Do you mean Dolby Digital? We would love to be involved with a custom Kernel built around the sound deck - do something like Liquid Smooth where the Kernel is built for pure stability and build a suite of options for the pure improvement of sound - this is where we can sing professionally. One of my businesses we develop high end audio - mainly tubed gear that costs over $80,000 for one Mono-Block amplifier - we offer custom made full range Electrostatic Panels that destroys the competition - they cost ~$45,000 a panel, you pick the wood used - we use 100% pure silver Capacitors, Wire and Solder in the panels - they sound sweet. My point? We have CD Players that sound analogue - pure and smooth. We would love to develop a platform for our high end customers, one that would allow them to port their tablet to a high end audio system. Hmmm, we are on top something, a high end tablet....one that eliminates the dirty audio path used in current tablets. There is one problem though, MP3's are limited and are far from high end, so we would need a external device that would allow us to convert the Kindle into a high-end media server by providing a bit-perfect digital audio output to an audio/video system. We would need something that could bypass the player's internal D/A conversion and output stage. I think the only tablet that has these high end features is the iPad and iPod. We know TI is developing a new platform to compete with the iPod but we are not sure that Amazon is going to adopt the platform.
We will discuss this with our developer tomorrow and get back to you with the feasibility of such an adventure. We are open to anything that helps to improve the overall end user experience, so far the options for a high end audio tablet are one, the Apple iPad.
