[Q] USB Audio Possible?

Can anyone confirm if this has USB Audio out? If so, what cable do I need or if I need to hook it up to a DAC?

I want to hook the phone up to when I'm in my car's AUX so I can listen to music. I really don't want to use the headphone jack because 1, it's on top, and 2, I'd need to plug 2 things in if I need to charge the phone.

That's perfectly fine. Unlike the Nexus 4, not even those will work... >_< Thanks for the confirmation.

Another option is to buy HTC Bluetooth StereoClip.

I've read many reviews of using bluetooth. From $20 to $100... they all have lower quality then direct cable. I do have a quite nice sound system in my car and quality is really important to me so I'd rather go with the direct cable.

I'm still considering selling the 4 for the One once it's available here and so far, things are looking quite good. I do hope I can have the option of choosing the higher MP camera since I am here in China/Hong Kong. I do like to be able to crop pictures.

Same here, prefer cables. Using a cable to go from an iPod interface to a Samsung dock. Hopefully I could get a similar dock (or deconstruct this one) to use with the One.

HTC One is reportedly interworking with FiiO E7 USB DAC/amp:

HTC One > USB out >> USB OTG adapter cable + USB cable provided in the DAC box >> FiiO E7 USB DAC/amp >> headphones


About the so-called OTG cable:

If history is a guide, the aptx Samsung HS3000 is likely more economical than the HTC version. AptX bluetooth is pretty good, but it will be the weak link in a high-end setup. If your environment is quiet, you can definitely hear the difference vs. wired IEMs. For car though, not bad.
