Thumbs up Rockbox for Xperia S

So I was trying out all the various music apps out there to see which one has the best audio quality and great bass and came across RockBox. I am sure those of you who are "audiophiles" must have heard of rockbox a lot, but for those who haven't its basically "magic that makes already great sounding devices sound even better"

Personally I feel SQ with Rockbox player is fantastic and easily better than PowerAmp and other apps. Though mind you, it doesn't have a fancy UI, no album art, well you could even call it inconvenient but if you are looking for the best SQ then I believe you can't get better than this.

Download the 1280x720 apk from here

Just tried Neutron, its damn good no doubt !!. But I feel Rockbox is better. Neutron EQ isn't very great and also sound seems fuller with Rockbox and you can play around with more settings with it as well.

So at least for me No other player matches rockbox in terms of SQ.

My observations :

Volume is now very good, higher than stock player +beats mod 3.0 Significantly higher

Bass is STRONG

Soundstage and stereo effect is better and overall sound is much more engaging and punchy than stock semc music or any other app (WITH beatsmod 3.0)

Yea guys I know! UI is terrible but I am okay with it as the SQ is to die for !. Also I noticed that it consumes much less battery than the stock music player. Much less in fact.

Hallo juga mas bro

So u open the rockbox folder, find config.cfg , open it with text editor,

Find this line

lang: /.rockbox/langs/deutsch.lng

The default setting setting is in chinese.lng

Change the chinese or english or whatever language u want

Do it the same way on /rockbox/themes

Find file themes m9.cfg

And open again with text editor

Find the line

lang: /.rockbox/langs/deutsch.lng

Change it to english.

I'm using german as my default language
