I am an audiophile. The stock android music player is sadly lacking. The
dsp included in cyanogenmod blew apart anyportable music player I have
ever had in my life.
That is saying a LOT. It is not suitable for playback in an open space
stereo but with quality headphones the sound you can get out of a cooked
rom surpasses anything I have ever heard aside from a direct line out of
an amp EVER.
I would like to focus for a bit on learning how audio is handled in an
android device, who wrote the soft dsp for CM7 and how can a motivated
user control their audio totally?
I am left with going on android developers and searching for roms that
mostly work. I just want the DSP on mostly stock rooted devices. I want to
be able to switch on the fly from "wet" to "dry" signals if I am moving
between headphones and stereo.
