Updates in Fiio BTR5 compared to BTR3 

1. Update from Bluetooth 4.2 to Bluetooth 5.0 

BTR5 with BlueTooth 5.0 offers a more stable connection at twice speed and four times of range of Bluetooth 4.2. This increase in range, plus the ability to transmit audio to two devices, means that people could send audio to multiple rooms in a house, create a stereo effect in one space, or share audio between two sets of headphones. 

2. Update battery capacity from 300mAh to 500mAh

The 300 mAh battery in the BTR3 takes only 1.5 hours to fully charge but the 500mAh battery in BTR5 takes 2 hours using quick charging.  

3. Update DAC chip from AK4376A to Dual ES9218

Comparing with AK4376A DAC in the BTR3,  Dual DAC ES9218  in  BTR5  offers high resolution, clear and powerful output with low output impedance, while being very power efficient. This change not only has the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) increased, but distortion has also been reduced for greatly improved sound quality. 

4.  Fiio BTR5 Weighs a little more

BTR5 size is 72*32*11.3  while BTR3 size is 58*25*10.4mm. Because of increased battery capacity, the weight of BTR5 is increased to 43.7g from 25g but it is still very convenient to take out.

Alta fedeltà in bluetooth

E' un apparecchio molto comodo per telefonate e altro. Ma soprattutto ha una qualità audio molto elevata. Nulla a che vedere con BTR3 che pure è molto versatile e migliore dei suoi predecessori. Qui la differenza la fa uno stadio di amplificazione top level e la possibilità di streaming bluethooth in LDAC. LDAC è supportato dal DAP Fiio M11 per esempio ma anche dagli smartphone samsung galaxy ultima generazione. Con BTR5 si può godere in totale mobilità di IEM top level con una qualità di sorgente appena un po' sotto il collegamento diretto ad un buon DAP.

    Salve. Posseggo LG V30 che ha lo stesso chip del Fiio BTR5 (ES9218P). Mi chiedo se ha senso comprarlo per sentire la musica tramite cuffie tradizionali via bluetooth (con codec LDAC) o mi conviene puntare a cuffie bluetooth con codec LDAC direttamente ? La soluzione wireless è solamente per i mesi caldi altrimenti vado diretto con il cavo.

      Buongiorno, ci sono diversi motivi per pensare al BTR5. Esso installa due chip DAC ES9218, all\'interno di un circuito completamente dedicato all\'audio e bilanciato. Inoltre il suono non è determinato solamente dal chip DAC, ma da un insieme di altri fattori. Uno di questi è l\'amplificazione per cuffie interna al BTR5, di alta qualità. Inoltre, pesa l\'assenza di interferenze che sono presenti quando i circuiti audio sono all\'interno dello smartphone. In sintesi, se i file o il flusso streaming che vengono riprodotti non è eccessivamente compresso, ed in funzione delle cuffie utilizzate che dovrebbero essere di buona qualità ( senza, quindi, costituire un "collo di bottiglia" ai fini del risultato finale), il BTR5 dovrebbe apportare un sensibile miglioramento.
