The actual official Nexus 7 implementation (with the dock/speakers as host) is the way to go, it will allow charging at least, functioning basically like an iPod dock (presumably even like the new "lightning" port docks which should be digital).
There are people and people.
HOLY MOLY!Not only is the audio quality MUCH improved, but the sound is so CLEAN now. No clicks, burps, or any other weird background noises. Just straight CD quality background silence. Even my GPS voice sounds prettier. hahahBass is tighter and deeper. Highs are more revealing. Everything is so much better that a novice could tell it sounds better.
I don't know how you can do a ABX with the internal dac vs external
But even then, haven't you forgot to say versus what are you comparing it to?

People actually waste so much time and energy on this bs instead of just connecting to the aux?
Connecting an USB card could have solved this, but it wasn't possible.
Or, you could get a much smaller and infinitely less cumbersome portable music player that works well, like a Fuze+ with Rockbox and a 32 GB microsdhc card.
Although being a solution, it goes around the whole ideology of using a single device for everything.
One tablet + one USB DAC = Two devicesOne tablet + one good DAP = Two devices
What? No. We've established that the tablet sucks ass for music (with a limited space of 32 GB and a 100+ ohms output impedance, it does suck). That's why the DAC is needed.
