I was also looking at the BTR3. Brand loyalty dictates that I wait for further details from Shanling :wink:

What's the DAC in this, and will it support balanced?

Loving that knob on the right-hand side. It looks like the digital crown on the apple watch. Hoping it's a volume knob, as the two-button approach the es100 takes can get a little annoying :)

In these devices you are limited by size and power(and also budget), so of course you can go balanced with two mediocre chips. Instead we went with superior DAC/AMP for single ended :wink:

UP2 has same concept of wheel as M0/M5s. So it works both as volume control, on/off button and as playback control with single/double/triple click.
