      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.

When i used mi4c miui7 android 5.1.1, hires worked well and there is almost no noise, while Poweramp 585 had much noise. Yesterday I change my system into  CM13,which is based on android 6.0.1. It strange that the hires can be actived, but the noise is still, that's too bad

Works perfectly on Galaxy S5 but there are no songtexts 

and is Galaxy Tab S supported for Hi-Res?

I'd like to add that OnePlus One's Marshmallow CyanogenMod-based builds also support it, I've personally used it with ResurectionRemix ROMs up to 192 and I've read from others that "stock" CM13 nightlies also support it just fine.

On the other hand, I've read that SultanXDA's CAF-based builds for some reason didn't support it at least up 'till now, not sure whether that has changed or will change.

Hello, I'm no music expert, and I just joined the beta program, so I'm still trying to figure things out, but from what it looks like, I am able to use the high res output on my htc m9 running Android 6.0(I do believe the htc m8 should be able to also, maybe m7, but not so sure). However, dvc does not work. So in short htc m9 is a yes, but no dvc support.  

Update, a minute after posting, the music stopped playing, however, the visualizer showed that there was something playing. The lows were moving even though I couldn't hear any sound. After switching to normal, and back to high res, the music is now playing again. Will test the reliability on my device and post back.

Update, yeah, the stability of high res audio output on the htc m9 isn't that great. The audio tends to cut out. Again, I'm not a soundengineer, or some guy who knows a ton about the details of music, such as resampler, so I can't say I know if it's a setting I changed that did this, or its a stability issue, or just me. Probably me. 

Also, can someone clarify what this does feature does? Does it allow users to listen to high res audio with high res audio gear? Does it make low quality mp3s sound like high res audio like the sony xperia music players can? What's the function of this feature along with the other new ones. Thanks.

Hey guys, me again, can I ask a favor? Could you please go to the settings for high res and change a setting? For me, If I change the sample rate, or check of no eq, I get a failed, changed to default output. Does this happen to anyone else? Thanks.

Works great on my BlackBerry PRIV running Android 6.0.1.  I had to set the visualization delay to 150ms to get the vis to match the audio.  I left all of the other settings at their defaults.

Played with quite a bit of hacks in mixer_paths and audio_policy on the Sony Z3 Tablet Compact (pretty much hardware to Z3), and finally got Hi-res to work.

Now the device plays 24bit/44.1khz flacs without going to 48khz system sample rate. DVC is mandatory, and disabling DVC forces Poweramp to fall back to OpenSL ES.

Unfortunately, Z3 will resample to 48khz anyway. There is only one DAC clock, so it works on multiples of 48khz, always. (Then delta-sigma DACs will oversample to very high frequency and quantize all those 24/16bits to 1bit).

Android audio system, though, can work on 44.1 or 48khz, so no resampling will happen in Android in this case (but it will still resample on lower levels to DAC 48khz). It's debatable if Qualcomm DSP resampling is better/worse vs Android resampler.

From this info I am extrapolating that the best setup is then

Poweramp v3 -> sox 44.1k to 96k -> hi-res 24/96 (pushes aliasing / low pass filter artifacts further up the freq spectrum) -> (Android sound layer, or is this bypassed?) -> Qualcomm DSP delta sigma

Since I also have alsa with a good quality resampler (not as elaborate as sox, but better than Sony stock implementation) running in the background to handle non Poweramp audio, if Poweramp hi-res does bypass this layer, I can leave its setting at 48k without fear of going from 44.1 to 96 to 48.
