    Hey all,

    I have a question regarding using a DAC with android.

    I just bought a Nuforce UDAC3 which I'm really digging for the price. I'd really love to get it working with my phone (Sony Xperia X) which I believe supports USB audio.

    As I understand it, the UDAC won't work with a phone due to it's power requirements. Is there any reason I can't buy/bodge a Micro USB - Micro USB + Full size USB cable and power the DAC using a power bank in parallel?

    Many thanks,

    So for the record, this doesn't work. The DAC powers up but isn't recognised by the phone. Ah well!
