Audio quality on the newly released Samsung Galaxy S2 (SII) is already pretty good, but according to the an XDA member risq audio quality, bass and clarity can be improved notably, provided you install the newly ripped DSP Manager and CyanogenMod 7 Music Player by him.

This what he had to say about it:
Just to confirm, that I have DSP Manager and the CM7 Music player on my SGSII and the audio output difference is Amazing. A lot more bass, louder and even clearer than stock.
if you like your audio, it’s highly recommended you do it
As for the instructions they are as follows as provided by the risq himself:
Instructions – Root explorer (Requires root)
copy both the files to your SD Card (DSPmanager.apk and music.apk)
1.Load Root Explorer. Go into System -> apps
2.Scroll down till you see the music player.apk file.
3.Select and hold down until a pop up appears.
4.Select "Rename"". Add .bak to the file, so it reads music player.apk.bak.
5.Select the file again as above, but now select move.
6.Press the back key until you go back to the system root (/) and then go go the SDcard folder.
7.Select Paste. You now have your original player backed up and safe if you wish to revert.
8.Now install the Music.apk.

As you can see instructions are pretty straight forward to follow.
