If that tiny thing had a clip adapter it would make a great DAP for sports

The clip case should be available as an aftermarket. I purchased 1 myself for my M0 @ usd.5...

Hiby is pushing the FD1 as a stackable companion to the R2. It’s the same 6.1x6.1. Its package includes a “magic sticker” that I suppose works like Ikko’s ITM05 patch, a kind of double-face adhesive so you can stick the FD1 to another device. It’s a DAC/amp like the R2, but without a screen or streaming capability by itself, and a slight downgrade to the DAC chip (9118 vs 9218); however it should be a superior amp as Hiby label it as such, and it’s got a balanced out. But no figure for output power as of yet.

I’m really curious as the stack seems nifty; although I doubt it will sound better than the Qudelix 5K paired to my shiny new phone.

Hi now that you mention that, I wonder if there exists an aftermarket clip for the Hiby R3
thanks, Jose
I seriously doubt a clip for a larger dap. The M0 & similarly sized daps have the perfect size for a clip case...
