Discover the best a Hi-Res audio player has to offer with the HiBy R3 Pro Saber. The R3 Saber comes embedded with a high-quality dual ES9218P chip for decoding audio. At the heart of the ES9218P is ESS's award-winning SABRE DAC technology, combined with a HyperStream II modulator that can decode audio files up to PCM 32-bit/ 384kHz and DSD256. The result is audiophile quality details while bringing out the edge in your music. The audio signal produced is clean and distortion-free without any artefacts. R3 Pro Saber truly delivers pristine audio.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE DUAL CRYSTAL OSCILLATOR CLOCK WITH FPGA CHIP ONBOARD
The HiBy R3 Pro Saber uses an independent clock system with NDK low-phase noise oscillators and an FPGA chipset. Independent 22.5792MHz and 24.576MHz crystal oscillators supply correct timebase signals to x44.1 and x48 sample rate music data respectively, reducing jitter, increasing the accuracy of digital music reproduction and reducing the effect of phase noise on sound quality. This ensures that the audio signal has low distortion and a very low background noise.

First of all, I have not brought the player from Headphone Zone. This was not available at Headphone Zone when I was looking for an affordable balanced dap. Hence I brought my unit from The Audio Store. However, I am leaving my review here as well in order to help prospective customers make an informed decision.
In order to make full use of this device, I have always used it via its 2.5mm balanced port that offers more than 3 times the power output of the single ended port. The iems I tested out were Blon BL03 with BQEYZ 2.5mm 8 core silver plated balanced cable and Fiio FD3 Pro. The sound signature of this Dap can be described as being very upfront, detailed and engaging . I have also tinkered around with the MSEB feature in this Dap for both my Blon and FD3 Pro. Tidal and Quobuz integration also worked flawlessly.
When it comes to user interface, it relatively fast and gets the job done. However the keyboard is a slight annoyance especially for those used to the fast keyboards of today's smartphones. I also experienced few random crashes while using the device. There is also some issue with adding music to the playlist in Quobuz. However, as I said they were very few to have been a major annoyance. Battery life is also pretty good.
My verdict: In the present DAP market, this is the most affordable Balanced dap out there (unless you buy a unit second hand that is). So, if you can live with the lack of full android support, this is a great dap purchase. Highly recommended.
Update: Changed my iems to 7hz Timeless. Works great with the Hiby R3 Pro Saber through the 2.5mm port in high gain. Sounds like a portable mini Sundara!!
Absolutlely scintillating performance for the price bracket
We are glad you had a comfortable shopping experience with us & it is delightful to read such positive reviews on your product! Cheers & Welcome to the club!
Thank you for the awesome ratings, Tinku Biswas!
very good product in this price category range.
The device is small and portable as it is said by HiBy. I liked the sound stage from the output. But i need to go beyond 55% of the volume to enjoy the punch in the bass. The interface of the player is simple and clean, it could be bit user friendly if one wants to tweak some settings. uploading all the music library that i have with me is bit of challenging. This is my initial opinion, wish this DAP impresses me more as it goes along.
With headphone jack disappearing you need a dongle anyways so just skip ahead and get a dap it will fulfill all your audio needs.
This DAP with its multiple output options
1. 3.5 mm
2. 2.5 mm balanced
Gives you plenty of options to choose from.
