    Hello
    Just a quick question, I tried to search but could not find the answer.

    The music player that comes with DS is not loud enough, I need a music player that is louder; possibly with a graphic equaliser.

    Does moonsheel or iPlayer provide a better experience than the player that comes with it (3DS). Also to install Moonshell or iPlayer do I just unzip it onto my sd card in it's own folder?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance as it may be unnecessary to reply.

    I don't think that you can make the sound any higher than the volume limit, no matter the app you're using. But don't take my word on it.

    I believe Moonshell can go over the sound limit, but it's been a while since I used it.

    Also, SD Card ? I hope you mean MicroSD by this, because Moonshell can only be used with a Flashcart.

    The speakers have a hard limit, if you try to force it too high it'll damage them.

    Moonshell can go over 400%

    Moonshell's most likely just amplifies the original sound file. Things that actually remove the limit on the speaker are dangerous, there was a plugin for the PSP that could blow the speakers by raising the volume too much.

    Moonshell makes some sound files blurry when going over 100%, and i dont see why it would do that unless it was removing the limit on the speaker.....i mean it shouldn't be blurry if you are just amplifing the sound file...

    Fourth image shows "clipping", which is the distortion you hear when the actual sound file is cranked up, not the sound system.

    They could always update the 3DS Sound app so that it'll allow a boost in volume, right?

    the amplifiers in handhelds are weak, because they're not intended for listening to music. to artificially boost the volume with something like moonshell increases distortion as well as volume. if you want to listen to mp3s get a proper mp3 player, your ears will thank you for it.

    Also, set the setting to "Stereo" in the Sound channel for better output.

    I think Nintendo was playing it safe when they set the 3Ds's max volume. They didn't want to risk hearing injury and capped the volume really low to avoid lawsuits. If you notice, the 3DS is much louder than the when playing game sounds and music instead as compared to music player. I suppose, maybe, they don't see the same legal threat there. Just a guess.

    Also EU has a legal limit on volume. Some MP3 players (like the Fuze) had to lower their max volume for the EU region in a firmware update.

    The moonshell volume boost is rubbish. It's not possible to use it without losing the already crappy quality.

    That depends on the source sound.
