I wanted to get a DAC for my Note 3 to use with the fiio e12DIY...
I have a USA Note 3 Verizon, SM-N900V. I use this with the following DACs: FiiO E7, E10, E18, HRT microStreamer. All of these DACs work perfectly with all elements of audio out of the Note 3. This includes various music apps like the stock app, as well as Google Play Music, Poweramp, Neutron, and also USB Audio Player Pro.
I also have a FiiO E12 amp, and often times hook the HRT microstreamer to the E12, or will have the line out of the E18 to the E12. The E18 has two 3.5mm output plugs on the top of it (the top is the end with the volume dial on it): the center plug is headphone out, and the one off to the side is the line out (also functions as a line in if you want to use the E18 as an analog amp. this feature is automatic based on whether the USB DAC is in use or not).
Above is a picture of the FiiO E18 running off my Note 3, and powering my HD700 directly.
This next picture, above, is the E18 running off my Note 3, and then I utilized the line in/out port on the E18 to send the signal out to my E12, which is then amplifying the signal to the HD700s, as shown.
I hope this helps.
