Meier Audio Daccord - Page 37

post #541 of 579

Thank you very much! Indeed I will do my research before any purchase.

While I don't know much about Android I'd be careful with USB-powered devices: either they won't work because the USB port on the Android device does not give enough power or they might suck your battery empty.

 

As @Theogenes mentioned your best bet might be simple USB 1.1 audio devices that support 24/96 (i.e. those that work on Windows without drivers).

Dear friends,

 

most android systems are indeed very limited in their ability to connect to an USB-audio-device. My own tablet (Lenovo Yoga 8) works fine with the PCSTEP (USB 1.1 audio device) but I haven't been able yet to get the DACCORD running. According to CMEDIA Linux systems will work with the DACCORD using ALSA drivers. Android has a Linux kernel, as it seems, doesn't support high-resolution transfer yet. Google is said to be working on a new Android version that should support USB-2.0-audio though (currently called Android L). Let's hope for the best.

 

Cheers

Thanks Jan! Yeah, apparently Google jumped the gun a bit on declaring USB audio support in Android L; they've since retracted that and said they're still working on it. At the moment, Android L is actually considerably worse for USB audio support than a lot of previous Android devices (like Samsungs, for example) that had built their own USB support into their ROMs. 

 

To @plakat's point, you might end up needing to get a powered USB hub to make some DACs compatible. Don't know if the Daccord is one or not, but that's been a recurring them in the Android Phones and USB DACs thread.

Dear Theogenes,

 

let's hope Google will get thinks working properly soon.

 

As for the current consumption of the USB-input of the DACCORD, it is approximately 80 mA. Normally that shouldn't be a problem with any tablet.

 

Some USB-DACs have a considerable higher current consumption since they also use USB-power for the DA-section. This is not the case with the DACCORD. It uses a normal mains-supply for this section.

 

On my Windows-based netbook the DACCORD works like a charme. People have not reported any major problems with the USB-port thusfar.

 

Cheers

Great to know, Jan, than you for the reply! Any idea if the Daccord would work with a USB audio compatible Android device?
post #548 of 579

I honestly can't tell. According to C-Media it should work with a proper ALSA driver. Be noted that Apple-systems work well with the DACCORD without additional drivers needed. So let's hope the same thing will happen with Android.

 

Cheers

Jan, before you leave, can you tell me what the heck a "corda" is anyway? lol

Thanks Jan! I might just try it tomorrow if I get a moment and try to clear it up once and for all wink.gif

Corda comes from the italian language and means "strings" like those of a music instrument.

Thanks for all your replies. Well, maybe the solution is to set up sff pc running linux and install wimp app on it. Something like a diy media server? Have you tried something like this?

Very nice! Thanks for explaining :)

post #554 of 579

Wasn't able to test the Daccord with an Android device before shipping it off today, sorry! :(

post #555 of 579

Dear Lakson,

 

sorry, but I don't have a Linux-system myself, so I can't try.

 

Cheers
