So, when you are adjusting the volume and hear a very brief audio pause as you cross every 10 steps, this is normal and intended by design. In this section of my review, I will go over how various earphones and headphones pair up with RU6, and mention volume setting (v) and gain setting (High Gain or Low Gain). The RU6 with its full 4V swing and 213mW/32Ω of power output, is powerful and can drive a wide range of headphones with good grip and plenty of headroom. The unit offers standard accessories needed to run on the fly with any USB-C devices or PC with USB-A (via included adapter).

At the same time, technicalities are good and close enough to D/S performance but not in the same ballpark as top D/S performers like the FiiO KA3. On the other side of the spectrum, RU6 is as amazingly competent driving super sensitive stuffs like multi drivers hybrid IEMs.Again, the bass doesn’t hit very deep so it takes away some of the depth yet it works well for studio-recorded tracks and small ensembles. It’s almost impossible to follow up on all of them, but in all honesty, I don’t think that’s needed either. Cayin is using only resistors that can deliver extreme precision and remain stable during temperature changes. And since switching relays introduce an audible pop, Cayin implemented a short delay in volume adjustment as you cross every section by muting that pop.

The Cayin RU6 comes with good amplification traits and doesn't depend on the source for volume control. While based on the specs mW stats this is slightly less powerful than the W2 - but in real life scenario I found this to be quite powerful and can easily power even power hungry IEMs. Natural is the word to use again, not only to define the timbre but also for expressing the decay, the notes are born and then fade away with the perfect timing.If you think that was challenging to pack into a pocket friendly DAP or a small modular card, imagine getting it all inside of a small usb DAC/amp dongle. balanced jack of the RU6, switched on NOS mode, and was playing music out of Roon from my desktop PC. So in case you’ve used NOS mode and it was warmer/smoother than W2 would that difference changed if compared W2 with RU6 in OS mode?
