Guys, I have a question, please forgive me for being new to this Android / USB DAC setups in advance.

 

 

I've been using my setup a lot, this means inserting/removing my data cable constantly from both my Galaxy S4 and Tralucent DAC.

 

My question is...if I leave the cable connected to the S4 will it drain any unnecessary power sitting like that for hours? I'd like to leave the cable plugged in to reduce the 5-10 times its being switched in/out all day. The S4 is just a music device and there's really no need for it to removed unless needed.

 

Can anyone answer this question for me.  Is the cable actually active or draining power when not connected to the DAC but still the phone?

 

 

 

 

I think if you make sure the music gui is in fact closed ( use any free process checker closer if in doubt )https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.electricsheep.asi&hl=en

 

 

 

That is a beastly screen.

Mine works with volume control  too, though not always.. Try restarting your phone and then opening Hiby right away, no other app like UAPP or Onkyo HF(if you have them installed). It appears that hiby likes exclusivity and causes loging problems to similar apps.

Hey folks. I'm sure this has been answered somewhere but I can't seem to find it.  I'm looking for the "best" app to use on my HTC One M8 for the highest quality playback.  I'm currently using PowerAmp but there is quite a lot of hiss and, frankly, that's very annoying.  I'm finding the quality of the Google Player better to be honest. 

 

Any suggestion?

The hissing is due to DVC. Turn it off in Settings -> Audio -> Advanced Tweaks -> uncheck 'Direct Volume Control' and you should be good.

Maybe you can try hibymusic app. It's a nice app.

Guys, sorry for the mistake, I have fixed the link address to:

 

  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hiby.music&hl=en   (English) or

  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hiby.music  (without language specified)

How well does the Huawei P8 do in terms of sound quality? Does it work well with external USB DACs?
post #6865 of 6866

Confirmed: Korean Version - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SHV-E250L) working with Tralucent DacAmp One.

 

Android Version: 4.4.2

 

USB Audio Pro (paid version) required.

 

Seems to be detected automatically most times on opening USB Audio Pro - if not, rebooting the phone whilst DAC is connected corrects it.

Thanks for that.  I reinstalled the app and unchecked DVC, but there was only a slight improvement.
