Compatibility - Will it work with iFi?

Question: Will an iFi DAC work with my Android device?

Answer: There are a lot of Android machines from different manufacturers so it really does depend on the model, manufacturer and even OS version installed.

Here are the basic requirements though:

  • Android device that can run Android 4.1 or above.
  • USB host mode has been enabled by the Android manufacturer.
  • Android device running Android Open Accessory (AOA) protocol version 2.0.

In short, if it conforms to the above specifications, then it will work with iFi device or any other USB Audio Class 2.0 compatible DAC for that matter.

If it conforms and it works then we prefer USB Audio Player Pro (UAPP) or Hi-Res Walkman app (Sony only of course) for audio playback.

You will need the basic OTG (On-The-Go) cable to hook up the Android device and iFi DAC.
