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

post #31 of 674

I don't understand why the awesome dev's out there cannot make a kernel/ROM that does NOT re-sample the music to CD quality. Why Android even does this is beyond me... You can have a 24/96 24/192 DAC in it but the OS re-samples the audio! 

We also need full DAC support! this should be simple and android should support is stock!

i really don't know , i just read it 

 

LG's upcoming G2 phone packs in modern features including 5.2" HD IPS screen, 13 MP camera with 8x digital zoom and the ability to play lossless 24-bit/192kHz audio files. Coming with the Snapdragon 2.26GHz quad core CPU, 32GB ROM and 1920 x 1080 full HD IPS screen, the new G2 sports a variety of modern features. Now that Wolfson's latest WM5110 mobile 24-bit/192kHz DAC chip is showing up in devices, first reported in May 23 here @ Enjoy the Music.com's Industry News page, audiophiles and high fidelity enthusiasts will soon be able to travel with a single device to hear their high resolution music and answer phone calls plus other mobile computing tasks. Wolfson's M5110 is the industry's first quad core High Definition (HD) Audio Processor System-on-a-Chip (SoC). This new highly-integrated, low power HD Audio Processor with advanced DSP feature set is designed to deliver HD Audio performance of 24-bit/192kHz for smartphones, tablet computers and portable multimedia devices. The WM5110 provides 110dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and a fast 600 MIPS of processing power, while only requiring 3mW DAC to headphone power consumption, making it the most powerful and efficient HD Audio Processor on the market. Other features of LG's G2 include Audio Zooming that enables users to zero in on specific audio source by zooming in on your subject while recording video. This unique feature uses three stereo mikes, which amplify sound from the specified angle and deemphasize the surrounding noise. If you want to enjoy the music, then simply plug in your headphones and go. The unit provides easy file sync simply by plugging in a USB cable and the G2 intuitively shows you the icons for features that require earphones or USB cables when you plug them in. This allows faster access to the apps you desire. The LG G2 comes with a large 3000 mAh battery for hour after hour of musical pleasure

Thanks for posting that, but until I absolutely know the USA version has a Wolfson then I just won't count on it.  Past experience you know.

It won't have Wolfson, it will be the Qualcomm one. Wolfson or not is no longer that meaningful in any case- the implementation in the Exynos S4 wasn't great and I preferred the sound from the Qualcomm one to be honest, and furthermore Supercurio hasn't released anything for newer Wolfson devices so there is little apparent chance of Voodoo Sound fixing things.

Welp GSMArena did an audio test on the Snapdragon 800 Note 3...

Looks pretty solid to me!

Honestly, the audio output of flagship devices is pretty good these days.  Hell, even second tier devices have decent output as they just tend to re-use chipsets from recent years' flagships, and we're well enough in to ARM and SOC development for phones that there's a wealth of choices.  Samsung was roundly criticized for the Yamaha DAC they chose for the S2, they're not going to make that mistake again.

Doesn't sound promising. I hope they haven't gone back to pennypinching on audio parts again.
