RE: nexus 7

there is some work on custom roms/kernals to get existing USB Dacs working with nexus devices. Its tricky though to install roms etc and a road i'd rather not go down. Jellybean does support USB audio but its a different implementation to the current standard. Normally the PC/tablet acts as the host USB device with the DAC then being the 'slave device' for some reason google has gone down a different road, with the DAC be the 'host' device. This means existing Usb dacs dont work but there should be new type dacs coming to market with the new implementation. I'd love to try and DAC that would work with my nexus 7/galaxy nexus. Apparently the Fiio e7 works with the Samsung Galaxy S3...

RE: nexus 7

I do that and have got two different apps that I use Orange Squeeze and Squeeze Commander, both are which on the Play app store. Both very good - haven't decided whcih I prefer yet.

 

The Nexus is a great device, very impressed. Superb value for money.

It's the Griffin Arrowhead. Two little stands, place them wherever, so pretty versatile.

In my experience, media devil is better than invisible shield. The anti-glare works really well on my iPad.

RE: nexus 7

According to the Stuff.tv website there maybe a cheaper version of the Nexus 7 coming out in America at the end of the year.  Wonder if it will come out here.
