I saw an older thread from 2017 about this same topic but could not find an updated thread.  I saw that Topping upgraded their D50S to include Bluetooth ability.  I know any time you remove a wire from the equation, there will be some degradation.  However, I using my phone connected to a DAC on my Crack and Mainline and it sounds great.  I'm wondering if the sound would be at least NEARLY as good if I could stream from the phone to the DAC?

My experience is that there is significant loss through Bluetooth, and that you're far better off using the phone as a remote to control a computer if you need that functionality.

Thanks Paul - I didn't want to spend a few hundred bucks to discover that the performance was significantly worse.
