Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (24-bit/192KHz) - Page 10

post #136 of 724

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, yet Samsung purposefully crippled the Note 3 from playing high rez files. The guy who developed the audio software/back-end had it all set for 192/24 and other rates,yet Samsung nixed it in the production model to output much less. This is why on tests on production models you can't even... In the end Samsung the company decided the higher rez output used too much battery and some other processing items. Sorry, not my fault. Please don't blame the messenger. If you have a pre-production version with 'original' software/programming NEVER update it, as doing so will 'cripple' the audio in the unit according to my VERY reliable source.

Yesterday i tried at a showroom the Note 3 and an S4 Active and much to my suprises the output power of the S4 was higher than that of the Note 3.

 

Has anybody tried to compare the Note 3 output power with the S4, iPhone 4S or Note 2?

Whether or not that is bad news or merely indifferent depends on whether you even buy that 24-bit offers any benefit to begin with...

Yes, I LOVE XDA and once we root/boot loader the device anything is possible :etysmile:

Well, not anything. You can't make noisy DAC hardware sound clean, can't mask shielding design flaws, can't .......

 

There is an easy hack to turn volume volume way high Wolfson models; not sure about Qualcomm ones.

Has anyone try the Jet Audio Plus Music Player for Note 3 ?

Please share your opinion here vs stock player vs Neutron Player ?

I am receiving my t-mobile USA sd800 note 3 tomorrow, I hope the low volume output isn't a big let down for me frown.gif, I really don't want to return it and wait for the Sony Z1.

I'm so confused... Earlier on in the thread, I was seeing files being played at 24KHZ and having a Wolfson dac, then it appears files no longer play at 24KHZ and they don't use a Wolfson dac...?

There are different versions of the Note 3.  Not all of them use a Wolfson DAC

I don't believe there are ANY Note 3 variants utilising a Wolfson DAC. Even the Korean ones. No news yet on XDA or any other tech forum...
