Worst OTA speeds I have ever witnessed. Is there a download link to the new firmware?

Every other time, the update has crawled. This time, they must have upgraded the servers - super fast for me! Now to wait for the customized version.

Compared to my Shanling M5s, I swear the R3 gives the Mezes more of an added treble boost it needs.
Overall, the R3 and the Meze Classics make for a splendid combination. :o2smile:

Nope Wolfson is the only one with Modulation filtering that warms up, no clue why Ess or any of the others even progressed on portable daps that cannot move sound in under 3 years hahaha

I bought my R3 while in China - works a treat --- except when using as a DAC to my Mac i get klicks --- is there something i am missing in settings? it is as if in DAC mode to little data is buffered. no such issues when playing from the SD card, or streaming from tidal. @Joe Bloggs any ideas?

What IEM do you use?
because I have doubts about output impedance of the R3 not being what Hiby stated but much higher. I asked many times the question, never answered... I was using Andromeda and the synergy was bad,kind of sound you have from high impedance device...

I'm experiencing exactly the same with Andromeda. No way R3 have 1 ohm (if i'm not wrong, it's what hiby stated) on HO Single Ended, balanced is even worse (for Adromeda's). I mainly use R3 as transport for Mojo, but at least the times I used it as DAP i really don't think it's warm sounding, based on my references and current IEMs (see my signature plus Q5, that i have no more), R3 is balanced with a little tendencies to bright, almost mild V depending of IEMs (Oriolus for example, becomes a little more bassy and bright, more towards V compared with Mojo). Andromeda's is a complete different IEM, the most source/eartip dependent of my IEMs by far.

Having personally electrically tested the output impedance of the R3 I have no reason to doubt HiBy's assertion that it is somewhere under 1 ohm. It is certainly nowhere near the 10 of the R6.
