I need a reply from someone with respect to DAC.
Could somebody confirm whether Zenfone 8 has a dedicated Audio DAC or not?
The Zenfone 8 has linear speakers powered by a dual Cirrus Logic CS35L45 Mono AMP with Dirac HD optimization.
its 3.5mm audio jack is further supported by a built-in Qualcomm Aqstic DAC (one of the perks of using SD888).
I am aware of thati wanted to know whether it has DAC similar to or anything like what Rog 5 has which is QUAD DAC support namely ESS Sabre ES9280AC Pro Quad DAC
Nope not an dedicated one
It has the default Snapdragon 888 Aqstic dac
Qualcomm Aqstic WCD9385
