hi i'm looking to get a smartphone and i want to get one that is capable of playing and decoding 24 bit with out down sampling to 16 bit. r there any phones like this it seems hard to find a straight answer anywhere.
also i read in one of the forums an idea to use a USB portable DAC on a smartphone which to me sounds like a really good idea and probably what i would like to do. so if i hooked up a Samsung Galaxy ACE to a Behringer USA202 Audio Interface i could play back 24 bit audio? (i use a Behringer FCA202 to encode my vinyl and tapes it doesn't have to be Behringer and it doesn't have to be a Samsung Galaxy Ace either but i'm not looking to spend a lot of money).
what about these HTC phones with Beats Audio r they 24 bit? Jimmy Iovine seems to talk a lot about 24 bit but again i can't seem to find a definitve answer.
any help would be appreciated. thanx!
