Ipod Video Sound Overdrive issue

(1/2) > >>

Hello there,
I have an Ipod Photo, and I love that thing, but for me, it's a bit too thick, to carry in my pocket along with my phone, so I got an Ipod Video, flashmodded it, with an Iflash Solo board, and installed Rockbox. I noticed, that the audio-quality, was slightly worse, than on the photo, but I figured, I was imagining it, and since I took the sd card, from the photo, I couldn't compare it side by side, but the first time, I listened to Hunter by Björk on full volume (you gotta listen to this on full volume), when the bass kicks in, it sounded really distorted.. then I noticed it, with a few other bass heavy songs, like bad guy, by Billie Eilish, or Angel, by Massive Attack. They sounded fine, on my Photo..
Now, my question, could this be a Hardware issue ( for what its worth I tried switching back plates to switch the audio jack, cause I got a spare, but still same issue ) or is it a Software issue, and can be fixed.. I unfortunately don't have a working spare Logic Board lying around, to see if its the issue.
Any help would be appreciated

Could be poorly chosen EQ settings or a hardware problem.

Post the contents of your config.cfg file.

Here you go

--- End code ---

Do you have the volume at +6dB?  That will distort on most audio, try lowering it to 0dB or less.

So, it's normal for that to happen, at that volume? on the photo it worked perfectly fine at that volume..
ah, well, what'cha gonna do. Thanks for answering though
