Were you ever able to figure out how to bypass the DAC on the S3?? Would love to do that!!
I was able to get the digital audio out of the S3 very easily. I got an OTG cable (Micro-B to Type A) that when inserted into the S3 puts it in host mode. It will then output the digital signal through the USB port without me doing anything. I then use a Type A to Mini-B connector plugged into my iBasso D10. The cable connection is a little messy but right now I don't know of any Micro-B to Mini-B OTG cable that has been shown to work. I expect this will happen in time.
There may be Micro-B to Mini-B connectors out there but, in order for it to put the S3 into host mode, a couple of the pins on the Micro-B most be shorted out. There is a video on YouTube you can see on this if you're interested.
The two connectors I use are available from Monoprice (9724 and 5446) for around $5 including shipping. Please give us a report on the Leckerton.
