The upgrade improved sound, at the expense of reducing power coming out of the USB and affecting functionality.

See my posts in the RJ-11 thread for how I know this.

Should there be a new toggle in the MJ menu to allow the user to select either upgraded sound or have the (pre-upgrade) amount of USB power to have increased functionality?

Regarding choices for sound quality, I wish MJ allowed the user to choose between G711 and G729. For those with relatively modern/faster hardware (and willing to set magicjack.exe's priority to high), it would reduce the bandwidth used to carry voice. Reduce "choppiness."

I think it would come at the expense of CPU resources. But, for some people it could be a good option.

Between all of the flavours of codecs in use, I have noticed that sometimes they use the G723 codec which does save bandwidth at a great sacrifice. Audio jitter is one of them and volume on both parties are somewhat on the low side at times. CPU is processing power for encoding and decoding.

G711 and G729, I haven't really noticed call quality issues. Maybe a blurp or two during the conversations which is to be expected when your voice is packaged and scattered abouts though the NET then being reassembled on the other side in under 80ms average is a feat in itself.

It would be definitely be great for the advanced user to control which codec to utilise from good, better, and best...
