You are wrong here. DAC is another layer. Rockbox uses alsa driver.
I have DeadBeaf player on Ubuntu platform which plays music using my STX sound card.
I cannot say DeadBeaf directly access the STX because of there is Ubuntu platform with its kernel/drivers/etc.
But it's ok! If you don't hear any SQ difference it is not a problem for me.
Sorry for disturb people who like "uncolorized" rockbox sound, I won't do this anymore :)
I proved this new firmware and the sound quality is very good, in my opinion.
The only things I am some not happy are:
- the battery, I read the measures are not too reliable, But it looks very demanding, in 30 minutes of play the battery was down by 10-20%. With the stock firm the battery was at the half after one week of use.
- the default size of font, it is too little for my opinion.
- some themes don't work very well (ex: redux).
If "standard" rockbox has similar SQ I could live with it without problem.
Also, in Linux you can transport sound without modification using alsa. In Ubuntu, probably, the problem is pulseaudio and they maked it the kernel of sound. You only have to use a distribution can live without pulseaudio (OpenSuSE or Arch Linux), I get it in my htpc (with kodi) using mpd. You can find more information about Linux and sound in this web: http://www.ap-linux.com/
