HiRes porti "all inclusive"

Cayin N6ii

The Chinese manufacturer Cayin is most known for its tube amplifiers, but is now becoming more and more a specialist for HiRes portable players as well.

After the N5iiS and the N8, now comes the MK2 version of the N6. It is called N6ii, costs 1500 Euro, has a 4.2 inch touch screen, an aluminum alloy case, a knurled wheel for the volume and hardware buttons for the drive functions. The internal 64GB memory can be expanded with an SDXC card or USB memory. Inside there is an adapted Android 8.1 with full access to the Google Play Store, so that all apps of streaming services etc. can be installed. All audio applications bypass Android's forced resampling and play back at their native sampling rate. A special feature is the exchangeable audio stage with the AKM DAC chip AK4497EQ and the analog output stage. It supplies three sockets: 3.5 mm jack line out, 3.5 mm jack for headphones and 4.4 mm Pentaconn socket for balanced headphone connection. An adapter from Pentaconn to 2.5 mm balanced is included. The digital interfaces are USB and S/PDIF – both via the USB-C port and I2S via Mini-HDMI. The Porti can serve as a DAC for external sources. HiRes playback up to 384 kHz with PCM and 11.3 MHz with DSD is a matter of honor, and even via Bluetooth, thanks to the codecs LDAC and aptX HD music can be transmitted in very good quality. The N6ii is a good 2 cm thick and weighs 290 grams. Its battery should last 14 hours. Those who order the player in the Cayin online shop until 15 September 2019 will receive a 10 percent discount with the voucher code "HR-Player".
