LG is quadrupling down on the headphone jack
LG is building up to the September 6th launch of its second flagship phone for 2016, the V20, by revealing little snippets and details about it ahead of time. First up is the sound, which this year will be powered by no less than four ESS digital-to-analog converters, all working in concert to produce more refined sound and higher signal-to-noise ratio. This quad-DAC approach is similar to what you’ll find in the Apogee Groove USB DAC and amplifier, and there is indeed merit in the multiplication of internal complexity beyond mere spec bloat. The extra equipment will do nothing to improve wireless audio performance, but it will certainly enhance LG's credentials with audiophiles seeking the best possible sound out of the headphone jack on their phone.
