    Forgot to mention that Sansa Clip + has a very basic,but wonderful OLED screen.

    This is not a smartphone and isn't Android, so you can't watch videos on it, you can't play games, you can't browse the internet, so it doesn't really mattet ifit's OLED, AMOLED or whatever. And of course bringing up the small 2-color oled screen of certain Players. The important thing is tmfor the r3's screen to be bright enough to be viewable under sunlight

    I don't know where the message went, but Joe bloggs himself said that it was a typo and the screen is actually a led back-lit IPS tft screen

    I don't understand the obsession everyone here is having about OLED screens over IPS. It's a small AUDIO player for audio playback, not a tablet for watching vids. Surely SQ (or at the very least hardware that concerns/affects SQ) should be the main focus, not PQ... or am I missing something here?

    edit: ok, not everyone

    What they show in the video does not look like Tidal app, at least.
    Do they integrate it into the DAP original player?

    BTW, Hiby confirmed usb audio out on the R3.

    Yes they have integrated it. As the os is based on Linux and not on android, they had to integrate it.

    If you say so, but nothing beats my Sansa Clip+'s two-color OLED, where they still count the resolution in "lines of legible text" (4!!!) :grimacing:

    (actually is really nice, super easy to read in daylight, which is the thing I really care about on a DAP, regardless of panel type)

    *edit* oops, beat me to it

    You are correct about the R6 screen, it isn't OLED, it's IPS. I have the R6, and I can tell you that the screen is top tier. If the R3 has a similar screen, I don't think anyone will be disappointed.

    That is true. I have had an ips led monitor for like 3 years and i still marvel at its color accuracy and viewing angles. In fact, for a dap this small, i don't think an oled panel is required anyways.

    AFAIK there aren't any screenless DAPs with balanced output, Hiby could be first in class! They would be rolling in the roubles.

    They seriously just need to release it already!!! :L3000::L3000::L3000:

    What happened to your earlier post?

    Just discovered this thread and this exciting upcoming little Player Wow, usb audio out, DSD256, PCM384!! Just the mate my iFi micro idsd has been waiting for. Currently using a Fiio X5ii which has coax out but the micro doesn't play DSD via coax. I am very psyched for this.
    What is the projected price point for this?? The usb audio out is the thing I've been looking for. Has the usb port type (mini, micro, type C) been defined?
