That's a shame... I thought it was supposed to get better as Android versions go on, not worse...

LOL! I mean, it gets better, but not for every phone. For example, I'm a Samsung fan and Samsung introduces pretty neat features in every new version. Now, if you are more in the pure Android experience side and the nexus devices... you will have to stick with that. Everything has upsides and downsides. I'm pretty sure you will get a kernel with audio USB support sooner than later. Man, it's a Nexus, there is nothing with more side development than a Nexus.

For what it is worth, the LG G2 works with Kunlun. I hope that gives you hope.

How is it confusing? Usb audio isn't a main concern for Android. Very few people use it.

Stock pure vanilla Android aka aosp Android does not have usb audio. 3rd party oems (Samsung, LG, HTC, etc) put the usb audio when they skin or overlay Android with touchwiz, sense and whatever else they call it.

USB Audio Class support is actually the 3rd most user  requested feature in AOSP.

That doesn't mean anything. How many people ACTUALLY posts requests they have to Google? The percentage that do is a very very very very small percentage of the people who use Android.

Also, the ones that's actually do request it doesn't request it for the same reasons we do. They could care less about the dac and bypassing the dac in their phone ..... They want their car cd player or home receiver to detect the songs from their phone and use the controls on the receiver/car deck to navigate through music.

Then again, how many people ACTUALLY care enough to post request they have to Google on anything vs. those who choose to sit on the side and make do? You see only the actual number of request, but I see also those who also want it but simply think they are not going to make a difference and choose to be silence in the background.

 

If no one ever asks for anything, nothing will ever get done.

 

Also - detect songs and remote control? Are we talking about the same thing here? USB Audio Class? :blink: Well, if that get the job done, I don't see why not. :D

If they didn't care enough enough to request it... Then it's simply not that big of a deal. Yeah i know what I'm talking about.... People who request it aren't requesting for external dac support.

Who care what they want as long as it helps to get us all to the same point at the end of our journey? There are people who want USB Audio Class on Android, and why they want it is irrelevant. As far as I care, 15 people who request for proper support of USB Audio Class is better than 3 separated group of 5 each asking for remote control, DAC and song detection - it just shows that there is a demand, so why no makes it happens? In fact, if implementing one USB Audio Class can add three features to Android, I'll call that a win-win for both user and Google.

PC and Android only. To be more precise, some models of Androidphone only.

Maybe. I don't have any iOS7 devices to try, but E18 isn't designed to run on iDevice nor have the MFi chip inside.

But the LG also have Hi-res Audio, and should be the best sounding Smartphone on the planet right now, so does it bring something to upgrade it with the Kunlun? Maybe the E12 will make more sence?
