Most Affordable Balanced Dap Out There

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!!

First ever HiRes DAP

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.
