I have the new LG G2, can someone recommend me a portable amp?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a pair of Westone W4r IEMs to use with my new LG G2 phone and for awhile now I've wanted to use a portable amp or even a portable amp/DAC.

First thing is, I don't even know if my LG G2 can pass audio through it's USB port (specifications says it can via MHL). Not sure what my options are.

I took a look at some of FiiO's offerings...but I'm not sure which ones are recommended.

What else is out there? 

and do these external/portable devices utilize MHL?

Also, the G2 supports OTG. Isn't that something needed for use with an external amp/DAC?

What is MHL & OTG?

 

Your can always hook and external headphone amplifier, like the Fiio E11, to the headphone output jack on the LG G2.

What amp did you go with? Did you get digital out to work?

Well, I'm holding out for the Fiio E18 DAC/Amp combo. Apparently digital out through USB works with OTG, which is what my LG G2 phone has and the E18 uses. Also, Google Music should work with the E18 as well.

 

Now, it's just a matter of waiting for it to come to the US so I can buy it.
