I am not quite willing to give up the convenience of a music player for the better sound of the external DAC using USB Audio Recorder Pro. It gets old pretty fast to manually load one song at a time. And again, I like some of the effects the Noozxoide app provides and that does not work with the USB app. I do hope to use an external DAC full time sometime soon when this possibility is more convenient to use.
Yes, another important solution for people is: upgrade your phone. To an S3, Note 2, or this spring probably an S4. Those phones put the USB OTG into the kernel, and then you are free to choose from many different players. With better features for random, or DLNA, or playlists, or more extensive floating-point manipulations. God bless USB Audio Recorder Pro, but if as its single developer states, its raison d'etre is recorder you might wait a while for features like those.
Now for aging phones that USB Audio Recorder Pro supports, that fact means their hardware is up to snuff, and its not impossible Cyanogenmod could save your bacon some day, with a release with USB OTG in the kernel, and then you could use any player software. There's safety in numbers, as far as choosing phones that have sold more copies.
