The Ultimate Digital Portable Solution

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

 Hi guys. As you can see i'm new to this forum... I'm a car/home audio audiophile. I'm new to the portable audio world. By reading various threads i've learned that a mobile phone with usb audio-out capabilities should allow me to use a portable setup like this :  Phone--->DAC--->Amp. However, i own a Nokia 808 Pureview phone and i like it...despite the OS problems etc. I have an ipod touch and a ipod classic... but i'm planning to sell them due to lack of usb audio out.

 

Thinking about the possibilities, i am considering getting myself an android mobile phone and use it as a portable media player in order to have that usb audio thing....

As a beginner i'm considering to get myself a portable dac+amp device for my future android phone.... After some research i came across this tiny device that can be the ultimate portable solution for me :

 

The Centrance DACPort. But as i navigate i learn that there are other devices out there that can compete with this guy in terms of SQ (When used as a dac/amp combo). Can you suggest others?

 

Thank you 

 

 

Thank you in advance (Sorry for my imperfect english...)

The DACPort is designed to work with a laptop or desktop and won't work with a phone - it draws too much current.  There are a number of portable DACs that will work with at least some Android phones.  There's a substantial thread on that on this site.  Take a look there and see what you think.

I'm planning to create a costum usb cable....which has the 2 internal power cables hooked to a portable power supply and 2 two data transfer cables hooked to the phone usb out system.... so basically the amp gets it's power from elsewhere.....

 At least i think it's doable....
