Galaxy Tab 10.1 as a music player
I'm thinking of trying my Galaxy Tab 10.1 as a music player for my main stereo system. I'd be wanting to play FLAC files through the HDMI adapter using Poweramp, into my receiver's HDMI input. If this works, I'd have a completely silent and totally convienent server and wouldnt have to set up a spare PC just for playing these files on that stereo. Anyone else tried this, and/or had any luck....suggestions?

Re: Galaxy Tab 10.1 as a music player
Thanks for the replies!
Just an update: I have sucessfully got the Galaxy Tab to play my FLAC music files through the HDMI adapter, into my main stereo system. All sounds good so far, though the receiver displays "Linear PCM 44 khz" when a FLAC file or an MP3 file is played, so I'm not sure if I'm getting the full audio quality passed to the receiver (24 bit/96 khz FLAC music files)...
One more thing: which DAC is being used in this setup, the Galaxie's or the receiver's?? hmmmm...

I think you need to buy the AirSync feature for Airplay to work but I could be wrong. I have the doubletwist main app and the air sync add-on.
It comes with a play widget so you can next/previous your tracks.
It's not the best looking player but it works well and the customer support is good.
The only reason I needed to install DoubleTwist on my computer is because I wanted to sync iTunes playlists (I used to own an iPhone). Otherwise, you can just drag and drop.
