Really?

So my android 2.3.4 tablet may enjoy USB/DAC functionality, all I have to do is reroot it to Jelly Bean.

The studio V is essentially a good portable amplifer, with a basic DAC in it, the same as in my Sony gumsticks and the Teclast X19+.

 

The Colorfly CK4 on the other hand, uses the Cirrus flagship DAC afaik, and a basic amplifier section, the opposite. ;)

 

I don't know exactly what the amplifier section of the Studio V is, since it's sanded off to protect intellectual property, I think the DX100 is the same.  Yes, there is always the capacitors, circuit layout, voltage supply, sound synergy etc. too.

Will you still like to buy a portable DAC/AMP for your Android phone, if you have to unplug the DAC and unplug your headphone so you can use the phone?

 

I am not sure if the Jelly Bean can supports MIC through the USB

That could be a problem for some or many I would think.

I Don't quite get it, because if I listen to music with headphones plugged in and someone calls, I can still talk using the MIC on the phone. 

 

I dont get why you wouldnt be able to use the mic on the phone and hear the sound through the dac/amp/speakers/headphone

The USB DAC recommended by Google is a new type of device. It is not compatible with PC or Mac.

Does Ibasso D-zero work with S3?

An Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered device can have both USB audio out modes: standard USB audio out and Android-specific USB audio out.
These features are at the Android kernel level.
 
"Android Open Accessory Protocol 2.0 includes optional support for audio output from an Android device to an accessory. This version of the protocol supports a standard USB audio class interface that is capable of 2 channel 16-bit PCM audio with a bit rate of 44100 Khz. AOA 2.0 is currently limited to this output mode, but additional audio modes may be added in the future.
To enable the audio support, the accessory must send a new USB control request: SET_AUDIO_MODE"

It should be easy to enable standard USB audio out and Android-specific USB audio out on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered device with USB host capability.
 
Let's keep up the pressure on Google and the Android device manufacturers for the standard USB audio out:

I'm not sure if google will support USB Audio host mode.

But I think developers should be able to hack it and get it working.
