Re: Aux output not loud enough
Just get one of the free EQ apps and put all the levels to full.
Or some custom roms let you adjust the volume.
some 3rd party music players like Player Pro or Power Amp have pre amp gain as well as EQ so you can turn the volume up. As long as your headphones can handle it.
My international s3 just gives an on-screen warning when you put volume above a certain level.
Stock music player is too quiet for me but the free EQ apps i was talking about work universaly on the phone meaning they control the sound on youtube for example.
I use PowerAmp music player (not free) and a free widget called AudioMaster i think
Plus my rom lets me adjust headphone and/or speaker loudness
EDIT sorry AudioMaster Pro ISNT free... i think the dev' sent me the .apk to test but i used to use Music Volume Eq which IS free and does the same job.
Any amp/pre-amp wether its software or hardware is gona give you some distortion i would think
