Bongiovi DPS (Digital Power Station) app

Just stumbled across this review for an app from Bongiovi Acoustics, whose managing director is Tony Bongiovi (aka Jon Bon Jovi's second cousin who ran the Power Station Studios).
The purpose behind DPS lies in the contradiction between convenience and quality. The advent of the MP3 may have miniaturized music to a level that made entire collections portable, but it did so at the expense of audio quality. This is why you’d be hard-pressed to find a true audiophile even consider listening to a compressed digital file.

DPS acts as a replacement to the iPod app on your iOS device in that you can access all your songs, playlists, podcasts and even videos. The only caveat is that you can’t play any songs you bought off iTunes that are still DRM-protected. When playing a song, you’ll notice the button right below the playback bar.

When blue, the DPS goes to work in analyzing the signal to optimize the bass and highs and create a fuller sound. Even the mids get some treatment, and what you feel is music that “pops out” more at you. Press the blue button, turning it white, and the DPS enhancer turns off.
