Default [Q] Question about Galaxy Player 4.2 's DAC

Does anyone know for sure if the 4.2 has the Wolfson DAC or does it have the Yamaha DAC like the 5.0's?

I looked, looked and looked but so far there's no confirmation on what DAC the 4.2 has.

Thanks!

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Can you please site your source of this info?

I am not saying that I don't believe you but after weeks of trying to find info on this I would like to read more about it for my own information.

Thanks again!!

Got it!

Now I can finally decide on getting the 4.0 or 4.2 not having to worry about the DAC on the 4.2 being a Yamaha one.

Thanks so much for looking it up!

No problem. Also I recommend to take the 4.0 as it is cheaper and it have voodoo sound now. (it has more features but it's up to you.)

I agree with you, having the Voodoo mod available for the 4.0 is a huge plus.

So far there's a lot of resource for the 4.0 where as the 4.2, I was not even able to root it, all the 4.0 methods won't work on the 4.2. It's going to take a while for solutions to pop up for the 4.2.

I bought the 4.0 for $149 at Bestbuy today and the 4.2 is on sale for $179 this week so I was thinking I would get them both and then return one of them. Best Buy recently changed their return policy to 30 days (used to be 14 days) which is helpful.

The features I like about the 4.2 are the front speaker, larger batteries and the less of the chrome trim like on the 4.0. Also it has the newer version of the touchwiz which is much nicer than the one on the 4.0.

Do you have any opinion on which stable custom rom will give me the newer version of tourchwiz like on the 4.2? I really can't stand the lock screen on the 4.0.

Thanks again for everything.

If you don't mind battery life you have CM7 and if you want a custom stock rom try klin's klassic. Also the gpu on the 4.0 is better as well as the Web browsing.

I read about the Klassic Rom and also the CM7 but decided to wait because of the issues users reporting with them.

I need a stable mp3 player with good battery life which the 4.0 is out of the box but just wish it had the newer version of Touchwiz like the one on the 4.2.

I wish there is a rom out there with just that and no other tweeks.

I think I will pick up a 4.2 tomorrow and give it another go to see which one I like more.
