Hi, I'm new here and trying to get information about an old problem.
First of all: my Equipment:
Toshiba AT 300-101 / Android 4.1
Lindy USB-Audio Adapter Pro (USB-Audio to S/PDIF or Toslink)
Digital soundsystem T&A A2D
Then the task:
Streaming multimedia-files from a Windows 8 - Server via WLAN over the Toshiba AT300/USB-adapter to the T&A soundsystem. (Works fine with any Windows-netbook, but a bit noisy for classical music, the reason, why the server is in another room).
Tests with USB-Audio Recorder App on the Toshiba AT300 show, that the audio-output from the tablet to the T&A soundsystem works in principle.
I didn't find a multimedia- or at least a music-player that can also control the USB-Audio Adapter and in addition stream the music directly from the source playing different formats (the USB-Audio Recorder App plays just from the tablet and wav files only).
I follow the USB discussion since ICS, know about the USB-host/standard issue, customized kernels.
Now, we seem to be a step forward, but the relevant apps are still missing (or I'm not able to find one).
