I can't find my DAC to test right now, but I bought these items and they are working to provide my rooted TouchWiz KitKat 4.4.4 Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" T705 Tablet with a charge and ~nine port USB OTG at the same time. It's not a FAST charge.  I've seen up to 687 mAh with testing over the last ten minutes.   But the mouse and USB stick I've plugged in all seem to work fine. Tab S 8.4" T705 to Lava hub to Plugable hub.  This should give me at least nine powered/usable...
So I'm in the early stages of planning an Android tablet powered car stereo system.  The Galaxy Tab S 8.4" will be my "head unit". Audio from the Android will be sent to a USB DAC which will then send it to an audio processor which manages everything to the amplifiers.   I could spend extra on an audio processor that has user manageable EQ presets right at my fingertips.  Or I could go with a much less expensive processor which also has EQ presets but makes it a huge...
Folks, I have the Sound Blaster Z sound card outputting via 3.5mm audio to Miccus TX4 APTx Bluetooth transmitter to Avantree Saturn APTx Bluetooth Receiver to FiiO E6 Headphone Amplifier to Yamaha PRO 500 Headphones. My computer is a Dell XPS 8700 i7 (mid-hi end specs).  And I'm VERY unhappy with the audio quality.  At least, I'm unhappy whenever the computer volume is pushed past 25%.  The sound quality becomes heavily distorted.  If computer volume is set to 25% or...
I'm planning to get a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet to use as a car media center. I know we can charge the tablet and connect a USB DAC at the same time. But does anyone know if an OTG hub can be used to do the two aforementioned things AND connect a USB hard drive or USB video camera?
 I have a different device that is similar to the Avantree.  Same concept, different mfg.  I plug that into the TV (projector) and it sends Bluetooth to the Avantree which I have plugged into my headphones.  Works okay.
Hi folks, I'm considering the purchase of an E3 to mate with my Yamaha Pro-500 headphones to use for listening to action movies in my home theater via APTx Bluetooth.  Have a couple of questions.   1) I've read that you can plug this into a computer and use the Sound Blaster software to customize the built-in equalizer.  Is this customization retained after the DAC is removed from the computer?  Or does the custom EQ settings only work while the DAC is attached to the...
EDIT:  NEVERMIND, I WAS THINKING OF THE E3 WHICH IS SMALLER AND EASIER TO PERMANENTLY ATTACH TO MY HEADPHONES.  But if anyone knows the answer to these questions for the E3.....     Hi folks, I'm considering the purchase of an E5 to mate with my Yamaha Pro-500 headphones to use for listening to action movies in my home theater via APTx Bluetooth.  Have a couple of questions.   1) I've read that you can plug this into a computer and use the Sound Blaster software to...
I have used two different ATPx dongles on my PC.  Naturally, both use the same CSR driver (like 300-400MB).  When my Velodyne vFree Aptx headphones connect, I do get the "connected to APTx" splash screen.  You'll only get that splash screen when the aptx codec is engaged.  If your Beats headphones don't give you the splash screen, then they are not Aptx compatible.   Also, I gave up on the USB dongle.  The CSR driver is pretty bad.  Very buggy.   I now use a 3.5mm...
 Yes, I want to use my wired headphones as wireless because I have yet to find a set of wireless headphones that I like a whole lot.This would not be taped inside the headphone.  It'll be mounted on the outside via thin 3M double-sided tape (think pinstriping for cars). The E3 looks very interesting.  Thanks for the heads up on it.  Do you happen to know if the EQ can be programmed on the computer like it says, but then have those setting stick even after disconnecting the...
