    Fair points, I forgot it could be used as a usb DAC.

    I guess if you've already got balanced iems and cables it'd be a pain to change them over all the time.

    I've never tried balanced (but own a cable), and am somewhat skeptical about the benefits, is there a clear improvement over unbalanced?

    It depends, I would say. A well implemented single ended output can sound as good as a balanced one. But that’s apparently quite hard to do. So balanced is often an easier way to get better channel separation and output more power to the transducer.

    For most in ears you won’t need the additional power either. So it’s really not a must have. I personally enjoy it and have a few in ears that work better with higher voltage to my ears.

    For me it’s misty convenience.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I use a questyle qp1r with Shure se846 so I guess I didn't really need any extra power.

    I think paying almost double for the ES100 just for a balanced output is not cost effective for me. I still have a Fiio E17 that I can use as a DAC.

    Dear friend,

    The BTR3 is using the CSR8675 Bluetooth chip, supporting LDAC, APTX HD, LHDC Bluetooth codec. So it would have better sound quality generally.

    You could enjoy it in the local store first when it is available.

    Best regards

    The uBTR doesn’t have a DAC chip, is that correct? It is just a headphone amplifier whereas the BTR3 is a DAC and amp?

    From FiiO's Facebook page, it says that the BTR3 has the AK4376A DAC.

    Dear friend,

    The μBTR doesn't have individual DAC chip like the BTR1 or BTR3.

    Best regards

    What will be the expected price of BTR3 in US?
     
  10. FiiO
    The MSRP in US is around $69.99, but it's subject to change slightly in other markets which would be decided by our local distributors.

    Thanks, when is it expected to be available and which retailer Amazon, bestbuy etc?
     
  12. georgelai57
    I see the BTR3 can be used as a USB DAC when connected to a computer. Does it handle DSD when connected thus?

    depended on our experience, it will take about 15 days to launch Amazon which means you may buy it on 25th, Aug.

    Not, the DAC features is decided by the CSR8645 so it can only supports 48k/16bit not matter what kind of DAC chip it includes. btw, you can buy our Q5 which supports DSD256, and aptX .
