HiBy has confirmed MQA playback support for the R3 portable music player. An upcoming firmware update will allow MQA compatibility to the HiBy R3 - a compact and lightweight portable music player, that offers a hi-fi music experience, whether at home or on the go.

The HiBy R3 guarantees the purest sound experience by using a premium ESS ES9028Q2M chip, and integrating the professional customization audio system, HiBy OS. The R3 also features full touch screen, WiFi, DLNA, Airplay, Apt-X and native DSD. The MQA integration is another mark of quality that delivers a dynamic listening experience.

The Hiby team will be presenting MQA demos at the Fujiya Avic Headphone Festival in Tokyo (27-28 October), as well as the inaugural Canjam Shanghai (3-4 November).

"Digital music has given users the ability to hold “a thousand songs in their pocket” for over a decade. But that convenience came at the sacrifice of quality. MQA gives the user the ability to keep the convenience of a large library in their pocket, without sacrificing the quality of the music."
