Neutron is quite unique, I agree, but it seems to make music sound a bit 'grey' to my ears.

 

Same thing for me when using V4A,  I use Poweramp in place of the stock player because the support for covers is better for me.

The weird thing about Poweramp though is that if you run it on flat EQ, the volume drops considerably compared to other players.

With my IEM I have to reduce through V4A the output at -10db, the output is too loud for me and also not enough steps volume control, I thing this is depending on the device you have, a Wolfson Note 2 for me.

You want an amp.

Why would you want an amp when the output is already too loud? I've heard it all now!

Because an amp will allow finer control of that volume. That was the issue, was it not?

Also - a good amp does more than simply increase the volume. Do some research.

The amp will help me in step volume control, but it will be less suitable for my daily commute, with the output db control of V4A I have a usable compromise ...

Nah. He can just lower the gain with Viper and that will work.

Amps are so last year, darling.

Wow, interesting attitude you have there.

Why spend money on additional amp and the added bulk and hassle that brings when you can just amp your device via the software?

Software doesn't amplify. Hey, if you're happy with the sound that's great.

So why does rooting my device, adding a custom rom that unlocks the volume cap and then adding gain via a third party app seem to make things go hugely louder than they did before? Am I missing something?

No you are both right, this is the gap between smartphone and DAP ;)

Amp is hardware, lifting a volume cap is software.

And amplification is the act of making something louder. What's your point?
