Replaceable Audio Board
Available for demos and auditioning. in Amsterdam, Haarlem, and Utrecht.
I first listened to the new Cayin Line-up at the Munich High End in May 2019.
Both the new Cayin N6ii and Cayin N8 impressed me with different aspects and I was lucky enough to be able to preorder the Digital Audio Players.
The sound of the Cayin N6 II is detailed and neutral but also full-bodied and organic. The stunning build quality and the user-replaceable audio motherboard makes the Cayin n6ii a unique DAP.
With the customized Android 8.1 it has incredible features, like streaming services but alsoHibyLink compatibility meaning that you can control the player using your mobile phone.
Digital Audio Players files and streaming
Unlike “traditional” players the Cayin N6ii opens up all kinds of streaming services like Tidal, Qobus, and Spotify. With the preloaded Google play-store opportunities are endless.
