HiBy OS updated to Android 9
HiBy OS is HiBy’s in-house developed rebuild of the Android system architecture, optimized for bit-perfect audio, unlike stock Android. Now updated to Android 9, supports the R6 in all desired audio I/O roles such as USB audio in / out, Bluetooth audio in / out simultaneously for unlimited flexibility.
MQA 16x unfolding
The strong processing power of the SoC allows for an unprecedented 16x unfolding of MQA audio for audio quality that even the mastering engineer couldn’t dream of.
MSEB Systemwide MSEB tuning
The MageSound Eight-Ball (MSEB) is HiBy's in-house researched sound tuning algorithm for adjusting desired audio qualities such as warmth, note thickness, vocal positioning, etc. directly instead of splitting the audio up into numbered frequencies. On the R6 it is available as a systemwide module for effecting all audio played on the device.*
*other than MQA, which MQA prohibits from modifying.
