I got my CA IOs on Christmas Day (a surprise gift also from Headphone Bar!) and immediately wanted a good portable DAC/amp to go with them. It has been great so far, nice added convenience with the Bluetooth and drives the IEMs well to my ears!
Thanks Headphone Bar!
My experience with the BTR5 has been good. No problems using it as a BT DAC over my Windows and Android device simultaneously. I cannot use it over a wired USB-C connection on my phone without an app installed, and then it only plays music on local device storage.
Using it exclusively as a BT device is easy, would recommend it with the only caveat of difficulty connecting by USB-C to an Android device.
I am very pleased with the item. I purchased a new apple device with no headphone jack.
I purchased this to make my beloved headphones bluetooth enabled. Works like a charm!
The service from Headphone bar was perfect.
Good build quality. Lots of features with phone app. Its is able to power a pair of Focal Clears no problem. Immaculate HI-FI unit when plugged into PC or Android. IPhone dose not support lossless steaming over Bluetooth yet. It sounds close to The Dragonfly Red.
