FiiO BTR5 Portable Hi-Fi Bluetooth DAC/Amp
Boasting over twice the output power of the BTR3K as well as a beefier battery and clock, the FiiO BTR5 is a bluetooth DAC/amp to be reckoned with.
Portable is an Understatement
The BTR5 is small. Like, just barely win a height contest to a golf tee small. Share a weight class with a toothbrush small. At 2.8” on its longest side and weighing just over an ounce, the BTR5 can share a pocket with your phone, and you might not even notice it.
The Double DAC
Don’t let its humble dimensions fool you; the BTR5 packs a punch. Its two ESS SABRE ES9218P digital-to-analog converters (DACs) output 220mW balanced power against a jet-black sonic background: -122dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio).
The BTR5’s DACs and amps are paired for left and right channels, meaning greater separation and purer sound piped to your balanced headphones.
State-of-the Art Bluetooth 5.0
Gone are the days of lousy bluetooth downsampling. Boasting Qualcomm’s flagship Bluetooth 5.0 chip, the CSR 8675, the BTR3K supports 24-bit transmission of lossless codecs: AAC, SBC, aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD, and LDAC. So ditch the wires but keep the quality.
Independent Dual Crystal Oscillators
If you’re going to decode massive 24-bit lossless codecs, you better have a plan for reproducing them accurately. Fortunately, the BTR5 includes dual crystal oscillators. These 45.1584/49.152 crystals eliminate jitter for a super stable sonic experience.
One Button to Rule Them All
An easy-to-reach multi-function button lets you execute an array of tasks from pairing and playing to pausing and accepting a call.
