Default audio quality on kitkat based roms

Hi,
is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that the audio quality of Kitkat based roms has gone downhill. i have a DHD and with he smashing TakTik rom, audio output from the device seems to now have some AGC all over it, Google music sounds appalling, and a max volume limit is now in place for everything. does anyone esle find this issue?


thanks

Neiko
