I think my use of your picture is covered by fair use, because it is for public interest.
Some fellow forum members are asking about Android & iBasso D-Zero, and a picture is worth a thousand words.
And I did provide a link back to the original picture posted on a public forum.
 
Anyway, I just remove your picture and your mentioned words from my post.
Hey Danba no worries there, just asking and I'm glad you use it. Any pics that I posted online is for the public gaze upon and share. No problem. :)
Anyway loving the Note2 with the DZero. I'm using PowerAmps App to run my FLAC music. You can even EQ it before the data reach to the DAC but I'm running all flat as possible with the EQ setting off mode. One important thing to make sure if you guys running a outboard DAC than make sure the volume on your android device is turn on full 100% than control the volume output on the Amp/DAC for your listening needs. This is to make sure there's no signal loss on the way to the outboard DAC.

Not sure if this is already confirmed here or not, but USB Audio working with the HTC One. My RSA Intruder, HeadAmp Pico and Apex Glacier all a go-go.

Nice one, Fuzzy :wink:. May I ask if and how you attach your PCSTEP to the phone? That's pretty much my biggest concern with the device, as the sound quality is frankly excellent. Thanks man! :)

Apparently, a USB OTG cable, or more precisely a functional Micro-A plug of a USB OTG cable, can switch a stock Galaxy S3 Mini to USB host mode so that it can work with USB peripheral.

Hopefully like a S3, a S3 Mini has a USB host driver able to transmit isochronous packets to USB DAC.

If it’s the case, a S3 Mini using USB Audio Recorder PRO should work with an iBasso DB2 USB DAC.

Are you using some type of LOD or USB OTG or just plain USB cable?

I am pretty sure he is using a so-called USB OTG cable to connect the HTC One to USB DAC.
 
The functional Micro-A plug of a USB OTG cable, i.e. ID pin connected to GND pin or ID pin grounded, switch the USB dual-role HTC One to USB host mode, so that it can work with USB peripheral like USB DAC.
 

 
 
The Micro-B plug of a regular USB cable, i.e. ID pin not connected to GND pin or ID pin floated, switch the USB dual-role USB HTC One to USB peripheral mode, so that it can work with USB host like PC.
 

 
 
USB OTG software and hardware components of the USB On-The-Go HTC One measure the value of the ID pin resistance, and configure accordingly the USB dual-role HTC One to USB host mode or to USB peripheral mode.

A post on the previous page says the s4 is not working with glacier, Im not sure whats changed as it works with my s3 fine, it might be because the international version uses one of the qualcomm SoC rather than the new samsung loads of core SoC.

Thank you, I have to take the Glacier to the showroom and have it connected to the S4 and see if it works.
If it doesn't, than HTC one will be the one...
