Is it just me or did 8.0 address audio issues, specifically the low volume it was set at? Suddenly my Quest is pretty darn loud using the speakers on the DAS headstrap. Not complaining, just curious.

I have a Quest since last weekend...and not very happy.  I play a lot of beat saber and the stutters drive me ....  I had installed beaton with custom songs and it turned out to be a disaster.  Factory reset and clean install beat saberwith no mods....same result.  I also have a google wifi mesh network so I get a lot of disconnect/connect warnings.  Back to main rig upstairs with CV1 till they fix this.
