I wanted to go that route. Windows tablet 7-8" with JRiver / Foobar + JPlay. For my portable setup. 

 

Then I went to a fullhouse DAP (Geek Wave).  Hopefully it will play the bill.

On the Dell, I tried foobar2000 and JRiver Media Center, and for some reason I just liked the sound better from the Android phone. It was just more present, more alive. Also, the battery life on the Windows Tablet was poor...

Lately I've been experimenting with a Raspberry Pi 2 running Runeaudio, using either the Android phone or an ipad Mini connected wirelessly to the Pi 2 to select music...

Interesting.
Is the audio from your Galaxy being enhanced by any Eq. or other effects to sound better?
And - what bit-rate & resolution do you get between Galaxy > iDSD?

Re. Battery life on the tablet -
Can an OTG cable be used with a (Windows) device, to both power it snd source the USB, the same as for an Android device?

Re. Your Raspberry Pi -
What apps do you use to remote control it?

And what type of audio out interface spec. are you using on the Raspberry Pi -side?
I remember seeing some nice hi-resolution stereo CODEC piggyback boards somewhere but cannot remember if they're for the Pi or Arduino, or both.

Re. Battery life on the tablet -
Can an OTG cable be used with a (Windows) device, to both power it snd source the USB, the same as for an Android device? Dell makes a special cable that allows you to charge the Dell Venue 8 Pro and source the USB at the same time. I don't know if it works with other Windows 8 tablets. With the Galaxy S4, however, most standard OTG cables will not power the phone and enable you to use the DAC at the same time. You need a special cable. See DanBa's post #6560 in this forum, p. 438. He's the real expert on these things.

Re. Your Raspberry Pi -
What apps do you use to remote control it? With Runeaudio, you control it from any web browser from any device - iPad, Android Phone, PC, etc. Just type in the ip address of your Pi. Of course, that's pretty much all you can do when using the Runeaudio distribution on the Pi --there's no GUI or anything. JRiver has a beta application that works more like a traditional application within a Pi GUI.

And what type of audio out interface spec. are you using on the Raspberry Pi -side?
I remember seeing some nice hi-resolution stereo CODEC piggyback boards somewhere but cannot remember if they're for the Pi or Arduino, or both. My iDSD is hooked up to a USB port on the Pi. There are no drivers or other hardware involved. There is a relatively cheap DAC add-on for the Raspberry Pi called Hifiberry DAC+, which eliminates the need for a separate DAC. I haven't tried it so I can't comment on the sound quality, but I think others here on Head Fi have used it and like it.

I can now confirm that Fiio E7 works with both Moto G and Nexus 7 2013

 

I have no idea why I couldnt get it to work previously, but suddenly it all just started working.

 

Playing through Spotify extreme quality using E7, and can tweak the treble/bass with E7

 

I'm stoked :D
