Portable DAC and Amplifier Q3 MQA Edition Is Officially Released!

From the R&D engineer:

DAC and headphone amplifiers used to be the leading products in the FiiO line. At the peak period, there were 2 complete product lines. However, we did not release any new ones because of influences from portable music players, USB audio adapters and Bluetooth DAC/Amps. And due to chip shortage, old models, including the Q1MKII, Q3 and Q5s, are all out of production currently.

The Q3 MQA coming this time is literally not a new product, but only a product with small changes due to chip shortage. It is for meeting the needs of users, providing them with another option other than music players and USB dongles.


A new start with classics, here are the main characteristics of the Q3 MQA:

1. Potent decoding capacity, all-new XMOS XU316

The chip shortage caused supply shortage of products. Therefore, the Q3 MQA edition applies the all-new highly-processed XMOS XU316, which is also XMOS' strategic chip to enter the AI market. Including 16 cores, it is accurately calculated yet with lower power consumption.


2. MQA support for high-quality sound

With the help of the strong XMOS XU316, the MQA function is added. When using the Q3 MQA with a music app that supports MQA, we can totally dive into a master-quality music experience.


3. Higher performance, lower power consumption

Knowing that the production of the AK4462 will not be resumed, our R&D team decided to use the similar AK4552 after doing corresponding research and assessments. Our engineers worked hard on improving the audio performance and indicators to the same level as the previous model. The distortion performance is even more stable among all frequencies and the headphone amp power output has been improved by 10%.


4. Upgrade using experience, all-new strapping kit

The all-new strapping kit designed to bundle together the Q3 MQA Edition to your phone greatly improves upon the experience from before. The high-transparency straps no longer block the display of your phone. Meanwhile, there are innovative X-shaped straps included, which can expose more display of the phone and further increase the operating area.
