Apt-X HD receiver recommendations/drop?

So since the death of the 3.5MM jack is looming upon us, apt-x seems to be the current favored wireless stack. Does anyone have a recommendation on something to plug mid- to high-end cans into that won't terribly compromise audio quality? Amazon has some devices, but none of them have any real information about the DAC they're using internally.

Here is one guide, from Qualcomm aptX HD:

If it's in your budget I just bought the new Fiio Q5. Has apt-x, among many other lovely features.

If that's not in your budget then you might want to wait for the Fiio btr-3 which I read on a forum is supposed to come out in June with aptx and LDAC.
