Here you see a 1kHz square wave signal sampled at 192kHz, being put out by a music app on android. On usual Android devices this signal would be resampled and mixed into the fixed 48kHz system audio stream, producing a digital output to the DAC like the upper picture. Whereas on the R6, DTA architecture bypasses Android Sample Rate Conversion (SRC) for all apps, the signal would pass unaltered to the DAC like the lower picture.

So you see, in the past you could get a phone or player with a "quad DAC", or even a power-hungry 8-channel ES9018S meant for home audio. But today for the first time, you will be sending the original signal to the DAC, to be converted into the original sound reaching your ears. From almost all Android apps, not just the one or two hi-res compatible apps bundled with the player



*** A notice about Tidal on the R6 by Joe Bloggs of HiBy Music ***

See the link below for ongoing discussions about using TIDAL with the R6.

FYI
Here is reply I got when I contacted HiBy marketing about the R6, which seems to be an actual HiBy brand DAP :


Thank you for your interest! We are still developing the player; as soon as we have more details and/or English promotional material, we'll let you know.

Best regards,

Development is proceeding.. Here is some English Promotional Info from Joe Bloggs :



No real new info from what I can see. Looks like it should be a very nice DAP !
Indeed it's shaping up to be a possibly awesome DAP. I hope those buttons on the sides have a nice concave curve so they're easy to find and manipulate in your pocket.

It's not clear if it refers to balanced or single ended output
