Using the Yamaha A-S801 Integrated amp's built-in DAC on a phone connection

Hello all,

I intend to play flac files through USB from my PC and phone directly on my Yamaha A-S801 integ amp, as it has a decent quality built-in DAC and USB input (Type B).

- For PC, Yamaha supplies a driver that forces usage of the Amp's DAC and discards the PC's lousier DAC on a USB connection
- There is no supplied driver as such for android.

Hence, if i use a USB type C to Type B connection to the amp, will i be forced to use the phone's lousier DAC? How do i make the Amp's dac take over? What are my options?

Thank you,

You need an Android player app that recognizes external dacs and plays hi res audio through it. The best example is USB Audio Player Pro

Thank you. Will this player pass everything untainted to the Yamaha's DAC? I would like no contamination to my 'pure direct' Yamaha experience, my friend. I want this player feel like it never was in the mix. I am counting all the electrons in the flow these days . Is it the most audiophile friendly player out there?
