    Astell & Kern SR15: A&norma Impressions & Reviews

    I couldn’t find it either and ended up doing a google search for “Last.fm apk apkpure” Unfortunately, once installed, the app really doesn’t do much and doesn’t scrobble music from the built-in music app or the native Tidal app. Its basically useless to me so I deleted it.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I am running R6PROInt_1.11GBeta_20190127_1546 There is a closed Facebook Group where @Joe Bloggs posted some patches for the native resolution issues. Here is a link to the post but you have to belong to the group I think...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I completely agree. I can simply say that the issue occurs but it doesn’t affect me enough to be concerned.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    That is similar to the results of my testing as well. To be clear to others reading this thread, this is not hiss, white noise, or the R6 Pro’s noise floor we are talking about. It is not background noise that is inaudible while music is playing. We are not referring to the ‘blackness’ of...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I’ve got an iBasso adapter coming tomorrow so I plan to do more testing. Hopefully I can test it in the afternoon (Pacific Time) and let you know what I find. The adapter doesn’t explain why I get the interference on the 3.5mm jack with the stock Westone cable though.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I’m using the iBasso CB13 cable with a Cayin adapter on 4.4mm jack with Shure SE846s and get the interference only on the left side. I also get the same interference on the 3.5mm jack using several different IEMs and cables. I used my Westone UM Pro 50s with a stock cable on 3.5mm jack and still...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    The R6 Pro does have an airplane mode under Network and Internet Settings but most of the time I am streaming via Tidal or Qobuz so airplane mode doesn’t help my main use-case situation at work. In any case, I turned airplane mode on for the R6 Pro and was eventually able to get the interference...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    Strangely, the interference (crackling not hissing) is sporadic for me. Once it is happening, I can move the phone closer to the R6 Pro and it amplifies. Other times, I can set the phone directly on the R6 Pro with no interference at all. Weird! Still, it doesn’t happen enough to hinder my...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I’m thinking this isn’t an issue with cables or sensitive IEMs because I’ve had the interference regardless of cable, earphone (including full size cans), or jack used. I’m thinking (just speculating) there was such a backlash over the R6’s WiFi strength and drop-outs that they designed the Pro...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I’ve been trying my R6 Pro with my Shure SE846, Grado RS1e, Oppo PM3, and Westone UM Pro 50 earphones and I haven’t really experienced background hiss. However, I can occasionally get WiFi or Bluetooth interference. I can’t get it to do it ‘on-demand’ but once it starts, I can set my iPhone on...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I have the R6 and don’t regret getting the R6 Pro. To me the Pro is quite a bit improved. The touchscreen reacts faster and is calibrated better, there is a clear improvement in WiFi strength and function, and I am preferring the overall tonality to the Pro over the original R6. I have only...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    Glad to hear it is just a cable issue. I’ve been using the R6 Pro with Shure SE846, an iBasso balanced 2.5mm cable, and the 2.5mm to 4mm Cayin adapter and have absolutely no issues with pops or hiss. The SE846 is a pretty sensitive IEM as well.

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Everything is working great for me so far. Qobuz is playing correctly. Tidal is working correctly with the MQA files (88.2k or 96k with first unfold). I do get their HiFi quality files showing as 88.2k instead of 44.1k but I’m not sure that is a Hiby issue or a Tidal issue as I didn’t experience...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    The DTA master switch idea is way better than trying to maintain a whitelist of possible apps that would use it. The master switch would cover more use-case scenarios as well. At the present time (after the current 8.1 OTA update), Hiby can’t really market the R6 as playing native resolutions...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    I bought the UAPP MQA plugin before Tidal allowed Masters on Android so I am seeing the first MQA unfold while using UAPP (96k or 88.2k). At the time, I wasn’t expecting Tidal to allow Masters on mobile. Right now I am doing the Qobuz US beta as well and can confirm it works through UAPP but...

    I jumped the gun on UAPP though. Sorry. Tidal and Qobuz are streaming correctly through UAPP app.

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    The latest R6 firmware update displays 44.1k for all files streamed from Qobuz, Tidal, and through UAPP regardless of stream quality. mConnect plays 44.1k files correctly but all others are choppy and unlistenable. The Hiby app, however, seems to play local files correctly. Is there a way to...
