Despite several claims that the AAC+ decoding issues related to the new Stagefright platform have been resolved, I am still experiencing terrible audio quality in ALL builds of Froyo. I have tried FRG01B, FRG22D, LFY 1.4, LFY 1.5, LFY 1.6, SS 4.7, CM6, and several others. Many ROM developers claim to have implemented Google's "official patch" for Stagefright, but they all sound terrible. What gives? Did Google screw up the supposed patch, or are the ROM developers not being honest when they claim that the patch has actually been included? Compare the two attached samples and it becomes obvious what I am experiencing. These clips were produced by Slacker, operating in "cached station" mode. One clip was played back on ESE81, and the other on Liquid Frozen Yogurt 1.6 (FRG22D). Both recordings were made using the exact same levels and settings using an external 24-bit ASIO soundcard. Notice on the ESE81 clip how clear and crisp the cymbals sound. Also notice the smoothness of the vocals. ESE81_eclair.mp4 (Android 2.1) In contrast, playback of the same content on FRG22D sounds distorted with watery symbols. On the vocals, hard "ssss" sounds resemble "sshhhhh" sounds. FRG22D_froyo.mp4 (Android 2.2 - Liquid Frozen Yogurt 1.6) I can't possibly be the only one noticing these quality issues!
