I tried connecting a external DAC via an OTG cable and it gave me a series of beeps. Nothing else.
The phone says connection was succesful, but I don't get any audio output.
Can someone guide me on what I need to do to get them talking?
BTW, I'm having troubles reading pictures off a thumbdrive via OTG. It simply says it cannot read the file despute listing it in the file manager. Copying it to local works though. Any ideas on this?

Based on my experience with the z5 android / sony places power restrictions on usb audio components, can you provide details please.
Why cant i buy an otg cable from a sony store ?, seems crazy that they are not sold given sony also sell heaphone amps etc.. i felt embarrased for the staff as they were clueless... anyway, where can i get a usbc otg cable.

I'm assuming you are using a micro USB to USB C adapter. Did you make sure to get one that is OTG compatible? If you did not then it will not work. There are some on Amazon that work just fine.

I have an external DAC working. The trick there is the software. I'm using USB audio player pro. It's $8 in the play store and allows bit-perfect playing of files, control of wether or not to force output through the USB DAC, ability to change volume level selector to track selector, etc. Well worth the money. I've been using it for a month and am now having to relisten to my music in my car with a DSP. I'm noticing details I never heard before from CD ripped songs. Some of which, I've heard a thousand plus times. It also supports DSD file playing if you are into HiRes audio.

When I connect a USB drive via an otg adapter, I can not find it in the file manager of the device. It displays only the camera memory and the memory card. But it is present in es Explorer. Now the device does not offer options for ejecting the usb key. What do we have to do ?
