A Thorough Core Upgrade with MQA Support
A new addition to the updated BTR5 2021, there is support for MQA Renderer, allowing for high-resolution, master-level sound quality in reasonably sized files well-suited for your mobile device.
Outstanding Bluetooth and USB Performance
Your Bluetooth device can be transformed into a part of a Hi-Res wireless setup by simply connecting it to the BTR5 2021. With the help of the BTR5 2021 and Bluetooth version 5.0, which supports high-resolution formats such as AAC/SBC/aptX/aptX Low Latency/aptX HD/LDAC up to 96kHz, you can get a totally portable yet excellent-sounding setup with your current device. The Qualcomm CSR8675 is a low-power Bluetooth chip with enhanced audio capabilities such 24-bit audio processing and 120 MHz DSP, allowing it to powerfully handle various Bluetooth decoding functions with ease. Utilizing an XMOS XUF208 control chip, the BTR5 2021 is capable of asynchronous audio decoding under USB Audio Class 2.0. As a USB DAC, the BTR5 2021 can decode up to a 384 kHz sampling rate and in native DSD.
FPGA Precision Clock Management
An FPGA is responsible for the transmission and reception of Bluetooth and USB digital audio signals as well as clock management. In the BTR5 2021, after the Bluetooth signal is processed through the FPGA, jitter is greatly reduced and signal stability is improved, completely solving the problem of different clock rates that exist between the different parts of the audio architecture. With the addition of a dedicated FPGA, the 45.1584/49.152 MHz dual crystal oscillators can more accurately reproduce audio signals under various sampling rates during Bluetooth and USB decoding.
Balanced and Single-Ended Outputs
For greater power and detailed resolution, the BTR5 2021 features both balanced and single-ended outputs. In its balanced-audio architecture, each channel is driven separately with its own DAC and amplifier, allowing the BTR5 2021 to produce a purer sound with unmatched finesse and balance. In order to ensure the BTR5 2021 operates normally, when both 3.5mm and 2.5mm outputs both have plugs inserted, only the 3.5mm port will output sound.
OLED Screen and Intuitive Controls
A major feature of the BTR5 2021 is the crisp 0.49-inch 64x32 resolution OLED screen that displays pairing / connection / call status / power status / encoding format / volume data. And with the display, you can call up a menu that allows you to visually view and adjust the charging status, enable car mode, and change filters and EQ settings, etc.
When you connect the BTR5 2021 to your phone, the phone's volume and the BTR5 2021's volume can be adjusted separately, allowing you to better fine-tune the volume to your needs. The BTR5 2021 also conveniently remembers your desired volume.
When a USB connection is detected the BTR5 2021, it will automatically prompt you to turn on USB Audio Adapter mode, which turns off charging to the BTR5 2021, and allows you to use it as an audio dongle for your phone or other devices.
When connected to a phone and acting as a USB DAC, the BTR5 2021 can be configured to purposefully source power from the phone. The dedicated in-vehicle mode allows the BTR5 2021 to automatically turn on and off with the car, further enhancing your convenience.
Scientifically precise, yet intuitive settings allow you to tune the BTR5 2021 to suit any purpose you have in mind, such as channel balancing, filtering with two audio, and EQing with the 10-band equalizer. Of special note is the ability to adjust odd- and even-order harmonic distortion, allowing you to make the music warmer or colder to reveal every side of music yet to be heard.
Download the FiiO Music App (or FiiO Control APP) to remotely control the BTR5 2021, making for a flagship-grade experience.
2 Microphones with cVc 8.0 Noise Cancellation
While the BTR5 2021 has a built-in omnidirectional high-sensitivity microphone, you can use an external microphone in a 3.5mm CTIA headset. When using either set of microphones, you can benefit from cVc 8.0 noise-cancellation technology, which intelligently adjusts microphone gain and effectively suppresses background noise for crystal-clear calls.
