XiiaLive USB out

Slow Loris 8 years ago 0

Phone: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

OS: Android 5.1

XiiaLive Pro: v3.3.2.2

Speaker: Riva S Bluetooth speaker

I'm using XiiaLive via USB playing Audiophile Lounge 320K streamed audio and it sounds really really bad. It 'sounds' as if it's playing the audio stream in mono with no bass and no treble.

It's makes a Riva S Bluetooth speaker sound like a cheap $30.00 1xspeaker/1xbass raditor speaker.

Now it could be that the USB/DAC on the Xperia Z1 Compact is just crap, but I used Neutron Music player to play some .ogg and .flac audio tracks and they sound OK.

Not mind numbing brilliant, but much, much, much better than anything you can get from XiiaLive via USB.

So... this indicates there may be options available to improve XiiaLive audio over USB.
