      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.

If im only ripping to CD quality, I don't really need hi-res output?

Hi, if my flacs are 16-bit/44.1kHz cd quality. Will I gain anything to use the beta hi-res output? sorry noob question.

 

or, If I were to get some 24bit flac, what do I get if it's played on v2 without the hi-res output?

Personally I rather doubt it, although I guess the 24 bit processing might give some extra headroom if you like your audio loud and bassy. But otherwise my own feeling is that it's like watching old 4:3 video material on an HD screen - it will probably always look better on an old 4:3 tube interlaced CRT screen, no matter how good the digital upscaling algorithms are.
