SHDC Bluetooth, the Golden Goose?
Bluetooth is wireless and works similarly to Wi-Fi but at much lower power. Convenient, but until now, ½t just didn’t have the bandwidth to transmit High Res audio. Low quality mp3 files, sure but nothing close to 24bit/96kHz. That has all changed. The development of the SHDC Bluetooth protocol means that digital audio transmission can take place at a rate where the distortion introduced is on the level of two orders of magnitude lower than was ever previously capable. This puts SHDC in the range of 0.00005% distortion.
With this development, sonic output is far superior to any previous option and with the lower power nature of the transmission there is no electrical interference, rendering the audio ever more true to how it should be. With SHDC Bluetooth, transmission is finally on the order of wired audiophile components.
SHDC Bluetooth: As good as a wired connection
By using SHDC Bluetooth, you can now utilize your mobile phone to provide the data connectivity at which it excels, extracting the highest possible level of audio. By streaming SHDC Bluetooth from a phone to a DAC, distortion is as low as 0.0005% for the transmission of High Res, 24 bit/96kHz audio.
The HIFIMAN custom-designed, single process embedded operating system handles one task at a time; one singular purpose to ensure that the jitter is as low as possible. Android and other multi-process systems are forced to multitask, creating unwanted jitter to high quality audio. Audiophile-quality circuitry, ultra-low distortion analogue filters, discrete left and right channel filtering of each opamp and a buffer all combine to ensure sonic purity.
Dual 3.5 and 4.4mm Balanced Output
The R2R2000 Red offers a balanced output of 500mW per channel. That is half a watt of musical power, the same as a small desktop amplifier.
Compact Form Factor
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 R2R2000 Red’s electricity is directly channeled to the audio file circuitry. This means the R2R2000 Red is not only efficient but doesn’t require a huge battery to provide long lasting battery life while maintaining audiophile quality.
Up to 35 Hours Playback Time
Hi-Fi Mode offers the very highest audio quality but reduces playback time to up to 8 hours. For longer listening sessions, the R2R2000 Red offers an Eco Mode that reaches up to an astonishing 35 hours of playback while still sounding better than the competition.
The R2R2000 Red with its USB-C connection can charge at 2A-5V meaning it will go from empty to full in under 1 hour.
