Equipped with a 1080p large hi-res display and combined with 5.0” Corning Gorilla glass; 1920x1080 resolution; 443ppi; 16:9; oleophobic-coated, the new R6 is as finely detailed and colour-accurate in looks as the audio is high fidelity.

Wrote a review on Google for MusicTeck because they deserve much love for their exceptional customer service. Courtesy and communication are key for me.
Decided on the R6 2020 after months of research and review videos. Very, very glad I did. With MusicTeck's help was able to update to new firmware and have been using it ever since.
Downloaded some music players off Google also for streaming. I do realize I haven't been using it to its full potential and will slowly get there. Right now using it daily for streaming classical music to various speakers in my home. To say I'm happy with what it does and how my tons of audio files sound is an understatement. Sometimes you run across tech that makes you say "why have I been without this" and for me the R6 is it.
Have used it daily since it arrived and have had no crashes, hiccups or annoyances at all. After the R6 formated the MicroSD,
I loaded music, streamed throughout the house and adjusted it till my ears and heart were in disbelief.
Anything else I've used for playing local files, the player would just stop or the MicroSD card would hang. This one just plays - no midsong stops or crashes. It simply does what's needed.
Haven't used any streaming music services or wired headphones yet, but I will eventually.

I have been using the New Hiby R6 for around 1 week, is a very fast devixe for being a DAP, it does the Bit-perfet for streaming, besides de led light on the side at the top right it shows you the sampling rate.
The only thing I haven't done is pairing with my cell, is a Xiaomi and I don't know why can pairing, the sound is smooth, details are nice, bass is detailed, treble relax, mids are present and natural, mseb is helful to give a personal taste to the sound 👌very thankfull with Musicteck 👐👐👐🙏 delivery was fast.
I have owned the HiBy R3 Pro for a few years now, and while a great little player, it’s small screen and lack of android OS limit it in some ways. After researching the options extensively I settled on the R6 2020 (this model and price point) It is an extraordinary upgrade!
The sound is way louder, larger, and more vivid. The integration with Android and the HiBy music app is impressive, and shows off HiBy’s background designing custom audio versions of Android for other DAP developers.
If you are thinking about a HiBy DAP, I personally have been thrilled with everything about their products. MusicTeck has also been a sterling distributor, and I was shocked at how quickly it arrived!
