I do like these Bluetooth devices that can be usb dacs also but I have too many that have more features. The topping g5 while being being and double the price has blown me away in this field. Not only do all my iems sound amazing but it can also power all my big headphones including the hard to drive aeon closed x. The ldac transmission is the best I've heard and it uses the same dac chip as my smsl su8s. Now if you wanna go small the earstudio mk2 is excellent for iems and lower impedence (non planar) headphones or the btr5 for a little more power but slightly bigger. Hence why I'm passing on this. Also just got my modi multibit 2 which the topping g5 has a Line in/line out so if you don't like the built in dac you can use another which I do at My desktop! Tho I have used the line out while using the built in dac to hook into another headphone amp. It has many uses.

Compelling product, but MQA makes it a hard pass. Won’t be supporting those swindlers nor paying the extra cost associated with the “certification”. The sooner that snake oil is out of the industry, the better. Or, MQA at least needs to be miles more transparent than they currently are.

MQA isn't lossless, get a BTR5 instead.

I'm commenting more on the lossy/lossless sound quality debate, and less on the MQA royalties debate. But since you brought it up, are you more concerned about paying them, or whom they go to? I'll tell you right up front, I'm an OPPO man (which means I'm sticking with what I've got) but it seems to me we're all paying through the nose in every segment of this sport: high streaming subscription fees, high product/equipment costs, technology advancements that encourage and sometimes force constant upgrades--all of which conspire to take a shameful toll on our wallets. Audio is capitalism you can hear and feel! I'd like to think some of the money I'm spending goes to the artists that create the music I listen to (rather than the middlemen), but when I see the lifestyles of the truly successful artists, I'm less enthusiastic about that part of the game as well.

Just had a quadelix 5k for a couple of days and only have used it for it’s bluetooth functionality with unbalanced iems but am quite happy with it … you also get 3.5 unbalanced and 2.5 balanced outputs in the same unit. Is about the size of a 9v battery and comes with a clip. The buttons are a bit unintuitive though …

I could be wrong, but the Fiio BTR5 could be a better deal.

I had the UP4 briefly. The Bluetooth was really finicky with multiple devices and the clip was a joke. Otherwise it was nice. Those two uses for me unfortunately were key needs for me so I returned it.

I’ve owned the BTR5, BTR7, UP5, ifi GO blu, the Dethonray Pegasus SG-1, the Qudelix 5K and the earstudio es100 and of all those portables, the best ‘quality of life’ device is the GO blu followed closely by the UP5.
