    I was considering to buy R3 so i follow thread but many people dont like it, i'm confused. What do you guys recommend in same price range? I thought R3 is one of the best for $200.

    hi guys - my Cayin N3 broke, and need to replace. I want to buy R3 but recent posts dont seem positive at all.

    I use these portable devices for the gym - is the R3 worth it, or should I hold on with my phone and wait for this years DAP's to be released?

  5. phucvm8x
    If you want to try balanced output on this price level, so R3 is still good for you :)

    I know some people are down on it now, for some reason, but I haven't had any major issues with my R3, and I love it. It's much better than my N3, which has been relegated to a drawer. If you're looking for a DAP and don't need about Tidal offline (which I don't), it's great now that the shuffle bug is mostly fixed.

    I will second the ES100 recommendation if you're not looking for a stand-alone player. It's fantastic with my iPhone.

    Yep, same here. Really like it, works fine for me. Don't do Tidal, just play my own collection. Don't even shuffle much TBH.

    I have been following the threads for several sub-$200 DAPs (HiBy R3, Shanling M0, Hidizs AP80) and NONE of them is perfect. I mean if you make a decision by reading other people's opinions and (bad) experiences - you would not buy any of them!
    Just saying :wink:

    Yes of course. Just looking for most suitable for my needs.

    I also have noticed that mojo is sensitive to RF interference. Not only from the R3, but also from an iPhone SE. I had previously seen this iPhone audible RF issue when using one with an Oppo HA-2 DAC. Was similar between the Oppo and the Mojo, and since the only way around it was airplane mode. I sought out a DAP for the Mojo, and I settled on the R3 based on size and the availability of a coaxial input. I haven't turned on bluetooth or Wifi on the R3 for the same reason. Only using the pair with music I've purchased, not any Tidal streaming, so not an issue where I need the wireless connectivity.
    If I wanted full wireless control and Mojo output, I guess the Poly is the only way to go, but I still think that's too expensive for what you get.

    So I just got a Hiby R3 and wanted to use it in my car. However my car doesn't have a 3.5mm aux input. It has 2 USB ports and then Bluetooth audio. I was thinking audio over USB would be better than Bluetooth? Unfortunately I can't just use the 3.5mm jack.

    Is there anyway I can use the Hiby with one of the USB ports in my car?

    Set the USB mode on the R3 to storage and connect it to the car via the usual USB cable?

    If you go to the head-fi Poly thread and search "RF interference" you'll find plenty of results. Here's one for example:

    If the issue persists with Chord's own $$$ dedicated device I would say it's safe to say the issue lies not with whatever is connected to the Mojo but with the Mojo itself.

    The best use case for you seems to be to have the R3 play songs stored on its SD card, connected to the Mojo (which you can't do with your samsung phone unless you want it on airplane mode all the time)

    You can also consider connecting the R3 to the Mojo via a longer cable (both USB OTG and coaxial digital are supported. In the case of the coaxial adapter cable sold separately, simply use a 3.5mm extension cable)
