In desperation I have now PM'd one of the Exertis staff on the forum for comment, fingers crossed they may have a free tweak or solution, or confirm that DFX or something else is the best solution.

I've had a reply from Nik and there is no fix and they don't see a sound issue, although they will monitor to see if others are having issues

I was really hoping that there was an improved driver around for the Linx integrated soundcard or tweak, it seems there isn't, a great shame as I know the sound can be improved with the likes of the DFX audio enhancer.

I have a Nissan Note car with audio input and I compared the Linx output in the car with and without the DFX audio enhancer, the difference was vast, try the DFX trial on the Linx for yourself to see (hear) and this is with limited light processing, the full DFX version has more power/features, I just hope it doesn't blow the 0.8 W speakers! :shock:

Looks like I have to fork out £20 to improve the Linx audio, which is a shame

A bigger shame would be someone posting a fix/tweak found after I'd spent my hard earned cash.

Please speak up now or forever hold your tongue lol

Cheers

Thanks Dann

Your input is very much appreciated, the DFX enhancer is currently already on discount, however if you don't ask :geek:

I've just checked and the DFX is cheaper today for Jetaudio users? Not sure if other buyers would qualify

Good afternoon everyone.

Has anyone tried using an OMTP to CTIA adapter with their headphones?

After checking with our technical team I am told that the tablets use the CTIA standard and that OMTP headphones will not be as effective.

I have asked for one so that I can test my tablets but I wondered if any of you had already tried this?

I have tested my 3 tablets with some headphones and agree that the Linx8 lags behind somewhat with the volume through headphones to the 7 and the 10 so I'm keen to find out if it something that can be easily rectified.

Update: I have ordered an adapter and am hoping it should arrive with me on Tuesday next week so I will feed back if this helps in any way.

Hi Lee

My original post was about low internal speaker volume viewtopic.php?f=36&t=530
easily proved by recording from the ear socket to a external recorder, the waveform is between a third and half of what it could be.
Sadly your OMTP to CTIA adapter fix won't help my needs.

I can and do use external speakers and that definitely improves the sound, however with maximum portability out in the field I just want the sound from the tablets own speakers, not carrying headphones or external speakers as well. The DFX audio enhancer does a reasonable job improving the sound dynamically, at extra cost which is what I will eventually purchase.....................unless your tech team can come up with something at the eleventh hour?

Im still running with the trial version of DFX. The sound difference is so significant that it it almost makes DFX a must have. Suppose £20 isnt too bad.

Good morning all.

The adapter arrived on my desk this morning and I can confirm it does indeed make a marked difference to the volume when playing music through OMTP headphones.

I appreciate this doesn't address the issue raised by johnpr98 but does potentially address the volume issue raised by the OP of this thread - Quartermass
