All I need is the size of this:
[/li][li]HTC manufactured Windows Mobile and Android-based devices which have a proprietary connector called HTC ExtUSB (Extended USB). ExtUSB combines mini-USB (with which it is backwards-compatible) with audio input as well as audio and video output in an 11-pin connector.[/li][li]HTC introduced devices (e.g. Flyer tablet, Droid Incredible, Amaze and Rezound Android phones) in 2010 featuring a 12-pin ExtMicro USB variant, backwards-compatible with Micro-USB.[/li][/list]
On a basic player with a small power budget like a rockboxed Clip+, FLAC playback seems to be dragging down battery life from about 12 hours with a µSD card inserted to about 7..8 hours, apparently due to more frequent storage access only (decoding itself has been shown to be extremely easy on the processor, faster than any lossy codec).
Would be great to connect the phone to a USB DAC but as far as I know there is no support for USB audio in Android.
Some tablets and even phones have HDMI outs.Using an Android tablet connected via ethernet to a HDD for storage seems to me an obvious solution that can replace the PC in the home theater or hifi set-up.
While I know this discussion is old, I just thought of an advantage of putting FLAC at your phone/in your car/any place noisy: you have an extra copy. While you won't notice the difference listening, it is another backup copy in case a harddisk crashes and you're likely to keep checking for corruption and updating that backup, something you might forget on regular backup copies.
Hello, everyoneI'm new here, so I'd like to first congratulate everyone that participates in these discussions, because I think it's important stuff.So, here's the topic:I have bought my first smartphone recently, it's a Samsung Galaxy Ace running Android 2.3.4 (I guess they call it Gingerbread). I want to use it as a music player, so I'm trying out different players available, like WinAmp and PowerAmp. Until now, I was able to play FLAC files only using PowerAmp. My question is: Is Android capable of playing FLAC with real sound accuracy and quality, or is the accuracy and quality in some way reduced through the process of playing it? Have there been any tests to assert this?
...majority of my FLAC are in 24/192 format occupied approximately 1.8Gb space......I still can hear difference between 24/96 and 24/192 sampling rates...
FLAC playback was added to newer version of Android OS as 3 and 4. Version 4 supports FLAC up to 16/192 sample rates, however here is no dithering, so more likely you need to stick with some music player for smoother playback.
Something must be broken if you can really hear a difference since even 16/44.1 is better than human hearing.
Hardly! The human ear can EASILY discern transients that even a 192 KHz sampling rate cannot reproduce. The 30-year old CD 16/44.1 leaves MUCH to be desired---at least for real audiophiles. If you prefer McDonald's over foie gras and wine, then stick to crappy MP3. I can't believe I have to post this on an audio enthusiast forum.
