So far, like the quad-core Exynos powered Galaxy S3, the quad-core Exynos powered Samsung Galaxy Note II can work with the FiiO E7, the iBasso D12, Leckerton UHA-6S MKII, the ODAC, … ; had some issue with the HeadAmp Pico (bug fixed by HeadAmp); and doesn’t work with the FiiO E17 using the stock USB audio driver.

 

So, in regard to the USB protocol, the behaviour of the Galaxy Note II is likely identical to the behaviour of the Galaxy S3.

 

 

 

A list of standard USB DAC reportedly interworking with the Android-powered smartphone Samsung Galaxy S3:

 

stock Samsung Galaxy S3 > digital USB audio out >> USB OTG cable (ID pin grounded) >> standard USB DAC >> amp >> headphones

The Galaxy S4 can’t work with the Apex Glacier; the Galaxy S3 can.

The Galaxy S4 can work with the FiiO E17; the Galaxy S3 can’t without using USB Audio Recorder PRO.

 

Bold: new addition to the list

Danba, happy to report my Xperia TL, 4.1.2, Neutron, OTG, USB hub, AGD NFB-12, WORKS FINE! No UARP, Neutron. Sucks battery fast. Going to get a HifiMeDIY mini Sabre DAC to go portable. Will update after I get it. Yikes!
post #2838 of 5383
I finally received my pico dac/amp however I a m unable to get it working with my verizon galaxy s4. Are there any settings that I may need to change or should it be as simple as plug and play. I am using the forza audioworks cable when I plug it into the phone I receive the usb connector connected but that is all it states and it doesnt state anything when I plug the other end into the pico. I am not able to get any sound through the pico with poweramp. Does poweramp have any setting that need to be changed.
post #2839 of 5383

Just plug and play!

You can also use the stock music player.

 

It should work.

http://www.head-fi.org/t/595071/android-phones-and-usb-dacs/2190#post_9387172

 

 

I am wondering if you have separately tested the different elements of your setup:

Galaxy S4 >> Forza USB OTG cable >> Pico >> headphones

 

. Galaxy S4 in USB host mode:

Galaxy S4 >> USB OTG cable adapter >> simple USB peripheral like USB mouse or USB keyboard

 

. Pico:

PC or Mac >> USB cable provided by HeadAmp >> Pico >> headphones

 

. Forza USB OTG cable:

Galaxy S4 >> USB OTG cable adapter + USB cable provided by HeadAmp >> Pico >> headphones

 

 

USB OTG cable adapter:

The pico didnt come with a usb cable but I did connect it to a pc with my ultraviolet cable and it functions perfectly.
post #2841 of 5383
I downloaded usb audio recorder pro and it does initialize the usb device or so it says but before it states that it says it cannot do something and that is usually because of not enough power and to try a powered usb hub.
post #2842 of 5383
Ok it states couldnt get the value of a gain/volume control this usually means there is not enough power and to try and use a powered usb hub.

Hey guys, 

 

here's some Android Phone news you might be interested in:

 

This caught my eye. Does not say what DAC chip it will have but still interesting:

 

The G2 also includes a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 16GB or 32GB of on-board storage, a 3,000mAh battery, and enhanced audio capabilities. LG states that the new flagship is the first smartphone to utilize 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback, which is said to create studio-quality sound.

The G2 also includes a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 16GB or 32GB of on-board storage, a 3,000mAh battery, and enhanced audio capabilities. LG states that the new flagship is the first smartphone to utilize 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback, which is said to create studio-quality sound.

That's great news! With only 16GB/32GB of storage I wonder how well the chip in this would handle streaming music from say, Spotify or Google Music?

On LG G2: it is still unclear to me, whether the phone will be able to output USB audio up to 24/192 to an external DAC, or would it only be capable of playing this type of content via its onboard DAC/3.5mm output jack? The marketing text, as usual, is as unclear, as possible...

The new Motorola phones being pre ordered on Verizon seem to be a step back. Still no USB audio out and worse, no removable SD card ability...In short, primitive sound and worse memory than the phones being replaced. I'll give Samsung a good look next time.

Do you have some solid info on the headphone out of the new moto phones? The moto x in particular?

I'd put money on the fact that that it'll be able to output 24/192 from the 3.5 headphone jack. LG has to think about the average consumer here and how to best market to them. WE may be willing to buy/run an external DAC but the majority of consumers would not.

I couldn't be happier with S4. I've been running with Samsung ever since the Epic Touch 4G back in 2009. But this G2 looks interesting.

I do not understand the question. I have no reason to believe the built in DAC is high rez but I know there is no USB digital out (perhaps USB Audio Recorder Pro works). The Verizon Wireless site advises the phone has no SD card slot and is limited to 32GB of built in memory, making it unsat for serious music. In short, the three new phones come wit a lot of bells and whistles that I have no interest in but do not do audio as well as their existing phones.

 

I am speaking of the new Droid Max, Ultra and Mini series of phones on pre order at Verizon.

 

The Moto X has similar problems, does not have an SD card option, is limited to 32GB storage, does not seem to do USB audio out, and is limited to 720 HD instead of real HD.

Okay, more specifically I was curious as to whether there was solid information that the moto x does not have usb out, and also whether the moto x has less than transparent headphone out quality.

Those two things seem to still be up in the air at this point.
