Also for anyone that's wondering, iBasso makes a short patch cable that connects directly to the USB DAC from the USB port on the S3. YOu can get it here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Mini-B-to-Micro-B-Android-4-0-Above-OTG-cable-4-5-inches-By-iBasso-Audio-/111036655521?pt=UK_MobilePhones_MobilePhoneAccesories_MobilePhoneDataCables_JN&hash=item19da4ce7a1.

 

That is the best cable for the job and it took me forever to find the right one. 

 

So the Fiio E7 will work as an external DAC for the S3 with this cable? I am considering buying the Fiio E7 to pair up with my S3.

I don't know if the E7 will work. I only have experience with the E07K which is better anyway.

I am also considering the E07K actually, will it work with Samsung Galaxy S3?

Works just fine for me.

Which version is your S3? I have heard that it might not work with certain version of the S3.

I have a question about the FIIO E07K, when connected with the LOD on my iPad or iPod I can't control the volume on both devices, the volume is controlled by the FIIO E07K, but when I used the USB from S3 to USB of FIIO I still have access to the volume control on the S3 and have to set it to max to have more power using the FIIO, Isn't supposed to be like the iPad/Ipod ? I find that inconvenient to have to adjust the volume on the S3. Is there a solution?

post #23 of 38
Ipod line out bypasses the internal dac and internal amp. Thus giving the control of the volume solely to the amp or dac/amp at hand.

Why do you feel its a inconvenience, but then you said given the ability to adjust the volume,on the s3 allows for the perception of more power from the amp?

I prefer like the ipod LOD. Only have to adjust the volume on the FIIO E07K. With the S3 I have to make sure the volume is way up on the phone then adjust on my FIIO E07K

Yeah its probably internal circuitry with the ipod that gives you true line out. When you use a lod it bypasses the amp and dac,but with the s3 you arent getting true line out as if you still have the ability to control the volume that means you still are still getting access to the internal amp and dac, thus when you use your amp, you are essentially amping the internal amp.

And not getting a true clean signal from the source to the amp giving you sound only out of the amp but both internal amp and external amp.

Exactly, that why if did get the FIIO E07K, was supposed to bypass the amp and the dac of the S3, I will try with another OTG cable on my S3 if it solve the problem

Just did try with another OTG cable on the S3 -> FIIO E07K and samething so the S3 don't do his job for the USB OTG to bypass the internal amp/dac, anybody else have the same problem?

I just ordered a new i9300 64gb to use only as a dap (fleabay had a great price on it 429 US) and was wondering if anyone is running cm 10.2 and can confirm whether or not it supports usb audio? If not I will be rooting, installing cwm and 10.2 with gapps in the near future and will report back with findings.

But we all know that double amping is not really good for the SQ, is there any way to really bypass the S3 Internal DAC and AMP? Or is it a limitation of android for now.

With an external dac via 7sb otg you bypass the internal dac and amp.
