->  Finally does the Note3 allow USB host with 24/96 support at least ?   

 

The stock Galaxy Note3 can forward 24/96 PCM stream to an external USB DAC without using USB Audio Recorder PRO.

Galaxy Note 3 & high-resolution audio:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

 

Native USB audio with stock music player: 24/96 high-resolution audio

 

24/96 music file > stock music player running on Galaxy Note 3 > 24/96 PCM stream >> USB OTG cable >> 24/96 capable FiiO E17 USB DAC/amp

 

 

 

Native USB audio with Google Play Music player: 24/96 high-resolution audio

 

24/96 music file > Google Play Music player running on Galaxy Note 3 > 24/96 PCM stream >> USB OTG cable >> 24/96 capable FiiO E17 USB DAC/amp

 

 

 

Unlike the Samsung stock music player and the Google Play Music player, other music players like Neutron or Poweramp can only forward 16/44.1 PCM stream to an external USB DAC.

 

Is there a self-limitation (i.e. downsampling) of these players?

 

Or do the Samsung stock music player and the Google Play Music player use a new (?) separate audio environment, Professional Audio or JACK bypassing the legacy Android audio environment "AudioFlinger"?

Thanks DanBa, it looks like this is THE solution for me.:D

 

What is the most elegant (smaller, and if possible 90 right angled on booth end) USB OTG cable available.  

 

something high quality and small like this one made by a fellow Headfier for his iPhone:

Both LG G2 as well as Samsung Galaxy Note 3 should be good for 192/24 without having to install USB Audio Recorder PRO.

 

However, not ALL flavors of LG G2 would have built-in micro SD slot (e.g. Korean version = present / Hong Kong version = absent) so definitely double-check before you get one.

 

For OTG cables, only right-angled on the micro USB side but so far no better ones are available with similar prices

@bmichels 

I would suggest taking your Hifi-m8 and otg cable to your local cellphone provider (store) and trying out the Note 3 or other capable smartphones to see if the m8 works with the stock player.

My Xperia Z1 simply detected the X3 on DAC mode, just by plugging it in. X3 woke up from sleep and immediately went into DAC mode.

It is showing up as 192kHz 24bit DAC on USB Audio Recorder Pro and sound comes out of it.

 

Did you change the USB mode of your Android to debug mode?

Just want to put it out there in case it hasn't been mentioned yet....my galaxy S4 from Rogers works with the old Fiio E7. I know the E17 has been confirmed and I have the E17 as well.

I think the E7 works for most galaxy models since the S3.

 The at&t variant runs the Qualcomm right? Has any checked  the JDS Labs Odac works with the i9505? I see DanBa's latest list doesn't include it (thanks btw DanBa).

Wow that is nice. Would you recommend the AK10 for $300 using with android phones? Also how is the AMP - does it give decent volume boost?
