Hello gurus! Sound quality in modern distros is and was a pet peeve of mine, I can't stand muddy, mushy sound when I know that the same hardware in Windows just rocks... So, I wanted to share a nice tweak with notable improvement in sound quality for the modern distros. Before anything, make a back-up of the /etc/pulse/daemon.conf, to revert to it, in the case of any issue. Alright, follow me. Open the terminal with root privileges and type: Code: sudo nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf I use nano for editing etc/ configuration files, you can use whatever you want (vim, gedit, leafpad, kate...) After you opened the configuration file look for this lines: Code: ; resample-method = speex-float-1 ; default-sample-format = s16le ; default-sample-rate = 44100 The last 2 lines are together, the first is found a bit closer to the beginning of the configuration file. Change the 3 lines to the following : Code: ; resample-method = src-sinc-best-quality ; default-sample-format = s24le ; default-sample-rate = 96000 Press Ctrl+O to save the changes, press Enter, and Ctrl+X to exit. You need to uncomment the lines, as in deleting the "; " sign and deleting the blank space between the line and the left part of the configuration file (just to make sure that the code is clean). After, that you need to restart PulseAudio with the following commands: Code: pulseaudio -k pulseaudio –start Or you can log out, then log in your account.The sound quality will improve, and for me, it was a night and day difference.In the case that sound quality has not improved, or should you experience some bugs or some issues, revert to the default values. Cheers!
