Hey XDA forum users,

I had a question regarding the Note 10+ and connecting it to other devices with USB Type-A inputs, such as cars and speakers. I just bought my Note 10+ after having been an iPhone users for the past five years.

I noticed this week, while renting a car, I was unable to use my Note 10+ as an audio device using an USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable I bought into 2017 for my Nintendo Switch. I got this screen without an audio option. We tested the same cable on my friend's OnePlus 7 Pro and had the same issue.

I'm currently using this cable from Cable Matters: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CNZWMJG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Ef2KDbV6QNBW5

Does anyone know how to fix this? Am I using an improper cable? Any recommendations?

You need a cable with a DAC chip inside, the phone output is digital, the input your system expects is analog. Search DAC in this forum.

Lots of discussion on this as mentioned. Get the apple dongle for 7 bux at amazon or pay the coin and get the samsung version. Both work as i have both/

You could also run the data to an external DAC first, I use Hugo2,but theres many cheaper options.

You'll get better sound quality that way too. So stupid they got rid of the headphone jack and DAC chip.

Yep, they should have included a built-in DAC st this price.

I bought the Samsung USB-C to Aux dongle with built-in DAC and it works..however, I still think my Huawei Mate 10 from two years ago has a lot better sound from its internal DAC.
