In case your memory of the search giant's in-car plans is a little fuzzy, Google wants you to be able to connect your phone to your stereo with a USB cable -- once that's done, you can issue voice commands, sketch out routes and fire up apps like Spotify or Soundcloud."

Hi fellows, 

 

Im totally new here, wishing everyone a happy upcoming weekend.

 

My father is a serious audiophile and he is very interested in using his android phone to play music in his hifi systems. He was not a very techie person unfortunately.

 

I found that I need a USB DAC to convert the signal to an analog one, as I found out more, I think i am unable to use any apps to play music if I want to link up the USB DAC to the amp.

 

I dont mind buying a suitable phone for him, but can someone advise any simple solution to link his phone to the amplifers?

 

I saw this website and thought it is pretty cool!

His birthday is coming up soon, and I hope I can provide a solution to him soon. =(

Welcome!

 

 

You may read some information about Android USB audio:
http://www.head-fi.org/t/595071/android-phones-and-usb-dacs/6435#post_11399099

 

FAQ:

A list of USB OTG cables:

A list of USB Audio Player PRO resources (compatible USB DAC, compatible Android devices, ...):
http://www.extreamsd.com/USBAudioRecorderPRO/

 

 

According to the USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP) website, UAPP is reportedly compatible with:
. Working audio devices with eXtream Software Development USB driver
.. Yulong Audio Sabre DA8 
.. Yulong Audio U100
. Working Android devices
...

 

 

So, one of possible setups could be:


DSD / high resolution audio / CD resolution audio / MP3 / ... music file > UAPP running on one of Working Android devices / phones > digital audio stream >> USB OTG cable >> Yulong Audio Sabre DA8 32Bit 384kHz DAC > analog audio stream >> amp >> speakers

 

USB OTG cable = USB OTG adapter (i.e. micro USB OTG plug to standard USB receptacle) + regular USB cable provided by Yulong Audio
or
USB OTG cable = micro USB OTG plug to standard USB plug cable

Thanks a lot for the help, but is there any other way if I dont wish to use USB Audio Player PRO?

 

My dad listens to TTPOD. He is not exactly savvy with the phone.

 

I was advised by this seller that this can plug to the phone.

oneplus one > USB Audio Player PRO > USB OTG cable > iBasso D-Zero MKii > AKG earphones

 

reported working good and stable.

 

Can I ask, aside of USB Audio Player Pro, if there are other players supporting ubs audio? I searched for them but I couldn't find any compiled list.

 

Thank you

Hi 

 

But is there a way if i wan anyl apps to work on the USB Dac? for example, my dad sometimes wish to play radio app or some other players.

 

I was advised that the Xiangsheng DAC 03A can be used directly, anyone has any experience?

post #6503 of 6503

You can test the compatibility of the native USB audio of an Android phone and the Xiangsheng DA-03A at the USB DAC shop:


TTPOD music player / stock music player (interfacing with the native USB audio) running on an Android phone >> your USB OTG adapter + regular USB cable of the USB DAC >> Xiangsheng DA-03A USB DAC >> amp >> speakers

 

 

Native USB Audio is usually available on Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony or Xiaomi flagship models like Xiaomi Mi 3 / 4.
