Hi Guys,

Currently I use my AK70 connected to chord mojo in my hifi setup. This connection is fairly simple using a micro usb to micro usb. However if I were to upgrade to Rega DAC is it possible to connect the AK70 to Rega DAC since I have my music library stored in AK70. This is much easier than using a computer. Please suggest.

Thanks,
Sunder.

AK70 only does USB audio out so if Rega DAC supports USB input then it should work, you may require micro USB to USB-A OTG cable.

looks like the regs doc works only with Wndows and MAC OS. After all it may not work with AK70 which runs on Android

Does this 'Rega' need drivers on windows and Mac? If it needs drivers it wont work anyways.

You can get a generic USB OTG - adapter like this https://www.amazon.in/Micro-Cable-Tablets-Mobiles-Black/dp/B00H99JW68 and then connect a Type B cable like this to it https://www.amazon.in/ClassyTek-Hi-...TF8&qid=1533903019&sr=1-6&keywords=usb+type+b Make sure the OTG adapter works !

If this setup works , I know the convienience which you are looking for. I had been using the AK connect app on the phone as a remote, with all my music from phone and network drive and AK70 switched.

I have a JDS C5D which I tried using this way, with two cables as I couldnt find a micro usb to mini usb in my case.

For windows it does require a drive however for mac it does not require a driver. I do believe if I manage to get the cable it will definitely work
