Smartphone with Audiophilleo for server/streaming external DAC - How good will it sound
I buy a new
Android smartphone every 2-3years or so. Just got a new one and I currently
have two older ones (on top of my new one) that I keep just in case my new one
gets lost-stolen-broken-etc. They both can handle 512G micro SD cards – which would
be enough for a good chunk of my 16/44.1 Flac files library.
The USB audio
PRO player app’ can stream Tidal in 16/44.1 (and more actually) in Bit perfect,
as well as it can play the library on the microSD card from the phone. Other app's can also do it I think.
What if I
plugged an Audiophilleo in between such a smartphone and my DAC (as a USB to s/Pdif
then have a pretty good HIFI “server/streamer” feeding Bit perfect with very
low jitter (that is the Audiophilleo’s promises) and very low (about none at
all) noise since the current is coming strictly from the phone battery with
the added isolation between the phone and DAC by the Audiophilleo ?
the cost of the AP) ?
limit for much higher resolution like DSD maybe (but I can live with that) ? There is also
the problem with the phone’s battery that won’t last for many long hours of listening
but who cares if I can swap with another one ready and fully charged.
tried that ?
Do I miss
something (technical problem) ?
anyone that owns an AP try it – and make a comparison with a good “server/streamer”
