Default Digital Audio Speaker Docks for Jellybean/Galaxy Nexus

Do these exist? I remember reading this article a month or two ago about jelly bean allowing digital audio over USB so there should be full docks now.

Anyone know of some good ones?

Hi kenjiwing, the standard SAMSUNG POGO pin dock for the GNEX,

outputs digital audio via the 3.5mm jack at the rear of the dock.



It output's optical as well as standard analog (non-optical) digital using the appropriate cable.




You of course also get standard line out for hooking up straight to an amp. The socket at the rear is not a headphone jack as so many reviews have called it. And no one to my knowledge has mentioned it can output optical digital.

I'm not sure if this answers your question. At the very least you might be more informed about what this dock can do. Optical digital from your phone? Amazing stuff.

Have fun. Anil

the one the OP is talking about plays audio over USB and can technically be used for any device where as the dock is specific to the nexus

Hi rptw, correct me if I'm wrong but this is the Galaxy Nexus Accessories forum, right? So hence my suggestion was purely for that device.

Perhaps the OP might get a more general answer posting a question in the general ANDROID Q&A forum, probably.

But still, optical digital audio from the dock for my phone. You have to agree, it's pretty incredible.

Have fun. Anil

I have two different USB DAC at home. I verified that Jelly Bean update did not bring USB DAC capability to the Galaxy Nexus yet.

Is it something we could make? Like hack up a usb cable and connect it to a jack.

I saw when they announced this. It's good news it would be great to have universal audio docks.

Also this isn't the first time this has been avalible. My g1 didn't have a 3.5mm jack. You had to buy micro usb headsets and female 3.5mm jacks. They worked on my HTC hero too.

There are these docks

AS111
AS140
AS351
AS851

I know it isn't audio over USB rather over BT and uses USB to charge but still they are pretty good looking docks

That's because it has to be made specifically for are phone.

The kernel could have supported USB DAC to make generic DAC work. Works out of the box with SGS3.
