Android phones and USB DACs - Page 179

post #2671 of 5139

Without USB Audio Recorder PRO, my stock Galaxy S3 with some music players can play 24/96 music files, but it can’t forward a 24/96 PCM stream to a 24/96 USB DAC.

For sure, but it will get resampled and converted to 16 bit.

Can anyone recommend an amp for my HTC one M7, my main headphones I use are tdk ba200's I crave more soundstage and instrument separation.

Can someone recommend a DAC only that will work w/ my Galaxy S4 and JDS C5 amp?

post #2675 of 5139
I see a lot of potential in this player.
Even plays 192/24, if the dac supports this, but how?

I would kill for an all-in-one solution that has a micro-b on one end, a built-in DAC like the Sabre Mini from HiFiMeDIY.COM and an extra USB Male connector so that it can charge the phone while its powering the DAC.

It is not an all-in-one solution, but something approaching it:

http://www.tnt-audio.com/sorgenti/m2tech_hiface2_e.html

 

PC >> Elijah Audio BPM (Battery Powered Module) USB cable or Standard-A plug to Standard-A receptacle splitter Y USB cable >> M2Tech HiFace Two USB-SPDIF converter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

USB OTG adapter: functional Micro-A to Standard-A receptacle adapter

 

 

 

 

 

+

 

Galaxy S4 using USB Audio Recorder PRO >> HiFace Two

 

 

 

+

 

Splitter Y USB cable =>

 

Galaxy S4 using USB Audio Recorder PRO >> USB OTG adapter + splitter Y USB cable >> HiFace Two or other USB DAC

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this solution with an USB OTG adapter, the Android device acts as a USB host, interworks with the USB audio device acting as a USB peripheral which draws power from an external battery.

 

In a solution with an USB ACA adapter, a USB ACA-capable Android device should act as a USB host, interwork with the USB DAC acting as a USB peripheral, and draw power from an external battery or another external power supply.

Just to report the new Ibasso D42 works plug and play with my Galaxy S4 (International Snapdragon) and doesn't need to activate debuggin' mode, it come with a short Otg cable too.

any problems using a large wifi drive with a android tablet (sony xperia Z LTE) and play flac files into a ART Legato USB-spdif converter via the usb?

 

anyone compared the transport quality of a android tablet compared to dedicated high end PC transports? CAPS, mac mini modded, SBT+EDO?

Looks like I will be switching to the T-Mobile Note 2 very soon.  I already own it, rooted it, and put a custom rom and kernel on it.  Still can't get my Hifimediy Sabre or Fiio E07k to work properly. (I tried the International ROM that is avail for TMO Note 2 with Perseus Kernel.  No dice)

 

Anyone know of any kernels and/or roms for T-Mobile Note 2 that let you use these DACs without the need for USB Audio Recorder Pro?  As I've mentioned earlier, the xda forums are of little help since the people there don't have much interest in it (and, similarly, I realize this isn't the best forum for a question on kernels and roms, but otherwise I'm in a catch 22 since I can't get a straight answer out of anybody).  I find it hard to believe with these devices and the number of kernels and roms out there (there are plenty of kernels and roms for TMO Note 2), that 1.) there isn't several combos of kernels and/or roms that work 2.) that I'm the only person in the US with (now) a TMO Note 2 who wants to pair it with one of these external DACs.

 

Thank you!!

Will this work w/ the Samsung Galaxy S4?

 

HifiMeDiy Sabre USB DAC

post #2684 of 5139

Not sure, but the fact that it is in a plastic housing is not a good thing for use with a phone. EMI will be bad since plastic does not shield against EMI. An amp/DAC with a fully metal casing would be the only option I know of if you don't want to listen to EMI.

What if I put a layer of tin foil inside the case?
