LG V30 to feature 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC
With the LG V30 just around the corner, LG has introduced another major feature of the upcoming smartphone – 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC with digital filters and sound presets.
According to LG, the LG V30 features a 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC which is built on the Hi-Fi Quad DAC first introduced on the LG V20. It is powered by ESS Technology’s SABRE ES9218P and comes with new Hi-Fi Quad DAC: digital filters and sound preset.
LG says that digital filters are normally only available in expensive audio players but can soon be experienced on the V30 without the need for high-end equipment. The feature gives the users more control over the quality of audio through optimal pre-programmed settings. The V30 has four: enhanced, detailed, live and bass. LG was also able to cut the distortion rate down to 0.0002 percent which results in less information lost when converting digital data into an analog waveform.
The LG V30 also features a technology from partner company MQA Ltd. that facilitates high-resolution audio streaming, allowing it to combine its Quad DAC with MQA technology. This lets the users experience high-resolution audio when streaming without the need to download huge files.
In addition, the V30 features an HD Audio Recorder with the capability to use the audio receiver of the phone simultaneously as a microphone (Receiver-as-a-Mic or RAM).
Lastly, LG continues its partnership with B&O PLAY to refine the V30’s audio capabilities. Like the V20, the V30 will be bundled with B&O earphones.
