Cayin N5iiS is a an update to N5ii, a popular DAP in the $500 range.
Now with a higher pixel LCD screen, text and cover art look sharper. And with 2GB of RAM the UI is smoother.
First thing you’ll notice when holding the device is it’s weight compared to the previous model. It’s heavier as the body is not stainless steel. The finish is smooth compared to the rough feel of the N5ii.
Most important to the update is its sound. You get lower floor noise (still not as quiet as A&K daps when using very sensitive earphones) and sound overall has been improved.
Come in and demo the unit.
