i mean there might be some phones out there are good, ill confess ive never heard those samsungs with the wolfson DAC's in them but there is a reason i never use my phone for audio.  phones are convergence devices so "good enough" as all that matters and "good enough" isnt so for me.

You will probably never be happy then.

Try the HTC one M8 - if that doesn't float your boats, I would give up and take a vow of silence.

what with using a phone as my primary audio source?  i absolutely agree, which is why i dont.

 

that was rather my point, phones are compromise, general devices so a DAP whos aim is audio quality will always best a device that doesnt prioritise audio quality.

No, give up pretence that you know what you're looking for from sound.  If you can't listen perfectly happily to music from one of the current flagship smartphones, you are chasing your own tail too much and need to step back.

oh of course i have no idea what im looking for and unless im happy with what you think is acceptable then i must be in the wrong. 

 

 

you sir not only have a greatly over inflated opinion of yourself but are also exceedingly rude.

I don't think it's rude, just telling it as it is. It's easy nowadays to listen to great music.

well so far you have told me to shut up and that if im not happy with what you deem good enough for all then i must not know what im looking for and be chasing shadows.

 

saying your just "telling it as it is" is short hand for i know im being rude and offensive i just think i know better so am entitled to do so.

I think you are rude about smartphones so let's call it even.
post #188 of 190

yes, you are rude to people i was rude to lumps of glass and plastic that require your riding to the rescue.

While I do love the output from my Nexus 5, I know there are even better options out there - because they sound better, not just because they're dedicated to music purposes. Don't just ignore DAPs because you can't imagine anything better than your current setup.

Heck, I used to think NuForce's NE-700X was my end-all until I got to sample some Westone 3s.

Nexus 5 sounds really bad.

 

Only way to make it decent is cranking up Neutron to the maximum of its dithering/upsampling capacities as well as changing the driver.

 

I want a moto X pretty bad, apparently it sound really good. Same thing for the new Z3 too.
