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?
