    Looks promising. Battery life looks good if it applies to red book flac files. Disappointed to see 2.5mm output. That really needs to be consigned to the dustbin of history. 4.4mm is the new standard for balanced outputs. Eagerly waiting more info on this one.

    Love the sound, UI and form factor of the R3, if the Pro betters all of that, it'll be a win for me.

    Good to see 2.5mm still in use. Love the lightweight instead of 4.4mm heavyweight plug.

    There is a real hype around CS those days... R5 as dual CS, also the DX160 of ibasso... new round between concurent !
    Any info about the firmware change from the siblings ?

    Cirrus Logic sound sightly different than the old Sabre used in R3.
    Don't know if it's sound better for you, but it's a noticable information.

    Disappointed to see 2.5mm output like @technobear

    Was looking hard at the R5 but it is out of my price range

    Then I found this thread and the R3 Pro looks like a really good option. I passed on the R3 mainly because of the poor battery life compared to my Fiio M7. While I really enjoy listening to the M7 it has ongoing niggles that continually frustrate me. It still can't sort tracks in proper alphabetical order, the Fiio Music App crashes multiple times when scanning for new tracks. Periodically there is a glitch playing tracks that I find very annoying. Not a fan of Android as it is overkill for the M7 without wifi or streaming, very slow to boot. Can't get my Windows 7 computer to recognize it reliably when connected to add tracks.

    Hoping to see a price soon for the R3 Pro.

    It is around 1500rmb so $215. Starts shipping 11.11

    Nice! so about $300 CDN which is more than doable for me. Definitely a better unit than the R3 for not much more.

    Any idea if there is an updated release? Website still says coming soon
  10. acygni
    I was talking about the Chinese version. I just got mine shipped hopefully getting it in a week.
  11. Simplesam82
    Guess I’ll have to wait for the North American or English version :frowning2:
  12. acygni
    It does have multive languages but I think some person said the Chinese version may not support all of the global streaming services. But I can't care less about that.

    I don't care about streaming services either but wary of importing DAP's. Hopefully by the time it comes to Canada there will be multiple reviews and posts on usability etc... I can wait a few months if need be to avoid importing and get some feedback on the unit.
  14. acygni
    Yea not sure about Canada but DHL delivers right to my house in the US together with my new phone also from China no less. Lol
  15. fish1050
    There are several dealers in Toronto that carry DAP's so hopefully one will bring in the R3 Pro so I can demo it.
