Do you know if HifimeDiy Android DAC works with Samsung Galaxy SII?

If the SII allows USB OTG without any issues and provides power, it should possibly work (with android 4.2.2+). The key lies in having android 4.2 or higher.

 

My Nexus 4 doesn't work directly, because it cannot provide power to it. I'm waiting on an OTG y-cable which I believe should allow it to work just like the Nexus 7 (with a USB OTG kernel).

It is already included in my list of S3 compatible devices that will get published on page 200.
Thanks!

Interesting!
Somehow, it’s the first time that Google implements USB audio.
 
"Instead of giving us a new Nexus device at this year’s Google I/O, the company behind Android instead announced the Google Edition Galaxy S4. It’s the same phone as the not-Google Edition model in every way except one: it runs stock Android Jelly Bean 4.2."

I will be getting a number of HiFiMeDIY DACs and I will be testing them with the S2. My S2, a standard i9100 as far as I can tell, works well with OTG on kernel 4.1.2.

Rumor: Galaxy Note III to support 4K video recording, 24-bit/192KHz music playback:

About 32-bit/384KHz Light Harmonic GEEK USB DAC/amp:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gavn8r/geek-a-new-usb-awesomifier-for-headphones/comments

 

"Pledge $159 or more

YOU'RE PUSHING IT ADOPTERS! This group of 300 backers will receive their GEEK for only $159 each.
 
Pledge $189 or more
Super GEEK - At this level, you will get a suped-up GEEK. This GEEK's amplifier is 1.6 times more powerful than GEEK's original amp— 720 mW!
 
Pledge $219 or more
Super-Duper GEEK - At this level, you'll get a seriously radded-out GEEK. This GEEK's amplifier is 2.2 times more powerful than GEEK's original amp— 1000 mW!"
 
 
"The advantage of Geek's final size is simple: we can fit in a much more complex, and better performing, circuit.  In the end, Geek is made up of 264 individual parts, not including the six-layer circuit board."
 
 

 

 
 
"Measuring GEEK
The computer being used as the source is a Macbook Pro 2013 Retina Edition.  The switching power supply in this graph is not connected to the laptop."
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

"We will test the GEEK working with iPad and Android next week. In our past experience, Da Vinci DAC can work with iPad + Apple Camera Kit perfectly. But this time, GEEK is Bus Powered, not Self Powered, so we need to test more and made some good changes of firmware part if needed.

Will let you know next week.”

Already have the Super Duper Geek pre-ordered. Sounds very promising.

Which for me is enough to justify adding another piece to the set up.

 

That's nice! Makes me want to try out the Geek at kickstarter :p

One of my friend used Note 2 + HRT Streamer for his car audio. He tried Dragonfly, but did not succeed.

I believe some of the DAC doesn't require UARP, for e.g. the iBasso D-Zero.
