"At $499, a full $300 less than the starting price of its predecessor, HiBy’s R6 III makes a compelling argument as one of the most full-featured DAPs not only in its price range, but quite a bit north of it as well. "

Hiby R6 gen3 (gunmetal gray)

Bought this to avoid recharging mobile frequently and to circumvent Android SRC issue as this DAP supports system wide bit perfect play. First DAP so don't have any yardstick to make a comparison. Peforms well (not as responsive as a flagship mobile but works fine). Sounds excellent. Have had it for couple of days and used it with S12 and Final e3000 iems. Have also tried with hd600 (3.5mm unbalanced) with high gain. Haven't tried all features yet as there's bit of exploration involved due to user guide being very very basic.

Other DAPs considered - Fiio M11 Plus ESS but opted out due to the weight and size, older Android 10.

Thank you for the review! we appreciate it.
