Sorry, I don't know.

 

It is not easy for a third-party developer or modder to modify a USB host driver because he doesn't have all the information on the implemented USB host controller, a hardware component.

That's a bad news. In any case, thank you very much for your support! ;)

To DanBa: thanks for the information!

Yes, Zucchi, is a bad news to hear that our phone can not handle the E18.

 

Today I made a test with the trial version of USB Audio Player Pro on my Galaxy Nexus (that is reported compatible): now the sound comes out, but is crappy!

I don't know what it is, but the app has no many settings and nothing change.

Perhaps the processor is not enough to make the things work correctly?

 

Now is time to look for another smartphone: I'm not so happy, because my money is not so much...

I'm in your same situation. I don't think that the processor is the matter: my galaxy S2 works very well after two years.

Now i haven't got so much money to spend in a new smartphone so i listen high quality music only with my pc.

But if you would buy a new phone, take a look at amazon, where you can find a galaxy S3... It wouldn't cost too much.

Good luck!

Weird! 

 

Do you reset your Galaxy Nexus?

 

If the sound is still crappy after a reset, I think you could contact Davy, the developer of USB Audio Player PRO (info@audio-evolution.com).

May be, it's due to the trial version, because USB Audio Player PRO is the best SQ music player to my ears:

Did you see this review comment?

 

"Works. Needs some ui work though I used a Moto G on android 4.4.2, an otg cable, and the Meridian Explorer DAC. To avoid some loud distortion, I had to disable software volume control and use mixer under settings instead. It would be better to have an option to map the in app volume slider and side volume control buttons to hardware. Best would be to do this by default on the explorer and geekout File browsing or forced refresh would be helpful. I added songs, but couldn't see them until I rebooted. Now its finding flac and mp3 OK."

 

Maybe you have this problem - worth a try anyway...

Might be because most android devices are capped at 16bit/44.1 or 48 kHz. so 24/96 and 24/192 are both downsampled to 16/44.11 or 48.

The E18 is limited to 24/96.

I forgot to add in the last post that for the test, I used an iBasso DX50 and a Westone W4R.

The Ibasso is also Android based? Does it have the limitations removed, so it doesn't downsample?

I was in the same sittuation with ya. Then I followed DanBa's instruction and it worked fine after all. 

Please follow these steps: Download your USB Audio Player ( trial or pro , they're fine ) but don't turn it on -> Connect E18 -> turn on the Player program --> wait for 2 or 3s and then it will work flawlessly :D

USB Audio Player Pro bypasses the internal audio driver all together, so no downsampling at all.

DX50 runs on a simplified Android and iBasso uses it own special audio driver, so no downsampling. But that's no the point as DX50 doesn't support USB DAC at all, so the previous comment must be pointed at '24/96 vs 24/192' rather than E18 related.

Has anyone heard anything more on if Google will update the Nexus 5 to work with the E18?

What do you mean with "reset"?

I turned off and on the phone: the sound now is better, but remains in the background a noise similar to the magnetic cartridge of a turntable.

I had disabled software volume control but nothing changes.

What exactly you done?

Press and hold the Power button for 8-10 seconds to reset the device (my device is a Galaxy Note 3) in order to close (possibly too much) running applications.

I think he connected his FiiO E18 BEFORE starting the USB Audio Player PRO app.
