2.-when you change the rom you need to wipe all the internal storage or you can wipe just /system and /boot?
3.-The sound is good by default or it could be improved with any beatsaudio mod?
4.-how many gb's have for user use?
Thank you so much in advance :3
I probably can't answer all the questions very well but once you are rooted you can do a Nandroid backup of stock and then install CyanogenMod and play with it. Then back it up and go back to stock when kit kat comes out. On my Nexus 7 2013 I have Stock (clean), CM10_2 latest nightly with glitch kernel, AOKP with ElementalX kernel, Paranoid Android franco kernel, etc.
Short answer is with nandroid backups you can run multiple ROM's and I'd say it literally takes 2-3 minutes to switch between them.
About sound......I hook my Nexus 7 2012's and 2013 up to USB DAC's at home and work and hook them to my old vacuum tube stereos and have them stream MOG and Pandora and Spotify. They sound awesome and can of course be remote controlled from the phone. Nexus 7 2013 with the latest CM and a HiFiMeDIY Sabre USB DAC ($40) sounds way better to me than the headphone jack.
I have a 32 gb Nexus 7 and have about 10-15 gigs available at any given time with most of that being my nandroid backups which are about a gig apiece. I backup everytime any little thing changes and usually keep way too many nandroid backups. I clean them up every week or so.
