    Yes it's definitely WOW! Well recorded albums on Tidal mqa Now sound spectacular esp classic like Bach Trio but even Robert Plant Stealing Fire album is much improved! I'm wondering how much better the R6 and R6pro would be? But the R3 Zenith With MQA Albums is a magical combo for something this small!

    I've pointed out @Snoopy112 's efforts to HiBy for reference... ts.png

    Could you also ask HiBy about a real QWERTY keyboard? That old "smartphone-keyboard" is a real PITA.
    Having a full keyboard would greatly boost the usability of the Tidal implementation.

    Thanks for continuing to support the community! :beerchug::thumbsup:

    Don't recall if this has been mentioned before...tonight I was using the wireless upload capability to put an album by the band O$VMV$M on my R3. Within my Music folder created one called O$VMV$M, & another called O$VMV$M (2018) under that, but when I uploaded the files they just disappeared off the screen. Checking the R3 after, no sign of the tracks. Assume the $ causes the problem. Connected by USB & copied the files on no problem.

    Also, anyone seeing the Bluetooth details screen (the bit that starts with 'Device name', 'Quality'... etc) not appearing as consistently as it used to? Always used to appear regardless of the status of any Bluetooth activity, find now that if my Bluetooth earbuds switch off & I reactivate them, & go back to the Hiby Bluetooth settings I just see the slider, no details below it. Having to turn my R3 off to get them back. Only just noticing this, so might need to see if there's a pattern to the behaviour or if it's just some temporary weirdness...

    20190305_232022.jpg Suprisingly decent pairing, I find the R3 to be neutral and the bass quality is a little bit lack to me with the Solaris. Other then that not to bad for a budget DAP, also no hiss.

    Anyone else getting error code 400 when trying to play either Tidal or Qobuz? Tidal was working before the latest update. Now Qobuz and Tidal just show the same error msg. Any ideas? I've factory reset both, logged out and back in to both.

    Im intermittently getting that error and it seems due to internet data flow not being sufficient. connected new modem and its happening less frequently, but still happens occasionally.
    Tidal will work fine then give me that error for 3-10 minutes and then start streaming again. wierd and inconvenient and disruptive.

    If you connect the R3 as usb dac to a computer that is running tidal desktop with first mqa unfold, will R3 be able to do the second mqa unfold?

    Was hoping the new firmware would fix my lyrics situation, or is it just me being dumb and can't figured out how to do it properly. Did anybody else can get their's to display the embedded lyrics? I don't mean the karaoke style lrc file, just a normal static one. Tried several methods of embedding the lyrics but nothing worked so far. Had already emailed Hiby support a few weeks back with a sample mp3 file and received a reply that they will look at the problem. Currently using Snoopy's custom 3.0 FW.

    I don't believe the Hiby firmware parses embedded lyrics. So far as I can tell, only time-stamped LRC files with the same filename as the song work.

    I’m running 3.0 with IMR R1 Zeniths too and I have to agree they do pair really,really nicely. Now that I’ve settled on the right nozzle and ear tips.
