What is it?
The HiFiMAN R2R2000 an example of the best technology we have for portable music playback. It is also an aspirational device that, providing you have program material to match, provides state of the art music playback. Unlike many digital audio players, it can serve as a high quality DAC and stream at very high quality over wireless connections.
Every so often it’s good to sort of recalibrate our perceptions of how sound can be reproduced with a first class product that many of us could not afford to buy, but one that lets us hear what the ‘best’ can sound like. With an original design, a dedicated operating system, and a superb DAC, HiFiMAN has created a class-leading product that for many, myself included, redefines what a hand held music player can do when reproducing high quality music files.
The World’s First High Definition Audio LHDC Bluetooth Streaming Device, this is one amazing product. As R2R denotes, this is about as pure as musical digital audio conversion ever gets. The R2R2000 utilizes dual PCM1704 R2R DAC chips in a dual path circuit design. All in a compact pocketable product for home or on the go. Its capabilities make the R2R2000 the Swiss Army Knife of High-End Audio. The HiFiMan R2R 2000 is the ultimate Bluetooth streaming device, USB DAC, and portable music player.
How does it work?
The R2R 2000 Digital Audio Player from HIFIMAN is a portable HD resolution audio player and USB DAC streaming device for audio enthusiasts. The unit can play files up to 24-bit/384 kHz via its USB Type-C connection. It supports USB-OTG for portable use and streaming directly from a computer. The player’s battery provides playback for up to 35 hours, and it can fully charge in less than an hour.
The digital audio player utilizes a low noise power supply, a pair of PCM1704U-K DAC chips, and dual operational amplifier chips for improved dynamic performance. It supports a vast array of high-resolution local file playback formats including FLAC, DSD, MP3, WAV, ALAC, and AAC, with gapless playback supported for WAV files. The R2R 2000 offers a balanced output of 500 mW per channel and supports storage up to 256GB from a separately available microSD card.
Due to the custom operating system and dual-path circuitry design, the CPU and control circuitry consumes a minuscule 10ma, meaning that 95% of the R2R-2000’s electricity is directly channeled to the audio components. This means the R2R2000 is not only efficient, but it doesn’t require a huge battery to provide long-lasting power while maintaining audiophile quality.
HiFi Mode offers the very highest audio quality but reduces playback time to up to 8 hours. For longer listening sessions, the R2R2000 offers an Eco Mode that reaches up to an astonishing 35 hours of playback while still sounding better than the competition. The R2R2000 uses a USB-C connection at 2A-5v, fully charging from empty in under 1 hour.
