FiiO announces the release of the BTR1 DAC &aptX Bluetooth amplifier in India at the price of M.R.P. Rs. 3990. The BTR1 is now available for purchase from online stores, local retailers and on Fiio’s official website.
With more and more smartphones starting to discard the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, to use the old headphones with such smartphones users have to connect them using an adapter cable which is far from convenient.
With such a background, Bluetooth devices such as Bluetooth amps and earphones have become increasingly popular.However, ordinary Bluetooth devices can be convenient to use but cannot satisfy the high demand for sound quality. Therefore, what can the little BTR1 Bluetooth amplifier contribute to your listening experience?
- Uses the high performing AK4376 DAC which provides better decoding capability, output power and signal-to-noise ratio.
- Supports aptX Bluetooth codec which ensures a stable & high-quality Bluetooth audio experience.
- A single button is located on the front with two volume keys on the side supporting multiple control functions.
- Supports voice calls with its built-in omnidirectional microphone.
- The battery can last for more than 8 hours when being used.
- All-aluminum body with metal clip, compact and easy to carry.
A great Bluetooth experience starts with the DAC: The BTR1 uses the high performing AK4376 DAC to perform digital decoding duties. Compared to the typical Bluetooth integrated solution, its decoding capability (up to 384 kHz / 32 bit audio), as well as its output power and signal-to-noise ratio, are all noticeably better. All of this ensures a stable, high-quality Bluetooth audio experience that will bring you closer to how your music was intended to be heard.

|AK4376||384 kHz/32 bit||25mW||116dB||-106dB||100dB|
|Integrated Solution||96kHz/16 bit||19mW||95dB||-83.5dB||87.5dB|
