HiBy R6 III

$699 $719

World, watch out. R6III shows how serious HiBy Music continue to be. Disregard this Android 12 music player's affordability. R6III's potential to impress is unrestricted with a Class A discrete transistor balanced amplifier outputting in 4.4mm.

Class A shows up in R6III's sound, with a sense of vibrancy and vigour delivering notes with charged energy. There's a trademark HiBy accuracy to frequency response too, coloured yet always correct. Neutral, clean, yet never sterile, R6III will delight budding music enthusiasts keeping them entertained – always.

HiBy's latest release packs refinement amidst a black background attained from a low noise floor, capable of exposing all the detail flagship IEMs and headphones are capable of today. 

R6III immediately went onto Headfonia's Recommended Buys list. It's extremely enjoyable to HeadfonicsMOONSTAR Reviews thinks it has everything a music player needs. Its musicality was a distinguishing feature on Twister6.

Dual ES9038Q2M DACs supply ESS Technology's usual precision as R6III's decoding backbone, allowing you to play back Apple Music Hi-Res Lossless, 16X Tidal Masters and Spotify with no shortage of mobile fidelity on Android 12's modern OS. [See Product Desc. For More]

Product Description

R6III brings its ES9038Q2M workhorses, and accompanying selection of seven digital reconstruction filters for sonic tweaking, to a new level of affordability. It entered Audiophile-Heaven's Hall of Fame. The Headphone List reiterated how complete a music player HiBy have introduced for the entry level.

The converted analog, decoded with the backing of a FPGA leashed to R6III's DACs generating I2S, flows as an accurate waveform on to a series of 16 discrete bipolar power transistors working in Class AB or an optimally pure Class A.

Doubling on its counterpart R5II's output device count, and differentiating itself from so many others who use op-amp ICs with inordinate amounts of gain, R6III's open-loop linearity remains excellent before application of feedback.

That's owed to its Class A bias ensuring individual output transistors are working in optimum condition – aided by an operating voltage of five volts.

Distortion and noise are kept low, without resorting to the excessive use of negative feedback. HiBy designed a true-balanced differential amplifier to further improve R6III's linearity, and you can count on common-mode rejection at its best whenever you plug in via 4.4mm.

R6III's current handling is impressive given its number of output transistors in parallel, meaning this HiBy remains unfazed driving even the punishing low impedances of RavenOdin and Legend Evo from Empire Ears, the Vision Ears EXT and the Oriolus Szalayi.

And even this baby HiBy is able to supply its clean small-signal to the likes of outboard amps such as Cayin Audio's C9, via a dedicated 4.4mm line-out port.

By putting such a high-performance circuit in the palms of people's hands and offering them a Snapdragon 665 with full Google Play support, HiBy grant you the ability to bypass Android 12's sample-rate conversion for bit-perfect playback. Music is truly accessible to anyone and everyone. 

Discussing the above, it's so easy to forget we're talking about R6III as HiBy's entry-level offering. See what these forward-thinkers can really do higher up the range here, or view our other music players here.
