We have tested E07K do work as DAC for GALAXY S3 and Note 2, but there are few users reported that they can't make it work. so the official reply can not state as " compatible " with Galaxy S3 and Note 2.

....ESS9023 is not as good as WM8740.
I think most people would agree the Sabre dac is better than the Wolfson.
What I want from a DAC is crisp, clean, analytical sound. A high-end Wolfson provides that. Most say the Sabres are warmer and smoother.
 
Leave the coloration to the headphones. Or to nothing at all, depending on your preferences.

I agree ESS may have the best DAC in the world, but it does not means all ESS DAC is better than any Wolfson's DAC

since the E18 is for android, would FIIO issue a apk to enable the other android phones to use this DAC.
 
I have tried USB AUDIO RECORDER PRO on my HUAWEI D1 XL, which works fine with my microdac, it would be great if FIIO can issue a driver or player apk with similar function.
 
for reference

If there would be a new product in the size of E02i, but with dac function, that would be more convenient for phone users.

E18 is called KUNLUN which is a very famous mountain in China, and E19 is called Everest which is our flagship portable DAC/AMP

sorry not on our schedule, but I think most Android phone will supported by E18 if it support OTG function. and when we said it is designed for GALAXY, it does not means it only support GALAXY.
 
we have not budget to buy all Android phones and test all .

That would be quite interesting. It could be quite similar to the E17.

not, DAC change to CS4398 and maybe different OP
