There's a lot of love for the bit ..I love my dx160 but it still had a flaw (Bluetooth) ...

The oppy1 had no flaws (for me) and this has been rare , I have owned nearly every make or brand at some point .. cayin ,fiio and ibasso all have had flaws on most of my purchases ....the bit oppy1 was standout.

Well, the more features an item has the higher the chances a flaw will pop up.

I use my DX160 on mango mode 90% of the time and its pretty much flawless. Maybe you can try it sometime for a no frills Opus 1 experience, and it also sounds better as a bonus.

This is very true....but still no excuse for the awful Bluetooth on the dx160 or the appalling UI that was on the x7 that took over a year to get close to right, the opus1 had no issues really and even in the beginning they were excellent with firmware.
I love my 160 as you know but I will never overlook anything that has a flaw and the Bluetooth on the 160 is truly awful.... awesome sound though and my daily

Yeah if you paid for a feature it'd better work.

I use BT DAC of the DX160 a fair amount and it works great. Sure there is some delay initially but it syncs up after you pause and play the video/song. I've tried BT to my Sony WF1000XM3 and it works flawlessly as well. The range is about half of what i get from my phone but thats still 3 metres which is fine.

Which version of the DX160 do you have again? The 2019 or 2020 version? A variety of issues were resolved/improved upon with the 2020 version including bluetooth

I have had both and Bluetooth was awful on both , I still have the 2020 version ...I also have reccomended it to a few and all have said there Bluetooth was awful, this again was 2019 and 2020 versions ....if it didn't sound so good for the price it would have gone back for sure ... but it does and I can wholeheartedly recommend on audio alone

What kind of issues do you have with the Bluetooth? Poor pairing, frequent disconnections, choppy signal?
