    I've read good things about it, plan to get one to use on my Tab S, since typical methods have failed.

    Oh don't say that. Last thing I need is to switch devices again. I'm on the Tab S 8.4 on the couple day old CM12.1. I really don't wanna spend a couple hundred dollars more just because I want to eliminate my 5vRCA Bluetooth Receiver for a DAC and Helix DSP.

    Hi REXNFX,
     
    Thanks for your feedback. Shame UAPP can't access Tidal offline content. I may raise it with their support team once I'm up and running with their app.
     
    Tidal definitely sound better through the UAPP app than the local Tidal app?         Again, Thanks
     
  5. REXNFX
    Sounds much better, however it stutters more, hopefully UAPP will fix it soon.

    btw that wouldn't be an issue if there was a way to convert offline content to regular flac files...
     
  7. DarkerStars
    It's a shame UApp isn't just an awesome driver Instead of a media player, or came with a driver so all tablet audio will flow through it.

    maybe if they created their own custom ROM.

    I bought a Chord Mojo assuming (correctly) that I could load FLAC files on my cheap Android phone (Samsung Trend Plus) and there would be a digital output for the Mojo.  This was naive as I subsequently discovered as the phone doesn't support OTG - very irritating.
     
    Why isn't On The Go (OTG) standard on all smartphones?
    Why are manufacturers so coy about including it in their specs?
    Why are mobile phone shop staff so ignorant about OTG?
     
    Anyway after some research I bought a Motorola Moto E 4G LTE.  Well done Motorola for now including OTG on all their smartphones (previous versions of the E didn't support OTG).
     
    OTG worked out of the box with the Mojo using Audio Player Pro (as recommended by Chord).
     
    So now I have a MotoMojo combination.  My only problem has been getting a good OTG cable to link them.  I have a Lindy version but the connection is very fragile so I've ordered a Forzaaudioworks cable based on info helpfully posted here.

    Welcome and congratulations on your Chord Mojo purchase. That is some Dac to start your OTG journey with

    Tried a Belkin Micro USB to C today with my Chord Mojo and Nexus 6P - all working fine. Cable is long and impractical, but at least knowing that it works we should see some shorter cables coming along soonish. Could use the TechMatte micro USB to USB C adapter with a short micro USB cable I guess (now that they have fixed it and it complies with the right spec as per Benson Leung's updated review), but that would probably stress the port a bit and I think wouldn't be that practical either.

    I don’t understand USB Type-C anymore!
     
    On the Belkin website, it is labelled 2.0 USB-C to Micro USB Charge Cable (manufacturer code: F2CU033bt06-BLK)
    http://www.belkin.com/us/F2CU033-Belkin/p/P-F2CU033/
     
    "CHARGE AND SYNC YOUR DEVICES
    The Belkin USB-A to USB-C Charge Cable lets you charge your USB-C device as well as sync your photos, music and data to your existing laptop at transfer speeds of 480 Mbps. Plus, the cable also supports up to 3 Amps of power output for charging USB-C devices.
    Made for: Connecting from a standard USB-A device to a USB-C (Also Known as USB Type-C) enabled device"
     
    In other words, according to the Belkin website, this cable is used to connect a USB-A device (i.e. a PC / Mac operating as USB host) to a USB-C enabled device or USB-B device (i.e. a USB peripheral like the dual-role Nexus 6P operating as USB peripheral).
     
    And this cable is successfully used to connect the dual-role Nexus 6P operating as USB host (i.e. USB-A device) to a Chord Mojo USB DAC always operating as USB peripheral (i.e. USB-B device)!
