The new RS2 is HiBy's second digital audio player that uses the Darwin audio architecture and can be pre-ordered for US$479. It supports up to 4 TB of storage via two card slots, 3.5 / 4.4 mm dual headphone output, PCM 384 kHz/DSD 256 audio, as well as up to 10 hours of play time and 40 days standby.

Audio brand HiBy is currently selling quite a few R-series devices and the latest addition to the family is the RS2. Based on the Darwin audio architecture, the HiBy RS2 "brings the amazing Darwin R2R technology to your pockets in a small and versatile form factor." 

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the HiBy RS2 digital audio player:

  • R2R network linearity compensation
  • R2R resistor ladder network linearity compensation
  • 256-tap adjustable FIR filter
  • NOS / OS mode switch
  • HiByOS PureAudio version
  • Touchscreen operation
  • Bespoke customized UI
  • MQA 8x unfolding
  • PCM 384KHz / DSD256
  • Dual card storage
  • Up to 4TB of music storage
  • 3.5mm / 4.4mm dual headphone out
  • USB DAC / Coaxial digital / Line Out
  • 3500mAh battery
  • Up to 10 hours of playtime
  • Standby for up to 40 days

Those who pre-order for US$479 will also get three essential accessories in the retail package, namely a leather case, a 3.5 mm male-to-male audio line out cable, and an RS series key chain. The pre-order period will end on September 5. The leather case will remain a part of the package after that, but the audio cable and key chain will go away since both are freebies exclusively available for those who pre-order.

For just US$20 more, there is also a pre-order package that includes the Hela IEMS.
