      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Yes.It is beta, you can try again, difference should be pretty big.
  2. I have the arise sauron mod installed, what it does is bypasses all android built in sound engines and gives direct access to your dac without any resampling or messing with the signal, while also removing any sound tuning done to it. It can give you full 24bit up to 192khz playback maybe more if hardware supports it. Though I had to move back to 702 build, since the new ones still saw lenovo hifi api and didn't work, because of the always on dvc. With the old version 702. snapdragon 24bit api works like a dream, pure bit perfect playback.
  3. So, I would say you are doing it wrong, double amping is never best solution, the xplay has more than anough power on it's own. Amping it a second time will lower dynamic range and increase noise always. If you do not like the sound of the xplay by ityself, you would be far better off buying a proper dap like dx200 or fiio x7 mk2 and stop waysting your money. If you want to use external amplifier you would need a line out option that bypasses the amps built into it, otherwise it is a tradeoff not worth the money.
  4. Would like to see an option to selct api for high res output. Since i have installed ainur audio mod, had to go back to 702 build. In 703 and 704 it only had lenovo hifi path and would not allow to disable dvc which made everything distort even with limiter. On 702 there are no issues and having selected the snapdragon 24bit pcm output api without dvc sound is stunning, also it is using the sabre dac this way.
  5. So I wanted to ask for a preamp slider that could go up to minus 16db or at the very least -10db. I am using it as my volume control and so far had to combine replay gain preamp, with preamp slider to get optimal results, the slider alone is not enough.
  6. He is the forum Admin. anmd not the dev. Max is the dev and as Andre stated max has not made any contact on progress for a long time, so there is no info that he has about the update schedule.
  7. Well next year seems reasonable eta right now, guess we will see if we get anything in time for new year...
  8. Have been thinking a nice feature would be if Poweramp could state which output path is in use for devices with multiple dac's built into them. I don't need to have Poweramp state device make etc, just the path name so to alleviate confusion on devices with mutiple dac's, as to which one Poweramp uses. The mixer path name will say all we need to know.
  9. There will not be an option called ess sabre, it is called high res output and it is experimental
  10. Bluetooth is incapable of high res output at the time, best you can get is ldac from sony. Even that wont be able to play lossless cd quality files. At the time Bluetooth just isn't fast enough for such a thing, also in Bluetooth mode it uses the dac built into the headphones.
  11. Have to agrree it is the rom's fault, nothing Poweramp can do to fix it, for high res output to work you need a rom that has those audio paths enabled, most people who make these roms have no idea about them or how to make them.
  12. Profit and more cost savings, as always for these big companies.
  13. It has to be added as an output path for the music to the dac, if it does not have a multichannel path than you have no chance of playing back a real multichannel recording(multichannel is 4 or more channels here). Most devices don't have one, verry rarely does one have it. Standard is the mono/stereo paths. You can check in your audiopolicy.config file what your devices supports.
  14. So far it only works for snapdragon chipset based devices fiio x5 3rd gen is based on rockchip 3180 you will need tyo way for the next beta or one after that, ofr max to implement the paths that those chips use.
