Q: Why does the X5 show the USB DAC interface when connected to a smartphone via USB OTG but does not     make any sound?

A: Because the smartphone expects synchronous transfer to the USB audio device while the X5 is designed for asynchronous USB audio (for less jitter), and so is not compatible with smartphones.

Kindly inform you that it is hardware incompatibility issue of x5. It can't change through the software.

is this still true in 2016? I have read that newer android versions got rid of this problem. I am considering the X5ii as a DAC for my Note 7 whilst also being a standalone DAP.

People are using an App called USB Audio Player Pro which enables them to use async DACs even with older Android versions, and Android 5.x and never versions has USB Audio Support, I would assume that the newer Android OS is also able of Async Data Transfer right?

Hi, berzerk428, kindly inform you that our players can't be the dac to the smartphone. We don't design this function.
