Since I have added the hub, I can listen all day without problem. The hub also allows me to plug in a 2tb drive filled with my flac collection.

Okay... enough bragging about how much I love this setup and back to work lol.

consider getting a wireless charging back plate or insert for your note 3. i have that for mine, and i use my phone to usb otg out to my HiFi-M8 all day at work, and when i leave, my phone is at 100%.

 

In fact, since I've gotten my Qi charger insert and bought a few Qi chargers throughout my home and at my desk at work, I rarely see my phone go below 50%. This also affords me the ability to leave all my syncing options on, as well as GPS and brightness at auto or full brightness depending on the situation. I even use my wifi hotspot (unlimited data which i am grateful for) for my home streaming of netflix, etc. The wireless charging takes the "how is my battery life?" thought out of the equation!

make sure u have a qi receiver on your phone. Retail Note 3's come with Qi compatibility, but it is not installed factory.

 

mine looks like this and was around $10. The NFC is now hit or miss, despite it saying it works. NFC has just been a pain for me anyways, so i dont mind. http://www.amazon.com/DigiYes%C2%AE-Standard-Wireless-Charger-Receiver/dp/B00GV0Q78M/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1411570217&sr=8-5&keywords=note+3+qi+charger

I've used the modified dac. I bought it for use in my cat to feed my phone straight into my sound processor. Unfortunately, it only worked with UAPP, and not generically with the entire android system.

In that scenario I was using Hyperdrive rom on my Verizon note 3. Since then, I've put JasmineRom 2.3 on my phone, and while I don't have a Modi anymore, jasminerom works generically across android with my CEntrance HiFi-m8 just fine, and also in UAPP.

Whats is the connection accessories you need out of the Note3 to possibly connect it to a modi ?

 

Just a simple USB3 to USB cable ?

a usb otg cable. One end is a micro usb tip (2.0 or 3.0 it doesn't matter. Note 3 and any usb 3.0 device is backwards compatible with usb 2.0 connectors) and the other side is a female usb a port (the port always seen on computers). Then use whatever usb cable you had to hook your modi to your pc.

Here you can see the microusb OTG cable (micro-b to female a) and then a regular usb a to usb b cable used to connect my HiFi-m8. Also, on a side note, that is a stock note 3 I connected, and Google music (a regular android sound driver app) worked fine! Very surprised!

What I need now is a mini 3.5mm to toslink optical cable that is short for portable use. Thoughts anyone? I'm not interested in dropping a lot of money into it. Maybe $30-40 if it looks nice and would be ergonomically beneficial. Any recommendations would be appreciated! Thanks!

not a new version, but a modified version with a different audio driver with amazing audiophile caliber dsp controls, Viper4Android. Visit XDA-developers to learn more on that if you are interested.
