Hiby R8 Headfonics Score 9.2

"The R8 is possibly the most complete DAP on the market at the time of writing... it is about covering the bases to a very high standard based on what we want from our media player.The R8 is the fastest no doubt, the cleverest in terms of DSP application and the most up to date in terms of software . The sound is mature, natural, and smooth sounding. It also has class-leading power also for headphones in turbo mode."

Twister 6

"HiBy R8 is super-fast based on benchmark scores of being the fastest Android DAP at the current moment. It can handle not just IEMs but also some demanding headphones using its turbo-charged (literally) balanced output which can deliver up to 1W of power. I see it as a flagship because it can challenge other big-name summit-fi audio players."
