Just bought an Allwinner A31S 10.1" Quad core 32Gb tablet off ebay. It comes pre-installed with Kit Kat and is pre rooted. Everything works fine apart from the sound which is very low. You can barely hear it even in a quiet room. I've tried loads of volume boost apps from the Play store and none work. Even using headphones doesn't really help as the sound is still tinny and poor.

However after installing XBMC I discovered it was possible to amplify the volume and save the setting. Everything in XBMC sounds great so it's not a hardware problem. I think it is a problem with KitKat. I've tried searching fruitlessly on the internet but cannot find anything on this. I don't know if this is a normal problem with tablets in general or Allwinner based tablets or KitKat running tablets or if there is a fix available.

Anyway to get around this annoyance I've ordered some wireless bluetooth speakers so I can actually hear my tablet at a decent level
