Q:  Can the E17 work as DAC for smart phones running IOS or Android?

A: E17 is mainly designed to work as DAC for computers and could not work with Android phones. But recent feedback from our customers shows that it can work with the iPhone by connecting with a 30-pin camera kit or lightning to USB camera adapter. Also because of that the E17 requires a rather high input current when connected, it also requires extra power supply through USB hub and should be set to CHG OFF(in the setting menu).
Ps, to choose DAC device for smart phones, it's suggested to choose the E18. For more information of it, please visit our official website: www.fiio.net

Hi, sorry for my previous unclear statement. Those end users just only tested the iPhone 5/5S. So, we are also not sure that whether the iPhone 6 plus can be compatible with the E17 or not.
BTW, are you sure that the lightning to usb adapter you used is authorized edition from Apple company? As we know, the pirate copy can't work.

Hi tried to connect E17 to Iphone 5 via Lightning to USB camera adapter. Didn't work.
Maybe im doing something wrong? CHRG set to OFF.

And what does that means?
At the same time, pls use the Hub to supply power for the E17


Thanks

Here this picture may help solve your confusion.

BTW, pls try to set CHG OFF in the E17 if that connection still can't work.

Oh, sorry to hear that.  
But pls be noted that, we don't officially claim that the E17 is specially designed for the iPhone. And that we shared the related information about the connection between the iPhone and E17 on the forum, is for providing the alternative for the iPhone users who want to use the iPhone together with the E17.
Anyway, sorry for that the E17 can't meet your need!

i was reading the other forum for the Alpen 2 E17K support, which got me thinking if i can use my Alpen E17 with my Samsung Galaxy Note4. i do plan on purchasing the Alpen E17k later on.

i bought a Micro-USB OTG cable from Amazon as suggested and also bought "USB Audio Player Pro" from the google play store. Hooked everything up to my Note4 and BLAM!!! IT WORKED. Software did detect my E17 DAC and initialized it at 48khz/16bit. at one point i restated the phone the E17 DAC displayed 96khz/24bits. Unfortunately it only displayed it once. i did have one issue were the software would only play one song then error out stating it cant alternate or something about  0's, usb may be low powered. i did set the software for error logging i have to check the logs for exact error. So i changed the buffer size from 100 milliseconds to 400 milliseconds from the software. So far it seem to work, songs are now being played back to back, skip, play/pause, or continuously loop at 48khz/16bit with errors or lost of connection with E17 DAC

i did have issues where the software couldn't detect the E17 DAC. In this case i just close the app out force quite the app in App manager, disconnect/reconnect the OTG cable with the DAC  attached reopen the app. Then the app found and reinitialized the DAC again. I did turn USB charge off on my E17 for this whole process, even though music seems to play and charge my DAC with it on.

Just to be clear, the E17 and E17K both work on the Note 4 (can't confirm with other Android devices, since I don't own them) right out of the box. You don't NEED to install USB Audio Player Pro for it to work. The reason that USB Audio Player Pro is good is twofold. It has its own self contained USB driver (which might or might not be better than the Android global driver), and it allows you to player higher resolution files, rather than the standard 16/44 which is all that the Android system will allow.

  Take the first part with a grain of salt, as I have only tested this with Lollipop on the Note 4. This driver was supposedly activated in Kit Kat (which is what the Note 4 comes with by default), so it SHOULD work on either. I also have both the E17 and E17K, so I used both to test with. As long as "USB charge" is set to "Off", it should work (although it can sometimes be a little flakey, just keep working with it).

  If you are trying to play higher resolution files from it, it will play, but it will downsample them.
