A list of standard USB DAC reportedly interworking with a custom Android-powered tablet Asus/Google Nexus 7:

 

custom Google Nexus 7 > digital USB audio out >> USB OTG cable (micro-A plug inserted in the Nexus 7) >> standard USB DAC >> amp >> headphones

Thanks, I've never owned an android device but it should be fairly straightforward.

 

Trying to decide on the Nexus 7 or 10, and whether or not to replace my iPhone with a Nexus 4.

Hi DanBa, I meant that Terminal Emulator gives an error. It did create a file named f but it was blank. There didn't seem to be any output.

That cable doesnt work with a S3. I have tried 2 different ones and both didn't fit the port on the phone.

Sorry for the misunderstanding!

 

May be, you should reset your S3.

In standard USB audio, a PC / Mac / Galaxy S3 / Galaxy Note 2 / Nexus 7 operating as a USB host (i.e. a USB A-device) interworks with a USB DAC operating as a USB peripheral (i.e. a USB B-device).
 
The Galaxy S3 / Galaxy Note 2 / Nexus 7 is a USB On-The-Go device.
A USB OTG device can act as a USB host or as a USB peripheral.
 
Simply put, a USB OTG device like a Galaxy S3 / Galaxy Note 2 / Nexus 7 can act acts as
. a USB peripheral when a Micro-B plug is inserted [regular cable]
. a USB host when a Micro-A plug is inserted ["OTG cable"]

Well you can just call me sad panda.

It kinda looks like the right cable will need to be built all custom-like. Not much of a market for this one, it seems.

Edit: Ok, this one looks good, though: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Micro-b-male-Mini-b-male-data-cable-lead-adaptor-/251163641425

I believe this only refers to dedicated docs.  I hope I'm wrong though.  

 

In the mean time, S3 users can use the Siyah kernel to have dual boot.  Use Touchwiz for USB audio, your favorite CM10 based ROM for everything else.

I believe it's a different way of talking about the same thing. If a dock does USB audio, I think the phone's functionality will be identical to what we need to use a cable direct to a DAC for USB audio.

What we need is a smart person to build us a custom version of CM10 for the interim while that patch gets accepted to the mainline. Someone who has made custom CM builds before has just agreed to give it a whirl for me smily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gif Anyone else have an AT&T GS3 (i747) ?

I am getting VERY VERY confused now ! ! !

On one end, I understood that Samsung had implémented "standard USB" in The S3 and that quite Many DAC are reported "working fine" With the S3 / Note 2. So things serms as simple as getting thé correct USB câble ...

But i read here many technical geeks strff about " modified kernel", dual boot " to use Touchwiz for USB audio", CM10 patch.... ? ? ?

So.... Is the "stock" Galaxy S3 compatible or NOT With some portable DAC (like raysuel's Intruder) ?


And some other questions :

- What is the purpose of those modifications (kernel, patch.. ) ?

- can 24/192 kHz be outputed from the S3 to the DAC or are we limited to ridiculous values such as 16/48 kHz ?

- does the SOLO -dB DAC work with the S3 ( it's main marketing is iPhone, but the new versioni also has à standard USB imput for PC & Mac)


Thank in advance

Yes, the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 on stock software work with the USB DACs in DanBa's lists.

Custom kernels and the patches/mods you're talking about add new features over and above what the stock Samsung software and kernels has.

Is there a custom kernel to make the galaxy note 2 work with the fiio e17?
