Read a bit more before asking for everything.

 

But yes it can do that, you need a USB OTG (On-the-go) cable/adapter (check Ebay) aswell. Also the DAC MUST function without aftermarket drivers. The Fiio E17 will most probably (90% sure) not work! It has a bug in its USB descriptor, a few devices suffer from this.

 

There are many many many DAC/amps that do work. just note the cables are annoying, there is no one cable solution.

You will have to read up on what sound signature you want, and what your functional requirements are - your going to read a lot. 

 

cheers. 

 

and btw it helps to mention your gear, budget and music taste.
