Combining a transmitter, decoder, amp, preamp, and streaming media player in one, the R7 All-in-One Desktop Hi-Fi Streaming Player & Amplifier from FiiO in white lets beginners and audiophiles alike create their own desktop Hi-Fi system. With a plethora of front and rear inputs, the R7 is the centerpiece of your modular system. Add headphones, active speakers, music storage, and even a DC power supply. Sized like a bookshelf speaker, the R7 can be managed in a few ways, including a built-in 5" HD portrait touchscreen running Android 10 OS. However you get your music into or through the R7, an array of high-end internal components will work to make sure the final output is a clean, high-fidelity audio signal that's part of a robust soundstage.
A wide variety of inputs and outputs on the front and rear of the R7 allow you to use it as the centerpiece of an expanding, modular Hi-Fi system of your own design. It can support a host of audio connections, a USB-A port has host functionality for optional hard drives or interfaces, such as the KB1 keypad, and a microSD slot supports up to 2TB cards, to name a few.
Rear Connections: Two RCA (in), one optical (in and out), one coaxial (in and out), two 3-pin XLR balanced (line out), one USB-C, one USB-A, one Ethernet, and a microSD card slot.
Front Connections: One 6.35mm headphones, 4.4mm balanced headphones, and 4-pin XLR balanced headphones.
3 Ways to Control
The most obvious way of controlling the R7 and how it manages connected devices is through the built-in 5" HD portrait touchscreen. This screen provides an intuitive GUI that's based on the Android 10 OS, so you can enjoy a variety of 3rd party apps, including those from popular streaming services. A second method is using your mobile device loaded with the FiiO Music app. The third option is not available at the time of this writing, but FiiO plans to release an optional Bluetooth remote control in the future.

AC and DC Power
Built into the R7 is a 30W switching power supply that supports the use of external 12V/3A DC power supplies. The AC circuit offers filtering and purification with a large-capacity choke and dedicated high-voltage capacitors, while the DC circuit has a +/-12V high-voltage design. It also offers the following features:
Twelve 470uF tantalum capacitors to regulate and purify power and reduce noise.
A metal cover locks the transformer to the main power supply board to reduce jitter and stabilize sound.
Each stage of the audio circuit employs ultra-low-noise LDOs for voltage regulation and stable, clean power.
