Cayin album art

Cayin N5iiS portable hi fi player

This week we're taking a look at another portable hi-fi manufacturer: Cayin.

Cayin market their products to audiophiles. Like other devices in this market, the players have high quality DACs alongside large high-res displays from which you can choose and browse your music library. This is great, but it's very dependent on how well you have previously organised your library.

FiiO album art

FiiO M6 portable hi fi player

Let's look at another portable hi-fi manufacturer's album art support. This week we take a look at the players from FiiO, a Chinese electronics company. Like other companies covered on these pages, FiiO concentrate on the "high-end" hi-fi section of the portable music player market.

iPods these ain't...

As is common in the portable hi-fi market, the players have high quality DACs alongside large displays from which you can playlist music. So: the same old story; the music sounds great, but music library navigation is very dependent on how well you have previously organised your library.
