FIIO Q5S PORTABLE DAC & AMP REVIEW — NOT ONLY BLUETOOTH CODECS
One of the bonuses of the company that occupies the leading positions on the market is the ability to develop devices that cannot be fulfilled by their smaller competitors due to their low margin. So it’s not unusual that FiiO have released DAC with Bluetooth support — Q5. As you understand, today we review the renewed Q5s version.
Upon the whole the updated version is a good compilation of company’s latest work and experience. They use flagship CSR8675 from Qualcomm as a wireless interface that provides Bluetooth 5.0 support together with many other codecs. The very popular XU208 is responsible for USB, and this means that we get all possible format support and resolutions for DAC. FiiO have chosen AK4993EQ as DACs and there are two of them. The amps are detachable and there is AM3E by default, that is, actually, a reworked variant of AM3 that has received two balanced outputs — here we get both 2.5mm and Pentaconn. All schemes in terms of power and low jitter have been ready, so the only thing has been just to release the gadget.
It has been finally released and Q5s has appeared in stores with recommended price around 350 USD.
