Radius RK-LCH61 USB DAC/amp & Ne PLAYER:

http://www.radius.co.jp/Portals/0/neseries/rk-lch61.html http://www.phileweb.com/review/article/201501/22/1501.html

 

Sony Xperia Z2 >> Radius RK-LCH61 >> Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 headphones

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ne PLAYER: another music player which includes its own USB audio user space / soft driver like USB Audio Player PRO or HibyMusic?

Anyway, it can play high resolution audio music files and output high resolution USB audio streams towards an external USB DAC (a generic music player like Neutron / Poweramp / Spotify / etc. has to interface with the Android media player framework which can only output 48kHz USB audio streams for the time being) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.radius.neplayer_ver2 http://bit.ly/1sLAHDq

 

 

 

 

96 kHz music file >> Ne PLAYER running on Xperia Z2 phone > 96 kHz PCM stream >> Radius RK-LCH61 USB DAC

Wow, interesting bit of gear DanBa, nice find. With Lollipop finally getting Androids USB audio chops into a more steady state, it's looking like we're in for a good year with lots of companies competing for our dollars in this market segment.

I download Kamerton.

It can play high resolution audio / DSD files, but the output PCM streams are always 48kHz PCM streams.

Kamerton is just another generic music player interfacing with the Android media player framework.

@kawaivpc1: I believe a lot of the media players out there that advertise hi-rez playback simply mean they can read the file (often by downrezzing), not that they can actually output the file at the correct rate to another device. I'd love to see more developers come out with true hi-rez output (like UAPP can) though!

What I'd like to see is Android to properly suport USB Audio, natively. That's when we all win.

Agreed, wholeheartedly.

It still wasn't done properly after 3 whopping years. Let's look forward to Android 6.X or something, LOL

At least Sony did write some codes that's closer to native support in order to "ignore" useless Android media player framework for true hi-rez output.

 

Actually Microsoft also didn't get it right for many years. Kernel streaming and WASAPI should be relatively new and most of us had to count on ASIO for a fairly long time.
