And there are some custom kernels for the S2 that makes this possible?

Maybe we can dig about that..

there are a lot of sgs2 users out there.

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!),

This is great news! Although basic, a big step forward. Thank you...thank you!

Thanks for the tip.

 

Downloaded the trial and everything worked without issue. Being able to play multiple tracks in sequence is a useful step forward. From a playback perspective it's a shame that you can't lock the device to turn the screen off and run the app at the same time (to preserve battery power). Greater playback functionality would obviously make the app a lot more useable for music listeners too.

 

I bought the app anyway in the hope it encourages development of a 'USB Playback Pro' version. I would be happy to pay again for that and I'm sure others would too.

 +1. Count me in as another buyer for a Playback Pro version that allows expanded playback options, ESPECIALLY if it can be set up as a service to work with existing players! Kudos to Davy for staying on top of adding to the functionality of the app!!

I'm having a similar issue with my Ayre QB-9. It works with USB Audio Recorder Pro with the default settings, but there is no sound with any of the Nexus 7 kernels I've tried (Trinity, Faux, Timur, jacknorris). While the QB-9isn't a portable headphone dac, it does use the Streamlength async usb protocol, so I'm wondering if this is the problem. I'm also using a regular usb otg cable and not a Y cable.

Has anyone got a DAC using Streamlength async usb to work with an android device?

For what it's worth, the QB-9 works with my linux music server which has a 2.6.35 kernel.

The CablePro Horizon USB micro to USB micro from TTVJ:

http://www.ttvjaudio.com/Connect_your_Galaxy_S3_to_the_Glacier_p/the0000104.htm

 

"This is the cable that makes your Galaxy S3 phone connect and work with the digital out to our Apex Glacier! Extremely well built and sharp looking, this give you one of the finest portable rigs using your Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apex Glacier. Of course having a pair of JH13 or JH16 IEMs doesn't hurt either!

The cable is marked with red on the GALAXY side and black on the GLACIER side. It is directional!"

Any ideas what it's made out of, out of curiosity? TTVJ doesn't say much but $119 is quite a bit to pay for a cable with little info on it's construction.

Don't get me wrong, I actually don't mind paying for good cables (even for digital - despite what others may think), however I'd at least like to know what I'm paying for if I pick one up.

So, is there any way to get a USB dac working that will also charge the phone? I'm thinking of finally dumping my Zune HD and using my S3 full time, but what I'd want is to be able to get into my car, plug my phone in and have audio out work while the phone charges. All solutions I see here have the DAC being powered by the phone? Or do I misunderstand?

 

Thanks!

Wow, it's awesome that you made an account here and using it!!!

Is there any way you would consider some sort of app that lets you use USB audio throughout the whole device itself? Like some sort of kernel patcher or something like that?

There is a way in Android 4, but it would still be limited to 16-bit and the sample rate that your Android device's internal audio chip can handle. I am not interested at all in kernel patching since the majority of users do not run modified devices. And if you are kernel patching, you can just as well enable USB audio when you're at it...
