Android devices compatible with USB DAC Audio-out

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I couldn't find such a list anywhere so I wanted to create a resource for people to post android devices that can run USB DAC. So far, I was able to get Nexus 7 tablet to run my Practical Devices XM6, and a cheap-o USB audio plug-and-play device. To do this, I had to:

 

Buy an OTG USB cable

Root and unlock the device

Install kernel

http://rootzwiki.com/topic/30129-kernel-nexus-7-cifsnfsusb-otg-gpu-oc-cpu-oc-072912/

 

You have to restart the device with the OTG cable and the DAC hooked up to the nexus in order for sound to route through the DAC.

There is a thread about Android devices and USB audio - perhaps add your information to that thread? It already has a lot of information on the Galaxy S3 and which USB DACs work out of the box with the S3, and some information on the N7 too.

Yes, I saw that thread but the information is very fragmented. The info is spread out over many posts. I was hoping we can have all the info in one place, and maybe compile it into a wiki.

Not a bad idea. Perhaps I should maintain the first post in the other thread with the information and links to relevant posts? It's all there, perhaps just updating the first post would help?

 

(or alternately just do it here, I'm not fussed)

Is this the thread about Android devices and USB audio?

No, although we do spend quite a bit of time in there discussing that too, since the S3 is a bit part of that.

 

This is the other thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/595071/android-phones-and-usb-dacs
