    Sorry to ask a question that is probably obvious and been answered a few times,... but 422 pages is a lot to go through and this is important to me building a new set up, but the usb output will not work with the stock music player on my nexus 5, meaning I can not use this with google music unlimited ?
     
    I just want to make sure as I would rather not pay the 10 bucks a month for that service or my nexus 5 if thats the case and would rather spend some money on a dedicated DAP and albums one at a time. since I'm in the market for IEMs and an AMP and possible DAC this would really help with what I am going to go with so I want to be sure. specially since the onboard memory for holding music on the N5 is so small, without cloud support for holding the library the N5 doesn't seem like a real option for me

    Just a heads up...
     
    If you own a Samsung Galaxy S5 don't update to 5.0 lollipop.  I had usb audio working for all applications including YouTube and Netflix on 4.4.4.  Once I updated to 5.0 the phone does not recognize any OTG cable or DAC.  
     
    My Setup is as follows:  S5→USB OTG Cable→Ciunas DAC→Project Ember→IEMs/Headphones.
     
    I hope that a future update will re-enable USB audio out.

    Advantage of a long thread: A lot of information!

    A list of standard USB DAC reportedly interworking with the native USB audio of Android 5.0 Lollipop:
    stock Google Nexus X (5, ...) running on Android 5.0 Lollipop > digital USB audio out >> USB OTG cable (ID pin grounded) >> USB DAC >> amp >> headphones

    If the stock music player of a Nexus 5 can output music to an external USB DAC, Google Play Music running on that Nexus 5 can also output music to that USB DAC, because the stock music player and the Google Play Music player are interfacing with the same Android media player framework.

    I have noticed a similar problem:

    ... wondering whether it is a matter of settings or mismanipulation.
     
    Too bad. And we have to wait for months for an update.

    hey guys, has anyone found any particularly convenient cables?  atm id rather like a micro to mini usb but they all are so long and have straight jacks on them.

    What I also miss on the HF player is the ability to play LAN / Network shares.
    Both UAPP and HibyMusic can access my Synology for example.

    Yes, this. Love being able to access my Synology this way.

    Side note: I often don't have a lot of luck with the Head-Fi search engine (not particularly powerful IMO), so I often use a more targeted Google search to find what I'm looking for. For example, if you want to find something in just this thread, go to the URL:
     
    Googlesearch1.jpg
     
    Copy only the thread title portion of the URL (meaning not the page nor post numbers):
    Googlesearch2.jpg
     
    Then in Google, simply use this format: [search term] site:[thread-only URL you copied above], like so:
    Googlesearch3.jpg
     
    (image missing)
    (Note: there is an "s" at the end that isn't showing because the thread title is too long, but it's there, as in "...and-usb-dacs")
     
    This allows you to use Google's vastly superior search engine rather than the relatively shoddy one on the site. It also allows you to use Boolean search terms (like excluding results using a "-" sign) and other useful tools (like quotation marks around the exact word or phrase you want).
     
    I realize this seems like a minor thing, but I see this question pretty frequently, and I use this all the time and find it much more useful.
     
    Anyhow, back to your regularly schedule programming.
