Heh, that's my post at Head-Fi!
I think it is likely
to be inferior to the Wolfson'd international S3.
Worth bearing in mind that it remains to be seen whether Samsung's implementation of the Wolfson here does it justice, there is more to it than just the DAC - RF Sheilding, it's placement in proximity to other internals etc etc. It's the reason why the LG 2x sounds rather poor even despite the presence of a Wolfson DAC. Until users get actual ears-on we won't know for sure.
