This phone packs quite a punch for audio as well as one of the best cameras in 2017!
The LG V20 is finally here and after much teasing about the handset’s audio capabilities, we finally have the official details. As well as boasting some top notch playback capabilities, LG has bundled in a selection of new recording features, both hardware and software, that will be a boon for mobile media creators and consumers.

As we suspected, the LG V20 features the latest ES9218 DAC from ESS, which features a parallel sub-DAC configuration to improve noise performance and total harmonic distortion. The chip boasts theoretical maximums of 130SNR, 124dB DNR and -112dB THD+N, although real world performance may not quite reach these numbers.

The chip also features a dedicated headphone amp with a high 2Vrms output, which should help to reduce the effects of signal loss with headphones of different impedance. There’s a 75 stage analog volume control and hardware left/right channel balancing controls too.

Hi does the stock player support DSD natively? Someone said it down samples …

Michael Moore says:

nice review. I have the V10 and V20. works great and drives my Hd650s, Dt880s, K702s, K271 and lastly my old DT831s. no need for my separate amps.

Ionescu George Alexandru says:

I have a Fiio X5 mk1 and a Fiio A5 amp, with Sennheiser HD600 headphones. I’m thinking about replacing the dap with a V20 quad dac version. Do you think the V20 will have a line out as good as the X5? I will use V20 + A5, i am only interested in the sound quality, not the power of the amp, as the V20 outputs line out mode when conected to an external amp.


Hey, Just found your review. I’ve got the V20 as well for many of the same reasons you list here. Thinking of doing a review as well. We have a lot of the same gear. How do you like your UAD Twin mkII? Good video. I’ll look for more!

I too got the LG V20. going to use it for drum covers once I learn how to record. Thanks.

Hitler is actually a cat says:

Pretty sure the v20 is better than the fiio x3 2nd gen shown in this vid. That thing is archaic
