What options are there better than the FiiO BTR5 - I am looking for a small form factor with bluetooth capabilities - I've heard great stuff about the LP W2. According to Cayin, while they have realized a growing demand for high end usb dac dongles, they were not satisfied with off-the-shelf DAC solutions for dongle application and were not in a rush with their own dongle. I’m sure most are aware of the R-2R DAC movement but for those that aren’t, these DACs differ entirely to those widely adopted on the market such as AKM and ESS, commonly dubbed Sigma-Delta DACs. Thanks to the Cayin RU6, it is the first time that the user can experience the analogue like sound characteristics of the well designed R-2R technology from a USB powered DAC dongle.

The soundstage is not as extended and wide with the same laser sharp positioning of the FiiO KA3 but it has far better holography, a more dimensional shape and it is further convincing in communicating the ambience of the recording venue. The CP32E are fairly sensitive as far as driveability goes, but still have black background with good sources to my ears.This will get rid of the digital filters in OS mode and maintain the signal in perfect time sequence. The tragic AKM factory fire has left a gaping hole in the audiophile community with few contemporary options for lovers of a smooth, analogue sound.

To achieve 24bit decoding, we need 48 pieces of resistors (23 x R and 25 x 2R), and that’s good for one channel. Cayin's RU6 is a safe bet for a high-end DAC/Amp dongle with all the flexibility DAC/Amp dongles bring, an excellent foray into R-2R technology as well as into genuinely portable Hi-Fi — without breaking the bank. This – according to Cayin – will enhance the resolution, reduce noise and improve anti-aliasing of the digital signal.At the top of the device there are the two headphone outputs and at the bottom lies the USB type C socket. The basic idea of the R-2R ladder is a matched pair of resistors, the first is “R” and the other is “2R'' which has twice the value of R. U18t does present you with a more forward and more revealing tonality, but in pair up with RU6 it sounds less harsh and a lot less fatigue in comparison to some other sources. The sound performance of the Cayin RU6 is stellar with a touch of a pleasant, tube-like, euphonic warmth without lacking in transparency.

In addition, Cayin developed a proprietary, high-precision resistor network for volume control, which further enhance the performance within the output stream. steps volume control through 9 segments of resistors and switching relays, meet all the RU6 requirements and transparent to maintain the natural sound signature of R-2R DAC.In a market already flooded with delta-sigma USB dongles that sound more or less the same, the RU6 with its natural timbre and organic character is a welcomed addition. Safeguard signal integrity makes sure the noise from the reference clock and DSP will not bleed intro amplification circuit.
