Was wondering if the LG v20 essentially becomes a pre-amp also when you run from the headphone out to system? A pre-amp and DAC.
It's been a while since I used my V20, but my understanding is that the phone has an "aux mode" that engages when attached to a line-level input ( > 600 ohm). This sets the output voltage to 0-1 Vrms which is appropriate for line-level. I believe the amp is actually still in the circuit, but yes, it's acting as a pre-amp.
