post #136 of 146
I agree with you my only question is that would a headphone amp get rid of the problem? Be aware i am a noob so if Im totally wrong forgive me.

Imo a huge disadvantage for the use as a DAP.



The Galaxy Nexus can be connected to USB mass storage devices.



It will likely interwork with an external USB DAC, even a 24/192 USB audio class 2 device.

high praise indeed for the 4s here!

The 4S is good, but a bit inferior to the 4 in naturalness, and the Galaxy Nexus beats them both, IMO. FYI I owned a 4, and now a 4S and a Galaxy Nexus.

You saying galaxy nexus sounds better than 4s after owning them both? I like that..

I have both sitting right in front of me, and yes, that's my personal conclusion with my Westone ES5 custom IEM. Of course, when sitting still, I still prefer my iPhone 4S -> CLAS/Fostex HP-P1 -> SR71A/ Stepdance/ iBasso DB2->SR71B setups.

An Android kernel developer is trying to enable the USB audio feature (i.e. to allow interoperability between Samsung Galaxy S2 and USB DAC).

He is looking for testers.

"Anyone have a dmesg log when connecting a DAC device? I don't use one so I can't test and get logs. If you need DAC support you'll need to help out here. If not, I can simply remove support for it in 1.4 since it doesn't work right and I can't test it."



Red Pill Kernel


Experimental: USB Audio support for DAC devices

Apparently, the USB audio is enabled on Cyanogen modded Samsung Galaxy S2:

Hallo there..


I just bought the Galaxy s2 - it will arrive next week. I am planning to replace my ipod classic with it. I'm using the triple.fi 10


As far as I read the Galaxy s2 seems to have a very poor SQ, especially when used with multiple BA InEars.

Therefore I want to buy an fiio e7 (usb DAC) and use it to improve the galaxy's poor SQ.

I read somewhere that android 4.1 is able to bypass the galaxy's own yamaha dac and to transfer the pure signal to an usb DAC. Is that true?

So will I be able connect the e7 to the galaxy's usb port and use the e7's dac, which is said to have a much better SQ?


Thank you for your replies!
