Does this support line-out or is it explicitly amped?
LDAC means I can connect this to Sony A25 Walkman wirelessly for better sound instead of using Bluetooth wireless option?
You wonderful people make such wonderful accessories but why always ignore adding a little FM radio chip? There are millions of users who tune into local FMs still. Only your M7 offers this option. Could've been great, if you had added FM fuctionality to BTR3 the way some early Sonly BT stereo receivers did.
Great work, though. A big fan.
Same question, looks really really enticing & I never had any issues with fiio products.
The Fiio BTR3 is a Bluetooth 4.2 LDAC compatible receiver. Your A25 built in transmitter is Bluetooth 3.0 with LDAC output. So yes....you will get superior LDAC Bluetooth sound when using Bluetooth. In the A25 Bluetooth Quality Settings choose "Prioritize Sound Quality"....your BTR 3 should show a Green readout to confirm LDAC hookup.
RE: Does this work as a Line Out or is it Explicitly Amplified:...... It works perfectly as a line out...but there is no explicit separate jack or separate menu settings for that. Note that ALL LIne outs are amplified (normally to between 1 and 2 volts).
The BTR3 has fully compatible amplification both in output level and ohm rating (usually 16 ohms for line level) ...but the actual voltage output will depend on both the volume level set by the transmitter and the volume level set on the BTR3 (which are separate/independent). The BTR3 remembers its last volume setting when you turn it on...SO...if you max your Bluetooth sources volume..and then set the BTR3 for the correct compatible setting by ear...it should remain right whenever you use it.
Does the BTR3 support multi-pairing with a phone? It’d be cool if I’m listening to music on one device and if I get a call, the phone takes priority.
Edit to add: if there is multi-pairing support in that scenario (DAP for music, phone for calls), and I accept or reject the incoming call, does the BTR3 automatically revert to the DAP?
I haven't tried with calls, but had both my android devices connect to the BTR3 at the same time, podcast listening from one and notifications playing from the other phone, both at the same time, so i'd wager calls would work as well.
Will the BTR3 perform well used as a source for my car? Would I just turn the volume all the way up to get best performance in that scenario? Also, anyone know if it outputs at least 1vrms cleanly? Trying to decide if it would work for me. Thx
When used as a USB DAC on a Windows PC, can the microphone also be used for the PC?
After updating to newest firmware (0912) my btr3 sometimes skips and stops playing for 5 sec around once every minute. This is with the phone (OG Pixel XL) on top of each other. With the phone connected with USB it skips maybe every 10 seconds. Seems fine connected with PC. Had no problems with original firmware.
edit. This was yesterday right after updating. Listening now I do not experience any problems, might have been an isolated issue..
Anyway this device is just awesome. Just found out you can connect two devices at once, so now I have my pc and phone connected. If I play sound from my pc it will automatically switch to that device, and if I stop playing from the pc and start from my phone it will switch back.
For those that do not know, LDAC for Linux: https://github.com/EHfive/pulseaudio-modules-bt
Currently, when the BTR3 is used as a USB DAC on the Windows PC, the microphone of the BTR3 can not be used.
"currently"? Does that mean it might be possible to be implemented in the future? Or will the device need to have a driver installation (so it won't be plug and play like it is now) for that to be available?
Anyone using one of these clipped to full size headphones? Would it work like that?
Yes it would - but you’d want to make sure they were easy to drive.
Susvaras be okay?
Seriously though, I can’t imagine being in a situation where I wanted to listen to big full size cans and wasn’t able to at least use a portable amp. This would be for B&O H6s.
