While using the 5CD over UAC1, I am noticing a quality difference when playing a 24/96 file on my computer using VLC vs the same file on my Note 3 which also plays it at 24/96.
The file being Muse - Follow Me Flac.
Using my computer + vlc just sounds a lot better. When using VLC I hear all the different parts of the song grab me and demand to be listened too, while from my Note 3 I find myself trying to listen and see if I can hear the same thing. I have done 15 random blind swaps over the space of 2 days and I can always tell which one is the better sounding one to myself(vlc on the computer).
Trying to figure out what is going on here. Any thoughts? I am no expert. VLC has no equalizer changes or other effects enabled.
The only variables I can think of is maybe the Galaxy note 3 limits UAC1 somehow? Or the players I'm using on the note 3 are causing it? Or the mini to micro USB cable is creating such a variance then the longer USB - mini cable supplied with the C5D.
