Thanks for the clarification. Well, given the price tag and the fact that the USB feature is sort of a "bonus" you get on top of the Bluetooth functionality, it's still a nice feature. I'm assuming the BTR3 will drive sensitive IEMs especially well? So even at CD-level 16 bit / 44.1 or 48 kHz you'll have a much better output for your typical PC or notebook onboard sound. An additional USB chip with support for much improved performance would mean higher cost, less room for a battery, or a bigger device. I prefer it like this. And I'm sure that sooner or later we'll see a device like the Q5 with Bluetooth support on the same level as the BTR3, right?
