sigh ...oh well apples reign is coming to an end hopefully some of these developers reach out to the android users ....I really wanted this to work...thanks I will read through some of those threads

Dark Helmet, thanks for correcting me!

I must have confused this with the issue of Wolfson versus non-Wolfson chip in the different versions of S3.

But I would refer interested parties to the abovementioned thread for more details. DanBa is definitely more knowledgeable than me in this.

Just for additional confirmation, I ended up listening to the Glacier from my North American GS3 for several hours yesterday while traveling (using the Hakshop cable, no less), and it worked a charm! No problems whatsoever.

Yes, I have learnt a lot by lurking around in the forums last year.  But it's a great community, and it's great to share relevant information with everyone.

And this is my first post with multiple quotes in one reply!  Sorry that I was replying in multiple replies previously, as I didn't know that it's that simple to include multiple quotes.

 

Happy listening!

I ve been playing mine for 2 days. This amps has a shortest decay i have ever listened so far. The bass is deep with a good attack. Highs is very smooth and the mids is a bit forwards and very clean sounding. At first...i feel like the mids presented with a bit of artificial sounding. But the more i listen to it...the more i realised that this amp is a true king of dynamic amp. Sound is smooth and very neutral with a tight solid bass. Though i expect the bass can extend a bit more but now i becoming in love with this amp already. Hope is getting better and better.

I tested so far using my ipod classic... i did try using my ak100 (unmodded) just for comparison...i think glacier is better with ipod. Still waiting my otg cable to try my s3. Hope sound is good.

Anyone tested with the HTC One? Does the DAC section work?

I read somewhere mentioning it works for HTC & Samsung Android devices.
