Sorry in advance for posting without a pic, but I can now confirm that the hakshop micro usb to micro usb host cable works as a fantastic single cable solution for those using android tablets or phones to output to the Glacier. I'll post a pic later tonight smily_headphones1.gif

Google is not really helping me with my question, so I thought I'd ask here. Can the S3 play 24/96 FLAC files? I'm using Poweramp, and it plays the file, says it's 96 kHz, but is it dumbing it down to 16 bit, or is it true 24bit file playback?

It is playing it at 16bit.

Cool.  Thanks for the quick reply.  May as well convert some of my 24/96 files and save some space on my SD card.

Actually the OP is inaccurate, unless he is referring the the non-US version of the phone:

Of course I was referring to the International one, this thread was posted at the announcement of the International S3.

Can anyone tell me if the volume on the phone is supposed to be fixed when a DAC is connected- I have a Note 2 with the D-Zero and the phone volume still works (maxed out sounds harsh though)? I checked the "audio output mode" under Accessory in settings to no effect.

 

And thanks to NZ for the good video "how-to"- well done.

You cannot connect an external USB DAC on Cyanogenmod ROMs at present.

What player are you using? Some USB DACs will allow the playback source to control volume and EQ if the player supports it. PowerAMP does for example, and generally that is an asset if you want to use any EQ, but not always - with my Pico and the LCD-2 I get distortion if the volume on the phone is all the way up (sounds fine turned down a bit on the phone side though).

This is going to sound ignorant but what makes the S3 so great, I've owned it since it came out (I535) and I don't think it sounds that good at all.

 

 

EDIT: what rom/kernal app makes it sound good? I'm just running nightlies with the stock kernal

People are using Siyah or Perseus kernels with audio tweaks.

Bummer confused.gif but ohh well, still going to buy it, probably just use touchwiz, or AOKP if it works.
