OK guys now it's time for some brain storming...
I have a ibasso dx90 and a headfier called lurker0 created a custom firmware that sets the cpu clock speed to maximum at all times, from my understanding I guess it prevents jitter and guarantees that the dac is bit perfect at all times
Once again from the dx90 thread I discovered that a battery with better quality cells also increases the sound quality (I bought the official Samsung Galaxy s3 battery for it)
Both the modded firmware and the better battery showed a slight improvement in each they're own ways (I am not alone in that opinion)
Couldn't those same ideas be applied to a diymod? I am confident that someone can do the same firmware mod with rockbox but I am not so sure where to buy an ipod 5.5 battery that is a vast improvement on the regular crap
I don't mean more miliwatt hours or more battery life I mean the cells of the battery are manufactured to a much higher quality control standard
I'm sure there's plenty of you rubbing your palms together right now lol
IPOD 5.5 ISN'T DEAD YET PEOPLE!!!
