Will I have warranty?
How are the terms for International sales?

As I frequently mentioned, I'm really no Fan if the price gauging of the german distributor.

Having another option that also offers warranty, might have big impact on future buying decisions for me

He was talking that price after coupons, with the original price being $196. Even your screenshot shows that there would be $16 off and there were other Aliexpress 11.11 coupons that were allowed to be applied to that purchase. I just want to make sure that if I purchased it from the Cayin official store on Aliexpress, that the warranty would be valid? Thanks...

My mistake, you'll receive full warranty coverage when you buy the RU6 from the official Cayin store in Aliexpress.

I have checked with our Sales team, we didn't offer the coupon or discount code, it is a Bachelors' Day (Double Eleven) promotion campaign (11 Nov to 17 Nov) hosted by Aliexpress. Cayin received our share of $195.99 exactly from each transaction, so Aliexpress has topped up for the campaign. That's why we were not been informed in advance causing the misunderstanding. My apology for the misleading comment earlier on.

No worries, Andy. Thanks for the great customer support by thoroughly looking into this though!

Hey guys, is it possible to use the Astell & Kern Pa10 with the RU6? Or do I need a line out function like on the RU7?

If you set the RU6 to high gain with a volume of 76 you should get good results.

I apologize in advance for this question. Is there a consensus on which sounds better between the ru6 and ru7?

I’ve had then all pretty much but the 6. I have the 7 right now. It’s very good.
All the opinions I have read people said ru6 sounds better.

Don't know about other people but in my personal opinion I found the RU6 to be better than the RU7. Two non audiohiles(relatively new entrants) also opined on the first listen that RU6 was the best among the two and they liked the RU6 better than the mojo 2 as well whereas I like the mojo 2 more.

I find the RU6 takes an hour or two to warm up and sound it's best. RU7 I find you can grab 'n go and it sounds great straight away.

They sound different. Better is very subjective.
RU6 and RU7 are both excellent dongles... just two different flavours :L3000:

I have the RU6 and I have never heard the RU7. Can you or anyone describe the differences in sound?
