Hi Linus,

whatever the result of this survey is, please make the defaults either
flat or Archos-like as a user selectable option. I highly prefer the flat
setting over the Archos-like defaults. Probably this depends on the
ear phones that I use. While I like the flat setting with my Porta Pro,
that already contains a lot of "punch", some other phones may require
a more "prepunched" signal.

What about presets that are implemented like WPS or saved configs just
for all sound options? The user can simply switch between settings for
his/her phones or amp used at home and for portable ear plugs.
