the meizu m6 note as it houses the snapdragon 625 chip comes with Qualcomm Aqstic audio
well the Qualcomm Aqstic family of related features composed of the Aqstic audio codec , the Aqstic hi-fi dac , and the Aqstic smart speaker amplifier .
the codec is definitly there cause i played some hi-res 24/192 flac files with power amp with experimental hi-res aoutpout and opensl through earphone/aux and speaker . theres a dramatic diference
does the m6 note also have the hifi dac / amp? or its just the codec
even if so , its a shame the meizu music player doesent takes advantage of the codecs
All snapdragon powered devices have the audio codec built-in and enabled by default. You can use the SnapDragon music player to take advantage of the aqstic codec. The phone does not have a hifi dac or amp built in. The audio performance is generally weak when compared even with the Meizu m3 note
just to mention some things .
not all SD phones have aqstic audio .
theres always a DAC integrated or dedicated . in our case its not a dedicated one but definately its a hifi one if it can output 24/192 .
snapdragon audio app does not offer any features to use the integrated hires dac inside sd625 chip and can not OUTPUT 24/192 just normal opensl es . other than that it just offers the square sound equaliser
neutron and poweramp apps CAN use codec/dac and output 24/192 to headphones
thanks again for your time anyway
