Please do wink.gif. If you don't mind my asking, is there a particular reason you want to run the DZ from the phone battery instead of the internal battery? Not a smarmy question, legitimately asking...

Well as much as I want to, I want it to run it off its own battery. But this is what the seller had told me:

 And yes D-zero still drains the battery when it's on charge off mode. 

 

I don't really know how bad it is but I'm taking precaution since the parts you need for it is around $20 total with a decent 2800 mah USB battery anyway. Not bad if it means extended hours of listening through this portable setup!

Ah, gotcha! Makes sense now. To my knowledge (happy to be corrected if I'm mistaken), I don't believe the D-Zero pulls current from the phone when playing unless it's set to charge. I didn't listen to mine for any extreme listening sessions, as I recall, but I don't remember the battery draining any faster with the D-Zero hooked up (charge off) than without it. Of course, this was with the S3, which didn't have stellar battery life to begin with-- but that would seem to make it more susceptible to battery drain. 

 

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't have any issues, but as you mentioned, it doesn't appear to be a big financial hurdle to covering your bases either way. Definitely keep us informed on how you get on ;).

I use my phone at home on the go but I found that Dell tablet and its dock interesting for home use because this is how my set-up looks like at home:

 

 

Before I saw that Dell tablet I was planning on using the Galaxy Note, which has the advantage of having its sync port on the wide side - a music player app in landscape means I can have album art on one side and a track list (or even content navigation) on the other half, depending on the player of course. The Dell tablet has that, plus a dock that I think should make it easy to add additional storage (will still keep my Android and its microSD for use on the go of course) where my music can be, since it has an Atom processor and a full MS Office suite, I think I can use it in place of my laptop as well. I'll just have to not have any light gaming on this tablet netbook (well, maybe a PS emulator for Marvel Superheroes and Battle Arena Toshinden), and get used to firing up the gaming rig when I edit photos (no matter how much more convenient a built in SD card reader on a laptop is vs my next build, which will use cases that don't even have ODD slots, ergo no flush-fitting card readers either).

 

Of course I'll wait and see first, especially since my laptop is still working great. I don't really replace my laptops until not even a reformat can make them run smoothly (newer apps take more power, processor is really worn from all-nighters and these don't have the same coolers as on desktops, etc).

For OTG cables, I bought a .5m Lindy Mini B to Micro B cable for 7GBP. It works fine and isn't as long as I expected it to be. Would have preferred a shorter cable but the cheapest I could find was 45 euros. I'm using velcro to keep the HRT microstreamer attached to my laptop/phone. Be careful not to buy too strong of velcro though. I bought the strongest strength and it's overkill. The velcro is easy enough to remove and clean off the clue if you want to resell.

I can confirm the iDSD Nano works with an unrooted Google Nexus 7 2013 on stock Android 4.4,

USB OTG cable and USB Audio Player Pro software required.

LED color on iDSD corresponds with actual output as well.

It's a shame I can't use Neutron player.

iDSD Nano also working with stock unrooted Note 3, does not require UAPP and works with all players. Not yet tried a DSD test file from UAPP though.

Can somebody kindly direct/or upload me a DOP2FLAC test file? Was trying to place a DSD on a FLAC container using DanBa's link. Trying to test my Geek Out thru UAPP. File created won't output audio. Want to confirm if my procedure is at fault or the device. Thanks!

Hi there, how are the following DAC's working under Android (especially Xperia-Z) :  StonerAccustics UD110v2

How is it compared to the Audioquest Dragonfly?

 

The UD100 used the same ESS-Sabre Chip, and therefore shouldn't work without the use of UAPP, but what about the PCM5102-based DACs?

Would be great if someone tried them both out :)

 

 

Thank you.

The UD100 works natively without the need of UAPP on the sony z and sp,but UAPP makes it shine!!

. the Xperia Z can work with a 500 mA-required USB DAC like FiiO E17 without using a powered USB hub (i.e. the Xperia Z can work with any compatible USB DAC, as 500 mA is the maximum current a standard USB DAC can draw from a USB host like the Xperia Z).
