About external USB DAC/Amp
A digital audio system is composed of:
. A storage module: Music is stored in file as a series of bits 0 & 1 with different encoding formats (MP3, WAV, FLAC).
. A player: The player decodes the bits 0 & 1 to PCM digital audio signals.
. A DAC (Digital to Analog Converter): The DAC converts the PCM digital audio signals to the original analog audio signals.
. An amplifier: The amplifier amplifies the analog audio signals.
. A speaker: The speaker restitutes the music.
Like a PC or a Mac, an Android phone is a digital audio system.
An Android phone, like the Galaxy Note 3, can output the PCM digital audio stream to an external standard USB DAC & amplifier & speakers, much more efficient than the internal DAC & amplifier & speakerphone.
Itís up to us
to require Google & Android device manufacturers to enable standard USB audio!
