Finally it arrives. Initial impressions.... Compared to my Sabaj DA3 which has a ES9018Q2M, the R3 tonality is on the warmer side. Single ended 3.5mm output sounds lifeless (sounds duller than my Nexus 6p phone). Listening through the balanced 2.5mm output and the music comes alive. The MSEB tone controls are fun to tweak with but it's difficult to fine tune it because of the user interface (UI). Using the slider to set a tone back to 0 proves to be major challenge. May I suggest to implement a "left and right" button to increment and decrement by 1. UI in general is fast and easy to navigate. I wish there was a fast way to go back to the "current playing" screen from any view in the UI. Has enough power to drive my Grado sr325 (single ended) and iems. My most favorite feature of this player is the Hibylink feature and slim form factor. Got this device mainly as a transport for my Chord Mojo and Hugo 2 but haven't tested it yet. Currently liking it and I can see this little guy becoming part of my everyday carry item. Great product.
