Are the mail services shutting down in your region?

Here in California we are also asked to stay inside and only go out occasionally for essentials - food, medicine, etc., but I am continuing to get mail and package deliveries from the US Postal Service and Fedex - probably UPS too but I don't have any packages in route from them right now.

Only essential services are open, and at least in our area that includes Central Computers - a local retailer - so we can get "work from home" essentials. I haven't needed to check for any other such "essential" retailers, but there are still a number of online services open around the world to deliver products to our mailboxes or front door delivery.

Amazon US has instituted a moratorium on restocking non-essentials in their regional warehouses, so those non-essentials might disappear as Amazon warehouses run out of current inventory. I don't think BTR5's are considered essential products, so they might not get restocked.

Hopefully you can figure out a way to get a BTR5 sooner :)
i live in South Africa - all these items are imported and our postal service is not the most efficient in the world - importing anything now is taking a chance that you will probably never receive it - besides not in a huge rush - still have enough portable gear to use even though i just sold my BTR3 - i think i can manage to wait a month or two and get a BTR5 when the infrastructure for imports is back on its feet here in South Africa :thumbsup:

The price of the BTR5 has been dropping from the highest I've seen, $189 - well besides those crazy $800+sellers in the midst of the shipping stoppage, to $169, $139, and now Amazon has sellers with the BTR5 for $109 (MSRP?), $119, $129, so the price will hopefully normalize around the original MSRP.

I wouldn't be surprised if FiiO had a BTR5K come out in 6-8 months with the 3.5mm tied to both AMP's like the BTR3K(?), at least I am hoping they do

Love the sub-$100 IEM's and $100-$150 portable power house DAC/AMP's, and I hope they keep evolving to offer more features. I'd at least like a BT transmitter feature as the BTR5/3 would be nice to offer a completely wireless option as more and more IEM's grow BT receivers of their own.

Take care there in South Africa, I hope you are enjoying your quiet time as much as I am. :)

Well that's an unexpected power output through the balanced port, I was expecting it to be around 50mW, but at 78mW this has got me interested :L3000:

ciao a tutti,questo nuovo ampli è solo per cuffie bluetooth, o si può abbinare anche a un fiio x5iii e ascoltare con cuffie cablate? scusate la domanda.
Hi, BTR3K is a bluetooth amp, so it can paired with X5III and you can only listened with wired headphones.

Ciao, BTR3K è un amplificatore bluetooth, quindi può essere accoppiato con X5III e puoi solo ascoltarlo con le cuffie cablate.

Can this be used as PC dac/amp too? I'd like to have a small all-in-one device for everything. Don't need it to be super high-end.
Yes it can. Both the BTR3 and BTR5 are USB and BT are DAC / Amps. And the FIIO description above specifically mentions BT and USB decoding. It also says it will have higher output power! Save your pennies.

Yeah, I'm in need of one of them but not sure which will be the best for me. Just gathering enough of info before I'll order one.

Yeah wouldn't be surprised at a BTR5k in 6 to 8 months - Fiio are launching lots of new items very regularly now

Thanks for the well wishes and I hope that you and your family stay safe in your part of the world too - our lockdown only started today - I hope that it helps in reducing the impact of the virus here

And yep using my M11 and KZ AS16 IEMs to listen to loads of music - glad that you are enjoying your quite time too :beerchug:

I'm just surprised Fiio is announcing a brand new BTR3K and saying it's already on the way to the distributors, where the BTR5 delivery is slipping more and more.

Hello,

If everything goes well, the BTR5 will be in stock again in the middle of next month.

Best regards
