You have to search it in the lindy catalogue or in ebay as usb otg mini b to micro b, I have ordered one from ebay (50 cm long) but at moment it seem no more listed.

This is perfect but the price is not too affordable http://forzaaudioworks.com/en/product.php?id_product=55

Ciao

To get the full functionality you must first obtain a otg cable as specified by SV_huMMer member.
I have a ODAC with galaxy note 3

This statement comes as a great surprise to me! In no way am I trying to sound rude or anything, but I have to ask are you sure?

This contradicts my understanding (as well as the general consensus) that in order for an Android phone to interwork with a standard usb DAC it needs to enter the host mode, because a standard external DAC is a slave device, and needs a host. Until this post of yours, I knew of the only way to achieve it - connect an OTG cable with pins 4&5 shortened. What you say can mean three things: Note 3 has another way of sensing a slave device and launch the host mode; ODAC complies with newer rumoured Android DAC specs where DAC is a host; or your seemingly regular micro to mini cable has OTG wiring. Or, I am completely missing something very important in this whole thing. ..

Do you get same results with other usb dacs? Do u use stock music app in both cases?

Hmm ... I think so, but you make me the trouble that the cable used from me was an otg and maybe I've forgotten it to be an otg ....



I have too many cable that my error is possible.



When I return to home I have to try another cable....... thanks.



Do you have a note 3 ?



Anyhow I don't have the ability to make the switch from 16-bit 44 khz to 24 bit 96 khz with the cable I speaking about.



Pardon my english.

Going to test my Nexus 5 tonight with a few DACs.

post #3400 of 5143

Does anyone know if the pin layout is always the same in all Android phones?

 

I know that for Apple's 4-in layout the ground and mic pins are reversed, but I wasn't sure if ALL Android phones shared the same pin layout.

thanks for your patience and for double checking! :-)

 

I think this is what makes such threads really valuable - people do put effort into making the info reliable.

I love this rubberized mat that you wrapped ODAC into :-))

Nexus 5 > UARP > Aune T1 = working

Nexus 5 > HifimeDIY Android DAC = not working

 

(Will retest once Cyanogenmod roms come out for 4.4. They enable USB audio)
