I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as my source. I'm looking to add a Fiio DAC/amp. I really prefer the feature set of the E17 over the E07, but as of now it doesn't appear to work with my source. Is there a possibility the E17 will work in the near future? If so, would the only update be available through the root/mod route, or could it potentially be a software fix supplied by Samsung for non-root users or on Fiio's end? At this point I'd prefer to leave my Note 2 stock but if I end up having to root it, so be it. I've read through many of these threads but don't really know if it's worth waiting.
I have USB Audio Recorder Pro installed and that's fine for my own music loaded on the SD card. However, I listen to a bunch of streaming music through Grooveshark, Spotify, etc. and want to purchase a DAC/amp that isn't only limited to using the USB Audio Recorder software.
I have also read a bit about the upcoming E18. Could that be worth the wait for my situation? Due to the fact it's aimed at Android devices does anyone know if that means it more than likely won't play nice with Windows-based PCs? I listen mostly through my Note 2 but don't want to lose the ability to work with my home/work PC.
Thanks in advance for any insight and I aologize in advance if this has been answered and I failed to find the answer during my search.
