  1. This has been my biggest issue over the years I...

    This has been my biggest issue over the years I have owned Centrafuse. Without reliable Bluetooth function for hands free phone operation, Centrafuse is just not that useful for me and my family. A...

    You hit on a key point even if indirectly. A carPC should be designed so my mother/father/wife/daughter could use it without issues once I have spent time setting it up. RR and Centrafuse do not...

    I don't think I would want to drive long cables...

    I don't think I would want to drive long cables from a Y splitter on the DAC output stage. Some kind of preamp/line driver would be my choice.
  4. I am seriously considering odroid but for the...

    I am seriously considering odroid but for the time being, I will do as I said in the opening post. I will use my Galaxy S4 stand alone or maybe pair with a stereo head unit. I will use it for...

    Best reasonably priced DACS are HiFimediy Sabre DAC and Behringer UCA-202. Both have digital optical and analog voltage output. You do not need sound processing like the Bit One and similar...

    MS-8 is a quality product but if you don't want...

    MS-8 is a quality product but if you don't want to get into signal processing, Audio Control makes two different analog preamp EQs that are same 1/2 DIN size as the Clarion Equalizer. They are the...
  7. I have already tried this path and it is...

    I have already tried this path and it is amazingly close to being a good solution. Power Amp is a very good music player, Google Maps has been great with the exception of a buggy release a few...
  8. Your 'I wants' come close to what I wish for but...

    Your 'I wants' come close to what I wish for but I don't mind requiring special knowledge to set it up. I don't mind tinkering if it is productive. I do want it to be intuitive and easy to use for...

    I have experimented with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet but the show stopper for me is sound quality out of the headphone jack is not good enough. I have a quiet car and some high end...
  10. Thanks for the recommendation. I checked out the...

    Thanks for the recommendation. I checked out the screen shots and Driveline looks promising. The one thing I can't determine from the quick look is if it can play flac files. My entire library is...
  11. Tired of buggy software and going use smartphone standalone and JRiver for media play

    I am an older member of the forum but I don't post a lot. That said, I am a EE and understand the magnitude of effort that has gone into front ends like Ride Runner and Centrafuse. I have a lot of...

    This is not turning out to be as easy as I expected to find a USB DAC to work with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. I tried this USB adapter :

    That DAC looks like a winner for car use if it will work with Android. Still have to check out the Clarion. Thanks for tips!
  14. My Galaxy Note 10.1 was not cheap and I take this...

    My Galaxy Note 10.1 was not cheap and I take this wherever I go. Why buy more tablets if I am carrying this anyway? For my lifestyle, making a dock in each car works.
  15. I have three cars and part of this thread is...

    I have three cars and part of this thread is finding a solution that lets me move the tablet from car to car. All three are BMWs - 95 525iT wagon, 97 328iC vert, and 03 530i Sport. The two 5 Series...
  16. I misunderstood. I still think a DAC connection...

    I misunderstood. I still think a DAC connection to preamp will sound better than Bluetooth although it will definitely be more expensive and means one more component to hide.
  17. That could work but I prefer to replace the BMW...

    That could work but I prefer to replace the BMW factory amp with something better. It is actually pretty limited in terms of power output and distortion. Most low cost aftermarket amps blow it away...
  18. Installing a Bit One in each of my cars is...

    Installing a Bit One in each of my cars is definitely overkill but I may do something like that in my 03 E39 530i. That interior is quiet enough to appreciate better quality components. I have a...
  19. I don't see anything involving Bluetooth and FM...

    I don't see anything involving Bluetooth and FM modulator coming close to the sound quality of a good preamp and DAC connected to the tablet. If ease of installation is more important than sound...
  20. Thinking about blending old school preamp with Tablet

    I like the idea of using my Samsung Galaxy Tab Note 10.1 for navigation and music playback but I don't want to do a permanent installation. I have 3 different older BMWs I use on a rotating basis...

    I remember when I was 17 with similar interests in improving my car's stereo system, it was very difficult to get good objective advice on what to buy. The first rule is don't trust salesmen in mass...

    Mitch, I owe you an apology. I tried several things based on your recommendations and the sound did improve tremendously.

    1. First, I powered it from a USB hub with its own wall wart. This...

    If you use MJS device as input to your Car PC that will also be limited to 2 volts Peak in most cases. Very few PC audio devices handle higher voltage. The only exceptions are going to be high end...

    Mitch, I tried registering on your web site Monday to post a question about my experience with the USB Audio Switcher. I have not received an activation email message to enable me to post on your...

    Yes, I think I was overly optimistic about the potential for this device at its price point. I was expecting something with simple relays but I do understand that the way Mitch designed this is more...
