That is a cute tablet. I am wondering why they don't add a S/PDIF output...
Furthermore, I don't understand why the manufacturers of new mini laptops and tablets do not include Audio Digital Output anymore. Even the cheapest laptop in the old times had SPDIF. Sometimes not with a dedicated connector, but as an Optical Output hidden inside the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
If someone knows this Aaron Seigo, please kindly ask him to add S/PDIF, and I am sure that he will have a legion of audio enthusiasts interested on it
Looks really cool, but how are you so confident this guy will devote time into getting the tablet to have DAC connectivity?
If he is going to call it Vivaldi, it should support High Definition Audio (192 kHz/32-bit quality)
I'm thinking about trying to install ubunutu on my hp touchpad, I wonder if that would have usb audio support? I know I should ask on the XDA forum but thought I'd bring it up here for people to see if they aren't already aware this is possible.
**Edit.. not sure sound is even working with native linux on hp touchpad, so.. nevermind.
Well scrypt. pingfloid, and especially you DanBa, THANKS! for all your efforts. You guys were certainly well ahead of me on this critical issue. Some of the responses you got Dan Ba annoyed me so much that I started a rant/thread on portable source devices tonight, "Does being a portable audio enthusiast make us stupid?"
Really, we've got buggy, expensive HiFi Man units, ipads with phallic appendages attached, dumpster scrounging for 5.5s to imod, $500 CLAS and HP1s to mine for a digital signal, etc. etc. etc. What a pile of CRAP!!! It would be SO easy for them to give this to us!! I ended my rant by saying what anybody who has even heard of Washington, D.C. knows all too well. The only way to get anything through is by advocacy/lobbying. So I thought, who better than a guy like Jude. We put money in his pocket by using the forum. I'm sure he quotes membership figures to his advertisers. Does anyone know him well enough to email him. Or tell me and I will. Meet with Google, meet with Apple and if they refuse, well Windows phone here I come. And with a pc, laptop, xp, Windows 7 and maybe 8, they sure as hell better give it to me! It really baffles me how sheeple are willing to go to ridiculous lengths to find a solution when the slickest, easiest one is staring them in the face.
Really Guys, I'm on board. Let's get this thing rolling. I will be happy to contact Jude, Tyll, etc.
After getting my DX100, my personal need for usb DAC support in Android is absolutely gone. However, I will still be telling everyone and their mother to support this, as I am a raging Android fanboy and this would really be a cool feature to have.
