More power All in the pursuit of great sound
4th-gen FPGA with phase-locked loop clock tech+2 femtosecond crystal oscillators
Allowing for a high-precision, low-jitter unified clock source for cleaner and more stable audio.
Specially-optimized audio circuit design
The R7 utilizes an ES9068AS DAC in conjunction with a pair of THX AAA 788+ headphone amplifiers. In addition, inside the R7 are other premium components, such as four Panasonic PPS film capacitors. No expense was spared in using superior components to ensure the R7 faithfully reproduces your audio.
5 gain levels, 3.6W high output power
The R7 has five gain levels: low/medium/high/over-ear headphone/ enhanced over-ear headphone mode. Under a 32Ω load using enhanced over-ear headphone mode, the R7 is capable of outputting up to 3.6W, more than enough to power low- and high-impedance headphones.
Electricity is the root of great sound
DC/AC dual power supply design
Inside the R7 is a 30W switching power supply. The AC input circuit employs filtering and purification with a large capacity choke and dedicated high-voltage capacitors. The DC input circuit is of a ±12V high-voltage power supply design. Both power circuits contribute to the robustness of the power supply system, to better give that dynamic sound to your music. The R7 can also be used with external DC power supplies, such as the FiiO PL50 linear power supply or other power supplies to give your sound an even purer, blacker background to truly make the musical details pop. *Only 12V-3A external DC power supplies are supported
The 12 470uF tantalum capacitors help to regulate and purify power in the power supply and thus further reduce power supply noise. In addition, the specially-designed metal cover locks the transformer in place to the main power supply board, reducing the jitter of the power supply and resulting in more stable power.
Power supply design with numerous LDOs
Thanks to power stabilization and filtering in part due to each stage of the audio circuit employing ultra-low-noise LDOs for voltage regulation, the R7 is continuously fed with stable, clean power.
A simple solution For many demanding needs
The R7 is capable of many tasks, being able to act as a transmitter/ streaming media player/decoder/amplifier/preamp. It effectively consolidates into a compact package what used to require many different devices to do. One simple device can now meet all of your demanding listening needs. The R7 is also highly scalable and can be easily connected to many other external devices, inviting you to further explore the limits of the R7’s truly mind-boggling functionality.
Bold design Exploring new form factors
3 years ago, we already started thinking about how to make a streaming media player that is ideally suited for even the smallest desktop spaces. We explored numerous form factors for a year, such as having a horizontal, flip, or even rotating screen. For each form factor, we built a specifically optimized and handcrafted prototype to truly and fully explore the advantages and disadvantages. After much real-world testing and many lessons learned, we boldly decided that the R7 would adopt a portrait-oriented display, fit within an elegant and compact package. With the R7, we wish to herald a new era in the desktop HiFi experience.
Portrait-oriented screen New innovative heights
Thanks to the 5.0-inch high-definition display and Android operating system, you can enjoyably experience major streaming and other third-party apps like never before on the R7. Satisfy your media consumption desires with the R7.
Handsome design Truly showing the beauty of HiFi
With the suave, square R7 on your desk, your desktop HiFi setup comes to life;
The gorgeous portrait display also helps to save space;
Thanks to the included protective covers, you don’t have to com- promise on maintaining good looks on your great-sounding unit;
The side honeycomb vents serve as both heat dissipators and as a futuristic touch;
A recessed rear panel means more elegant wire connections and less clutter;
The seamless WiFi/Bluetooth antenna packs much capability in a simple square inch;
The customizable RGB lights give your desktop setup some extra personality.
