A standard USB DAC operates only as a USB peripheral. It only interworks with a USB host.
The SGS3 is a USB On-The-Go device.
A USB OTG device can act as a USB host or as a USB peripheral.
Simply put, a USB OTG device, like the SGS3, acts as
. a USB peripheral when a Micro-B plug is inserted [regular cable]
. a USB host when a Micro-A plug is inserted ["OTG cable"]
SGS3 as USB peripheral:
. SGS3 – regular cable – PC / Mac as USB host
. SGS3 – regular cable – upcoming specific Android Jelly Bean-compliant USB DAC as USB host
SGS3 as USB host:
. SGS3 – "OTG cable" – USB mouse as USB peripheral
. SGS3 – "OTG cable" – standard USB DAC as USB peripheral
One cable running from device to device would be nice but I could only get it working with two cables
An "OTG cable": Micro-A to Mini-B cable
