Lots of DACs allow the playback device to also handle volume (and even EQ in some cases), depends on how they are set up.

ok tx. I intend to use the note 2 with the ibasso d12 dac  and ibasso p4 amp. Can anyone advise the best way to set this up to maximise sq and bypass the samsungs dac and amp.tx.

go read the thread "android USB dac" , and find danbas list of compatile USB Dac for Samsung galaxy note 2

tx. yes i have a compatible amp and dac. My  confusion is that im looking for pure digital audio out of the note but it sounds like the notes amp is not being bypassed and will limit the sound quality of the system as a whole even with my seperate amp and dac. I was hoping this would be an alternative to the dx100 but im wondering about that now.

If the notes amp is still affecting volume levels through the seperate dac and amp then the sound signal cant be bypassing the notes amp. or am i wrong there? and if the amp is not bypassed how can one tell if the dac is being bypassed?

The volume is being adjusted digitally, just as on a computer that allows volume adjustment when sending digital audio to a separate DAC/amp.

Hi everyone,
I see there is no micro USB to micro USB OTG cable in the market currently,
(well, I do see one but it is out of stock)
and it is quite inconvenience to use 2 cables.
Anyone has any nice idea?

The Note 2 is the best Android phone available at present for anyone who can handle the size, I have no doubt about it (and I've basically owned them all or had review units of them). In fact, providing one can handle the size I think the Note 2 is straight up the best smartphone available right now.

 

Wow, have been searching/waiting for a low output impedance android device for months :D

Is it really around 2ohm o.o? Or 2,9 :P?  Dont want beo too nitpicky but might as well go with the Meizu MX then. =)

But thanks anyways.

 

The Hakshop one works, I think they have sold out presently, but you could get them to put you on a wait list I guess.

Search for "USB Micro OTG" on Amazon, and you'll find some USB Micro Male to USB A Female adapters that you can use your existing DAC USB cable with. I was thinking about trying this one because it's listed for the Galaxy SIII.

Right before it is sold out, I sent an email to them as they didn't provide shipping to my place,

but it seems they are all busy in the CES, I have received nothing by now. Still, good to hear that it works. Thanks

They would all work (probably).

Pick the cheapest one will be fine.

But putting 2 cables together is not a good idea, which I have tried before.

the plugs are huge and it looks strange when you take it out.

Sometimes they even separate themselvesconfused_face.gif

Just my 2cents

I will buy these ASAP if someone can confirm the low output impedance of 2ohm.. Didnt see any measurements.
