That is very true... Struggling:confounded:...
Just do it, if you were going to order it anyway, what difference does it make where you buy it from? Besides, eBay customer service is no slouch either. I recently had to file a claim with them over an order I placed in February and for a reason I won't mention here, the product will never make it to me, and eBay refunded me the full $3,000 5 months after the order was placed.

Oh really? Cool, advice taken, thank you!

It's a beautiful little device and the glass front looks really classy. Sounds brilliant with LDAC too. :beyersmile:

Hello, then which bluetooth receiver is better? The ES100 or BTR3?
I read in other post that apparently the ES100 is better for having balanced output even if a DAC has an older model.
Is this exactly the sound that ES100 produces?

I have ordered both to compare side by side. Will definitely report here. Additionally I have LG G7 and Shanling M0. Shanling actually offers very similar functionality with bi-directional Bluetooth connectivity and LDAC.

Next 19 hours ES100 on Amazon with Prime free shipping is just 4$ more than BTR3, LOL.
I'm reminding that those are 2 seriously different class of devices that coexist only for price difference purpose.

The BTR3 compares very well to the ES100 in terms of sound, plus it has a much nicer build and feel. The only other major difference for me is the balanced out since I don't really use any of the extra features of the Earstudio app.

If you have both - comment on the buttons usability, please.

I would be also interested how well are both performing for calls.
ES100 is being praised fir very good sound quality, good to hear that BTR3 is comparable.

The size of the buttons is almost identical. The BTR3 power and multifunction buttons have a straighter edge, so they're a bit easier to feel. The volume button on the BTR3 is concave - almost flat in the middle and raised slightly at either end so it can be just as tricky to find as the ES100 volume. Since the BTR3 uses the same button for volume and forward/back it might be simpler to use without having to look at it, although I don't really have any difficulty with the ES100 buttons so long as I keep in mind whether I have SE or balanced cable plugged in.

Another key difference is that the BTR3's headphone jack is located on the bottom edge of the device and the ES100 jacks are on the top of each side. I'm not sure which location I prefer at this point.

Just received my BTR3 in the mail. Some pictures in comparison to the ES100 (which has been to date my favorite Bluetooth device ever). If you click on the last image it's a gif of both devices while on:

For a moment I thought; Where the hell did he get that Fiio M9?!
