Can you elaborate on this a little. What sound settings do you change
We do not compensate for digital distortion in Rockbox, which basically
means that you can "overdrive" the decoder if you set too aggressive
settings. I intend to implement a (configurable) compensation for this,
which may result in a lower overall volume.

Sounds like you are describing gigital distortion. :-)
