HiBy R3 Pro Saber Digital Audio Player

State-of-the-Art Audio Playback

HiBy is back with a new, upgraded version of the well-received R3 Pro. It’s called the R3 Pro Saber—and, true to its name, its hardware is on the cutting edge. Designed for analytical listening, the R3 Pro Saber features dual ES9218P SABRE chips: the inspiration for its name, and the source of its high-performance digital-to-audio conversion. For those listening through the single-ended output, the R3 Pro Saber offers more power than its predecessor: 80 milliwatts per channel at 32 ohms, compared to the 60 milliwatts of output by the standard R3 Pro. For state-of-the-art playback, the R3 Pro Saber supports MQA decoding, plus two-way LDAC over Bluetooth 5.0. For a seamless user experience, it features a responsive touchscreen, micro SD storage up to 2 terabytes, 19 hours of battery life, and an updated HiBy operating system. 

Note: This run is for the HiBy R3 Pro Saber Digital Audio Player in green.

Sorry, I somehow missed this and just saw it today while cleaning out my old e-mails. Here’s the thing, sometimes the price on Drop may be better, sometimes the price on Amazon (especially with Free Prime Shipping) will be better, but oddly there’s a third option — sometimes the Drop’s Amazon price may be different (either higher or lower) than their price on Drop.com. So, if trying to price an item, keep those options in mind. Next, an item may have other sellers on Amazon, but they will all likely share the same lowest price as it will correspond to the “Minimum Advertised Price” or “MAP” that is set by the Manufacturer in order to prevent market disruption by all of their resellers trying to out do one another, which is actually very bad for business as it makes it less sustainable and devalues the product for starters! The next thing that I’m gonna share is very important, and that is what happens to a reseller if they choose to knowingly sell below the MAP. They face punishment(s) from the manufacturer for violating their reseller agreement and they could be stripped of being an authorized reseller, e.g. making your warranty worthless as many limited warranties require that the product is purchased from an authorized reseller. Always make sure you’re buying from an authorized reseller, even if it costs a bit more! It’s never worth risking if your warranty could be voided! Here’s what I do. Amazon could change pricing throughout the day, many people don’t know this, but it could vary several times in a single day. So, check it out throughout the day and for a few days or whenever you would like. Buy it sooner if you think it will sell out sooner than later. I also check Google to see if anyone else is selling the item. Obviously, extremely low prices are unauthorized or knock-offs. I try to go with the most viable one. If an extended warranty is an option like it usually is on Amazon I will pay a bit more for it. Buy it on a credit card with purchase protection so if the price goes down you only have to show the credit card company and get your cash back (just make sure you know their terms before doing this). I buy everything on a credit card in case of fraud or even if it’s lost or stollen during shipping, trust me there are far less headaches this way! Finally, check the price after the purchase as it could still change, higher or lower, but if the price goes down a lot — that’s when it’s worth it for you to do something about it! — I wouldn’t worry about $5 or even $10 on an item over $100 as it’s probably not worth your time. If you paid more than $100 and you could save $25 or $30 through an exchange, a swap, a return and subsequently repurchasing, now that would be worth it! This happened to me when I brought my PC37X as the price went down like $30 on Amazon. I purchased on Amazon for the Free Prime Shipping, and though Drop was the seller, I just figured shipping would be quicker. Now I know that if you live in the Midatlantic region, like anywhere in NJ, Philly, NYC, “Upstate” NY, etc., you’ll only have a couple day wait with Drop anyhow. Just keep in mind that I wouldn’t have realized that the item went down by $30 if I wasn’t checking back every now and again. And, that’s how it’s done. ✌️
