just Bluetooth receiver
Hi,@Kean FiiO
Welcome to Head-Fi! :)

Maybe you can also answer to these questions that I originally posted in the FiiO Release thread?

Quick questions about Q5s:
1. Will the Q5s support in-line (cable) controls of wired headphones when connected over Bluetooth?
2. Will the Q5s implement "Phone" Bluetooth profile / ability to take phone calls with an in-line microphone? This would require that the Q5s work as a Bluetooth transmitter also.

This are two features that I miss when I use my Q5 on-the-go over Bluetooth.
Well I guess the second one is answered above - no "Phone" profile possible without BT transmitter.

@FiiO - Question about the included AM3E amp module. Is it a sonic improvement over the currently included AM3A, or is it the same amp module but with a 4.4mm connector (in addition to 2.5mm and 3.5mm)? I will probably end up with the THX based AM3D anyway, but just curious if the new AM3E is a sonic step up over the old AM3A or just more flexible connectivity.

Yes it does. And most likely also support Fiio K5 dock, which will give you balance out for your xlr stuff.

Thanks!

Still, FiiO X7 II uses the same amp modules and it has headphone in-line remote support so theoretically the 3.5mm jack in the amp module has the required connections and the in-line remote input can be linked to the physical play / pause / next buttons of X5 / X5s.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

FiiO released the amplifier module in the following order:AM3A-AM3B-AM3E, they have similar circuit and OP AMP chips, AM3E adds 2.5mm interface to AM3B
