Just want to say that I got mine today and I am delighted with it. I’ve tried a number of others including the BTR1 and the Bluewave Get - and for me this one nails it.

Decoupled volume - check
Gain spot on so no hiss with my sensitive SE535, even at very low levels - check
Buttons have correct amount of resistance and ‘clickability’ - check
Buttons rather than wheel for volume so no acidental volume changes - check
Nice form factor and good build quality - check
Sounds great - check

Haven’t been so roundly pleased with a product for ages - so kudos Fiio :)

Hopefully someone can answer this question for me... Does the BTR3 output digital audio from USB-C? I would like to use it as a BT receiver but I want to use a better DAC. And I might occasionally use it for other purposes...

The answer is no.

Take a look at the Shanling M0. It has bi-directional USB but you have to verify which sources it can use for USB output.

Thanks, I had a feeling it wasn't gonna work out. Usually they promote these features on product pages and I didn't immediately read anything about it so... I'm looking at the M5s as a proper DAP upgrade. The M0 is undoubtedly cool for the price, but it's not the best fit for a stationary set-up. Then again, neither is the BTR3. Still, it's an impressive bit of engineering.

Side note: There are so many no name BT receivers out there on the market, and all of them do the same basic thing. How hard would it be to add LDAC, and an optical out (and maybe NFC pairing) to one and not have it suck?

I don't see any with LDAC, but there are many with aptX HD. This one even has NFC: https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Adapter-Headphone/dp/B07D1JJBJR/. For a stationary setup you can also consider WiFi instead of Bluetooth. I've been happy with Chromecast Audio, which has some advantages over Bluetooth.
