So finally after months of on/off searching for fixes, I finally got line out audio out of my Nexus5 working, with a OTG cable to an ELE-DO1 USB DAC and a 3.5mm interconnect to my E11 (making it unwieldy to carry around for daily use - the E11 was already pushing it when I wear tight jeans hahaha), but it sounds considerably better than double amping out of the 3.5mm jack on the N5.
And so my question here is, is there a cable available for android similar to the FiiO L9 cable for iDevices; that will bypass the Amp section (forgive me if I'm wrong) of my N5 and out to a 3.5mm plug (to connect to my E11)? i.e. Micro USB to 3.5mm cable
This would allow me to achieve 2 things I believe:
1) Ditch the ELE DAC (at the cost of some SQ, but I can live with it)
2) Stop double amping
So far my suspicions as to why I can't seem to find anything are that, the device wouldn't recognise the cable as an 'audio channel' (don't know the proper term) so wouldn't transmit audio signal to the cable?
Any help would be appreciated!
