    Awesome review. I wonder why Fiio skipped out on the modern wireless options -- AptX HD or LDAC. I'd buy this in a heartbeat if it had either of those. I imagine it's still a great option for a lot of folks even without them.

    @ all - Thanks for your kind words and appreciation! [USER=419806]@meringo[/USER] - about higher quality Bluetooth codecs, some people asked in the main thread and here are the replies of Product Manager Demond : [URL]https://www.head-fi.org/threads/fiio-q5-flagship-dac-amp-an-dual-dac-usb-optical-coaxial-line-in-share-the-same-amp-module-with-x7.772186/page-78#post-13923467[/URL]

    Great review, man! Not a native speaker?! This a well-written piece! Though the device hanging by the pineapple crown really scared me a bit. If it falls...

    Thanks for taking the time to write a really superlative review. Oh, and you can never use that non-native speaker excuse again since you write better than most native speakers.

    [USER=428934]@audiophilefan[/USER] Thanks man! The pineapple crown shots look more "dangerous" because I angled the camera :) In fact the Q5 was very well secured between the stiff leaves. I wouldn't have put it into danger :)) [USER=51833]@AudioBear[/USER] Thanks, I appreciate :)
