Hiby R5 (Gen 2) Audio Componentry
Class A headphone amplifier | Discrete output stage | Dual ES9219C DACs | Dual crystal oscillators | Luxurious audiophile grade componentry
A-class class-A amplification
Employing flagship grade class-A amplification in this mid-tier android DAP, the R5 utilizes Class A discrete balanced amplification circuitry, capable of continuous high power output, with plentiful energy reserves for all music genres. Converting power with ease for the most dynamic compositions, the sound is clear and full.
Discrete output stage
With 4 independent channels of push-pull amplification with 270° conduction angles constructed of discrete componentry, including 8 high powered paired bipolar transistors, the R5 provides excellent current output power and control over variable loads. Enable Class A headamp mode for class-beating audio performance! THD is down at 0.0006% at the amplified output for unparalleled realism.
Dual High-Performance DACs for astonishing music resolution
Dual ES9219C DACs natively support DSD256, PCM768kHz/32bit high-res formats, with SNR of 130dB and THD+N down below -112dB. Presenting a highly accurate output voltage, ensures the most accurate signal is given to the class-A amp section for amplification; also supporting integrated DAC-amp output (economy mode) for excellent low power consumption and extra long play time.
Dual independent crystal oscillators, FPGA clock algorithm
Utilizing dual independent audiophile-grade crystal oscillators at 45.158MHz and 49.152MHz provides high precision timing for all audio events in your music.
Cost-no-object audio componentry naturally lays the path to quality sound
Employing 163 high-precision resistors, 19 Panasonic tantalum POSCAPs, and 4 ELNA electrolytic capacitors maximally suppresses power supply ripple, yielding silky black backgrounds.
Looong playtime and great sound
Huge screen for the win!
Huge colourful 4.7” 720p display on a compact package, for perfect display and control of your albums.
