Pretty much any mainstream device in the US will use the same (very good) Qualcomm DAC/amp, so there is very little difference between them. Budget devices are a different story, especially if they...

Trying to dampen the driver to reduce its high frequency response does the same thing as electrically reducing the frequency response via EQ.

That said, with such a tiny bit of material in an...

Maybe I was unclear above but you can't fix a short circuit by installing software. You must break that DC loop, either with an isolator ($10 on amazon) or by not plugging in the USB cable.

If you want to avoid an isolator, you'll need a device that includes blocking capacitors on the headphone output (or line out). These have become less common these days as the capacitors do nothing...

Its a current loop through the headphone jack. Your car probably shorts the aux jack ground and the DC ground together, which overloads the player. You need an isolation transformer or coupling...

Rockbox isn't limited to 48k/16. The actual DSP engine runs in 32 bit precision. We just don't have any real 24 bit hardware to run on, so all current devices output 16 bit. But if you had a...

Never tried, but i suspect the player won't like files added by another operating system if its in MTP mode. Try MSC mode for USB.

Aesthetically they are quite similar though. WP is really the spiritual successor of the Zune firmware.

Windows Phone devices run on the same chips as Android, so there shouldn't be any difference unless the phone is volume capped or something weird like that.

Its a Snapdragon 400, which is quite good, so probably very similar to most other devices out there.

Thats essentially just a dynamics compressor. Some people like that, but I'm not sure I'd recommend compressing all music even more than it already is. A lot of genres are already over-compressed.
