Mobile Concert Hall

Created for the essence of sound. Take you to the live symphony!

Editorial score: 9.3/10

"The R8 is possibly the most complete DAP on the market at the time of writing... it is about covering the bases to a very high standard based on what we want from our media player. The R8 is the fastest no doubt, the cleverest in terms of DSP application and the most up to date in terms of software. The sound is mature, natural, and smooth sounding. It also has class-leading power also for headphones in turbo mode." Click the full review HERE.

"This is the most incredible unboxing experience ever. I feel it makes for an excellent TOTL player in this segment. Not only is the HiBy R8 an extremely versatile DAP, it also sounds great. The HiBy R8 does it all so effortless and it results in a technically nice, musical and natural delivery." Click the full review HERE.

"HiBy R8 is super-fast based on benchmark scores of being the fastest Android DAP at the current moment. It can handle not just IEMs but also some demanding headphones using its turbo-charged (literally) balanced output which can deliver up to 1W of power. I see it as a flagship because it can challenge other big-name summit-fi audio players." Click the full review HERE.

"The R8 is good in terms of performance. It has advanced solutions both in software and hardware. The R8 delivers their own signature sound on the higher level than before.The R8 is probably one of the best DAPs in terms of in the higher segment in terms of price to quality ratio especially if you need to use some streaming media and so on."

Next-generation Flagship Android HiFi Music Player

Enjoy top-quality audio of anything you want to play, anywhere.

Battery rooted in sound

38Wh ATL custom battery, with pure Co material and high power density, truly high capacity! High power density and low internal resistance, capable of continuous 10000mA current output.

Superpowered power supply, the fruits of independent R&D

4x independent power supply circuits for digital, DAC, preamp and amplification circuity.

Turbo mode

The power output may be adjusted. Turn on Turbo mode to increase power supply voltage on hardware level and change the headphone amp’s working conditions, to drive over-ear headphones with more power and dynamic range.

Luxurious audio loadout

4 ELNA SILMIC capacitors, 10 tantalum capacitors, 18 high ripple-suppression-ratio LDO regulators, 35 Panasonic Hi-Polymer POSCAPs.

Hand-picked gold capacitors

Utilizing gold capacitors reserved for home audio equipment—high precision, high consistency, and hand-matched prior to installation. Guaranteed clean power output and ultimate ripple rejection and low low THD.

ELNA SILMIC II audio capacitors

4 ELNA SILMIC II audio capacitors utilizing natural silk as the dielectric. 3rd order THD under -120dB. Literally silky highs.

Custom designed op-amps

Not found on any other player—we ourselves are involved in the research and design of the model OP02 opamps used in the HiBy R8.

Dual-shielded for pure audio

Customised internal conductive braiding, absorption material, etc. shields against internal interference. Custom made aluminium foil shields motherboard against external interference. Purity of the TeraPlayer achieved in a fully connected smart player.

Femtosecond precision

Dual oscillators locked to 45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz with femtosecond precision reduces phase noise to under -159dBc/Hz @ 1kHz offset.

Dual AK4497 DACs

Powerful decoding and highly efficient. Paired with in-house designed audio pipeline, easily handles DSD512 and 32bit / 768kHz PCM.

Audio system block diagram

Ultimate audio quality and power

3.5mm and 4.4mm separate line and headphone outs (4 ports). Over 1000mW in power drives all over-ear large-scale headphones with ease.

Audio parameters
