i inquired the developers why i can not record in 24 bit with USB audio recorder pro and that's the explaination:


>     Thank you for contacting us. The app is primarily meant to record and
>     playback from/to a USB audio interface. The Android playback option is
>     more of a 'fallback' option if the USB audio device does not offer
>     playback. In that case, the app only offers 16-bit playback.



Did you try using a different piece of software?  I got 24/96 with USB Audio Recorder Pro on Samsung Galaxy Tab S3.  The software you mentioned that you were using has a description that says it is limited to 16 bit 44.1 kHz.

I use USB Audio Recorder Pro, but it will only let me select 16 bit 44.1 as output. don't know why :/

Okay, this is truly weird.  I ran a test last night with the d:vice and USB Audio Recorder PRO latest paid version on my Samsung T3 tablet, Android 7.  I ran it 4-5 hours at 24/96, power down to 55% (but screen lit the whole time).  I got four 2 Gig files plus one smaller file, no issue I could see with the splits.
 
Speaking with the DPA folks at AES last week, who told me that the d:vice has been used at 192k and higher by some users, with some equipment.  The USB Audio Recorder Pro sheet says it can go as high as 192k, with some Android devices.  When I went to set sample rates in the USB app (from the I/O tab on the main page) it only allowed me to go to 96k, I assume this is a limitation of the Samsung tablet, or maybe all android devices with the DPA d:vice.  I hope to experiment a bit next week with my laptop to see if I can get 192k or higher, not that I ever plan to record that high but just to see what the limits of the d:vice are.

If I can get my hands on a Sony phone (not widely available here, and not compatible with my Verizon service) I'll test it (but don't hold your breath).

HELP! My pair of 4060's are terminated in a single 1/8". Can someone here reterminate them with these Micro Dot connectors? Or, does someone sell an adapter?

^^ I would try to trade them for a pair with microdots in the Yardsale.  Seems like there is always someone looking to go the other way.  Or even sell them and buy another pair with the 'dots.  I am sure you can get a cable made, but, personally, I would want to get rid of the 1/8" connection and have only the locking connectors.

Sending them to DPA is also a good idea, but I doubt it will be cheap...

Third / fourth options:

You or a TS cable maker could do it without special microdot tools in one of two ways by purchasing a cable terminated with male microdots from here and cutting it in half - http://www.cdint.com/catalog/category/Cables/10-32/to+10-3-

Use the two cable halves to either build a stereo female minijack > 2 X male microdot "Y" cable adapter (which doesn't eliminate the stereo minijack connection) OR chop off the existing stereo miniplug and splice to the male microdot terminated cables.

Have a new Android phone (LG V30) and ran a quick preliminary test with USB Audio Recorder Pro,  it seems to do 24/96 fine, but I have not tested it with an extrended recording or looked to see what frequencies are really there.  I do note that in this app PLAYBACK is limited to 16 bits, but recording I/O tab lets me set 96/24 just as the Samsung tablet does.

I have been running the d:vice with iPhone 6S+ extensively now, and it is a nice step up in sound (and reduction of mass and complexity) from both the MMA6000 > Sony D50 and the Church Ugly > Sony M10.  Main issues are the time to transfer files (CAF) by WiFi (I found it goes much faster when I leave the iPhone right next to my router), and keeping the Rode recording app from changing my volume settings.

Kick it down to 24/48 WiFiJeff, and you might solve that file transfer time issue.

Thanks.  I'm finding the mechanics of using this also easier and more reliable than other setups, fewer things to go wrong (cables, batteries, separate pre-amps etc.).  I am even trying to replace some of my 4 track efforts with just a DPA 4081 pair and some frequency EQing, in some cases it has worked well.
