Subject: RE: New sound test
From: Mark Bright (
Date: 2004-04-01

Not sure if this is a valid test but I tried it anyway:

Three versions of the same source track, played thro' Archos & Rockbox
firmware, recorded from the headphone connection to tape, and then recorded
back into MP3...

See if you can a) hear a difference and b) if so which is "Better", I will
post back in a couple of days which file was which...

Honest, they are not all the same file to trick anyone!

|Hi all!
|I have now used a logic analyzer to listen on the I2C bus, to
|see how the original firmware sets up the MAS. It turns out
|that the "flat"
|setting ist'n that flat after all. The Archos firmware
|activates the Micronas Dynamic Bass, however with a strength of 0.
|It also looks like Archos uses the poweron defaults for the
|stereo separation, which seems to be 100% stereo.
|I have done the same in the sound settings menu, you can
|toggle it with the ON button.
|Please tell me if there is any difference.
