Filling the void: 5 DAPs that do Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify etc.

By | December 28th, 2017|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: The HiBy R6 music player was sent us by Hiby Music and it doesn't have to be returned. The unit I received is the Stainless Steel version, which costs 529$ on Indiegogo. The MSRP will be higher: 649$ when they begin mass production.

THE R6

People demand Android DAPs really. At least that’s what I see in my local audiophile community here. I observe that in Head-Fi and other places too. That’s why seeing more Android DAP offerings is always a great thing, and the HiBy R6 is a new player in that market.… Read the full article
