Android phones and USB DACs - Page 300

post #4486 of 5246

can you use the" USB Pro player" to see if it recognize the DAC as 192khz?

I am asking since I have tried "hifime DIY saber" with the G2 and USB Pro player and I could see the DAC work at 44.1, which mean it down sample the signal.

 

I want to know if this related to the specific DAC.

 

Thanks

How does it help me?

I just need to know if G2 is capable of 24/96 / 24/192 digital output via USB.

It's basically an inline DAC/amp, which is really where you want to be with this whole game if you're going for truly portable, rather than transportable.

 

When I want to just listen to Spotify and stuff then the Pico still serves very nicely there.

Can you elaborate on the sonic differences between the two?  Thanks.

I can't, only the Herus DAC belongs to me, it's my friend's phone and he has no need for that app because he only listens through the phone's own headphone jack.

 

If I can get the GO 1000 DAC to do a proper handshake using a y-splitter OTG cable and external battery, that will tell us what you are looking for, as the GO 1000 does have sample rate indicator LEDs.

 

However I don't think that will work, even when first connecting the battery to the DAC there is still an aspect of the handshake with the phone where the DAC tells it how much power it draws. That doesn't typically change when connected to an external battery, the DAC's USB controller still reports needing too much current and the handshake is then rejected by the phone.

Hooked you up bro...

 

UAPP app showing LG G2 playback of 24-bit/192kHz file's native sample rate through Resonessence Labs Herus DAC via OTG cable/Pangea USB-PC.

wow man!

 

you helped a lot!! thanks!

 

now I know the issue related to the specific DAC and the G2 is capable of sending 24/192 via USB.

 

which Android version your G2 is running?

The USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP) can display In & Out sampling rates.

 

44.100 music file > UAPP on USB host-enabled Android device (LG G2, ...) > 44.100 USB audio stream >> 24/96-capable USB DAC (ODAC, FiiO E17, HiFimeDIY Sabre, ...)

 

 

 

96.000 music file > UAPP on USB host-enabled Android device (LG G2, ...) > 96.000 USB audio stream >> 24/96-capable USB DAC (ODAC, FiiO E17, HiFimeDIY Sabre, ...)

 

 

 

192.000 music file > UAPP on USB host-enabled Android device (LG G2, ...) > 96.000 USB audio stream >> 24/96-capable USB DAC (ODAC, FiiO E17, HiFimeDIY Sabre, ...)

 

 

 

352.800 music file > UAPP on USB host-enabled Android device (LG G2, ...) > 96.000 USB audio stream >> 24/96-capable USB DAC (ODAC, FiiO E17, HiFimeDIY Sabre, ...)

Was the 192 kHz file down sampled to 96 kHz because the DAC itself didn't support 192?

 

 

 

post #4497 of 5246

yes the app supposed to work that way.

this is really good app for high end result since it lock the usb device and provide bit perfect playback.

I will, however I will need to properly sit down and compare them. That may take a couple of days between work and the twins (3 months old now) and organising NZs first headphone meet and maybe landing the clinical director job and thus even more work smily_headphones1.gif

do you use official Jelly Bean 4.2.2 without root?

The answer is yes, but it's not my phone, it's my friend's phone which he graciously allows me to use for testing Android USB audio with my Herus DAC.

 

I have a Nokia Lumia 822 Windows Phone 8, a personal private nightmare shared only by a precious few, possibly ending in May with the 8.1 OS update?
