Okay sorry, forgot about Linux, as he was asking for Android.
Any chance to run the speakers with RCAs instead of the XLR. Shouldn't really matter a whole lot unless you're really running a long connection.
My speakers can only accept xlr & I read the RCA isnt as good sq wise so that turned me off rca.
Guess Ill have to wait until those xbal 1x2 are available again.
Well, since that is the input on your speakers, I guess you've got to get an adapter anyway.
This is for an Android tablet, sitting in my chair or bed, no need to carry it around. You are right to focus on the USB transceiver chip. It seems like with Audio-gd moving to USB-32 he will abandon USB OTG connectivity. If it was ever important to him.
