    No worries, Demond. I completely understand it's a difficult process to make such an innovatove dac and I really appreciate the time Fiio has and is putting into it to make it a complete product from day one. Too many devices are shoved into our pockets for a bunch of money and have all kinds of issues that are unnacceptable. The Q5 will be an awesome high quality product from day one, and that's what we truly want.

    thanks for the detailed explanation.

    if you could further explain though, what would be the issue of not starting with bluetooth 4.2 instead of 4.1?, especially given the fact that the BTR1 has 4.2.
  3. demond
    BTR1 is a version of ROM, Q5 is a version of FLASH, and the software is a lot more complicated. The engineer will start from his most familiar version 4.1.

    Is there any possibility to add LDAC (more important) and aptX HD?
  5. demond
    Unless the Bluetooth chip is changed to CSR8675. But it's very difficult and it takes a long time. Otherwise, it can't be supported.
  6. fgfgfg0923
    It is very important for Hi-Fi wireless DAC and many people want it from Fiio as well as from Centrance, I guess this must be implemented at least in Q5mkII.
    Android 8 already contains LDAC natively...
  7. demond
    Q5 is a comprehensive performance decoder product, not a product with Bluetooth as the main selling point. If you are only using Bluetooth, you can pay attention to our new product, BTR3, and support LDAC\APTX HD. Will be listed in June 2018.

    Or rather look at the £329 pre order price at advancedmp3players.
    By today's exchange rate that will be 370€.
    But since advancedmp3players are having a 10% off on all FiiO gear until 24/12, the current pre order price would be £296 or 333€.

    The discount at AMP3 is now 15% on all products from 26th December 2017 until 5th January 2018, using discount code:-
    Voucher code: BOXING15

    I have just purchased the FiiO F9 Pro at the discounted price and the Quidco cashback (currently 4.5%) also tracked OK.

    The F9 Pro was delivered yesterday.

    I'm buying this. Although my Axon 7 needs to be fixed first.
