    Is it a dac designed for portable devices? Like 9018K2M?

    You should go with that option, they have a sound that never gets tiring.

    Yes, it comes with a module ( for IEM ). and we have nothing to tell you about the release date cause it is too early .

    any suggestion about which bluetooth device has best sound quality and stable enough for HiFi ( without any noise, pause and noticeable delay )

    Not portable, but my Oppo HA-1 desktop amp has pretty good Bluetooth with good range.

    will buy a creative E5 and test by myself.

    Range does not equal stability, though. A smartphone has a lot of radios that create interference that your Oppo doesn't have to contend with.

    Yeah, not a fair comparison. One of the reasons I really never use Bluetooth from my phone. :wink:

    Have you considered the new ESS9018AQ2M for the DAC
     
  11. JamesFiiO Contributor
     
    almost the same as ESS9018K2M, I have not idea why they release so many 9018XXX [​IMG]

    It's ok if you turn on Airplane Mode and then enable Bluetooth, but that kinda defeats all the streaming services - just a wee bit inconvenient...

    Could you please consider Texas Instrument DSD1793 ?
    The unique thing from DSD1793 is that it is partly pure PCM ladder DAC (the first significant 6 bits), so not entirely Delta-Sigma DAC like most of the modern DAC chips that convert PCM data to bitstream. Ladder DAC is known for it's natural and musical sound.
     
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your answer.
    Thought that it would be too early. Thank you anyway.
    You guys keep up the good work and my money will keep landing in your pockets :wink:
     
    The Q5 appears to match everything I'm looking for right now.
     
  15. asdfg
    But I think that there will be bound to have certain issues such as in-synchronization between the different lines...
