Re: "a 32-bit DAC, part of a burgeoning partnership with Bang & Olufsen"
When I got my Huawei P9 after having had the very decent Sony audio I was shocked. It sounded like the audio reproduction was coming from inside a tin box at the bottom of a swimming pool by comparison. I thought I hadn't plugged in the headphones properly.
Foolishly I hadn't even really given the on-board DAC a second thought when I got my new phone, dazzled as I was by the fun to be had with the new camera on the P9, which is actually quite good.
Well that opened up an expensive can of worms! Now I have a Dragonfly DAC which works great and better in-ear headphones, though subsequently I've found that Bluetooth and a set of Sennheiser Momentum 2 cans actually gives fairly decent quality, certainly acceptable for everyday use on the train for example. The awful DAC on the P9 really made me pay attention and spend upwards of £600 on "fixing" the audio on a £600 phone. Oh well.
Anyway, 32-bit DAC from LG and B&O. Something to think about for my next phone for sure. If only their cameras weren't so meh.
