Crossing fingers for my Nexus 10 with Wolfson DAC.

That would be awesome, I still have SGS 1 with the WM8994 and it is still unbeaten (with voodoo sound ofcourse). Wolfson makes the best DACs in phones.

It's also the reason why I still buy Cowon audio players and still hold onto the older iPods.
Cirrus is getting to be quite good but definitely nowhere near a Wolfson.

This is a good feature. I certainly do not mind a better battery life :). But I hope that Google fixed that bloody mediaserver that kicks in when I am either watching films or listening to music because it takes a a big toll on my battery.

now the question is, how are the speakers on the nexus 5?

Even though it may add some weight and take space, I'm wondering why nobody made their own version of HTC's BoomSound speakers. If my phone is to serve as a mini media center and a smallish tablet then I'd want good speakers to go with it. Plus my ringtones need to be heard when my phone is under all my work gear.
I'd like a Motorola Droid MAXX with dual speakers and a Wolfson DAC to go with it.

I hope my Galaxy S4 Octa with Wolfson DAC can do this :D

Wonder if the S4 has compatible hardware. (the 600 version.)
