I had read that my Arcam rPAC was a but heavy on the juice and I had seen no reports of it working, however plugged into my UK Note 3....... it bloody works. Sounds very good, slightly less power than when connected to my PC, but that is to be expected. Works natively without UARP so I am very happy indeed, as I feel the rPAC is a very under represented piece of kit. Can it be added to the compatible DAC list please. Now I am off for some more listening and sending the E07K back to Amazon.

Jim.


funnily, I picked one up today for £135 and was going to post the same :)

 

Does NOT work on HTC One though...

 

[Edit - Stock firmware]

Strange that the HTC One doesn't seem to like it? I was quite shocked to be honest, as nobody else seems to have got it working. I'm using stock firmware too, is the HTC 4.3? What are your thoughts on the rPAC though, I think its very good, but I haven't got much to compare it to, my brother has one fed into a Marantz 6004 Amp and a pair of vintage Tannoy DC12's and that sounds seriously good. Does it work with UARP?

I found why I have got a trouble the mini2microUSB cable wasn't OTG

 

So I have to mofify mine or build one

Just got 1.0.2 on my Xperia (actually scared the devil out of me. I was listening to Music when the sound quit and the phone shut down all on its own. After a quick reboot, the phone advised it had updated the ap)....Alas, it will only play a single song and then I get 'error playing' messages and silence...

The excellent emotiva stealth dc-1 DAC is on sale until Sunday. I wonder if it works with osb otg or with UAPP.

So if you haven't done so already, please contact me by email.

Since it's working fine on my Htc One I thought I'd just remove it and install it again and it seemed to do the trick since it's working again now. Let's see what happens in the next few days now.

I really like this player and appreciate the work you put in to it!

on sale where?

post #3848 of 5959

I've one question regarding  UAPP:

-Step 1: I'm using CM11 latest build, when I connect my DAC the sound is working through it just fine

-Step 2: I start UAPP, it is also working fine

-Step 3: after I finish using UAPP, system sounds are still routed through the speaker - I have to disconnect and connect the DAC physically to go back to 1. Is there a way around it?

Hi all, first post for me.
I've just finished to read the whole thread ....
Purchased UAPP after 30 minutes of test.

I'm using it with Note2(4.3) - Fiio E17 - hd650 / ath-M50 /urbanears tanto.
Fantastic SQ so far.

The latest version of USB Audio Player PRO: 1.0.3

I can confirm that the Audioquest Dragonfly 1.2 runs on a Nexus 5 which in turn is running on CyanogenMod 11 (nightly 1/3/14) with the USB Audio Player Pro app. I am running an external amp and I have only plugged the USB into the OTG cable. I haven't messed with it connected to a PC yet, does anyone know if changes made on the usb via windows will affect the unit hooked up to a android device?  Sounds pretty darn good in this configuration too! I'll post photos when I get out of work.....if I get to leave with the snowstorm..........

As much as I would love to use UAPP with my Nexus 5, it's sub par battery life concerns me. I did recently get the Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3 and will return with results once I receive it, buy the E18, and buy the app.

 

My wallet, however, says it may be a while until I do the last two...

This is on stock firmware smily_headphones1.gif


 



Well, it's not surprising. I guess that'd work on any device with otg. It works on my Nexus 7 '13 too.
