    DESCRIPTION

    All-New Bluetooth Codec


    HiBy has developed its own audio codec, Ultra Audio Transmission (UAT). It supports a sample rate up to 192kHz and a bandwidth of 1.2Mbps. With such a high streaming rate, these can adapt to any and every music genre. HiBy R5 supports two-way Bluetooth, which can be used as a Bluetooth transmitter or as a Bluetooth receiver two-way LDAC.

    Android Operating System


    The HiBy R5 is compatible with just about all Android-based music apps. The latest Android version 8.1 offers an intelligent audio system for a smoother and comfortable HiFi music experience.

     

    Fine Tune Your Music

    Expert Verdict "The HiBy R5 is a wonderfully designed player that provides rich features in a complete and very compact package. You have streaming, advanced DSP settings, DTA and Hi-Res Bluetooth codecs."
    Heafonia
    "The choices of DAP are great these days, especially at this price point. The DX160 offers 1 of three DAPs I highly recommend, especially if a reference sound is your thing."
    Headfonics
    "The DAP is enjoyable on various levels :the fast UI and a straightforward and beautiful design. Strangely, for a newcomer in the audiophile world, this would be my first choice."
    Heafonia
    "The M6 carries all the good traits found onto the previous models – exquisite finish, good battery life, clean and dynamic sound – into a case befitting its ambitions."
