Is this MFi?

No MFi on the USB DAC, and you don't need MFi for Bluetooth since it is a common standard.

Available now? Taobao?

First batch already sold out in China, I believe the second batch comes later this month.

This is an excellent pairing - BTR5 with Smabat M1 Pro in balanced.

Also enjoying the M1 Pro, but finding them a little limited in volume output and ability to render deep bass sounds (dub). Besides that, lovely sounding buds. :ksc75smile:

Dear friend,

No. The BTR5 does not have MFI. But theoretically, if you would like to use the BTR5 as the USB DAC, you could connect the ios device with the BTR5 via the Apple Camera Connection Kit (CCK) ,with BTR5 charge option in off status.

Best regards

@FiiO is it possible for you to post here when there's a firmware update or support app update?
I am very keen to get the on board equaliser working on LDAC and USB and hoping you will release a firmware update soon which fixes these issues.
I am currently on firmware version v1.0.1 and support app version 1.0

There is nothing to fix. The device probably doesn't have the processing power to EQ high bit rate data streams like LDAC

hmm, if that's true I might return it.
They should make that clear on their product page, as at the moment they advertise it as having an equaliser, they should make it clear it doesn't work on LDAC or when using as an USB DAC.
The radsone es100 has no problem with this on LDAC, I would think the BTR5 has equal or higher processing power.
Would love an official statement from @FiiO on this though.

The Equalizer only works when streaming in the SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX-HD and HWA(48kHz or lower) codec. It does not work for the LDAC codec. And for HWA 96kHz, it's suggested to turn off EQ, otherwise there might be noise.
