Awesome. Happy to hear that the sonic performance is a step up from the R5. In your opinion, would you say that the upper mids and lower treble are fairly neutral, bright, or laid back? Compared to your R5 as well.

Firstly I look up to Tech specs of RS2 e.g. THD+N, SNR, Crosstalk. I feel disappointed. Though, reading some early reviews make me interest. Look forward to reading more full-version reviews.

R-2R architecture is usually not good on papers.

Hi mate @Joe Bloggs , may we please see a picture of the other side of the RS2 PCB, as that is where the Amp circuit is.

Thanks,

Got excited and bought directly from a China shop (who showed photos that they have it already in stock). Purchased last Monday, until now it has not been shipped 🤦‍♂️ - either they are still waitng for their stocks to come in or it hasn't been picked up yet by the logistics company 🤷‍♂️

If it was possible to have streaming, I would have certainly bought it. I almost exclusively listen to Tidal. I will keep my RU6 that gives me a lot of satisfaction. When you try R2R Dac, there is no way back

I only use streaming for sampling/discovering new music, actual playing is from my local library so this player could be perfect and will be my first sample of r2r sound

Now I have three choices to choose from: RS2 (R2R in small form factor), DX170 (successor of my current favorite small DAP), M11s (not release yet, the page on Fiio is also not published, a little too large than my taste). I also have thoughts on second hand SR25 mk2 and MW1A.

Many people in China has listened rs2 during events organised by Hiby, or where Hiby took a part…
Some comments suggested RS2 is similar to RS6, though comments in chinese forum are usually less reliable (more paid shills than real customers feedback).
