    I didn't go through the whole thread so pardon me if I'm repeating.
     
    UAC2.0 is still not supported on Android L? I own an HTC Desire 820 which is expected to get a Lollipop update soon this month. I read somewhere that Qualcomm's implementation of Audio/USB Audio on android is different (may be better) than google. I hope it supports 24-bit/192kHz playback to USB DAC.
     
    If not then last resort will be UAPP.

    Just thinking...
     
    Even if your smartphone will be able to support 24/192.
     
    IMO what gives UAPP (or Hiby, Onkyo) an edge is its (their) DSD playback ability.
     
    And still, to be able to listen, you will still need an App.  
     
    Setting them as default player (as Hiby is free) or shelling out $6-10 (UAPP, Onkyo) for audio bliss experience for me is just moot.
     
    Unless you have a really good DAC/Amp built in to your smartphone.

    I used one with my Note 4 a few weeks back, no problems. The Oppo needs to be in the correct mode to work with Android, there is a three way selector switch on the bottom left corner (sorry, can't remember which one is the correct one, instruction manual should have that detail).

    Another possibility of malfunctioning: incorrectly wired USB OTG cable.
     
    Let's test with a USB OTG adapter cable for just a few dollars.

    USB OTG cable provided by Oppo = USB OTG adapter cable + regular USB cable provided by Oppo

    Excellent info. Thanks so much.
     
    I'll be getting my USB OTG cables from Monoprice in a couple of days.
     
    The cable from Oppo worked fine with my pc and an I-phone I borrowed.

    I'm not sure if an OTG cable will work with a PC. Perhaps it's not an OTG cable. To use an iPhone you had to include the CCK with serves the same purpose as the OTG cable for Android. I'll bet that isn't an OTG cable.

    I stand corrected on both accounts. The pc is a micro/usb cable, and the apple was, well, whatever apple has. This year.
     
    I'll start over when I get my USB OTG cables.

    Ok, so regarding OTG USB cables. I have a Startech one that I use with my Note 3. Works fine. In my understanding this would be the same as any other cable at transferring data. Is there something I don't know about better quality USB OTG than I have?
     
  10. bavinck
    So I did some trouble shooting and I can get the Dragonfly to work perfect natively if I plug it in when the phone is unlocked and before I start playing music. If it gets unplugged and then plugged back it accidentally while playing it will resume playing distorted. Strange. Thanks for the helps.

    Aurender Flow with 1TB SSD solves all the problems.
    It kills all other portable DACs and need for an SD card.
    I would choose a smartphone + Aurender Flow 1TB setup over anything else.

    Regarding my HTC M7, I'm throwing in the towel. My DAC works just fine with various other Android devices I tested it with, but not mine. Neither the tech at the Sprint store nor a phone geek friend had any luck, either.

    Looks like I'll be upgrading my phone sooner than planned.

    So the USB OTG cable from Oppo is functional as it works with other Android devices.
     
    According to your tests, the native USB audio of the HTC One M7 and the third-party USB audio of HibyMusic are not compatible with the Oppo HA-2.
     
    Two other third-party USB audio could be compatible with the Oppo HA-2:
    . Paid version of Onkyo HF Player
    . USB Audio Player PRO: a free trial version is available on Google Play store ("Important: connect your device BEFORE starting the app, otherwise it will not get detected!").
