Its nice to know that others still care about the GN but I think at this point its kind of futile. You guys know way more about this kind of stuff than me and no one seems to be able to figure out a way to make it work. With no manufacturer support for DAC out and around a year of knowledgeable techies trying to find a way to make it happen with no results I don't see it happening. I love my Galaxy nexus but Google just took the phone of the play store so that the Nexus 4 could take its place, I guess its pretty much the end of the line for the GN.
Do any of you guys have major complaints with the headphone out audio quality? have you run into problems with it driving certain headphones? Is the headphone out to amp just trash (I know two amps is usually frowned upon)? I think the sound quality on my GN is great and even slightly better with poweramp, sadly I usually get tired of my own music selection rather quickly and end up listening to Pandora or Spotify Radio and the sound quality there is nothing special.
