The Lightning CCK cable is similar to a USB OTG cable for an Android device. You will need the CCK cable and a USB cable to connect the CCK to a DAC instead of a camera..

I must have missed that you wanted a DAC with a lightning socket. Just be aware of the Astrapi's limitations on driving headphones. If all you need is to drive reasonably sensitive IEMs then this might be all you need.

I am kinda new to the equipment here..I bought a FiiO E11 3 years ago and I have now purchased a Hifiman HE400s and want to upgrade the audio quality of the amp so I don’t lose any of the soundstage. The problem I have is, when I go portable my source is my galaxy s6 edge. I have tried to read back through this thread, but I cant find anything saying whether or not the USB OTG will work with this phone? I would prefer to bypass the DAC on the phone, I don’t like to amp an amped signal…

 

I will be upgrading to whatever the newest phone there is in June, but I will have stay with Samsung because I have their Smartwatch and will lose functionality with another brand.

 

I have heard the new s7 will have an upgraded DAC/AMP because of their affiliation with Tidal??

 

Would the E18 give me the sound quality I want with my current phone or the s7 by just driving the amp from the headphone jack? (if I cant use the OTG) Would the E12 be better sound quality?

 

Thanks in advance!

Terry

I just received an E18 and hooked it up to my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (stock Verizon model).

Everything works great via USB OTG using the supplied cable right out of the box, no tweaking necessary. Playing files saved on the phone and streaming apps (Spotify and Google Play Music in my case) both work fine.

Just a quick compatibility check in case anyone was worried about the Note 5.

Is anyone using this with Philips Fidelio X2?

post #2035 of 2059
I am, x2 don't need it. Don't seem to improve much.

@JamesFiiO you guys might want to update the spec page for the E18. It was working with my G3 on Lollipop, and also now on Marshmallow

Hey man are you getting massive RF interference with your g3? my e18 is useless unless my g3is on airplane mode

Yeah the E18 has a major design flaw in terms of RF interference on the amp section. I have the E12A connected to the E18 as well though (better amp than the one in the E18, and no RF interference)
