    I was hoping for hardware volume control. I'm so disappointed.

    The Hi-Fi + Hi-Res Audiophiles' Bluetooth Headphone Adapter Thread - [17.Oct.21] iFi GO Blu impression added

    @FiiO Willson also in the Btr15 thread from a post yesterday by @FiiO I've seen that strangely the Btr7 is slightly less powerful at 320mW vs 340mW for the Btr15.

    The Hi-Fi + Hi-Res Audiophiles' Bluetooth Headphone Adapter Thread - [17.Oct.21] iFi GO Blu impression added

    @ClieOS any thoughts about the Muse Hifi M4. I don't really need another bluetooth adapter (after the Btr3k, Btr5, Up5, Btr7 and an incoming GoBlu) but the new gear itch is slowly coming back. I was tempted by the Btr15 but the overall performance seems too close to the Btr7.

    The Hi-Fi + Hi-Res Audiophiles' Bluetooth Headphone Adapter Thread - [17.Oct.21] iFi GO Blu impression added

    After starting with the BTR3k, BTR5, UP5 and lastly BTR7 (ordered the Go Blu not received yet) I just got my hand on my first dongle dac, namely the Truthear Shio. Color me impressed. Really great sounding and powerful device. Being quite small and light its very useable (given not the same use...

    Shanling UP5 - Our new flagship portable Bluetooth DAC/AMP

    @gc335 The issue with the screen not turning back on has been repeating. What i tried is connect to the UP5 with the app and change the screen off timer to 10s. Currently this has fixed the issue.

    [KA3/KA13] FIIO X JADEAUDIO USB DAC DONGLE

    @FiiO why is there a toggle for desktop mode? Is this due to battery drainage if left on? Also would a usb cable with pass-through charging help with desktop mode?

    Shanling UP5 - Our new flagship portable Bluetooth DAC/AMP

    Just when I thought things couldn't get worst - found out a few minutes back that the screen of my UP5 wouldn't turn on. I was listening with my iPhone connected the UP5 over usb (just got a cable today). Turned the unit off and on again but unfortunately the screen wouldn't turn on. The UP5...

    Shanling UP5 - Our new flagship portable Bluetooth DAC/AMP

    @YanaMJ you're right. I feel kinda let down by Shanling with them not releasing any fw update in long long while. It was my first Shanling gear and frankly I have no confidence in the company.

    Shanling UP5 - Our new flagship portable Bluetooth DAC/AMP

    Maybe there is a batch of UP5 with the bug that lowers paired device's volume on bluetooth. Mine definitely has lower volume on bluetooth with either iOS or android devices.

    Shanling UP5 - Our new flagship portable Bluetooth DAC/AMP

    Same here. This issue has been bugging me since I got my UP5 more than one year back. What I discovered is that when paired to my android phone the UP5 reduces the phone volume to around 75% of max volume. One workaround i've found is to enable bluetooth absolute volume in developer options -...

    [FiiO Q5s Type C ‖ Q5s] Bluetooth DSD-capable Amplifier,AK4493x2,768k/32bit

    @FiiO Dear Friend Big thanks for your support. Just as a reminder in my original post i mentioned that my Q5s has lost all bluetooth functionality and also the front indicator light no longer turns on (even in usb dac mode - to indicate bit rate). When I turn on the unit the bluetooth...

    @FiiO got my Q5s from the official reseller in my country 3 years back. I have already emailed Fiio Support and they have asked me to check my bluetooth version by connecting the Q5s over usb to a computer - will do same when I get back home today. I was hoping there would be some kind of easy...

    [FiiO Q5s Type C ‖ Q5s] Bluetooth DSD-capable Amplifier,AK4493x2,768k/32bit

    @FiiO sometime last week i turned on my beloved Q5s to use over bluetooth on LDAC when the sound started stuttering (like its sometimes does). Since the stuttering did not stop I reset the Q5s and after that it functioned normally and I enjoyed some late night music. Unfortunately the next day...

    iBasso DX170 You want your Music? It is right here. *** New Firmware: 1.05 ***

    I am very close to ordering the DX170. I intend to use it only with Apple Music. Do you guys have an idea if I can install an apk of Apple Music and register my account without Google Play Services installed? I figured that maybe without GPS and ApkPure the device will have more resources...

    FiiO BTR3-The World' First Bluetooth Headphone Amplifier, SBC/AAC/aptX/aptX LL/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA (LHDC)

    @SlimCharles hello there. Same happened to mine. In my case it was the battery which swelled and popped off the back cover. I would advise you to check battery too. If the back cover doesn't sit flush it certainly the battery turning bad. Has the battery life of your BTR3K significantly...

    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    Unfortunately not Apple Music which is available in my country and imho the best music streaming service. Also the current M6 is way too slow with it's very limited RAM capacity.

    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    Would be a great source for my Fiio Q5s, BTR7 and BTR5 instead of my current Fiio M6 - especially if it would fully support streaming services.

    @ClieOS truly the good old days. Was an avid reader of your blog Inearmatters. I'm very grateful to you for rekindling my interest in earbuds especially the Blox E2c which was a great match with the Fiio E5 and its bass boost. At the time i bought almost every new Fiio gears since they so...

    @FiiO Dear friend, long time Fiio fan here (since the E3 amp at around 2009 - who remembers that!). Just want to ask if you no longer have a distributor in Mauritius (an island in the Indian Ocean)? There is a store named One.O.One Multimedia which was your official stockist since 2017...
