Samsung Galaxy S4 compatible portable DAC/AMPs? - Page 7

post #91 of 153

How do you guys find it in term of comfort to carry both smartphone and separate amp?  I have Note 2 and soon to be getting UE900 (have/had also various "budget" IEH such as S4A II, UE600vi, M-Duo, etc.).  I really itching to get Fiio amp, but it will be almost like carrying one of those external charging batteries :)  It's fine once you have it down on a surface next to the phone, but when you have to carry it around - what do you do?  Attach it with rubber band or something?

Either rubber bands, velcro... or for a far stronger attachment 3M Dual Lock. ;)

Funny, I just through rubber as an example but after reading your reply and looking at some of the pictures on Fiio where they have E07k attached with a rubber band - looks like that's exactly what people do.

 

Btw, should I assume E17 (through OTG cable) would be one of the best  (in terms of price/performance) for this application?

It depends entirely on the level of compatibility of the DAC, KT.  Certain models work only with USB Audio Recorder Pro, while others reproduce every giggle and blip which an S4 is capable of producing.

 

With the Tiny DAC and the E17, yes, Spotify works; the same is probably true for the E18. 

 

For a full list of compatible DACs, see the list which DanBa updates every four or five pages on his USB Audio thread.

Found this thread while searching for a way to output audio from my Samsung GS4.  I have the FiiO E17 along with a OTG cable to connect the phone to the DAC.  However, I only get sound from the external speaker of the phone when I play a song (using PowerAmp).  I've seen other threads stating this combination works, but I seem to be missing something.  Any thoughts on this?

You've got all the correct settings, yes? I believe you need to go to Settings -> My Device -> Accessory -> make sure 'Audio output mode' is checked.

Yes, that's correct.  I have "Audio Output Mode" checked in the settings menu.  When I connect the E17, nothing changes on the phone, as if it doesn't even recognize it is there.

Audio output mode does nothing to get the audio out in this manner.
