We remember a time when we turned our noses up at Bluetooth audio. (Audiophiles turning their noses up at something. Imagine.) But now, with 24-bit Bluetooth transmission, that’s all ancient history, and we’re eager to check out any Bluetooth product that makes it through our door.
We’re especially excited about this one, the xDuoo XQ-100 Bluetooth Audio Receiver. With 24-bit transmission (plus upscaling for those less-than-stellar sources), balanced outputs, and dual ESS SABRE DAC chips, it’s a more-than-capable receiver that goes all in on Bluetooth.
All in? Well, nearly. Besides an HD coaxial input (with support for 24-bit/192kHz), the XQ-100’s sole input is Bluetooth. This fact alone might alienate some readers. For those others, who are rocking out daily with Apple Music Lossless, Qobuz, and TIDAL on your wireless devices, we have a feeling that you’re going to like this one.
