Cyrus soundKey vs Fiio BTR5

Cyrus soundKey

soundKey is an award-winning revolution in mobile music. Hi-Fi streaming services like TIDAL mean fantastic quality is available to subscribers, but phones lack the necessary hardware to get the best from this data. soundKey unlocks that data, using our years of expertise in high-resolution DAC and amplifier design. Cyrus quality audio is now available to everyone.

$99.00 MSRP

Fiio BTR5

The Fiio BTR5 is a well regarded, portable Bluetooth DAC/Amp. Not only does the BTR5 accept digital audio input via Bluetooth, but it can also work as a dedicated portable amplifier through USB-C input.

I see it a step up from $9 dongles but the $99 price is hard to swallow.
