HiBy R8 Gen II features Class A and AB dual-mode switchable amplification modes. The Class-A amp section utilises dual ADA4625-2 OPAMPs and 16 custom-developed transistors for zero crossover distortion and fast transient performance. The Class AB mode is here with three OPA1612 OPAMPs. We get a crisp, consistent performance with ultra-low distortion and high-power output in both modes. Class AB mode provides improved battery life. HiBy R8 Gen II features high-power Turbo mode. It can be enabled from the settings, and it greatly increases the output current, taking the maximum output to ±7.5V.
