Android Lossless Digital Music Player

Dual ES9038Q2M, Snapdragon 660 SoC, 5.0'' 1080P large hi-res display, Open Android 9, MQA 16X unfolding, DSD512, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage

Sound of Harmony

Delivers a balanced yet inspiring audio performance in bold, muscular visual fashion, while providing a silky smooth and snappy user interface.

A classic revamped

The R6 redesigned with the new R series design language—bold, muscular straight lines.

Japanese Alps rotary encoder

Japanese Alps rotary encoder for smooth volume adjustments.

Fast and mature SoC

Utilizing an upgraded Snapdragon 660 SoC, the R6 has speed and stability in spades, as can be expected when combined with the mature Android HiBy OS.
4nm LPP process; class-leading 8-core Kryo 260 architecture; speeds up to 2.2GHz; Adreno 512 GPU. 4GB RAM + 64GB storage + up to 2TB storage expansion via micro SD card.

Dual ES9038Q2M

Upgraded to dual ES9038Q2M with native support for DSD512, 32bit / 768kHz, both DACs in operation for both SE and balanced output! Utilizes current-mode output for even better noise rejection—for the cleanest backgrounds to your pure listening enjoyment.

Dual crystal oscillators

High-accuracy, low-phase-noise crystal oscillators dedicated to 45.1584and 49.152MHz, for flawless low-jitter performance for music at any sample rate.

All new power supply circuit design

Line and amplification stages driven by two independent isolated power supplies for cleaner, more powerful dynamics.

Audio circuit design

OPA 1612 as the line stages, coupled with low-ESR Panasonic POSCAPs and pro-audio grade Elna caps for a balanced yet inspiring audio performance that easily handles all music genres.

Multiple audio outputs

Both 3.5mm SE and 4.4mm balanced ports can act both as line out and headphone outputs. Drive headphones directly, drive a headphone amp, drive an outboard DAC… the sky's the limit.

1080p large hi-res display

A graphical performance as finely detailed and colour-accurate as the audio! 5.0” Corning Gorilla glass; 1920x1080 resolution; 443ppi; 16:9; oleophobic-coated. Supports advanced user-friendly operations such as tap-to-wake, triple-finger-downswipe to screencap.

HiBy OS updated to Android 9

HiBy OS is HiBy’s in-house developed rebuild of the Android system architecture, optimized for bit-perfect audio, unlike stock Android. Now updated to Android 9, supports the R6 in all desired audio I/O roles such as USB audio in / out, Bluetooth audio in / out simultaneously for unlimited flexibility.

Systemwide Direct Transport Audio Architecture

Bypasses Android's sample rate conversions at the system level for bit-perfect audio output.

MQA 16x unfolding

The strong processing power of the SoC allows for an unprecedented 16x unfolding of MQA audio for audio quality that even the mastering engineer couldn't dream of.

HiByLink

Install the HiByMusic app on your Android or iOS smartphone and you can control the R6 from afar using WiFi or Bluetooth, for browsing, playing, skipping tracks, adjusting volume, etc.

MSEB Systemwide MSEB tuning

The MageSound Eight-Ball (MSEB) is HiBy's in-house researched sound tuning algorithm for adjusting desired audio qualities such as warmth, note thickness, vocal positioning, etc. directly instead of splitting the audio up into numbered frequencies. On the R6 it is available as a systemwide module for effecting all audio played on the device.*

*other than MQA, which MQA prohibits from modifying. 

Hi-res Bluetooth codecs

Sporting Bluetooth 5.0, the HiBy R6 supports Bluetooth audio in both input and output directions, with advanced codecs such as UAT, LDAC, aptX, aptX HD, AAC, SBC, etc.

Effortless connectivity

Strong 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals for fast, stable connection online to get your favourite music.

Wireless control

Supports DLNA and AirPlay remote playback and music file transfer via WiFi.

Playtime for all time

Up to 8.5 hours (balanced ) or 10 hours (SE) continuous play time. Up to 25 days standby time.

USB3.1 / Type-C

Faster data transfer, QC3.0 fast charging, supports coaxial digital output.
