All of the dongles come with great features and amongst them the W2 and the RU6 are the most powerful ones. I must say that the refinement is on par with what I get from my all time favorite the CEntrance DACport HD. Being one of the most powerful dongles on the market and boasting a unique DAC design, many question marks are raised regarding power consumption.

It's impressive how Fiio has considered the upgrade path for E7 DAC owners by integrating an iPod-style dock connector into the E9. I find the tonality very much similar to the Chord Mojo, with a warm and intimate presentation, and overall smoothness that sounds mature and inviting. The FiiO KA3 might have the technicalities edge for electronic music and such genres or be better suited for ultimate detail and clarity lovers but the RU6 with its more natural timbre and grander soundstage is the obvious choice for classical and acoustic music.Digital Filter-less, no post-processing, optimized in time domain, low phase distortion and jitter, no ringing artifact. And: 1/ no BT is not a deal breaker - how would you listen to music with the UM Mest and use BT, BT is crippling your music; 2/ the BTR5 is a good dac/amp but it is quite below the level of the UM Mest and the RU6. But at the same time, you get a bird’s-eye view of all the settings at once on its 4-line display without a need to go to the next page. The three physical buttons that are located to the one side of the chassis are of good quality and offer tactile feedback. The sound performance of the Cayin RU6 is stellar with a touch of a pleasant, tube-like, euphonic warmth without lacking in transparency.

The RU6 with its full 4V swing and 213mW/32Ω of power output, is powerful and can drive a wide range of headphones with good grip and plenty of headroom. While most modern dongles use a delta-sigma DAC implementation, the RU6’s R-2R relies instead on a vast array of discreet components to perform digital-to-analog conversion, in the form of 96 pieces of resistors at 48 per channel with precisely matching parameters. It has enough details and despite being very natural it doesn't come with any harsh peaks in the treble region. I spent a short period of time going through Oversampling mode and No-Oversampling mode and decided to just stick with the NOS mode for my music listening, as this provided the most pure form of listening to the R-2R DAC.

By maintaining the original bit-stream, RU6’s output is free from digital filtering thus the signal sounds more unaltered, being kept in perfect time sequence, minimizing phase issues and jitter. Canpur is showing that they have come to do serious battle in the space, and these CP32E are no exception! On the other side of the spectrum, RU6 is as amazingly competent driving super sensitive stuffs like multi drivers hybrid IEMs. Perhaps from critical standpoint, I find Ovidius B1, Apogee Groove and CEntrance DACport HD closer to being organic sounding, but RU6 is definitely there among these three Dongles that I loved so much. The merits of each have been a point of contention for many years and both carry their share of fans.
