I have been following HiBy since the original R6 was announced a few years back and held off then because of "issues", probably the biggest of which for me was the output impedance debate. So I have been happily using my DX90, and occasionally my Plenue P1, while following the likes of the R6, X7, DX200, DX150, etc as they were announced and released. So you are right - I don't need a new DAP and I imagine that any improvements over my existing devices will not be night and day improvements. I do really like the design of the R6/R6 Pro and still am not ruling it out.Yes, all true, and I “liked” the post. But a different set of questions for those thinking about this DAP is (a) do you need a new DAP, (b) what features do you need, (c) what options exist that meet a and b, and (d) what price are you willing to pay for something that meets a and b. Seems that focusing on essentially that they should charge less misses the points about what is needed, what options exist, and what all of that is worth. But, I get it, less expensive for the same value is always better.
Sorry if I misunderstood you.
However, with the details just released on the M11 at nearly half the price of the R6 Pro and upcoming DX220 I can be much more patient.
Thanks for your thoughts on my post - value is always a very subjective thing and each person will have differing views.
