Hey guys , can anybody recommend a nice amp dac combo that works fine with nexus 6p? Might want to use it with my laptop too..
Price max 100€-120€ buying in Europe??

I was looking at fiio e07k/ fiio e17k / Ibasso d-zero mk2 / (heard smsl m2 might have problems, was my favorite one before I read this)
Thanks

I can't seem to get the Tralucent DacAmp One working on the LG G3 (CyanogenMod 12.1 Lollipop). With Hiby I get a "system no response, pls unplug USB cable" error, and with UAPP I get this: 
 
"Android did not find any devices, but Linux did! This means your cable is okay, and your device probably hosts USB host mode, so you should try rebooting with the usb cable and DAC attached"
 
Using an OTG cable at the moment, and I know that the Aegis works. Bit stumped here, any help would be much appreciated. I'm getting a blue light from the Tralucent, which means it's at least somewhat recognized, but haven't been able to get audio from there.

Higher quality music rendering with external XMOS USB 384K/32bit DAC / amp to my ears.

Thanks Dan, with my Z3c I tried lots of DAC's and couldn't find one that was fundamentally better than the internal DAC/Amp (after lollipop update) but some say Samsung phones make better transports.

Hey Everyone,
 
I boarded the otg train for some time, but annoyance of receiving a call when otg-ing has really getting on my nerves.
 
I don't know if my case is isolated microstreamer + moto g, but the procedure of getting IEM off my ear and reconnecting the whole bundle is just too much.
In future I would like to upgrade my IEMs into CIEMs and really when I picture the whole scenario with custom made phones and the time needed to refit the 'phones is just .... lame.
 
Whats going on with rest of ya, is this problem hardware-variation related or are we suffering the same lame destiny ?
