I will update this post later today as I will have the opportunity to test the V-Moda Vamp Verza.

I am listening to the V-Moda Vamp Verza right now using Poweramp. Works flawlessly, sounds awesome. Also works with Google Play music as well as USB Audio Player Pro.

it is "USB" not "Ultimate" Audio Player Pro. Same developer.

Got it: You meant to type USB but typed Ultimate -- perhaps because it turns out you're not alone.

I point this out not to be a vast hulking dink but because (1) there's an app called "Ultimate Audio Player," which people might mistakenly download instead, and (2) I googled the name "Ultimate Audio Recorder Pro" and found threads like this one, in which Head-fi members used the incorrect name for the app -- and one of them happens to be NZtechfreak -- a dedicated cataloger of USB DACs.

Note, too, that user phi303 had the same experience I did: S/he looked for Ultimate Audio Player Pro on the Playstore and found nothing. It's interesting that that's happened more than twice.

For the above reasons, I think it's worthwhile for people to know we're talking about USB Audio Player Pro sans the word Ultimate. Since I wasn't familiar with that UARP offshoot until you made me aware of it, I wouldn't expect every DAC user to know it either -- not automatically, at least.

Both UARP and UAPP use drivers that bypass the limitations of source software, which is why I suspected they had to be the same software with an incorrect initialism or variants of the same original software.

Update--


After extensive listening I had to return the V-Moda Vamp Versa DAC. When using the settings required by the DAC for an android phone there is audible (barely) noise. If you change the settings to apple mode - the noise goes away, but the battery drains extremely quick. No Bueno.

Rega DAC works
My OnePlus One recognized my Rega DAC without any issues. I used it with Google Play Music.

OnePlus One -> USB Micro OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter -> USB cable -> Rega DAC -> Rega (or any) Amp

DAC: http://www.musicdirect.com/p-12208-rega-dac.aspx

Thanks, mapin and chazman -- and thanks to DanBa for dropping me a note about the uDAC2.

List updated; it now includes a few new findings from users on Head-fi's OPO thread.
