      FiiO BTR5-384K/32Bit Native DSD256 Hi-Res CSR8675 Bluetooth5.0 Receiver/USB DAC/DSD Headphone Amp with LDAC, aptX HD, aptX, AAC (3.5mm Unbalanced&2.5mm Balanced Output, Black)

      it does a whole bunch of shit people dont care about.

      Saying that I have their Q1 dac as an external soundcard.

      Makes headphones sound better and louder, even if your headphones are meant to be self driving. Also useful for connecting things to speakers and stuff.

    I love my BTR5. It makes my HD6XXs portable so I can annoy my family as I walk around the house lookin super cool, listenin to high quality audio.

    • Can this be used to play Tidal playlist?

      • You use your phone via Bluetooth to the unit so you can play whatever you like

  • Can this DAC render MQA signals natively or thru firmware upgrade? Also is this equal or better than the EarStudio ES100?

    • Lots of comparison vids and threads. I'd sum up to say qudelix 5k for $200 or es100 for $100ish is the go.

      I own both.

      Es100 is for gym band public transport.
      Qudelix is for home, sometimes away from home, rarely.

      I don't own the btr5 I think because there's not as good EQ.

      • Which one has more power? Thinking of driving big boy 600ohm hps

        • Pretty sure qudelix 5k would have most power. But I'm not sure.

          I know es100 can double power using balanced cables.

          But I'm pretty sure most threads talk about 300ohm earphones being ok (depending on sensitivity) but I believe 600ohm is just too much for these small mobile devices.

    There sure is a lot of acronyms to learn if you want to become an audiophile.

    • A lot of these type of devices are usually just plug and play. Even entry level gear such as this is a huge upgrade from your standard headphone output or most stuff you find at JB. I'm running a Fiio E18 (plug and play) with my Beyerdynamic DT990 headphones which sounds great while I'm still working from home.

  • Well from the stellar reviews that I have read so far, I grabbed it and methinks would pair nicely with my phone (Z Fold 2), DAP (AK Junior) and headunit (Honda HR-V) . Thanks OP.

    I have one and use it a lot. It can connect to my pc via usb c so I can use it as a dac amp for games with my headphones. I also connect it via bluetooth to my phone when riding/mowing/motorcycling so my headphones are not physically connected to the phone, which is its main use case.

    It does ldac which is one of the best bluetooth formats, a noticable improvement over aptx for me.

    Overall I am happy with it.

    • Yep. LDAC is the best bluetooth hi-res streaming audio and I that's a one-up for Sony.

      Anywayz, anyone here has any ideas on how to use the balanced output? Do I just need to buy an adapter to fit my 3.5mm jack headphones or will I need a compatible headphones to go with it? Thanks.

      • Balanced output is only for headphones that require it. Each side will have it’s own cable input. So you will know if you need it.

  • ordered one …gotta keep my audio addiction going
