1. Apparently, the Xperia Z can work with the FiiO E17 without a hub.
2. It works with all players.
3. Yes, the USB Audio Recorder PRO app can play and output 24-bit audio to an external USB DAC.
Hi there, a quick question regarding your Post.
As far as i understand the Audioquest Dragonfly should work with the Sony Xperia Z (no ultra etc..), but would it work with the Walkman App or just with "USB Audio Recorder PRO"?
Its not about the extra-cash for the App but because of the UserInterface that seems to be superior compared to the one of the "USB Audio Recorder PRO".
I wouldn't mind buying the app, as long as i can use the Walkman-App to manage the played Songs.
Btw. most of the Stuff on my Xperia Z is encoded as 320mp3s cbr 16bit /44.1/48khz and a few titles as flac's, also mainly 16bit.
Hope you might be able to answer my questions!
BTW. Thanks for pointing me into the right direction, guess i was a bit too lazy :)
