Android phones and USB DACs - Page 242

post #3616 of 5952

I suppose it's worth asking, although I'm pretty sure I know the answer:

 

Anyone still have their Nexus 5 pure stock?  Probably not with CM11 supporting USB Audio, but I am curious to know if the new 4.4.1 update for Nexus 5 enables USB audio.  CM support is huge and I really, really, appreciate Kondik and the CM team for their work, but the real gamechanger is when Google/AOSP enables it (if ever).

 

So anyone here have 4.4.1?  USB Audio work on it without UARP/UAPP?  Thanks.

No still doesn't work.

Any 1 try CM 11 for nexus 4 to see if USB audio works? I doubt it though.

I just finished loading 4.4.1 build KOT49E 4.4.2 build KOT49H onto my Nexus 7 2013 and here are the (unchanged from 4.4) results from before:

 

Nexus 7 (2013) Wifi (Flo) (Android 4.4.2 build KOT49H, rooted, stock kernel, stock ROM):

Fiio E17: does NOT work with PowerAmp

Audioengine D1: does NOT work with PowerAmp (requires powered USB OTG Y-cable)

 

Both DACs still work fine with UARP 1.2.8 trial (D1 requires external USB OTG power).

 

EDIT: updated with 4.4.2 KOT49H info

Wanted to join to say what I have WORKING:

 

2013 Nexus 7 (deb) on CyanogenMod 11 (CM11) specifically the 2013-12-08 nightly,

 

With a Y OTG usb cable, I have a NuForce uDAC-2 working with no modifications otherwise. HOT PLUGGING works. I just plug it in to the Y cable, the other end into the tablet, and supply the power, and everything gets routed with zero issues.

 

Same exact situation with a NuForce Icon DAC. Works like a dream.

 

Hope this helps. Been going crazy trying to get it work for a couple months, and this rom fixed it!

Anandtech just posted an article showing the Nexus 5 having a THD of 15% in the left channel at max volume. All the more reason for a USB DAC, or not running at max volume.

Good news is that this phone is going to be available to Taiwan too. So far I've only played with this phone & the Vamp Verza. I'll need to see where I can find an iBasso D-Zero SE in the shops to test the above setup.

Hey I am in Taiwan too. Rumor sites say, available today. Guang Hua has Samsung store, and also, well some FiiO anyway. Where to find iBasso here?

In Taiwan? Dunno. I'm unfamiliar with the shops there. Otherwise just go to ibasso's website. (www.ibasso.com)

I was curious where that conclusion came from myself. Afterall the ZX1 is like other android devices (and to be more specific, Android 4.1.1...I think this is pre-Jelly Bean?). Anyway if anyone is curious, it's worked with my Leckerton UHA-6Mk2 but not my Resonessence Labs Herus.

Is the iBasso D-Zero-SE even available outside of Japan?  I thought it was a Japan-only special edition or something.  I couldn't find it on iBasso.com website and never found it listed except for a couple Japanese sites.  Then I found that it could only do 16/48 and I wanted something that could do 24/96 so I ended up getting a Fiio E17 which thankfully now works with my Galaxy S3 after the android 4.3 update.

You mean to say your Fiio E17 was not working pre 4.3 update, which was 4.1.2?
