Samsung Galaxy note + Headstage Arrow 12HE 4G

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What do you think about this combo, from what I have been reading the upcoming Samsung Galaxy note will have the same Yamaha Audio chip as Galaxy SII.  http://www.anandtech.com/show/4686/samsung-galaxy-s-2-international-review-the-best-redefined/13

 

Howeer I wonder, some say the solution is to buy an external headphone amp and it will solve all "Problems".  I wonder if I connect an USB amp like headstage Arrow 12He 4G, will the sound be processed through the yamaha chip or will it be a direct digital stream to the USB port processed by the CPU and the directlyto the headphone amp (where the magic happens). 

 

If the sound is processed through the yamaha chip I am not sure an external headphone can save this, I really want the Galaxy Note as my music player, I have no problem to carry around a headphone amp in my back pocket..  Is there anyway to to let the CPU process the singnal ?  I know that for normal PC soundcards that only thing that matters is the A/D converter, but the this Yamaha codec seem very bad..so the question if I can get a good sound with the Headstage Arrow Amp and Beyerdynamics DT1350 headphones, or will it like to polish a turd ?? Let me know of any solutions and what you think...
