In the mean time, you could use USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP) which includes its own USB audio soft driver.

For the time being, to my ears, UAPP is the best sound quality music player.

It doesn't perform resampling like other music players which have to use the Android media player framework.

And the Android media player framework resamples any input sample rate to 48 kHz for the time being.

Thanks!  I just download the trial version for a test and I can now output from the Note 8 USB to my amp/dac.  The full version is $10, which isn't a bad deal and it now gives me me 2 options at work for streaming music: phone, tablet -- I prefer the tablet as to not drain my phone battery.   I'll probably end-up upgrading my Note 8 to the new Tab S tablets before end-of-year sales, so I'm hoping this won't be an issue with those as well.  Much thanks.

The reasons are as follows:

 

1. I don't own a LG G3.

I have two Android smartphones Samsung Galaxy S3 / Note3. I switched from iPhones.

 

2. I favor Samsung smartphones because the Galaxy S3 is the first Android smartphone which includes a native USB audio feature.

 

3. I also favor Samsung flagship smartphones because Samsung is the biggest Android smartphone maker: biggest smartphone maker, biggest number of smartphone owners, biggest potential number of votes for the Goggle issue "24614: Add support for USB Audio".

I don't track custom USB audio implementation because most people use stock devices.

I don't have time to track every Android device.

 

4. I also favor the Android L-powered Google Nexus 5 / 7 because their native USB audio would become the reference USB audio implementation in the USB DAC industry: USB audio will be included in every USB host-featured Android device, the dominant computing device.

 

 

BTW, I did inform people about your LG G3-based setup.

LG G2 pairs with the Stoner Acoustics UD110V2 DAC

 

 

G2 USB connector -> OTG cable -> UD110V2 -> earphones or earphones amplifier

It is funny because I was actually going to post this option fora phone being used with a DAC as well. I had just tried this last week and it worked jusst fine.

Is there a way for UAPP to access SAMBA shares via Wi-Fi networks? If so, just wondering if DSD were supported that way.

Yes, with a device called a Ravpower Filehub. See below (and search the thread for more info). I have one and find it incredibly useful, with one major caveat: you can only select one file at a time, so no playlists or folder playing yet, which means it ends up being more useful at the moment for movies than music (in my opinion, anyway). If you were really dedicated, you could attached multiple tracks together into one big track and play them back here, I suppose, but I've never actually done it-- I'm just waiting for a fix for UAPP and/or Ravpower that allows for queueing up multiple files and am content to piddle around until then. 

 

If there's a better solution available, I'm not aware of it, but I'd love to be! :)

Onkyo HF Player is coming by the end of July, too bad they're resampling everything like DSD to 48/16 until they've figured out how to do bit-perfect playback. LOL

Thanks buddy, I was looking for some apps that could map SAMBA shares as a local folder under /mnt/sdcard without root access. Then we could mount 2TB Seagate Wireless Plus by pointing \\172.25.0.1\Public to /mnt/sdcard/Public

 

Most likely that won't be an easy task, that's why it's requiring root access plus CIFS-enabled kernels as mentioned below

Samba network file sharing will be available in an upcoming release.

It is aimed for: large storage capacity, large (DSD, ...) files.

 

 

Non-stop UAPP folder playback: Music files stored on a 2TB portable hard drive

It won't perform resampling using the native USB audio of Android L.

Anyway, the Onkyo HF Player seems interesting (DLNA, DSD -> PCM, DSD -> DoP, ...).

Comment #1345 on issue 24614 by gkas...@android.com: Add support for USB Audio
http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=24614

Sorry for any confusion, but in our exuberance about USB audio, we flipped the status to Released a bit early.  It is true that L developer preview includes some USB audio support, but it is not quite complete in L developer preview. Please bear in mind that there are myriads of use cases and devices out there. And while we may not support all of this initially, we will do our best to support as many as we can at L launch, and work to bring this support to the entire ecosystem as fast as we can. We're continuing to work on it, so I'm changing status to Assigned. Thanks in advance for your patience!

 

 

 

Thats a Big BUMP

I'm sure it'd work from my NAS via file explorer, it'll be single track selection only like the other solutions posted here.

I posted my question below earlier on the DX50 thread, but just noticed this thread & will post my Q here since my aim is to use the N7's USB audio port along with the DX50 as the DAC/Amp:

 

Anyone tried using the latest Nexus 7 USB Rom with the DX50?

 

http://mehrvarz.github.io/nexus-7-usbrom/

Supported USB audio devices

These are just some of the supported USB DAC's: CM106-F, FiiO E07 + E10 + E17, Hifimediy Sabre, VIA USB Audio Dongle, Behringer UFO202 + UCA202 + UCA222, Syba SD-CM-UAUD, Miditech Audioface2 (PCM 2902), FujitsuSiemens PortReplicator (CM 108), Aune T1 (TE7022), Turtle Beach Micro II, BERESFORD Caiman, Teralink x2, Headroom Total Bithead, Fostex PC-100USB.
Basically all standard USB audio devices should work.
Problems have been reported only with TAS1020B based DAC's.

 

The DX50 is not listed, but I'm trying to find a way to use it as a DAC since Ibasso is still awaiting for certification of its drivers from MSFT.

Hey Casper.

How does the S5 + E18 combo sound compared to the AK100 II? I'm thinking of getting an E18 for my S5, coincidentally, and would like to know how the DAC and amp of the E18 compares to those of a dedicated DAP like the AK100 II.

Cheers
