Hi Guys;

Want to talk of the external DACs.

As we do not have jack on our phone, here a little list of compatible DAC.

Ibasso DC01 ~50$
Review
Unfortunatelly Ibasso says that there's some compatibility issues with Galaxy Series including Note.
It works very well on mine. N975F

Ibasso DC02 ("unbalanced version" of the DC01) ~50$

SMSL Idea ~85$
Review

EarStudio ES100 ~99$
Review

Audioquest DragonFly Cobalt ~299$
Review

Hidizs Sonata HD-D ~30$
Review

I've an Ibasso DC01 and it's wonderfull. I never had a sound like this with a smartphone.



Do you use one too ?

I've been using a smsl idea dac with this phone. It's pretty solid and doesn't drain to much battery.

+1 for this DAC. I'm using it with Shure 845 earphones, connected with a balanced 2.5mm adapter listening to TIDAL Hi-Fi/Master music saved to my device. Simply superb! i travel 43+ weeks a year and this music combination makes the long commutes (3+hour flights) easier to tolerate.

What compatibility issues? I too am using Note 10+ and iBasso DC01, streaming Tidal via USB Audio Player Pro, and all is working very well. Very happy with the DC01 sound

It seems that it simply doesn't work on a large number of Galaxy devices.

I wonder if it's a snapdragon thing. But like I said I'm using an smsl idea dac and it works wonderfully. I'm tempted to order the ibasso dc01 but I can't find it for anything lower than $75usd. I have the the snapdragon note.
