    Hi I am using my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" to play backing tracks for my solo and duo act. At the moment I am playing via the headphone socket with a 3.5mm jack to 2 x phono into my PA system and playing the tracks using zorillasoft music file player (this app gives me the functions I need). The volume is full up and the music output setting in audio is full up on the Tab and I have also used the equallizer in the music app to boost volume to max, but I am only getting approx a quarter of the volume from the Galaxy compared to the other instruments and vocals through the PA. Therfore I am having to turn the channel on the PA with the tab almost full while the other channels with guitars and vocals are only a quarter turned up to get a decent mix!

    Is there any way of boosting the volume output on the Tab without exspensive add on equipment?

    Thanks :thinking:

    With the custom kernel i use on my phone, you can adjust the output volumes at a hardware level but that requires root and the sound distorts a bit if you go too loud. You could look into getting a headphone amp and putting the sound through that before it gets to the mixer but ive no idea how expensive they are :thumbup:

    Even with root I couldn't get enough out of those otherwise nice stereo speakers from my Tab 2. But with the Nexus 10 OMGVOLUME! Had it only 1/3 and watching a YouTube video it blasted me!

    Tested the img stageline headphone amp last night and it is fantastic, volume increased to level where it now balances with other instruments and no distortion. Very happy thanks all for the input!!
