Android phones and USB DACs - Page 110

post #1636 of 5304

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.

Good day,

for the sake of Danba's list,

i can prove that the Sony Xperia P interworks with the FiiO e07K Andes through USB audio recorder

And i will do that with a photo.

Both Microstreamer and Headstreamer confirmed working on stock Galaxy S3 i747 AT&T without the assistance of Audio Recorder Application. 

 

Btw Micro > Head

Edit: Also Audio GD Sparrow AMP/DAC version "A" works perfect with Audio Recorder app. smile.gif

4.  That is great advice... THANKS

 

5.  I have researched a little.  Swimsonny instructed me to come here.  He said I would find what I needed here....

 

Thanks for your help and I hope my answers were sufficient.

What are you talking about?  This is the exact thread that I am suppose to be in...  And it appears others have a Note 2 are posting for advice here as well?

I have a Android phone and need help with USB DAC's.... The name is the thread is Android Phones and USB DACs....  I don't think there could be a more perfect fit...

 

roll over to the other side of your bed... wake up, and YOU try again.  ;o)

No prob man. I haven't ever heard the Denons, so I'm gonna be a pretty crappy resource there. But I'll echo WiR3D's recommendation to read his thread on amps that work well with the Denons, as there are a couple of portable amps and DAC/amps in there. Also, any post that includes a variation of the phrase "you monkeys are gonna make me flip my waffles" will get my vote as being worthwhile 100% of the time. biggrin.gif

You're looking for a USB DAC, now?  How could I have missed tha... oh wait:

I am a complete noob to quality cans.  I just bought an internally modded D2k from swimsonny.  I am very excited but I also would like to get an amp as I have been told they help greatly with the D2K's.  I am normally hiking or outside in a hammock.  I want a nice one but portability is important...

 

What do you guys recommend?

 

Thanks

This is a thread to talk about Android-compatible DACs.  You didn't even mention you had an Android phone or that you were looking for a compatible DAC in your original inquiry.  So based on what you asked, you see why I responded the way I did?

Hi people,

 

By popular request, I have have added very basic playlist functionality to USB Audio Recorder PRO. Don't get your hopes up too much, as I said, it's very basic! You can select a folder and it will play the wav/flac/ogg files in the folder (no mp3!). Your device still needs to be turned on and the app running in the foreground, but I see it as a bonus, since it's really a recording app.

 

Enjoy (if you can live with the limitations!),

Hey Davy,

there's really no way to make USB_AR work with the galaxy s2?

The S2 doesn't have isochronous transfers in the kernel, so unless a custom kernel comes with that feature for the S2, then I can't do anything about it.

That's great news, thanks Davy. I'll be downloading USB Audio Recorder PRO as soon as I get home from work today. I've been lurking in this and other threads waiting for a solution to allow me to use my Fiio E17 with my Google Nexus 7. I've been researching installing a different kernal, but now that your software supports playlists/folder playback I'll be going that route as it's easier and safer.

 

Based on the amount of interest and activity around enabling USB audio via Android, if you were interested in expanding functionality/creating dedicated playback software, I think there's clearly a market for it.

Be sure to download the trial version first so you don't get disappointed if the playlist functionality is not sufficient. The link is in the app's description.
