Can someone please let me know if there is a audio DAC inbuilt on this device,if yes then why the sound is so muffled inspite of tweaking the equilizers apearing in music apps like Google music
I am coming from MiA1 and Redmi note5 series of phones and as compared to both the audio on this really soft and muffled,the soundstage is very low.
Mia1 has a 10V amp .
our Nokia 7 plus doesn't have that but if you want to experience that quality and lowdness of sound.
Step 1:Purchase Poweramp audio player and join the beta Testing I think its somewhere around Rs60 currently.(can use the trial version to but you have to join beta)
Step 2:go to poweramp settings->audio->output->Hi Res output (experimental)->wired headset/AUX-> sample rate (choose 384khz)and you are set (your headphones will be amped soundstage will widen and you get a sampling rate of 384khz and 24 bit)(only works for earphones,Bluetooth devices and usb DAC)
The speaker can also be amped up using Poweramp but it is not advisable as it can cause damage to the internal speaker and we wouldn't want that.
