Hello, I am quite happy with my Note PRO 12.2 so far. The main problem is the sound quality. Is there a way to improve the quality perhaps through software?

Why Samsung does not move the speakers of their tablets to the front like the ones on the MacBook Pro Retina Display?

I installed ViPER 4Android. Very happy with the results. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191223

It seems that it requires one to root the device. Is there a solution without rooting?

The thing I hate about most equalizers on Android is that once enabled maximum volume is decreased although the shape of the sound does change. Sometimes I just want more volume. .. for that a custom kernel and dsp manager are needed.

Software. I believe the stock one is MusicFX, and most serious music players have their own. Personally I use N7player.

Firstly, disable Adapt Sound in the application manager. It evens out the volume of all audio.

I've also disabled musicFX.

Some music app equalizers have a pre Amp increaser which boosts or decreases the volume to a level of your choice. Screenshot included.



That's N7 player, by the way. It has one of the more extensive equalisers I've come across. (those are the settings on my Note 3 but that's beside the point).
