(New 2021 Version upgraded to 128GB Internal Storage and 6GB RAM)
Battery rooted in sound
38Wh ATL custom battery, with pure Co material and high power density, truly high capacity! High power density and low internal resistance, capable of continuous 10000mA current output.
Superpowered power supply, the fruits of independent R&D
4x independent power supply circuits for digital, DAC, preamp and amplification circuity.
The power output may be adjusted. Turn on Turbo mode to increase power supply voltage on hardware level and change the headphone amp’s working conditions, to drive over-ear headphones with more power and dynamic range.
Luxurious audio loadout
4 ELNA SILMIC capacitors, 10 tantalum capacitors, 18 high ripple-suppression-ratio LDO regulators, 35 Panasonic Hi-Polymer POSCAPs.
Hand-picked gold capacitors
Utilizing gold capacitors reserved for home audio equipment—high precision, high consistency, and hand-matched prior to installation. Guaranteed clean power output and ultimate ripple rejection and low low THD.
ELNA SILMIC II audio capacitors
4 ELNA SILMIC II audio capacitors utilizing natural silk as the dielectric. 3rd order THD under -120dB. Literally silky highs.
Custom designed op-amps
Not found on any other player—we ourselves are involved in the research and design of the model OP02 opamps used in the HiBy R8.
Dual-shielded for pure audio
Customised internal conductive braiding, absorption material, etc. shields against internal interference. Custom made aluminium foil shields motherboard against external interference. Purity of the TeraPlayer achieved in a fully connected smart player.
Dual oscillators locked to 45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz with femtosecond precision reduces phase noise to under -159dBc/Hz @ 1kHz offset.
Dual AK4497 DACs
Powerful decoding and highly efficient. Paired with in-house designed audio pipeline, easily handles DSD512 and 32bit / 768kHz PCM.
Ultimate audio quality and power
3.5mm and 4.4mm separate line and headphone outs (4 ports). Over 1000mW in power drives all over-ear large-scale headphones with ease.
MQA rendering to 16x
HiBy R8 is the first portable music player that is capable of MQA rendering to 16x. MQA is an award-winning technology that captures and reproduces the sound of the original studio master in a file that’s small enough to stream and download. HiBy is collaborating with MQA to deliver the true original sound quality to listeners.
Snappy as a Snapdragon
Snapdragon 660 SoC for driving a modern Android operating system with speed and stability. 14nm LPP process, 8x Kryo 260, Adreno 512 GPU, CPU frequency up to 2.2GHz. 4GB RAM+ 64GB ROM + 2TB SD storage.
A full mastering console in wireless era
WiFi 2.4/5GHz dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, two-way Bluetooth (transmit and receive audio) and UAT. Supports music transfer by HiByLink, DLNA, AirPlay and WiFi. UAT (Ultra Audio Transmission) is a Hi-Res Bluetooth codec independently researched and developed by HiBy Music. Supporting an industry-first 192kHz sample rate and 1.2Mbps bitrate, this Bluetooth codec can even optimize itself in recognition of different music genres.
