Here's my portable OTG rig I use with the S3:

 

 

Galaxy S3 <OTG cable> Belkin Hub <Griffin mini-USB cable> ODAC <Fiio L8> Meier Corda PCSTEP.

 

Yes, the PCSTEP's DAC is OTG-compatible (and sounds terrific), so the ODAC isn't required.. but I've got a QUICKSTEP (which has no DAC) on the way; which'll seamlessly drop into this setup.  My rig should become even neater since this hub & OTG cable replacement is coming, as well.

 

 

The reason I'm using a hub between the ODAC & S3 is cause the S3 returns that (dreaded) "..high powered device connected.." error when the ODAC is connected directly to it via OTG.  For some reason, using a hub (that doesn't even have to be powered) as an intermediary solves this problem (thankfully, a simple, inexpensive solution).

Hahaha nice one Coop....I've actually done a similar mod with the UD-100 here but with a C5 amp insteadbiggrin.gif

 

 

 

 

 

That's odd indeed as the my ODAC works just fine with the S3.

My international Exynos 4412 SoC-based Galaxy S3 can also work with my ODAC without using a hub.

The HifiMeDiy Sabre should work with the Galaxy S4 using the USB Audio Recorder PRO app, available on Google Play store. There is a free trial version.

I'm using the US variant, as I'm assuming you are in Washington. I've got the Verizon version, you?

@Theogenes.. yep, the PCSTEP's internal DAC works just fine with my (Verizon) S3 w/o a hub.  It's the ODAC that needs the hub.

 

@rckyosho & DanBa.. you both seem to be using an international (non-US) Galaxy S3?  I got the sense the different processor/internals might be why the ODAC works (w/o the hub) for you guys... but I'm not sure.  I haven't been able to test my S3 with a different ODAC, either (to see if something is faulty with mine.. I doubt it though.. as it's always worked just fine in terms of 'sound'/connectivity).

QUESTION; is there on earth at least ONE Android phone (or tablet) with OPTICAL audio out ?   This will really open many DAC compatibility opportunity....

Google Nexus 7 & HiFimeDIY Sabre Tiny:

Timur's USB audio Rom-powered Nexus 7 >> USB OTG cable >> HiFimeDIY Sabre Tiny

 

"What is different from the slightly bigger brother [ HiFimeDIY Sabre]?

- It uses the PCM2706 USB receiver chip in place of Tenor TE7022, which limits it to max 48Khz/16bit inputs
- 12Mhz osc instead of a crystal used in uae23.
- No optical output
- Might work on more devices (Android etc.)
 
- Volume level controlled by volume hot keys in Mac OSX, does not appear to work in Windows
 
What is the same?
- Sabre ES9023 chip
- 2.2Vrms output 
 
Which one should i get?
The new Uae Tiny is almost as good at a lower price. If you don't mind paying the additional dollars, go for the uae23 version (Hifimediy Sabre DAC). If you want to save a few bucks and don't need 96/24 this newcomer should be a good option."

Can you use volume control on your Xperia Z ???? , damn I love the dragonfly so much but I decide to end up with another one because I heard someone can't use volume control on their galaxy note 2 and s3 ???

Sorry, it is not mine. It belongs to a Japanese guy.

You could post your question on his blog. I'm not sure if he can understand English.

It's so sad that the FiiO E17 works with S4 (confirmed by XDA members here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=41229169&postcount=12)
but not the E07K which was working with S3. (confirmed and used by myself)
Both the 9500 3g and the 9505 4g doesnt work with the e07k,
Having the same situation that playing music will quickly fast forward with no sound output.
the 9500 even worse that once i plugged in the e07k it starts to crash the system. (maybe because it cannot output audio properly?)
However it's working with USB Audio Recorder if you stop the system outputting audio signal (mute) BEFORE you launch the app.
hope somebody can fix it frown.gif

"We have tested E07K do work as DAC for GALAXY S3 and Note 2, but there are few users reported that they can't make it work. so the official reply can not state as " compatible " with Galaxy S3 and Note 2."

Good news for FiiO E17 owners!

I want to buy Dragonfly so badly. Just need to confirm it's compatibility with S3.

HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 both work with Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII via USB-OTG straight out of the box. I got the One first then returned for the S4. This is AT&T version to be specific.
