Omnipotent Type C port eventually came true
Still holding on to the design language of a detachable amp module, the new version of Q5s is compatible with all FiiO AM- series modules. The standard AM3D balanced amp module included is equipped with the Type-C port, along with the 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced headphone output.
THX AAA amp module
The AM3D is an amp module being certified by THX, meaning it has reliably cut the mustard of THX AAA technology. The two THX AAA-78 modules build a fully balanced amp architecture, achieving more superior audio performance as well as output power, so to immerse users in a music world of high quality yet low distortion.
Chewing through formats with ease - Packing dual AK4493 chips
The extremely powerful flagship DAC and amplifier has once again set a new bar in performance. The Q5s (Type•C version) employs a dual DAC design, with the left and right channels each equipped with the next generation AKM AK4493EQ DAC chip – with its lower distortion, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and greatly more refined mids and highs.
Massive improvement from upgraded clock management
In order to further improve sound quality, the Q5s (Type C version) utilizes the XMOS XUF208 USB decoding chip paired with a precise clock matching management system, allowing for support up to 768kHz/32 bit PCM and hardware-decoded native DSD — so you can be sure of excellent sound no matter what format your music is in.
Bluetooth 5.0 - aptX adaptive added
Thanks to the Qualcomm QCC5124 Bluetooth chip, the Q5s (Type C version) is able to support Bluetooth 5.0, which keeps hi-res Bluetooth formats like the LDAC and aptX HD, but with a new format added- aptX adaptive. It owns stable audio output streams so that it can ensure a free shuffle low latency when playing games/watching videos, and high quality when enjoying music.
Audiophile-grade power supply
A well-designed power supply goes a long way towards achieving great sound. Alongside the numerous low-noise LDO regulators, the analog, digital, low-pass, and amplification sections of the Q5s are independently powered and isolated from each other — ensuring your music comes through as cleanly and purely as possible.
Feel the music through true high- fidelity sound
The dual AK4493EQ DACs work together with six carefully-implemented op amps to form a truly balanced audio design.4-channel analog volume control, Panasonic film capacitors.
Exquisite finish exudes quality luxury
The sandblasted all-aluminum alloy CNC chassis is worthy of a flagship. The carefully-selected quality PU leather packing its back, gives you a feeling you will just grow positively attached to. The long and short binding straps can freely bind it to other devices, making the connection more convenient.
Looking forward to turning on the lights
The RGB lights are a clever way of indicating the audio format — the 6 different colors quickly tell you which Bluetooth codec is currently being played through the Q5s (Type C version) *When in USB decoding mode, the RGB lights indicate sampling rate.
Intuitively know the details with just a glance
Each input mode is represented with a separate indicator light so you’ll know where you are playing from with just a glance. Long-press the input selection button on the side to view how much battery is left according to the status of 4 LEDs. Even with tiny details like these, we put and heart and soul into making the experience better for you.
Fully stocked on inputs
In addition to USB and Bluetooth decoding, the Q5s (Type C version) also supports SPDIF digital input and line-in analog input. The coaxial, optical, and analog line-in input are all handled through a multifunction input port that supports up to 192kHz/32 bit.
Find your rhythm with gain and bass boost controls
The hardware gain and bass boost control circuits ensures that the quality of your music doesn' t diminish while still allowing you to get your music to sound exactly the way you want it.
Plentiful power reserves for constant usage everyday
The massive built-in 3800mAh rechargeable polymer lithium-ion battery is sure to be able to get you through the day in most situations.
Use it worry-free with intelligent adjustment
When connected to your computer, the Q5s (Type C version) will automatically adjust its charging current and rate according to smart detection of the USB port's output capability. And when connected to a phone via USB, the Q5s will automatically know not to charge and draw power from it — so you can just use the Q5s free of any worries!
Analog potentiometer volume knob for accurate volume adjustment
The implementation of the analog potentiometer volume knob effectively eliminates low-volume channel imbalance with traditional analog potentiometer volume knobs, thus allowing for much greater precision in adjusting the volume in tiny steps.
No need to install drivers
compatible with both USB Audio 1.0 & 2.0 For ultimate convenience, you can simply enable the USB Audio 1 .O mode to experience decoding up to 96kHz/24 bit PCM without needing to install any drivers. (Press and hold the previous track button, then connect via USB to start USB Audio 1.0 mode)
Discover more flexibility with just a few taps
With the FiiO MusiC app, after connecting the Q5s (Type C version) via Bluetooth you can adjust its channel balance, select the low-pass filter, control the RGB lights, and customize the power-saving shutdown timer.
Certified by multiple reputable institutions
The Q5s (Type C version) has acquired Hi- Res Audio certification, Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification, Qualcomm aptX certification and Sony LDAC certification.
