I can't say really - there is no display on the E18 to show the sample rate.

All I can say is: I have successfully played HD audio (24/192) files on my Smartphone with FiiO OTG and files played on the FiiO.

I do not know if that means anything, not sure what happens with the signal at the USB port...

Hey there zachgraz,

 

It was a pleasure to meet you today :)

 

Where is a good place to get HD (24/192) music? I could try it out on the Note 3 + E18.

Welcome at Head-Fi, Joey !

 

The peasure was all mine !

 

I am not using HD files myself but I have just tested one file for another forum member:

Poweramp does'nt play it but VLC player for example does.

Note 3's stock music player can play HD files! (even though I don't use them myself).

So, what do you think is cheapest phone than can support E18? I was looking on devices with USB OTG and cheapest seems to be older Nokia Phones. Something like used Nokia 603 is still fine phone and in combination with E18 you are around 250$ in total.

 

@JamesFIIO: Do you think, you can test E18 with some of these older Nokia phones, that should support USB OTG?

Used Samsung S3 or HTC One maybe? Some smartphone that support OTG USB may not work with the new E18 as well... I remember James mention it last time... He said there are some that will not work

Chipest solution?

The dream would be one of the Samsung Android player, like the Galaxy 3.6, or 4.0, 5.0.

All this player has similar hardware, comparable with the old Galaxy S.

The official version on these players are Android 2.3.6.

None of these devices has the USB OTG functionality, but several of them have developers on xda who brought the CyanogenMod on them (especially on 5.0 and 4.0).

It will be very interesting to test whether one of these player will be able to recognize the E18 with an appropriate rom and/or kernel.
I have already opened a thread on xda, but I have not received many responses.
