I don't play any audio file (mp3 ogg) to the device but open it during
using the SpeakerOut profile. The speake audio path is not used.
For design decision Android open the device in
I/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Initialized ALSA PLAYBACK device
D/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Set PLAYBACK PCM format to S16_LE (Signed 16
bit Little Endian)
D/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Using 2 channels for PLAYBACK.
D/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Set PLAYBACK sample rate to 44100 HZ
D/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Buffer size: 16384
D/AudioHardwareALSA( 867): Latency: 371519
and this remains open. So the the lm is switch on on boot. I think that
the correct behavior
is to have a different profile in asound.conf to avoid power drain and
open a different one when
the system want to use the speaker or just not open the alsa device.
Hope that the now is clear
