      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.

Direct Volume Control

10 posts in this topic

I have a fiio X5iii and the volume was very low compared to other player Apps.

By turning off DVC the volume went back to the regular volume level.

What am I missing ?

Is this something that need to be sorted by the hardware manufacturers or Max?

In the Equaliser you can boost the overall gain, also turning limiting / headroom features off might help. But extra volume does not necessarily equal quality (in fact, it's often the reverse).

Oh Ok the preamp slider, I have tried that.

So whats causing the attenuation when using the DVC setting?

I guess it's that Poweramp is not using the 2x AKM 4490 Dacs in the X5iii.

And you may find it works differently in the next build (Material Design beta) as more devices will be natively supported. I don't know any details of which ones though.

Is there going to be a list of suported devices?

I doubt there will ever be a "definitive" list as the Android ecosystem is too diverse. However as new high-res capable devices come along, they will presumably get added once people report any issues - but that won't start to happen regularly until PA v3 is officially released. The next beta will include many of the devices that currently have compatibility problems though.
