I just flashed CM9/AOSP and then flashed SiyahKernel again. After connect e7 and s2 with OTG, s2 recognize the e7 and e7 also recognize s2 also.

 

Hope this information can help.

 

"We just need 3 base things:

1st: USB Host support in Android kernel.

2nd. USB audio driver, in kernel, or compiled as a module.

3rd. Some logic to switch to USB audio card, or back to internal one."

"In ICS, I've done it this way, with audio library and tinyalsa library." [tsynik]
 
 
The developer should do that.

for the GSIII and others to work with something that exceeds the current limit, but has its own power source, there are 3 options.

1. the device tells the GSIII that it has its own power when they are connected, during the signalling used to negotiate device type, speed of connection etc. it does this with a series of logic level signals on the power line. this logic signal may or may not be hardwired and thus not available as a software update

2. you supply power via an external powered hub.

3. you fluke it, the device works anyway despite exceeding the limit, perhaps because during start up it isnt exceeding the power limit, or it lies to the host. this connection may be 'fixed' in an update at any time if problems arise; or the device exceeds the power limit by whatever tolerance is allowed for an extensive length of time and is found out. the phone refuses the connection.

but I only mentioned the FIIO in passing, if at all, because its listed in Kojaku's screen shot posted a few pages back (at least I think it was his) and this confirmed my thoughts as to why some were working and some were not (the 100 mA not 100 mW power limit), for EXACTLY the same reasons that devices work with ipad or not.  this is part of the USB protocol, these connections and their power budget need to be negotiated and all things need to be in place for it to work, otherwise connecting your phone to a high power device could overheat or even kill your phone, or at the very least run the battery down in no time.

Ok, thank you. That's why I was asking, not stating. I didn't understand to the full extent that you did so I tried to see how I did. I don't need to do anything. I understand it well enough for my purposes. The thing about how you state things is just that it constantly sounds hypothetical and too involved for no reason. I can't comment on how accurate what you're saying is but it just sounds like you're blabbering information. That's how it is on the receiving end anyway. But sorry, that's besides the point and just my opinion based on my position relative to your thoughts.

In any case, I'd still like to hear if you can definitively answer or not, since you know this in and out, whether there is a legitimate way for the E17 to naturally work with the SIII or any other future phones of a similar design.

Definitely agree there. =)

I don't follow the recent fashion with smartphones and tablets, they're all just huge touchscreens with a very weak laptop inside.  10 years ago mobile phones looked different and had more creative designs, they were more cool and unique.

According to this post, the SQ of the ODAC, a bus-powered USB DAC, is better using an external linear power supply:

 

"I just added an external linear power supply to the ODAC and the performance improvement is immediate. No longer sounds strained and now the soundstage is nice and wide (I am using speakers not headphones). Overall 'clinical' quality is still there but certainly could be due to other factors. So power is definitely a factor in my case."

"I used this usb extension." [5V power injector for USB cable]

The problem w/ using a laptop/netbook is you're still carry your phone around don't you?  So if you use a brick amp and a brick DAC plus phone = 3 devices.  Adding a notebook is 4.  Tell you what, build me a phone that's as good sounding as my brick amp, brick DAC and that's as powerful as my Thinkpad and I'll be your first customer.  wink.gif  I can always use the integrated DAC in my Leckerton UHA6S w/ my Nokia and kill every smartphone out there but I'm looking for more obviously by trying to bridge the gap with my desktop rig.

So... 5V USB versus 5V external = "now the soundstage is nice and wide", hmm...

1. Start an interest check / voting thread on how many people want the DX100 to make phone calls, then send an email to iBasso.

 

2. Glue a Sony Z1070 and Sony Xperia S together.

 

Just ideas.

Just ideas.

get large case,

get large phone android phone with CM7 + USB Host + ALSA 

get ODAC

shanghai all of it into one case, bypass usb port altogether solder the connections to the inside of the devices USB connection, and add a bypass and small transformer from the internal battery directly to the odac.

 

DOMINATE.

Yeah but I wanted good ones and I said 'as good as' not 'worse' what I have.  tongue.gif  DX100 has enough issues already w/o adding a phone.

Google anounced Nexus Q as Android's media center,

is also the solution for android's sound quality?

Afaik thickness and low battery life seem to be caveats with all the top-flights, Colorfly C4, HM-801, DX100.

 

Haven't heard the Z1070 but if the Xperia S sound and reviews are any indication it should sound more exciting than a Wolfson chip or Hifiman.

 

IIRC you used an iPhone before, there is the V-moda VAMP as well.

And Hisound Studio V, but that has its own issues.
