The sound of harmony
With its unique R2R DAC architecture, the new HiBy RS6 offers a uniquely musical, almost analogue sound experience, while offering a modern and fast user interface.
"RS6 performed above my expectations with every IEM and headphone I had at my disposal, there isn't a more customizable DAP today and that's why I'm going to award it with our prestigious Gold Award. Congratulations to the team and I'm looking forward to what's coming next!"
Hiby RS6 Review – Portable R-2R Goodness
"Kudos to HiBy for bringing out an R2R DAP on the Android platform. The RS6 presents a nice alternative to the Cayin R01/N6ii and a different sound signature also which can only benefit the potential buyer in the end. Definitely, a worthy introduction for those analog lovers whose wallets simply will not go as deep for the excellent LP P6 Pro."
HiBy RS6 Review | Headfonics Audio Reviews
"The HiBy RS6 is a wonderfully designed, elegant player that provides many features in a complete package. You have streaming, advanced DSP settings, DTA, Hi-Res Bluetooth, micro SD support, a very fast CPU with a clean UI, 4.4mm BAL and 3.5mm SE outputs in a very rigid copper chassis. This is a dream DAP when it comes to online music streaming. What more can we ask for?"
HiBy RS6 Review - Headfonia Reviews
"R-2R discrete resistor DAC, natural organic tonality with intimate sound presentation, advanced DARWIN architecture, custom IEM presets, super-fast Android performance, 5” HD display, MQA 16x support, system wide MSEB."
The Darwin Architecture
The Darwin architecture is a completely new high-resolution digital signal processing architecture developed by HiBy itself. In a breakthrough evolution of the traditional R2R architecture, the system includes linearity compensation with resistor ladders and, for the first time, advanced features such as linear FIR filters, nonlinear harmonic control, switchable oversampling/NOS and DSD bypass for portable devices. The flexible end-to-end architecture is fully configurable, allowing endless possibilities for future upgrades and endless evolution.
256-way adjustable FIR filter
Darwin architecture allows up to 16x oversampling (and also NOS), with different filter types to choose from to preserve linear phase and reproduce the original sound; moreover, it is adjustable to adapt to different earphone characteristics, ensuring adaptability to different earphone designs and driver configurations.
Fully R2R-based audio architecture
Full of musicality, vibrant and natural, the R2R-based amplifier stage brings the music to life and the performers on stage to an immersive experience.
Switchable oversampling / NOS
NOS mode bypasses oversampling and antialiasing, reacts instantly to transients and stairsteps, and converts the signal to analog as raw and direct as possible.Oversampling mode removes aliasing artifacts, enables all features of the Darwin architecture, and allows customization of the sound signature for different headphones;
DSD bypass function
With separate LPFs for PCM and DSD, native DSD decoding is on an R2R system no longer a contradiction The DSD-specific LPF effectively reduces the RF noise caused by the delta-sigma modulation process, thus optimizing the DSD audio reproduction.

Headphone specific tuning
We have already cooperated with 10 professional HiFi brands in and outside of China and the sound tuning Experts from each brand are brought to match the various hardware parameters of the Darwin architecture to the characteristics of their earbuds to create bespoke tunings for each brand, all available with a touch of the screen; more to come...
MQA 16x unfolding
The high processing power of the SoC enables an unprecedented 16x unfolding of MQA data and thus the reproduction of the Original master bands from ever smaller source files!
MQA is an award-winning technology that captures and reproduces the sound of the original studio master in a file small enough to be streamed and downloaded. HiBy works with MQA to bring the true original sound quality to the listeners.
Mature and powerful SoC
Using the mature and powerful Snapdragon 660, coupled with fast LPDDR4 RAM and eMMC storage, resulting in demanding multithreaded calculations (audio or other) can be performed in record time.
14nm LPP process, 8-core Kryo-260 architecture, 2.2GHz, Adreno 512 GPU, 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB storage and Micro SD slot
Great gain scheme
To the whole To top it off, a 1x OPA1642 and 2x OPA1612 discrete current amplification scheme has been implemented, providing ample current to the output stage to achieve excellent dynamic and transient response. This is then coupled to 4 top-of-the-line OPA1622 op amps to give 8 independent headphone amplification channels connected 2x2 in parallel; each channel is a combination of voltage and current gain stages. This is all controlled by a professional NJW1195A digital volume controller, ensuring optimal control and ideal circuit dynamics at all times.
HiBy OS, the eternal god of audio!
The HiBy OS is the system architecture developed by HiBy for HiFi audio , optimized from the ground up for audio processing. Now adapted for Android 9 OS, it opens the system for free installation of any Android app and also supports advanced audio features like USB audio input and output, wireless audio input and output, and system-wide audio effects.
System-wide Direct Transport Architecture now also with USB
The Direct Transport Architecture has always been known for the originally mandatory sample rate conversion of Android for the integrated headphone output.Now DTA can also bypass sample rate conversion for third-party applications, even if they use USB audio, achieving bit-perfect output from almost any application to anywhere
With the practical HiByLink function, you can control your RS6 via the HiByMusic app on your smartphone and thus playback , volume control, playlist management, etc. remotely!
A wireless world
Supports both Bluetooth audio reception (to wired headphones or USB output) and Bluetooth -Audio transmission (to Bluetooth headphones) according to the Bluetooth 5 standard and a variety of Bluetooth codecs such as UAT, LDAC, aptX, aptX HD, AAC, SBC, etc. Ultra-stable 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi for reliable, ubiquitous online music access. Support DLNA / AirPlay / WiFi audio transmission.
With its 4500mAh high-capacity battery, the RS6 is capable of up to 8.5 hours of continuous playtime and 25 days standby time. Supports Quick Charge QC3.0 for up to 18W charging power.
