Samsung Galaxy S Sound Quality - Page 10

post #136 of 220

People here might be interested to know that Supercurio confirms the S3 has Wolfson :) I'm stoked.

post #137 of 220

Yeah, I saw that but I still haven't seen hard proof like a tear down of the Galaxy S3 or official specs although I know  Samsung used the same DAC in the new Galaxy Tab 2 http://www.wolfsonmicro.com/products/audio_hubs/WM1811/, so it's probably true that they've ditched yamaha for wolfson again

Proof here, Supercurio got a Voodoo Report from one of the S3s being demo'd at the launch event:

Yeah, I already saw it - good news

Yup, Supercurio has confirmed Voodoo Sound works on Galaxy III. I quote from his document :

 

 

 

Quote:

 

Audio codec:
 
Wolfson Micro WM1811
100dB SNR Class W Heapdhone amp output, ReTune DSP, 3x digital interface.
 
Like WM8994 in Galaxy S / Nexus S, except:
-  1x stereo DAC instead of 2x.
-  2x 2W Speaker amp instead of 2x 1W
Smaller and probably cheaper, same sound quality expected.
 
Native sampling rate: 44100 Hz. It means music played will be sent as-is to the DAC instead of being processed by a software up-sampling routine as it is on Galaxy Nexus or other devices with codecs accepting only 48000 Hz.
 
Confirmed Voodoo Sound capable.

My Darky 10.2 ROM is getting unstable now. I want to upgrade to an ICS ROM. Which ICS ROM is the best with Voodoo Sound? Thanks

post #142 of 220

Voodoo sound is more of a kernel issue.

 

I´ve been using dark knight 5.5 with good results for now.
 

post #143 of 220

Yeah, voodoo sound is in the kernel. I use Slim ICS and Devil kernel because I don't like the implementation in CM9 kernel of voodoo sound in the dsp manager app instead of the voodoo sound app. Slim ICS is the best ROM - I've tested all of them and it has the least amount of junk to slow it down.

I flashed Slim ICS but Voodoo Control Plus complains that my kernel doesn't have kernel. What gives????

post #146 of 220

Non of the ICS ROMs support the loading of the voodoo module. They do have voodoo dound in the kernel, so the loading of the module is not necessary though. The issue is that the CM9 devs are implementing the voodoo sound options in their DSP Manager app and I hate that - just flash Devil kernel and the vsoodoo sound app will work again.

FYI my galaxy s fascinate with ICS custom rom was working with I think glitch or KGB kernel worked fine with voodoo... But my USB dock with line out jack no longer worked....even with Samsung galaxy sound director app....so I switched back to stock gingerbread

Flashed the Devil kernel also. Now it is working! Many thanks! :)

That's no longer an issue. You can have Voodoo app again.

Well, I guess supercurio finally settled the issie with pawitp as he's been having issues with the cm9 team foe months because of the voodoo implementation.
