Android phones and USB DACs - Page 477

With my previous phone (S3, Boeffla kernel) it worked flawlessly.

OK I got it working now. The solution was simple - I need to close Neutron Player in the task manager, then connect the DAC, then restart Neutron.


If a DAC is connected while Neutron is running, even in the background, it will crash. Problem solved. Looking forward to my Musical Fidelity V90 which will arrive today...

This thread is hard to manage. I'll just ask here in case anybody has studied it more then me.

I have a LG G3, and I want a DAC that doesn't need a special player. This is the part I'm having trouble finding. 

The FAQ in the first post, and trying to search relevant information in this thread, I can't find anything regarding this. 


I want to use Google Play all access (using the "Play Music" app). 

Is this possible with a usb DAC? 


I was thinking LG G3 -> otg cable -> Dragon Fly 1.2 -> Play Music app


Will this work? I can put my phone on either 4.x or 5.x Android.

So I just got the Note 5 and it plays HiRes music natively.


I streamed flac files all the way up to 24/196 from my router, downloaded a couple and (outside of a couple download artifacts) plays perfectly in every player I tried.


I'm listening straight through the headphone jack with my Grado GH1's and it sounds pleasant enough - before critical listening, at least. The HiRes download played through Google Play easily beats the MP3 streamed through the same app.


I'll have to delve into this feature a little more later...

Hi folks,


I need a suggestion please. My Musical Fidelity V90 DAC cannot be connected straight from my Smartphone via USB OTG. It remains silent.


Now I am looking for a DAC/Converter that works with Android devices and has SPDIF OUT / coax or optical.


So the plan is: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 -> USB-DAC->SPDIF OUT -> Musical Fidelity V90 DAC.


Any suggestions ? Any of the HifimeDIY products worth considering ?
