Hiby R3 Pro or R3 Pro Saber

more_vert
Anybody own either the Hiby R3 Pro or R3 Pro Saber? Own the regular R3 and wondering if either is really worth the jump (would likely get the R3 Pro Saber). Have just started beefing up my headphone and DAC game and wanted to know your thoughts. Thanks

I'd think that balanced output is what you gain the most by making this switch. Why don't you look into Lotoo Paw S1? It's a USB C dongle DAC/AMP that's just been released. This can make use of your R3 and give you 4.5mm balanced output. It can also connect to your PC and tide you over until you commit yourself to a more serious DAC/AMP setup. If you stream music on your phone, it can even hook you up there. As far as driving power goes, S1 can drive HD650 to painful levels and beyond on high gain, starting at around 50/100 volume level through the 4.5mm out.
