Android phones and USB DACs - Page 373

post #5581 of 5584

DanBa:

There was such an attempt, but it was unsuccessful.

eXtream Software Development (i.e. UAPP software house) has developed a USB audio service that other music players can use to stream their decoded audio to USB DAC, but the other developers have not finally followed up.

 

Read the full post here, it is very well documented: http://www.head-fi.org/t/595071/android-phones-and-usb-dacs/5565#post_10985943

 

 

Thank you Dan for the update about the attempt of eXtream to offer their services to other audio players... Obviously Windows offers a framework the, which makes it possible for the JRiver developers to pick up sound data from all applications before they go through Windows own sound system. According to your post, Android does not offer such a possibility, or we have to wait for the little genius capable of making a breakthrough like Gordon Rankin at Wavelength for USB or JRiver with their WDM driver.

 

The special JRiver driver works because it just hijacks the data, without asking anybody. A development, which supposes that the applications the data are hijacked from do their part, cannot work on a broad scale: such a step would devaluate their own product.

 

High quality audio will always to be fought for...

 

So we have to wait for the Android team or some brand specific additions, as you sketch it.

Can't seem to get Hifimediy U2 Sabre Async dac to work with Galaxy S3 even though it's listed by UAPP as compatible.

 

If I connect it with OTG cable, then the green light on the DAC doesn't light up or just flickers momentarily

 

With the DAC powered from a p/s using a special injector cable (that goes into the OTG cable), then it does light up green but UAPP says no device connected.

 

Anyone else been able to get this DAC to work?    TIA

What kind of OTG Cable do you use? Looks like an after market to me :-)
