Maybe it is not in the most friendly language but you can read the graphs and numbers ;)

 

The output impedance is 3.45 which is on par with Note's 3.44

Good objective performance. Not great though.

 

As expected i guess. It matches the impressions of seasoned listeners.

 

Still an audible step below iPhones. :(

yeah I was expecting more when I heard Samsung was teaming up with the voodoo sound

developer for the sounds, but atleast it is still the best result from Android and it features

the great 'soundalive' I will still prefer Galaxy3 over iphone.

For the 98% of users the SIII audio would be more than adequate. The low volume output is the main issue now but i'm sure that Supercurio will take care of it soon.

 

Anyway i belong to the 2% that spends hundreds of bucks on multidriver iems hence i'll remain on the iPhone boat since music ranks first in my book.

Be a true listener and carry your DAC with you wink.gif

GS3 supports DAC output lol

I don't believe in external dacs when the internal one is very good ;)

And an external DAC for a phone seems a bit silly to me....lol.

Yep on the same boat - I have a spare 32 gig iPhone 4 serving as my main portable music player. Don't see that changing in the near conceivable future.

I wonder how it compares to the venerable Galaxy S with wolfson DAC.  Such a shame the US models got shafted of the wolfson :(

 

does anyone know what DAC iphone5 uses?  hopefully back to wolfson?  :o

I wouldn't worry about DACs at this level, output impedance is key especially when using lower impedance IEMs. The whole DAC talk is grossly overrated.
