If your USB DAC does not work with your Android phone, try this.

Thread Starter 

Okay.

 

I recently got HIFImeDIY Sabre DAC to use it with Galaxy Note 2.

 

First time, my set up was like this.

 

Galaxy Note 2 (Using Neutron player or stock player) -> USB OTG cable -> Sabre DAC -> Headphone.

 

It worked without any problem.

 

Few days later, I removed the launcher that I was using, and returned to stock UI (Touch wiz).

 

I tried to listen to music with the dac, and did not work.

 

Music will just fast forwarding without any sound.

 

I was trying to find the problem for hours. (Try it with other otg cable, different app, connected dac to the desktop, rooted the phone etc etc)

 

While I was searching about that problem,  found someones post regarding the same problem (but with fiio e7, not sabre dac).

 

I tried to think what has changed....and I know it doesn't make sense...but I remembered I removed the launcher.

 

So I re installed the launcher that I was using (Launcher 8: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lx.launcher8&hl=en_GB).

 

It is working again.

 

It might or might not work on your phone.

 

But why not try....

Be interested to see if anyone else can replicate this, I cannot really think of any way the launcher could change anything relevant to USB audio.

Yep i'm agree with NZ, i've try launcher 8 with the sabre and it's the same thing than the stock launcher, do you have an otg helper or an application who interact with the otg juntom ?

 

Edit : Thanks a lot for neutron player, i was looking for a player who can read 24/192 AND IT DID !!

Ok, found a solution

 

Launch USB audio recorder (don't forget to plug the otg before lauching it) => accept to initialize usb connection => press "menu" button (the only real button, don't know his name) => go to neutron player, select a sound =(If it not direcly working, stay on neutron and plug off/in the otg, then it works !)

 

You can try with other players but neutron is so great ..

 

EDIT : it worked 2 times, and then it say that i've got not enough power .. I give up, now let's try the Leckerton UHA 6S MK2 ! :)

This is weird...

 

It worked for a while, and didn't work after few days...

 

I was busy so didn't do anything until now.

 

I tried other ROMs(perseus, rootbox, cleanrom, etc), and doesn't work...

 

Since people were saying USB audio recorder pro works, so I bought it...and it is working..but as you know it's not made for playing music... it is very uncomfortable to use.

 

It is very random.

 

First time when I got it, it worked .... after I replaced the launcher and didn't work so I reinstalled the launcher and worked for a while.

 

After few days not working...

 

Tried to find the way to solve the problem...

 

No progress.

 

If it didn't work for the first time, I wouldn't be upset...but it worked...and not working now :(

 

sad...

As I expected then, unrelated to the Launcher. You might want to ask in the Android devices and USB audio thread for troubleshooting advice (and perhaps get this thread closed by a mod, since it will be attracting viewers who will not be helped).

I agree.

 

Some how it is working again..but until someone find the permanent way to fix this problem.... this thread is not informative.

Could it be that the batteries in the player simply do not give enough mA for the DAC after a little use?  

 

I know that with the C&C BH the amp section receives a far greater current with better controlled bass when used while charging the amp through USB cable (or external 5v powerbank with USB) and wondered if this approach might be worth trying for any of you guys who also use an amp?
