    Another streaming option for the iPhone is Airplay over WiFi :) With the R3 and iPhone on the same network, you can toggle on Airplay in R3 wireless options and select the R3 to Airplay to on the iPhone.

    Oh, that's really cool. I've noticed my Note 8 has an LDAC option. :metal:

    In other news, we have had two generous contributors sending us sample albums with the sort order bug and their TIDAL account for an account where "Playback fail" appears for every track. With these bugs being examined closely in-house we hope to squash them in short order. :)

    Is Tidal going to make it? Not looking good. Investors are pulling out and Jay Z is suing previous owners for inflated subscriber numbers. Not an issue for me, I don't use Tidal and I think Jay Z can F-Off. [​IMG] (so can his wife)

    I got bluetooth streaming to work from my iPhone to the R3. I needed to turn Hiby Link OFF on the R3. After that, streaming works great!

    It'd be quite sad if tidal doesn't make it. Streaming is so convenient. Though i don't particularly use it on my r3, since i'm tired of multiple error messages that sometimes appear randomly.

    Happy to hear. That makes sense, as the whole point of Hibylink is to offer a superior interface on your phone to control music files on the dap

    I couldn't get it working and didn't know HiBy Link needed to be turned off for it to work, so thanks for the heads up on that. I'll mostly be using this feature to listen to podcasts streaming off my phone through the R3, since I hate using the dongle with my Pixel 2XL. If HiBy are able to provide an update where the R3 can be used as an LDAC receiver like the Shanling M0, then I'll be using this feature to stream Spotify as well. SBC just doesn't cut it for music, but podcasts are fine.

    Overall, I'm very happy with the R3 now that the shuffling bug has been fixed. For the $230AUD I paid for it through the Kickstarter campaign, there's absolutely nothing else on the market that can compete with it (at least with Australian pricing).

    How does that compare to the coax cable?

    Not sure yet as I just ordered it and won't be coming for a few days. I'll certainly post impressions comparing the two when I get it.

    This is great news! Will work with my S8 and Sony wireless headphone.

    Any updates on the past update about the 2 music streaming companies that is close to coming in to Hiby R3?
