FiiO BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC

$199.95 inc GST

The FiiO BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC has the balance befitting of a flagship.

For greater power and detailed resolution, the FiiO BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC 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 bring a purer sound with unmatched finesse and balance.

Fiio BTR5

Love it, use it with my Sony mobile phone. Lifts the quality of the music considerably. Only thing bad is the double ended USB-C cable. Took a while to figure out it is directional and connection was pretty hit and miss. Bought a 250mm one from PB Tech and the difference was night and day. Other than that, I am pleased with my purchase.

FiiO BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC

A thorough “Core” upgrade, the core of the FiiO BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC has been renewed with the ES9219C DAC chip with better decoding performance, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower power consumption. Let a new chapter in wireless sound quality begin!



View the Quick Start Guide >>



  • High Performance DAC ES9219C*2
  • Qualcomm CSR CSR8675
  • XMOS XUF208
  • Hi-Res Audio
  • MQA Support for master-quality sound
  • FPGA clock management, dual independant crystal socillators
  • 2 microphones with cVc 8.0 noise cancellation
  • Bluetooth 5.0 with full format support
  • USB DAC supporting up to 384kHz/DSD256 native
  • Double-sided 2.5D glass with OLED display
  • Intelligent control with FiiO Music app
  • One-touch NFC pairing


MQA support for master-quality sound
A new addition to the updated BTR5 2021 is support for MQA Renderer, allowing for high-resolution, master-level sound quality in reasonably sized files well-suited for your mobile device.


Change your experience starting from the connection
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’s Bluetooth version 5.0 supporting high-resolution formats such as AAC/SBC/aptX Low Latency/aptX HD/LDAC up to 96kHz, you can get a totally portable yet excellent sounding setup with your current device!


Fully equipped to tackle USB, with power to spare
Utilising 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 384kHz sampling rate and native DSD.

  • Asynchronous USB DAC
  • 384kHz support
  • DSD256 (native DSD decoding)


Audiophile-approved performance
The Qualcomm CSR8675 is a low-power Bluetooth chip with enhanced audio capabilities, such as supporting 24-bit audio processing and processing a 120 MHz DSP, allowing it to powerfully handle various Bluetooth decoding functions with ease.


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.


Independent dual crystal oscillators for accurate audio reproduction
With the addition of a dedicated FPGA, the 45.1584/49.152MHz dual crystal oscillators can more accurately reproduce audio signals under various sampling rates during Bluetooth and USB decoding.


Balance befitting of a flagship
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 bring a purer sound with unmatched finesse and balance.


Displaying its beauty for all
The one display shows all, a major feature of the BTR5 2021 is the crisp 0.49 inch 64×32 resolution OLED screen that displays pairing/connection/call status/power status/encoding format/volume. And with display, you can call up a menu that allows you to visually view and adjust the charging status, enable car mode, change filters and EQ, etc.


Keeps you going all day
With a built-in 550mAh battery, the BTR5 2021 only takes 1.5 hours to fully charge but lasts for a length of 9 hours!


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.


It’s spunky, but it remembers for you too
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.
