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.

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
