With the last year’s LG V20, the company introduced the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and in case you don’t know, the Quad DAC means that four processors are effectively working at the same time to convert the information in digital format to analog. And the effect of Quad DAC is not that significant unless you use some very high-quality headphones or speakers. The LG G6+ and the Korean variant of the LG G6 also feature the same technology. Now, LG V30 is coming on 31st August, and it is also going to feature the same 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC. .
There will be Sound Presets and digital filters that weren’t there on the LG V20. Also, the V30’s Hi-Fi Quad-DAC will be powered by ESS Technology’s SABRE ES9218P. Many of us know about these Sound presets that let users customize the impulse response of the audio. THe LG V30’s Hi-FI Quad DAC offers sound presets like Enhanced, Detailed, Live and Bass. Talking about Digital Filter feature, it changes the sound characteristics which means that the pre and post-ringing of the impulse response are changed. The three digital filters added in the settings are Short, Sharp and Slow. From these –
Short Produces a more spatial and ambient sound
Sharp Produces a more natural sound
Slow produces a clearer sound
“With the V30, LG and our partners are pushing the boundaries of smartphone audio to enable a more bespoke listening experiences,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The combination of its advanced Hi-Fi audio technology and the superb images generated by its OLED FullVision display makes the LG V30 a true multimedia powerhouse.”
Let’s see what LG has to offer with the upcoming V30. Stay Tuned.
