    This one should be the best on the market so far

    I'm interested in the black one. How can I buy it here in the states? How much is it?
    Do they sell it here in the states?

    In any case, please let us know your perceived % increase in fidelity should you choose to grab any of the higher price cables.  Curious minds would like to know.

    They're only selling it directly from Korea and international shipping should be fine, at least the pricing in USD looked very reasonable when compared to the KRW counterpart

    Seeteeyou,
    Do you know any angle to angle OTG microUSB cable available to people in USA? I don't need hifi or silver version. I need it short, compact and angled. Thanks!
     
  6. bixby
    I use this one which is angled on one side and standard female usb straight on the other:
     

    Cable Matters (2-Pack) Micro-USB 2.0 On-The-Go (OTG) Adapter

     
    from amazon.

    sweet. I will grab one for my Geek Out and Note 4! I'm buying this purely out of curiosity.
    I wonder how it will increase sound quality.
     
  8. Percival
    Still too expensive IMHO. Unless you have some seriously bad cable now, I don't think it will increase sound quality one iota. Of course it will change your perception of that quality and maybe that's worth the cost to you. They certainly look quite snazzy.
     
  9. kawaivpc1
    Yeah.
    It costs nearly 90 dollars including EMS delivery.
    It's too expansive considering that Geek Out is 299 dollars.
    I might do this later on when I get some serious amount of cash.

    It ends in a female plug. IF those fancy looking, no outside shielding conductors even made a difference, then you would still need to get a USB cable of the same materials from the female plug to the DAC.

    I have a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact that I'm using for my music.
    How would you go about connecting a Fiio E12A (amplifier only) to it?
     
    From what I've read, the Z3 seems to be one of the few smartphones that has an audio driver that natively supports HD decoding (source). Is there a way to make use of this? or do I really need a separate DAC?

    I only saw this MicroB-to-MicroB for 20 bucks

    No angle version with USB Type "A" female since that's a bit weird, LOL
     

     
     
    Geez, I was replying someone who needed a cable for Geek Out, what good is an additional USB cable?

    I didn't know your budget so you might have to contact someone in US directly

    Find out if they were OK with making that cable for you

    If that were still costing too much, maybe ask Brian and see what he could do (or least point you to the right direction?)

    Basically we just need to source something fairly decent like these guys first

    Then the bulk wires could be ordered online, just ask them and see if they were any good for USB cables and could they sell you a VERY short one

    I have the TTVJ one, it's decent. Sounds no different than the $2 ones I have of course...
     
  14. ProtegeManiac Contributor
     
    Missed that part, but in any case for the others who might be thinking of using that cable for other DACs then it still applies.

    I sent e-mails to them and found out that they don't offer any USB mini, USB micro, USB OTC socket for their cables.
