I Stand corrected, I see this doesn't apply to the android based Sony Walkman's. https://www.rockbox.org/wiki/SonyNWDestTool . In any event you may gain further insight to your issue in this thread https://www.head-fi.org/threads/sony-nw-zx2-dap.742609/page-469. I hope that is of some help.

You mean 3.5mm out of the Sony DAP and into the Dragonfly? That will only work if the Dragonfly has an ADC. Even if the Sony has a coaxial output there still needs to be a chip to convert that from SPDIF to regular USB stream.My question to dear forum members is: If I get a 3.5 mm to OTG cable and connect dragonfly black, is dragonfly going to ride the headphones with changing the characteristics of nw-zx2 ?
If the Sony has a line output you can just hook up an amplifier with more power as long as it doesn't color the sound, for example the O2.The exact form of the question is :
If I want the sound in my ear as the Sony's stage, colors , tones and characteristics can I use the dragonfly just to raise the volume as it is ( sth like bypass mode)? OR is it going to be the dragonfly's stage and tunes? In this case is it the same using the dragonfly with my mobile?
