(BTW I tried search & these questions have not been addressed directly)
So I have been on a 2 month search for the BEST sound quality for my Acura Mdx. Just had a serious upgrade to my audio system and it sounds fantastic, so now i need the source audio to sound great as well.
I am heavily invested in Google Music & have some Flac Lossless Audio loaded to my phone. For a while have just been going Aux out from My Galaxy S3 >> Fiio e11 >>Aux in to Car stereo. It sounds pretty great, but when I play a CD, there is no comparison.
I will be using this device ENTIRELY for my Vehicle, no headphones.
From a video I watched, it looks as if the Galaxy S3 will work with the Fiio E7, but I have some questions.
Help me understand the technology here. I know that a digital audio file from the S3's USB port is being sent to the E7 & then it is converting it to analog.
By using a 3.5mm analog cable from the E7 into my AUX in of my car stereo - wouldn't that be degrading the signal the same way as headphones out from my phone? How is this different? Isn't it the same? Is this sending digital signal the same way an iPod is without car dash controls?
(Current Setup) S3 Digital Audio File>>>>S3 Analog Headphone Jack Out>>E11>>Analog Aux in Car Stereo
(Proposed Setup) S3 Digital Audio File>>>>S3 USB Digital Out >>>USB Digital in E7>>Analog out E7>>Analog Aux in Car Stereo
1. I just want the highest quality audio from my Android device to my car speakers, will the e7 accomplish this? Will I be getting the full benefit from the device?
2. Also, can the E7 be charged and played at the same time?
3.Will it charge my S3 and stream audio at the same time?
4. Can i stream Pandora & Google Music or Only music loaded to the phone?
Thanks so much for all your guys help on this.
