I'm looking to buy a good Blootooth DAC/AMP but have no good sauce for reviews.

I'm interested in

FiiO BTR3K,

FiiO BTR5,

QUDELIX-5k

or any other device that may not even know of.

But I don't really know which one to get.

Thanks for the Help

There are no good reviews as devices like that, cant be really good.

They will have to content with the limitations Bluetooth gives. Thus will never be top-notch quality.

 

I would highly recommend looking into wired DAC's.

A BT-dac is kinda useless. Its will only be as good as the best codec that is supported by both devices. (which isnt much, even AptX is meh).

 

Getting a good BT headphones or in-ears is a smarter move if wireless is important.

If you just want to use headphones/in-ears you already have, go wired. 😉

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

+1. Or atleast, get a portable android DAP that can function as a DAC, that can help you with your portable above phone quality audio fix.

These statements kinda contradict...

You cant say the audio will be bad just because of one component in the audio stack. If the source or driver is bad, would bluetooth transmission still be the point of concern?

 

OP is probably looking at LDAC judging by the devices listed.

 

All but the most expensive wireless headphones dont support LDAC. Most stop at AAC or regular aptx. And then the user will have to live with the sound signature wether its good or not, wether he/she likes it or not.

 

With a bluetooth adapter, much more data can be sent through LDAC, and paired with the headphone of choice.

 

Personally I use a BTA30 to transmit all sound output of my PC over LDAC, to an ES100 or BTR5 which I can attach to my X2HR. Works well with Android too, as there is LDAC support. I could hook it up wired to the desk amp as backup of course.

 

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I was more speaking in terms of that the BT-dac would be the weakest link.
And that the weakness of it is very great.

 

If you play FLAC on your BT-DAC thats very useless, as it changes to the BT codec essentially making it a lossy sound.

Effectively ruining the sound.

 

But thats just what i think of it.

 

 

As for the codec choice, it matters a lot if the device(s) you play it on also support it. And correctly.
