DAP REVIEW HiBy RS2 ——twister6


The Smooth Criminal?

PROS: Discrete resistor R-2R DAC, cheapest entry into the world of R2R DAPs, very natural analogue-ish warm sound presentation, bass note weight, excellently implement HiBy MSEB and Equaliser, classic retro user-interface, small/cute form factor, premium looking green and gold colour scheme with an excellent leather case that follow the same design language.

CONS: Not the most resolving DAP in its price segment, tiny screen, no WiFi or Bluetooth.
