Love to have some way to make these two sing together.
I've been searching around for answers to this...
From what I can gather, there are some drivers required to allow the FiiO to connect to the USB interface on the SGS2 and accept digital (i2s) out.
However, I think FiiO, Samsung are kicking the ball back and forth on this one...no takers on the development costs to make these guys sing together.
I sent an email to FiiO support today trying to fish some answers out of them about this.
You'd thing the SGS2 market would be attractive to them...like it might be worth their time to make it work.
Perversely, I've also heard that ICS will (magically?) allow USB digital audio host mode to work with external DACs. -I'd reference the XDA link where I read this, but there was nothing more than speculation so not much is missed by failing to post that link, I'm afraid.
I'm feeling a bit impatient and sad... One of the key reasons I bought my Android was to play flac. -However, the DAC implementation is so poor on the SGS2 that it makes that capability a moot point.
Sure would be nice if we had a way out of the woods on this one...that doesn't involve buying a dedicated source like a la Cowon.
There are some links in this post:
If I find anything useful out, I'll report back here. I hope you find success!
Only thing I can think of is mass email requests to FiiO asking if they're planning anything to make the E7 and SGS2 sing together.
