The DFR doesn't light up with the S3...


Download the free USB Host Check app from Google Play and run it to check for USB compatibility. Also check if it works with UAPP/HibyMusic

The DFR doesn't work with UAPP. The usb didn't recognize the DFR. Can i get the Galaxy S3 to work or will i have to pick between the two?

You may be able to get a custom ROM that allows you use USB audio devices. I seem to recall that there was a specific order in which you had to connect USB devices and power up the S3 in order to get them to work properly as USB OTG wasn't officially supported.

 

I suggest a search around the XDA-developers site for the answer to this one.

Same here, my s3 is not recognising my opus#11 as well. USB debugging on also no use

How about using the powered hub trick?

 

Connect your peripherals on a powered hub. Connect powered hub thru your OTG cable to phone.

That's weird, DFR is listed as compatible on UAPP webpage. Are You sure the USB OTG cable You're using actually works?

My AT&T Galaxy S3 (SGH-I747) running CyanogenMod 13.0 connects and lights up magenta but won't natively play through the DFR. UAPP works perfectly though.

I have a Freedompop Galaxy S3 (SPH-L710) coming soon so I can test the stock ROM.

Yes, probably OTG cable problem. S3 have geat compatibility w/ lots of DAC/amps. It's the S4 which have issues.

That must be the problem. The DFR doesn't draw enough power from the S3.

I don't want to carry a USB hub around, which is why I went with the DFR - for portability.

I was able to connect it directly to my LG V10, but that has a bigger battery.

Well, now I know.

You can get an OTG cable with a tail for power input, you could use this with a small USB battery stick to provide power. Still not an ideal portable setup but more portable than having a full-blown USB hub.

 

At some point  (I think it was Android 4.4) Samsung managed to break the USB audio support on some variants of the S3.

I was able to test that a Galaxy S5 can power a DFR.

Is anyone here using a Galaxy S4 for the same?

It's a shame, because the S3 is so small, it was a great fit from a stackability perspective. I'm sure the S3 does fine with other DACs that have their own batteries.
