Great Site! Was a Lurker 'til now, decided to finally post a query (sorry if it was answered before):
I've been using my Samsung GT-I9300 S3 through Usb-Audio for a time now (Great Sonics btw), was wondering if I can replace it with a cheaper Phone (or better a Tablet), SHOULD THERE BE SONIC DIFFERENCES?
Reason I ask is:
the phone (I believe) acts as a Music transport, the decoding happens into the USB-Dac, AFTER the Music Stream left the phone, am I right?
IF SO, there should be no reason to invest in a costly Phone...only a basic Android one (if you don't mind High-tech Stuff) RIGHT OR WRONG?
My desire is to trade my SGS3 with a Cheap Tablet (buying maybe later a better phone), so i can use the Tablet for Caraudio duties (avoiding the need to buy an expensive Headunit).
Any Input appreciated (especially technically minded ones )
