    It really isn't too hard to DIY one.  That would be the best way, and then you could make it really compact by adjusting the length as short as you want and using angled connectors where needed.

    I am even thinking to buy a small cheap used Android cell phone, and making a DAP for me :)
    Meridian E2 will be DAC, and I will use through UAPP app.
    I don't know 3D designing, if I had, I would 3D Print a prototype box to put cell phone and ME2 inside and make connections :))

    That sounds like fun. You could start with a small plastic project box.  They are available for cheap in a pretty large variety of sizes.  I've seen a few that look like they would fit a small phone screen pretty easily.

    Thanks, can you share links where can I buy such plastic boxes?
    I must try to find best fit sure by trying. If I can do, I will share here :)

    Those are Mini USB (more common on Android phones, for example), not micro USB, which the M2 uses.

    Point taken, however.
  6. chaturanga
    ME2 has Mini USB port not Micro USB. 
  7. chaturanga
    You need such a cable which is Mini USB to dual USB male Y cable. 
  8. shuto77
    I think this one will work. It has a mini usb for the M2, and a micro USB, which fits most Android phones.

    Thanks, I get them mixed up all the time. My bad.
  10. chaturanga
    No :) This will not work.
    You have to buy 2 cables:
    1- A micro USB to USB female OTG cable (If your phone has USB-C type port so you will need USB-C to USB female OTG cable)
    Here are examples: 
    - Micro USB to USB OTG: https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Adapter-Samsung-Android-Function/dp/B00LN3LQKQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1490268981&sr=8-3&keywords=micro+usb+to+usb
    - USB-C type to USB OTG: https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-CableCreation-Female-Macbook-devices/dp/B01FM51812/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490269020&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=USB-C+to+USB+otg&psc=1
    2- You need a mini USB to dual USB male (Y type) cable 
    Here is an example as I have previously shared: https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-USB2HABMY1-Cable-External-Drive/dp/B003WV5DMO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1490268651&sr=8-2&keywords=mini+usb+y+cable

    Just do a search on ebay or aliexpress for "small project box".
    You could probably pull the PCB from both the phone and ME2, and even add a double sized battery or something depending on how far you want to go with it.

    So what is this mini USB to dual USB male going to supply power to?  The M2 or the phone?
  15. chaturanga
    M2 will be powered. And in my case also phone is charging (but sometimes don't I don't know exact reason)
