SAmsung galaxy note 2 - Page 15

post #211 of 471

Let me rephrase that the following setups are OK:

 

Samsung Galaxy Note2 > digital USB audio out >> VentureCraft microUSB to microUSB cable >> latest VentureCraft Go-Dap X >> headphones

 

or

 

Samsung Galaxy Note2 > digital USB audio out >> USB OTG adapter cable (i.e. micro-A plug to standard A receptacle USB cable) + "regular" USB cable (i.e. standard-A plug to micro-B plug USB cable) >> latest VentureCraft Go-Dap X >> headphones

Yes they are correct

With new go dap x , less OTG adaptor and less regular USB cable , more simple just micro to micro it's works

As far as I know, the VentureCraft microUSB to microUSB cable is a micro-B plug to micro-B plug USB cable.

It’s impossible to use such a micro-B to micro-B USB cable to connect a dual-role USB OTG device like the Galaxy Note2 to a usual USB DAC.

 
But, a dual-role USB DAC like the VentureCraft Go-Dap X can use the Host Negotiation Protocol (HNP) to switch the USB OTG device from a USB peripheral role (i.e. micro-B plugged OTG device) to a USB host role.
 
"HNP allows the two devices to exchange their host/peripheral roles, provided both are OTG dual-role devices."
 
"The Host Negotiation Protocol (HNP) allows the host function to be transferred between two directly connected OTG devices and eliminates the need for a user to switch the cable connections in order to allow a change in control of communications between the devices"

Hey guys,

 

How would you compare the SQ on the note2 to the pmps out there nowdays (e.g. ipod mini)?

FYI, I have decided to make my own short cable and have ordered and received some micro and mini usb connector to

hook up my ODAC to. Also bought some braided sleeve to make it look nicer.

 

Below is a pic of the cable hooked up and wiring diagram of each connector.

I dont think that the VentureCraft Go-Dap X is an OTG device since it has the usb B receptacle(female connector). The correct term for it would be an SRP-capable peripheral-only B-device and it would use the ADP(attach device protocol) espescially  since the note 2 is a mobile communication device to invoke SRP(session request protocol).

See photo below for the difference.

I didn’t say that the VentureCraft Go-Dap X is a USB OTG device per se.
I said it’s a dual-role USB DAC. It can act as 
a USB peripheral when connecting to a PC / Mac / Android device
or
a USB host when connecting to an iDevice
via different ports.
post #218 of 471

Ah...ok, I get you. Dual-role as in supporting both camps, android and also idevices.

 

The reason why I pointed out the difference is that it might be the reason why the venturecraft

microUSB to microUSB cable not working with your standard usb DAC but works with

the Go-Dap X because it's an SRP-capable peripheral-only B-device.

 

If we were able to get another device that is SRP-capable and test it on the note 2 with

the venturecraft cable then the reason should be clear.

Quick question. Is the Note 2 still permanently suffering from issues with output levels? I'm using the IE8s, and may upgrade to full customs at some point. If it is going to be problematic, then I'll stick to my iPhone 4S.

Nevermind. Link was already posted :)

Nobody tried ACID SoundMod? I'm not an expert but it is an improvement. I flashed it yesterday in both my Note 2 and my Nexus 10. I would say is a must.

Do I need to root my Note to use this? And what does flashing mean?

Yes, you have to root, but I would highly recommend it even if you are not going to flash (install) this plugin. Many people claims that there are disadvantaged, but for me they are negligible compared with the advantages. I don't find any sense in no rooting anymore. If you want more details about anything of these just let me know.

I just would like to know if anybody has tried it as I'm pretty new in this world and would like a second opinion to verify. In my opinion the increase in quality is awesome.

I just got it rooted... Im so glad nothing serious happend xDDD

SOOO... which audiomods are available?

 

Edit: how do I flash the ACID audio engine?Got the rom manager + clockwork installed, but I always get into recovery system. Nothing happens and I have no choice to reboot the system.

Ok, I got it working after some up and downs. Just installed the redpkill kernel with that scoobydoo audio thing. Let's see...

I am so glad you decided to go with root in the end! Well, just to let you know: It is really really difficult to brick a Samsung phone. Soft-brick is not that difficult, but really easy to repair. Let me know how that redpkill kernel goes!! And if you don´t like it, it is as easy as flashing another kernel. I´d recommend you to flash a custom recovery such as TWRP and perform a NAND backup.
