After the test of Fiio E18 (thanks vectron ! --> HERE <-- ), I bought this product for use with my Nexus 5.

Unfortunately, with the ROM Paranoid this does not occur. The music player will automatically start yet, but no sound output. I tried with other kernel but that does not change (Elementalx ans Bricked).
I will try in the evening or tomorrow with the stock ROM but, I wonder if you have an idea to run my FiiO E18 USB OTG ?

Thank you !

KitKat doesn't officially support USB Audio.. So, don't try the stock rom. However, it will be introduced as a native feature in Android L.

For the time being, you can use the latest CM as they have merged usb audio out commits in their rom. I don't know which roms over here have this. Why don't you just use the 3.5mm out with the dac??
