I checked it, the khadas tone board is USB-OTG compatible

My phone is oneplus5, android 8.1
my khadas tone board is vims edition

I think that the generic edition should be compatible too.
I too can confirm that the Khadas Tone Board is OTG compatible with my Huawei P10 Plus on both Android 8 Oreo and 9 Pie. I have the generic version.

Due to this site I got myself a Khadas Tone Board too, so thank you all for the measurements and other findings!

Before I received the Khadas Tone Board I used an iFi iDac2 for my stereo, the iFi iDac2 will now be my headphone amp until my Topping DX3 pro will arrive.

My 3D printable case is done.
That looks pretty nice! One question though: the Khadas Tone Board can become quite warm over time (even in stand by). Do you think that this case will give enough ventilation/heat exchange to cope with that?

Here is the S/PDIF input performance. You activate it by just hooking up a USB power supply to USB port. I used the little switcher Wesion sent me.
What switcher did Wesion send?
If you use USB and COAX both from the PC, will it automatically opt for the USB as data input as well?
Thanks!

Here you go, from @TimW's post awhile back in this thread... I can also confirm the same happens with my generic unit ;-)

...I was pleasantly surprised to find that the board automatically switches between its two inputs, with usb taking president. For instance if I am playing something with the SPDIF input and then start playing something on the usb input it will quickly switch to usb. If I then pause the usb input it will wait for a few seconds and then switch back to the SPDIF input. Initially I tried this with a powered usb hub and it did not switch back to SPDIF so that's something to be aware of...

This might be a silly question then, but will there be two separate playback options in the Windows sound menu (1 for USB and 1 for SPDIF) with both cables connected to the PC?

Just making sure I understand it correctly. Much appreciated!

I received my Tone Board today. I've got to say I'm impressed. The unboxing experience was _surprisingly_ good. Really neat box and components inside well tucked away and organized. I'm also very pleased with its performance thus far; makes my whole stack super transparent end to end and what else can an audio enthusiast ask for :)

Sucks bro what does the tracking indicate? If you ordered from Ali make sure to make the dispute before the button disappears just to be sure, otherwise it's a biggg hassle to make a complaint after that initial window.

I inquired them on Facebook which purchase option should be the fastest to ship to my country and they said ordering directly from the website should take 15 days at most to arrive (with the free shipping option) and I did just that. But somehow the shipment lingered around China for 2 weeks before it actually being shipped out lul. I made a complaint to their customer support and their follow-ups were very thorough. They called my local courier company, kept me updated on the shipment thru email, Facebook and even WhatsApp. I'm really impressed with their customer service. I should be receiving the shipment within a week.
