Plug and play, if everything is compliant with the USB specification.
 
The designers of the Galaxy S3 / Note2 and the Nova tiny-M have the same understanding of the USB specification: Galaxy S3 / Note2 and Nova tiny-M can interwork.

Another tiny DAC with a MicroUSB plug like the Nova tiny-M: HiFimeDIY Sabre Android DAC

http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=62&product_id=124

 

" This Sabre Android Dac has a MicroUSB cable instead of a usb cable and works with some Android phones without any drivers or tweaks.

 
Current tested confirmed models include:
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running newest software update
Samsung Galaxy Mega running Android 4.2.2
Samsung Galaxy S3 with newest software
Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android 4.2.2
LG Optimus G Pro 4.1.2+
Possibly works with most Android phones running Android 4.2.2
Does not seem to work with Cyanogenmod software
 
Please let us know if you have tested it with other phones, and we'll update the list.
 
No settings needs to be changed on Samsung phones. Volume up/down keys controls volume in the same way as for the regular output.

The Android Dac is the same DAC as the "Tiny" model. It uses a PCM2706 USB receiver chip and the Sabre ES9023 dac chip."

I would like to report that the pico dac amp functions with the galaxy s4 9505 verizon phone. Also if you are ordering a new pico please let Justin know that you would like the mod as it does not come without specifying that you want it.

Also a big thanks to Justin for going the extra mile. He is certainly a class act.

I was trying to purchase this Tiny-M thru the web store link, and following the process till I reached the shipping part, I was shocked that the international shipping cost $100! I cancelled the purchase immediately.

 

Buyers do take note of the shipping cost.

 

 

Updated: The shipping cost of $100 was an error, as pointed out by the seller Keith. For anyone interested, the shipping cost to Singapore is $13.

Yup! Might want to wait a while and see if they surface in ebay or elsewhere

Dear All Tiny-M potential customer,

 

I'm sorry for the mistaken our team has made on the shipping fee charge. We supposed to make $100HKD as shipping, NOT USD :(

We are now re-adjusted the shipping fee.

 

We will now start adjusting every region's shipping fee.

 

thx,

Keith Law

Any idea if this is any different from the Nova Tiny-M? (Other than price, of course.) From the specs, it seems like they are exactly the same.

 

To the US, after shipping, the HiFiMeDIY is about 43% cheaper than the Nova Tiny-M.

 

I guess it's unlikely anyone has both to compare.

For the time being, there are very few technical information available about the Nova tiny-M.
The Nova tiny-M has the same 24-bit ESS Sabre ES9023 conversion chip 
than the different HiFimeDIY DACs but its USB receiver chip is unknown:
. 16/48 TI PCM2706 USB receiver chip in HiFimeDIY Sabre Android DAC
. 16/48 TI PCM2706 USB receiver chip in HiFimeDIY Sabre Tiny USB DAC
. 24/96 Tenor TE7022 USB receiver chip in HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC
. 24/96 asynchronous Savitech SA9023 USB receiver chip in HiFimeDIY Sabre U2 Asynchronous USB DAC
 
The 24/96 AudioQuest DragonFly with a digitally controlled analog volume control has also the ESS Sabre ES9023 conversion chip, and its USB receiver chip is an asynchronous TI TAS1020.
 
The Stoner Acoustics UD100 has also the ESS Sabre ES9023 conversion chip, and the 16/48 TI PCM2706 USB receiver chip.
 
The upcoming UD110 is "a smaller and better replacement for UD100, running at 32bits.
And at the same price".
