    My settings in USB Audio Player Pro: External Audio DEvice (triggered by connecting a 3.5mm to 2.5mm balanced adapter), reduce amp by -3dB and Bit Perfect MQA. Playing on Noble K10, amazing sound from a second hand phone. Just make sure you delete all apps that are not for musing playing and deactivate all notifications for a blissful musical experience. The phone will also move faster and there's going to be plenty of room for your music :). While you're in tweaking mode, disable screen animations, too. Turn that old fellow into an absolute audio beast!

    An impedance adapter example below. Go for the 75 Ohm unit, it will always trigger High Impedance Mode and it won't ruin sound too much if you chose to leave it inserted.

    Love it! Yeah I got mine second hand to but I rooted it and got rid of all the crap on it and it sounds wonderful

    Got my Sony Z1R cans at the office and boy the V20 drives them nicely! High Impedance mode triggered by the headphones, lows are utterly delicious, so is staging and the highs. Unreal value for a second hand phone!

    Struggling a bit to get the V20 to talk properly to my Chord Mojo. I'm using Jet AudioHD and also trying to get it to work properly with the Hiby music player app.
    Outputting regular lossless 44.1kHz files and tried a few mp3/aac files as well, yet the power button is showing up as green (96kHz). I have Hiby settings on "Native" for USB output, while the Jet AudioHD app doesn't have any configurable USB output settings. So it seems the V20 is upsampling the files before outputting, very strange.

    On the odd occasion when it has connected and registered as 44.1kHz, the music has had a very strange clicking/clipping sound. Anyone experiences anything like this? I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I have no idea what

    Reading through this thread and I've got this far - does anyone know if this is a definitive list and if there have been updates to it? Such a long thread and I'm struggling to find the info I'm after!

    One of the very few ways to get the best quality out of android phones to external dac, is UAPP on bit perfect mode. They use their own drivers skipping android upsampling, it's instantly noticeable, sounds much fuller and hiss drops to zero. Money well spend, I have not been able to (also looking) get around android sound processing without it.

    Ah great news, I'll give that a try. Looks like the interface is a bit clunky but as long as it works well, I can live with that
    Makes me wonder why, if they can figure it out, no other apps use a similar method to generate a bit perfect signal. I assume its been discussed ad nauseum though
    Thanks for the advice

    The AptX site clearly lists the V20 as being both AptX and AptX HD compatable as well ad several other Hi if sites that less you search which Bluetooth codecs work on which device...they all say it works with 3 bluetooth codecs including the AptX and AptX HD so backwards compadability should not even be an issue. Its the morons like the dude who claims you must see a special AptX sign to know you are using it, that set us back to the stone ages and his stupid post cost me a few hours of researching that cost me snagging a V30 and can now only find a V20, so it had better f'n work.

    How is this guy questioning this seriously it says clearly right on the AptX website it works on both AptXnand AptX HD that it works on both plus one more???

    My Defenetive Technology Symphony 1's only have AptX so this whole discussion angers me. Why would LG make an audio file grade phone and leave off the main, most common bluetooth codecs at the time...??
    Remember in 2017 there was really only AptX headphones at the time with soon to follow AptX low atency LLAC and the Sony version??

    Can we finally put does this V20 have AptX question to bed?

    I'm trying to connect my usb dac using otg cable to my V20(oreo updated), but no luck. No otg option in settings. Same dac is connected easily on other phone with nougat 7. Any solutions??
