Getting into Linux portable audio

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am a portable audio fanatic. I am happy with HM801 but I am looking for another solution for the portable audio. Now I am trying a computer audio in a Palm.

This is my new toy, Ubuntu(Linux) running on Sharp Netwalker PDA with DenDAC. DenDAC is a tiny Japan made USB DAC/Amp. I hooked my JH13 up to this setup and I get a great sound. Netwalker also works fine with DACport, this makes sound quality even better.

I am a newb to Linux world so I tried a safer setup without modifying config files. Now my setup is, I use FLAC music files using Listen Music Player. FLACs are stored in microSD memory. DenDAC is so small and will not required USB cable. This is a plus to use with such a tiny PDA(or a MID, if you like to call so) device. ALSA USB driver has been used with them.

Linux settings are a bit tricky to me, so I need study more about this area to use them better.

DenDAC sounded crisp and articulate. Well balanced, neutral and nothing so prominent to my ears. Very good for the price(12000 yen).
