Could you guys summarize a bit everything said in this post for newbies (maybe on the first post?).
I received my new android smartphone (Wiki Cink Peax 2), running on android 4.1.2. I also have a little dot DAC, and would like to use the phone as DAP (maybe with a fiio dac/amp).
I am reading pages and pages of this topic for hours now and still didn't find answers to my questions :p
Maybe someone can help me out:
-is USB audio recorder PRO a must for some smartphones? Are there some newer android versions that can be used as DAP where you only need to plug the USB cable with every music app you want and some olders versions needing USB audio recorder PRO. (I would try, but the app costs 5€ and I don't want to waste money!)
-With the right android/dac, are there any configurations needed or do it just work like that?
-Is it sometimes worth upgrading rom? Can you give some example of android versions working, not working, working semi-well etc?
EDIT: So in my case, android don't work with DAC when I plug it in. How can I know what to do? Other DAC? Other rom? Other OTG cable? Other android app?
EDIT 2: Wiki Cink Peax 2 working as DAP with USB audio recorder PRO and .flac file!
