    Hi there guys,
    I'm a new Windows 10 mobile fellow, with my Lumia 950 XL.

    Recently I've bought the LG Hi-Fi Plus B&O PLAY which is supposed to be Windows OS compatible.
    It works great on my OnePlus One and therefore, once I received the Type-C to Type-C cable I ordered on Amazon, I thought it worked like charm.

    But no way to make it work.
    A notification appears saying :"your USB device could not work, try it on a PC".

    Is it Windows 10 mobile?
    Is it the cable?
    In the meanwhile I want to buy a microUSB to Type-C adapter, hoping to make it work using the original LG cable (Type-C to microUSB).

    I left a couple of feedback messaged in the HUB, hoping someone will answer... but I doubt.

    Is there anyone here who tried the same DAC LG Hi-Fi Plus?

    Hello everyone. I have the Massdrop edition Dacport slim from Centrance. It seems to work great with the latest build (14946) and the L950xl. I have tried it on low and high gain with the AKG K7xx and a Sennheiser Momentum on ear 1.0. Works awesome. Before the anniversary update you received the error msg saying it wont work and you need to plug the usb device to a pc instead. Now it works flawlessly without and error messages and with the usual song when you plug a usb device to a normal windows pc. I hadn't tried it since before the anniversary update so I can't say if it started working with this build or with the anniversary build. Eitherway I am quite stoked to be able to use it on my L950 xl while on the go. For 99$ bucks it really is a nice DAC/amp combo. Very clean sounding and an upgrade to my Xonar D1 PM sound card.

    Delpinsky, which build is your Lumia 950 xl on? I had similar issue before the anniversary update. I use this cable: https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-RAVPo...pUvbUpU3577833
    With any micro usb cable and it works with my dacport slim

    FYI. I tested a few DACs with my 950XL at a local audio shop here in Philippines. Not sure where else in the world this is available but the COZY Aegis is highly recommended. Plug and play no problem, sounded fantastic. It is a bit pricy at $449 retail, but maybe discounted at online retailers. Their previous model the Astrapi also worked, but didn't perform anywhere near their new model.

    Worth an audition if you can get a hold of one. A lot of music in a tiny package.

    Edit: I used it with a standard USB-C to USB-microB adapter

    If anyone is looking for a great dac, I got the Creative E5. It is portable, but not as small as others. But had big advantages like Bluetooth and optical in/out support. Extra bass. Also acts as battery pack 3200mAh. Gives any stereo 3.5mm speakers or headphones Bluetooth capability. Stream to my 2.1 computer speakers from 950xl or old headphones. ~$180 US

    Hey guys I own a USB DAC that requires drivers for pc use. I am thinking of buying the new HP elite 3. Will usb 3.0 or micro usb work from the docking station to the dac without drivers ?

    Micro USB from the DAC to USB on PC or display dock. It also works with a USB-C OTG cable directly into the 950XL.

    It can always be connected via 3.5mm analog into the DAC. Check out youtube vid reviews for the Creative E5.

    I mentioned the Creative E5 works using OTG dongle cable directly into my 950XL smartphone. Obviously you'd use the supplied micro USB to USB cable into the OTG dongle. I am using the latest Insider build btw.

    If you can find micro USB to USB-C cable, it might work as well. That would omit the need for the OTG dongle.

    I'm trying to figure out if the hp x3 elite dock using usb to usb to my dac that is usb class 2 will work. Anything that drivers won't work ?

    Sucks only DACs that are usb class 1 work. Meaning no drivers. All the high end DACs are usb class 2. O well

    I recently put an Audison Bit One in my car with the hopes of being able to connect my Lumia 950 to the Optical Toslink input. I have a USB Type C to HDMI cable hooked into an HDMI to Optical Toslink converter. Why they couldn't have just put a USB input on the darn thing, IDK.
    Anyways....I plugged my 950 into my Elite A/V receiver at home, using the USB-HDMI cable, and was able to play audio through it fine. But I'm struggling with the Bit One.
    My 950 recognizes the Bit One as a "Generic PnP Monitor" and, in the "Connect" window, allows me to tap the "Generic PnP Monitor" but nothing appears to happen.
    Any advice?

    Sounds like it doesn't like the second conversion of audio from the HDMI path. Try doing an HDMI to coaxial and see if that works for you.

    Sorry for such a noob question, but does anyone know if any of the fiios will work with the L950?

    Don't see why not. I have tried a bus powered Dac (Centrance dacport slim) and a battery powered dac (Centrance Dacportable) and they both work fine. Sometimes I have to unplug and re-plug it but it works in the end. If you buy the Fiios product from Amazon they usually have good return policies.

    Thanks. I'm also interested in Fiio products, in that case especially the K1. I need portability in particular, and I wouldn't mind bypassing the dac/amp of my Lumia 950 (to be faut I don't know if they're bad but I guess a dedicated solution will be better). I feel my Final Audio Design Heaven II would appreciate a better amp.

    Back to the K1...it seems it should work on 950 as it is UAC 1. In terms of cables, I'm not sure I understand. Do I just need a dongle usb C to micro USB and then I use the cable provides in the Fiio box? Do I need any specific dongle/cable (OTG/non-OTG/...) ?

    Thanks for the help.

    I have done both. I have used usb c (l950xl side) to usb A female dongle and a normal usb to micro usb cable for the DAC. I now use a short usb c to micro usb cable and both products work fine.

    Several DACs work with HP elitex3: Meridian explorer, HRT microstreamer, and Centrance Dacportable.
