Probably no Voodoo Sound for GP 4.2 (YP-GI1) :(
 
That looked promising: Supercurio, French developer of famous Voodoo Sound bought a GP 4.2:

After receiving a lot of request to support Galaxy Player lines I decided to buy a Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 in order to provide a quality Voodoo Sound support for this device.

Unfortunately it seems the 4.2 is not good enough for that project

Eww just noticed, a required kernel config option (KALLSYMS_ALL) is missing which make the port hazardous.
Maybe it will not be possible eventually.
So to be clear, its possible it won't happen. I don't know yet.

Listening tests gave me the impression it doesn't sound as good as I expected from this codec so I didn't wait and measured the output.
THD and IMD+Noise levels are the highest I found on any WM8994 / WM1811 device so far, jitter is present too.

0.017% THD instead of 0.011%
0.019% IMD+Noise instead of 0.012%
.. and that's enough to sound off to my ears.. f*ck my life.
Moreover he got a faulty device with only one speaker working so:

I'll ask the seller a return & refund, sorry guys − project canceled so far: FAIL on each most important requirements with this device, I'm disappointed :(
Thus the GP 4.0 (YP-G1) remains the only voodoo-compatible Galaxy Player. Too bad :(

He can hear a 0.07% difference in distortion?

Well those are unloaded tests, so the results don't really mean anything. It could have audible distortion and we just don't know because he can't figure out how to use RMAA correctly.

Hey can't figure out how to do RMAA testing correctly?!?!?! Sounds like me,...I suck at it. I leave it to you guys, the professionals.

Back in the analog days we thought an amp with 0.1% THD at full power was pretty good.

He could have made the a better port than we already had on the 4.0...(if only he could have it)

As far as I'm aware the Galaxy Player 4.2 has the same Wolfson chip as the Galaxy S3?

I came across this

Quote:

* Boeffla-Sound engine V1.4.9 to unleash the power of the Galaxy S3 audio chip
* Full configuration of Boeffla-Sound engine via Boeffla-Sound app from Google playstore possible
* Custom equalizer support via configuration file possible
Maybe there is some hope for a Voodoo like implementation for Galaxy Player 4.2?
