          I got the answers to my multiple queries quickly and the item was shipped the same day on which I placed the order. Got it before the estimated delivery date. My only gripe is that after a week the price dropped from 229 to 199 for the R3 and for the same price I could have got the bundle pack with the coaxial cable. Still would recommend MusicTeck very strongly because of their unparalleled service.

          The player is a bargain for the price point. The look and feel is quite good. The UI is intuitive and responsive enough but does need some work at places. Sound stage and instrument separation is awesome but highs are a bit recessed, nothing that can't be fixed with some equalization. Sub bass is very well defined and adds a musical quality to the whole listening experience. I hope HiBy keeps updating the OS and add support for a few more streaming services like Amazon Music etc. Overall very happy with the purchase. Would do a detailed test and add some more findings.


          Finicky with Tidal. You guys gotta iron that one out. Selective on certain Bluetooth earphones.
          Sometimes volume is an issue. Blue tooth connectivity spotty

          Excellent Player

          I got hooked on lossless players 2 years ago. It's the equivalent of reverse painted transistor radios from the early 1960s only then, I couldn't afford a 2 transistor radio. I come from the hi-fidelity end of this. I really don't even like computers. It's strictly about the sound, plus I have to admit, I really like my collection of players. It has gotten to the point where every time I am satisfied, something else is presented that captures my interest.

          The latest idea to keep me hooked are 3 daps that sound perfectly awesome in the Bluetooth aptX mode when hooked up to my home stereos via high quality Bluetooth receivers, Bluetooth headphones, or Bluetooth speakers.

          I compared the R3 to a Pioneer XDP-100R and a Shanling M0. All 3 players sound great in Bluetooth aptX mode when connected to proper equipment. Each player sounds best in specific applications. Of the 3 models, I am most impressed with the Shanling M0. That tiny little player sounds amazing in all 3 applications, it's tiny (a plus and a minus, but to me a big plus, I like it!), its Bluetooth signal is the strongest, and its screen the most responsive.

          The R3 is awesome in a different way. I will most probably never use a wireless streaming service because I have such a large library of my own that I started in 1965 with reel-to-reel tape.

          I like the R3 because it sounds the best when transmitting to my Bluetooth headphones. It sounds like a corded set. I use the headphones when I workout. It sounds so good that I can exercise an hour straight no problem. It sounds awesome in all the applications too, just not best.

          The R3 has a nice shape, it feels solid and well built. The only thing that bothers me, and it's on a lot of players, there is a delay in presenting the album artwork. It's better when things happen fast! I would also like a bit more touch sensitivity, however that may cause other problems The EQ is the most responsive of the 3 although all 3 have useful EQ settings. ...


          Great player, still needs a bit of work, hopefully that will come with future firmware updates

          Very nice

          Sounds great (better than my Fiio X3ii and maybe on par with my Hidizs AP200, but I sold the AP200 a while ago due to software issues so I can't do a direct comparison), the screen is excellent, I love the size, no issues with battery life.

          My only complaint is that the album artwork takes about a second to load when scrolling (if it hasn't already loaded), which is annoying but not the end of the world, and I assume it's related to the hardware specs, although if they could find a software solution it would be great. It could also be because I'm using FLAC files with embedded artwork, maybe with MP3's it would be faster? (I saw the same thing happen in a video review of the Hidizs AP80)

          I don't use the online streaming services, so I can't comment on those.
