Sorry if answered or I missed it in your review... but does it allow for TIDAL and Spotify to be used offline yet? Also, was it the R3 Pro original or Saber you used in comparisons?

off-line is only available in a full Android app. R2/R3/pro uses native cutdown version of Tidal and Qobuz for streaming only, including access to your playlists.

Thanks to @twister6 for answering. I use the R3 Pro Original for comparison. Cheers.

Thanks. My FIIO M6 is starting to develop black pixelated lines over the screen and outwith warranty. I'm looking for a DAP that has Tidal offline but don't want to break the bank... def under £200 which is limiting me to eBay for pre-owned, but the decent ones are being snapped up quickly... guess cos people are in lockdown looking for passtime

Just received my Hiby R2. It doesn't appear to allow the option of playing albums sequentially. That's counter intuitive, does anyone know how to to get it to do so?
There's a "Play through Folders" and a "Play through Albums" setting in Play Settings.

Yes, I've seen those toggles and tried them. I still get the player moving alphabetically through all of the tracks; they don't appear to do anything.

Also, are others experiencing regular bluetooth drop outs? I've connected my R2 to two different sets of bluetooth iems and in both cases even when the player is in my coat pocket it disconnects and reconnects with an irritating consistency. The problem isn't the earphones as both pairs maintain a perfect connection with a much cheaper DAP I purchased from Amazon.
