You expressed your doubts that this has a discernable effect on audio.
I abandoned it, because I could not confirm that this is actually
supported by DX50 firmware 1.5.
This is confirmed to work an DX50 firmware 1.6. This is a configurable
option in Rockbox on supporting devices since 2013. This is a capability
of the device and a configurable in the original firmeware.
Remember, this was one of the selling points of the alternate firmwares
It my be, that this has no discernable effect on audio, but I for once
want to least have the option to decided this for myself.

"This certainly seems like a peculiar thing to expose to a user, but I
guess these devices are marketed at people who want an excuse to tweak
things so perhaps that is the idea."
It is. In the same line as 44.1/48kHz playback, software balance,
parameteric eq, surround filters and Doom. Not strictly necessary, easy
to ignore, but nice to have ...
