    Why the paid version of Onkyo HF player? The separated USB driver is in the free edition included only limited to 16/44 music output which is not a problem if you don't want to use 24bit playback.

    I'll try the USB Audio Player if my phone passes the USB OTG test after getting my cable .

    The free version of Onkyo HF Player can play 44.1kHz music file, but the USB DAC receives only 48kHz PCM audio flow.
    It is also the case of the paid version when Onkyo USB HF Driver is disabled.
     
    Like generic music players, they are interfacing with the Android media player framework which can only output 48kHz PCM audio flow for the time being.

    Regarding the Oppo - it comes with an OTG cable. I used both the one it comes with and my own, both worked (and sounded identical, as far as I could ascertain within the confines of a limited audition).

    1295$ : it predominatingly kills your bank account :rolleyes:

    Flow ($1300) and 1TB mSata SSD ($450) costs nearly $1700.
    But this is better than any other portable devices you can buy. 1TB SSD is the fastest and the biggest. Flow sounds nearly as good as AK240. Your smartphone's HibyApp is much better than DAP's UI. I don't think I will need anything else. It can be the ultimate portable solution.

    For that much money, I'd want it to play the files as well!

    Still, it's always nice to hear that some folks haven't been affected by the economic downturn.

    Last I saw Currawong was mostly rating the Flow over the AK 240.
     
  10. kawaivpc1

    AK240 can get max 456GB with that new 200GB microSD card which will come out during this July. The thing is, they're not as fast as mSATA SSD. mSATA is much faster. Perhaps, 90MB/s on PC? and more stable. If Flow sounds better than AK240, I would say Flow is the best portable solution available today.

    How fast do you think it needs to be and why?

     
  12. kawaivpc1

    Do you know how long it takes to move 256GB of files to an SD card or flash drive of a DAP??
    It takes quite long...
    While this mSATA SSD is close to drag and drop. It doesn't matter how big an album is. It can transfer 24bit 192kHz albums in a second.
    Especially, when you have 1TB of albums in 24bit FLAC, it's crucial to have a faster storage.
     
  13. Percival
    But how often do you need to do that? It seems like an odd justification for a very high price.
     
  14. StanD
    How often do most of us drag files as once there it stays? One can always let it copy while eating dinner, for those infrequent times. For all the other times of access one doesn't need hair raising transfer rates. But if someone wants superspeed, it's there for them, just open the wallet for a beating.
     
  15. kawaivpc1
    I would prefer one good mSATA SSD over several SD cards.
     
     
    Don't start on me. A 512GB SD card from Sandisk costs $599. A 1TB (1000GB) mSATA SSD from Samsung costs $450 or less.
    512GB mSATA SSDs are around $200 or less. Are you kidding me? It will take at least ten years for SD cards to catch up mSATA SSD
     
    mSATA SSD is far superior to SD cards. If you don't know much about technology, that's your fault.
    Try to research. A 200GB microSD card from Sandisk will be $399. One mSATA SSD is as small as two SD cards.
