-12-23): FIIO, with an OTA, introduced a system-wide equalizer. I used this with speakers (Edifier) and headphones (HD 650), And this addition gives a phenomenal level of control over how your music sounds.

Bottom line:
This is a no-brainer. Buy!

Hey Chirag, thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Can't describe in words

I bought a Marshall stanmore 2 this month, is good, but was not satisfied, wanted more! Did some research, came across r7. In fact r7 was always under my radar.
R7 with SP3 is a deadly combo. Perfect in all sense, so happy with my purchase. I don't know how to describe in terms of audio technicalities. But need to listen to to understand what I am saying. No wonder it's having so much positive reviews. Overall build quality and packaging was excellent. Will say apple like.

Thank you for the review! we appreciate it.

So, it's an all-in-one...

I purchased this as I wanted something without batteries. As I'm a "Nominal Audiophile", I don't want to comment on the audio quality.

But I can say this: The build quality and packaging are superb. If the same care was taken with the internal design and construction, then... WOW! (See the FiiO official disassembly video on YouTube)

There are a few irritants though... The unit I have rebooted by itself a couple of times. I'm putting it down to instability of Android. I was unable to get it to connect with AptX to my MDR-1000X... it defaulted to SBC. It did connect with AptX-HD with my other headphones... so ok. The plastic screen is a disappointment. It should have been glass. And where is my damn remote?

Now the price... is it expensive! At around ₹ 50,000/-, it will sell like hot-cakes.

Finally, this is really a unique device with a unique form-factor. I'm waiting for the next iteration of this (which has been announced by FiiO, at a price of around 1,200 USD).

Purchase process was smooth and delivery was fast.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
