I purchased the E17 alpen from Amazon, along with an otg cable (still in transit) that I intended to use to hook the fiio up to my Galaxy S3 and DT1350's
I became aware whilst the fiio was in transit that there are issues with using the s3 and e17 together - one of these seemingly being that you cannot use its DAC function (only its amp function) in conjunction with the S3.
The other issue I have come across online is that, in the rare cases where the DAC has worked with the S3, it is not compatible with the Spotify app, which is kind of dissapointing.
I suppose my first question is would you consider it worthwhile keeping the E17 to be used as a standalone amp (plugged in at both ends using the 3.5 headphone jack shaped things) with the S3, or would something else do the trick just as well/better and be compatible with Spotify also? I suppose that the answer to this depends largely on what difference DAC (or its absence) makes.
My second question would be what are the chances (if any) of the s3 and and fiio being compatible when the otg arrives?
All the best,
