Just some feedback on behalf of a friend who owns one but is not on the forum: when connected to two devices (in this example, MBP and P20pro), listening to music on the MBP, with the P20pro on silent mode, when a notification comes in on the P20pro, there's a small cut out of music playback with a chirp.

I picked up a µBTR to use mainly when commuting, walking or while doing some work around the house. I was previously using a Sony bluetooth receiver and compared to that, the µBTR's sound was miles better most likely thanks to the aptx support and other built in features.

I recently had a chance to test out a BTR3 for a few hours (borrowed from a friend) and while the BTR3 did sound a tiny bit better with my IEM's I don't think I can justify the extra cost of the BTR3. For the price the µBTR is a really nice piece of kit.

Hi Fiio,

Is it possible to connect my USB C DAC to Fiio µBTR and allow audio to pass through the from Fiio µBTR to my headphones / IEM instead of the 3.5mm headphone jack?

Thanks in advance!

PS, do you have any 11.11 sale coming up soon?

Nathan takes a detailed look at the µBTR. He really didn't like the FB1, but the µBTR almost checks all of his boxes. Full review now on Headfonia!

Finally, a comparison between the 3 most recent BTRs, with a nod to the µBTR for superior RF performance. Considering that FiiO’s FCC test report indicates that the BTRs after BTR1 have the same RF implementation, it speaks volumes about the reason that competent RF-enabled products don’t have metallic enclosures, if they don’t have an external antenna.

So, you guys who demanded a “premium” feel to the BTR3...you got it. Thanks. Just keep it close.

The USB C port is only for charging, AFAIK. Also, the unit is only a Bluetooth receiver, not a transmitter.

What I meant was using my phone as a source and Fiio uBTR as a receiver, but instead of passing audio through the 3.5mm jack, could it be instead be passed through USB C instead, through my USB C DAC with 3.5mm jack then to my headphones / IEM. I understand that this Bluetooth receiver has no DAC and was thinking if a USB DAC can improve its sound quality.

Dear friend,

No, the μBTR could not work as the USB DAC. The usb port is only for charging.
