Already up for pre-order on TB at RMB$2700 or $USD469 at Hifigo. Noticed how none of the promo material released by Ibasso mention what SOC the DX160 is running on? Apparently it uses the same SOC as the DX220, which is rk3368, and many people would instantly relate rockchip to sluggish performance.

Hiby R5 is also recently launched and available on Hiby's own site for USD$399. It runs on SD425 and houses the same dual CS43198 dac as the DX160. It runs on open android which means you can install ANY android apps onto the device. The R5 also have a larger battery capacity at 3500mah and longer runtime per charge.

But all these are just paper specs. Hard to say which is the overall better player in terms of sound quality and ease of operation without having a chance for hands on usage. Need to wait for reviews to appear online for these players.

A LeEco Le Max 2 Smartphone rooted runs Android 10, has a capable SD820 processor with a 2K screen !

And only now cost SGD$160 online

Hi-res audio is a popular term for higher-quality audio formats, and codecs such as ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec), DSD (Direct Digital Stream) and MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) are available on capable smartphones.

LeEco Le Max 2 support all these audio formats.
