Which phone / case are you using ? i am interested

post #4322 of 5368

Sorry, they are not mine.

You should ask Vectron, their owner.

I think the phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note II.

post #4323 of 5368

i got a galaxy note 2 aswell, but damn, i am not sure that it is a note 2 or s3 or smtg else.

 

It its a note 2 i am interested in the case ^^

The case is a UAG case. I use the same one on my Note 2, but in black.

post #4326 of 5368

That case is an Urban Armor Gear case.  My friend and I both have it for our Galaxy S3s and my other friend has one for his iPhone 5.  It's a nice compromise for protection without the bulk of the full Otterbox Defender case.  Now I gotta look for that Scotch sticky tape for my E17.

I'm in the US, need LTE, need more than 32GB of storage (more than 64 really - music library is now 72GB),and want USB DAC/AMP compatibility.

 

It seems like Samsung is the only real choice?

post #4328 of 5368

If you've got LTE you actually need far less local storage? My music library is close to 1TB and it's all as good as stored on my 32GB Nexus 5. I run an FTP on my NAS -- or if you don't have a NAS most half-decent routers support FTP access to a USB attached HDD -- forward port 21 from WAN (my ISP provides me a static IP / hostname but you can use a free DynDNS/No-IP for convenience), and I can download whatever music I want straight to my phone with ES File Explorer wherever I am. On LTE I get around 2MB/s while on a moving train. WiFi over WAN I can hit 5MB/s+

 

Another advantage is never needing to plug my phone into my PC to transfer music. Forget microSD and paying extortionate prices for additional internal flash storage - private cloud is the future ;)

I'm really not interested in streaming. Too often I'm in spotty or no-service areas. Also Time Warner throttles my connection any time there are sustained uploads.

And, I still maintain an ITunes Match subscription, anywhere I'd have a good connection and my computer, I'd have access to the whole collection anyway.

Goal here is to have the whole library on the phone.

Hi Guys,

 

im Currently searching for some DAC/AMP Combo that works fine with a HE-500 and would like to ask if anyone knows if the

Audioengine D1 

or 

Pro-Ject DAC Box S USB + Meier Audio Corda Rock

 

are working fine with a HTC One X Plus.

(i know that first little guy will not pour out the full potential of the HE-500 but for the moment thats ok).

 

Thank you in advance for any Help.

Would this cable work for connecting my phone to a Fiio E17?

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-USB-male-Micro-USB-Male-data-charger-cable-10cm-/120718382619

 

Its the right price and length, but it's listed as a "charging cable"

 

I'm having a helluva hard time finding a Micro - to - Mini.... I seem to remember reading somewhere that if its not OTG, it wont work.

You're sure you have the right cable (data + power) not just a charging cable?

 

Have an Xperia Z (4.1.2 then) and an M2tech Hiface DAC and it works.

post #4335 of 5368

Yes, same cable I use with my Nexus 10 (4.4.2); it's OTG micro USB coming with FiiO E18. Phone doesn't recognize DAC. Which player do you use ? What message do you get when connecting M2Tech ?
