Andrewilley, Do you know what DAC means? From what I'm reading above, I don't think you do. It means "Digital to Analog Converter". Every phone has one, and every application has to have the ability to send digital audio to it. If it doesn't then the listener would not hear anything. The V10 has a Reference Audiophile 32bit DAC as-well-as a standard 16bit crappy DAC. All we are asking is if you can also support the BETTER DAC. If your codecs can't support something that is HIGH-END then those codecs you are referring to are CRAPPY and I will be sure to let the community know.
