Great to hear. No funny bussiness like running that pro recorder (or whatever) app? It just works?

The USB Audio Recorder PRO app can play music files stored on any directory.
 
Navigate through the file directory tree to select a directory by clicking on:
. directory icon
. <Directory up>
. <dir>

You should use the volume control of the mixer tab.
I am wondering if it is a USB HID/analog volume control or a digital volume control.

Hi guys, I've been lurking around here for a while but just decided to join.

 

I just got my Galaxy S4 and I'm trying to figure out if there's any way to get 24bit/96khz out of an E17 with anything other than USB Audio Recorder Pro.

I'd really like to use a full player like Poweramp.

Just used the stock player as you see in the pic I posted. No issues...it works..initially the sound came from the phone speakers but I found out the usb otg cable wasn't connected properly. ..pushed it a little more...worked after that

USB audio working perfectly on my Korean Optimus G Pro - Apex Glacier, RSA Intruder, HeadAmp Pico all working.

Out of those three which do you like best?

 

I want to pick up a usbDAC/amp combo to mate with my GS3 or may-----be Goggle GS4/HTC-One, but I'm no sure which to go with. I've got V-Moda M100s and like a bit of everything in the music department, but do tend to focus around female vocal dub-step. Given all that, which would you recommend between the Apex Glacier, RSA Intruder, HeadAmp Pico? 

 

side note: from my findings, all based on 32ohm headphone load (V-Moad M100) the Apex Glacier has 90mW output, RSA Intruder has 300-350mW output, and the HeadAmp Pico has 90mW or 700mW?! Can anyone clarify this?

 

I ask because I just powered my M100s with a 300mW output amp and did it ever make them sing. I know they're low impedance and require no amp'ing to get to listenable volumes, but the extra power somehow made the soundstage open up and the notes flow more easily. So now I'm very hesitant to go with a portable solution that has lower than that. Opinions?

Thanks so much for the info....Is there a way do have the app default to those files on the sd card...I defaults to the internal memory files and I have to redirect it...

 

On a related bit...the latest change to USB Audio Record Pro really cleaned up a LOT of issues. I wish they would take an hour and produce a basic, step by step users manual.

Samsung Galaxy S4 on AT&T but running an i9505 (euro) ROM called "Omega 3.1" with 5/30/13 version of Ktoonsez kernel.

 

It does not work with my Behringer UCA202.  I'll try other ROM's and kernels as I flash them.

MP3 music files can be converted to FLAC music files by an application like the free foobar2000.

Why in the world that we have to convert mp3 to a FLAC?

The USB Audio Recorder PRO app doesn't play MP3 music files.

It turned out alright (confirmed to work with my Note II and my Nuforce HDP) so I decided to post this tutorial for anyone with an Android device that is USB OTG capable for use with outboard DACs.

Does the Galaxy S4 support 24bit/96khz output to a DAC?

People keep saying that "it works" with all of these USB DACs like the E17, but I can't get 24/96 unless I use USB Audio Recorder Pro.

If someone could clarify, I would really appreciate it. I'm a bit confused here.

Why are you worried about 24/96?

Because I have hi-res music files, obviously.

In order to interface to the 32/384 capable ALSA USB audio driver, generic music players have to use the Android media player framework which currently has some hi-res limitation instructions.

The USB Audio Recorder PRO can play hi-res music files, because it doesn’t use the Android media player framework. It includes its own USB audio "soft driver".
