    Is there a lack of audio players on the market?

    I post this because I have noticed that on Amazon, for example, that it is the largest marketplace in the world, if you search for an mp3 you will only find ones of very dubious quality and strange brands that no one knows with very strange names, I have tried two, and both have presented...

    Hiby R6iii native PEQ and convolution

    I just received an update on the now older Hiby model, r6iii, that added system wide PEQ. Pretty neat, it works with the plugins that's also system wide. Currently running convolution with crossfeed. It looks to be pretty good, resolution of adjustment is pretty fine and will fit most profiles...

    Enough volume but not enough dynamics?

    Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to the audiophile world and I'm trying to understand the relationship between an amp providing enough volume and dynamics for power-hungry headphones. I tend to use a Topping L50 on my desktop setup, which drives my Drop 8XX (300 ohms of impedance and 103dB of...

    Looking for a ‘dumb’ DAP

    I recently got rid of my smart phone to disconnect me from time wasting distractions. My only problem is that my new phone does not work as a music player at all so I’m looking for a portable device that isn’t just a phone without call functions. Something that won’t distract me. I need a lot of...

    Anyone use DAP as a streamer? (HiBy + Dock)

    The HiBy R6 III + Dock sells for $599. HiBy has a "remote" Android app that you can use to connect to this from your phone via a BT connection and then play on the DAP. Seems like a poor mans alternative to the EverSolo DMP-A6 / HiFi Rose crowd. This DAP runs Android 12 which means all of the...

    DAP with Snapdragon Sound - When?

    I know this is heresy for most audiophiles but I cannot bring myself to continue using wired headphones anywhere except at my desk. For mobile situations it has to be true wireless. It sounds like the new Snapdragon Sound codecs is what will finally convince me to sink $700+ for a really nice...

    Considering getting a DAP or better android dongle

    Hey fellow members, I'm considering getting a DAP or better android dongle. I currently have the CX-PRO Audio 31993 384/32. I bought it from amazon for about $20. I listen to CD quality music, not mp3s. So lossless sources, as i'm told by friends is the way to go. I have a pair of KEF M500...

    DAP recommendation

    Hi all. Help with choosing DAP, while such options are: Cayin N3Pro, Hiby R5, Fiio M11, IBasso DX160. Since I mainly listen to heavy music (metal, hardcore, metalcore) so I am interested in good bass. What will be better in terms of sound, interface, convenience?
