anything else that sounds good for "modern" non classical music? along the line of rock , pop in the same size dimension?

 

Check out the iBasso D-Zero, using it now, it's fantastic! It's sound signature is not incredibly dark but it's on the dark side for sure. It's incredibly tiny as well!

A nice review I read before purchasing, by Keanex: http://www.head-fi.org/t/571116/review-ibasso-d-zero-with-fiio-e7-comparison

It's great in that it can drive anything I own, right up to the HE-6 if needed, so for that reason I'll certainly hold on to it. Anyways, just purchased the Apex Glacier and see how that suits my on-the-go listening... 

 

 

Thanks!

Looking forward to your impressions!

A custom HTC One X interworks with a USB headset:

Yes!

 

As far as I understand the developer of the USB Audio Recorder PRO app opted for the USB "soft driver" solution.

 

Moreover, he proposes to provide a USB Audio Android Service at the user space so that legacy music players like Neutron MP could use this USB audio service instead of the USB audio driver at the kernel.

Is there any custom setup suggested for siyah kernel to make it work correctly with the new "hardware" I bought ?? 

 

thanks for the attention !

Some one who knows for sure can clarify, but I believe the E17 doesn't work with the S3.  Davy's USB audio app won't work either.  I've been testing it over the past few days.  I haven't been able to get it to work on either Touchwiz or Paranoid.  He told me others have had the same result.

 

The big feature of Siyah is dual boot.  It's almost like having two phones in one.

Galaxy S2 doesn't have USB OTG support. It was taken out of the kernel a while ago.  

 

 

Edit: I see what you're asking. I doubt the feature will be implemented back into the kernel with JB but who knows!

Thanks , I am just trying to find a nice short cable that doesn't require any other adapters/cables to it, like the male micro- male mini cables. ANy suggestions? 

 

The cable in DanBa's picture is perfect, any place to get it? http://www.head-fi.org/content/type/61/id/754649/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL

I think the only fairly short host cable terminating in mini-USB is the one I posted a page or two back.

I successfully tested a FiiO E17 with my stock Galaxy S3 using the USB Audio Recorder PRO app.

This cable is provided in the box with the xDuoo XP-1.

May be, the cable could be provided separately.
You should contact Stephen Guo, the North American rep for xDuoo.
