HiBy, who created the HiBy Music app and several popular DAPs like R3 and R6 Pro just announced their new W5 Bluetooth amplifier. But stop right there! It is not only an amplifier but a wireless DAC. Let’s just jump to the specs and features, shall we?
First, HiBy W5 uses ES9218P which is a DAC or audio decoding chip. By using this chip, W5 can decode from digital audio to analog audio with hi-res sound quality. Not only that, W5 supports Qualcomm aptX, AAC, LDAC, and their new feature UAT (Ultra Audio Transmission) can transmit 192 kHz sampling audio.
Next stop: the design and build quality! The design of HiBy W5 is very simple: it’s oval and round with a removable clip. The body design uses stainless steel, a material so strong to buffer impacts. Not only sturdy, HiBy W5 is IP67 certified; resistant to water and dust.
So, music enthusiasts! Ready to purchase the amp?
