  1. My USB DAC is not detected. Maybe a exclusive mode may be necessary for it to work like UAPP or Hiby have as it works on those players? Using SMSL iDEA with Moto X Style on Pie Android.
  2. @xander71 The current version of Poweramp will use hi res even if your device does not support it. The final call whether the final output is in high resolution or not is based on whats inside audio_policy.config and the android audio mixer. In your 1st picture you can see that the output is at 24 bit 192khz, on the second one the info you get is that your audio file is standard resolution, medium quality mp3 and that the dsp is mixing at 32bit 192khz but have no info on the output and is what actually matters. On the 3rd picture, well I assume that viper uses a custom audio driver that
  3. @AXAT That's the normal Oreo notification effect. @spenat I think wether the notification is always expanded or not is rom dependant.
  4. It's now easy to understand why it took so long to provide this update to Poweramp, all those animations and logic behind it must have been difficult to make and debug. Nice ones BTW. Now regarding audio, @jds65 was the only one who actually bothered to see if his device (android audio mixer) was actually rendering audio in high resolution which may not always be the case. Like @maxmp said "NOTE: no device detection implemented yet for the new OpenSL HD Output, it will happily report it plays hi-res, even if device doesn't actually support Hi-Res Audio". It's easy to check (with roo
  5. Actually it's different, UAPP uses a custom driver so it bypasses the Android audio mixer (don't know about neutron) while all other players use the Android audio mixer and native USB driver. So it does make a difference. One can be bit perfect while the other cannot. Also UAPP can feed a DSD stream directly to the DAC while Poweramp decodes the file and feeds a PCM stream to the DAC (DSD decoding is very demanding).
  6. In what? There's no in or out. This is just software. Fortunately with software you can use lots of it, like different programs. It's not like I'm telling you to not use Poweramp, it's more like you can check other options while you wait of you want.
  7. What is there to regret? One can always return to Poweramp. I'm using UAPP and has features that Poweramp does not have.
  8. @PeterFalk Buy a new app? Why? I'm using Oreo and the only issue with the 3.x alpha is the notifications but that has a fix already. @JJ Singh I'm using USB Audio Player Pro, that was recommended my another user here on the forums.
  9. All the bashing towards an unreleased piece of software that is a free upgrade is uncalled for. All you've bought was Poweramp 2.x, any upgrades are a bonus. And if anyone complains about "hi res" support, the player you purchased didn't had it anyways. Although I'm also waiting of it to be released I've moved to another player, so either do as I did or just wait untill "beta" release, no point in "complaining".
  10. I'm currently using UAPP because someone recommended it here and even got a proper USB DAC to go along with it. Been enjoying bit perfect non-equalized music ever since.
  11. @Stevieex23 All devices that output audio have a DAC, the style although using a SD808 does not use the SD DAC but other solution that has a fixed bit depth of 16bits and a 48kHz sample rate. So no it does not support 24bit audio rendering, even if you use the Samsung trick to fool Poweramp into enabling 24bit audio output the android mixer will render the audio as 16bit 48kHz. @JJ Singh No one is saying that you shouldn't use the high resolution output but trying to explain why a standard resolution stream has no noise and why you may have noise in standard resolution output. The only
  12. If you listen to noise with low volume the problem is in the audio implementation on your device. The high res implementation used by Poweramp probably bypasses the Android audio resampler that is awful (in your device) and that's why you no longer hear noise. Dynamic range has nothing to do with noise. I have no issues with either the internal DAC of my device (Moto X Style) or my USB DAC (smsl idea) using AKG Y50 headphones (links with audio quality reviews embedded). Mate your idea of high resolution audio is not good, just read this and see why high res audio is a gimmi
  13. You're aware that the difference between 16bit and 24bit is dynamic range right? It's the difference between the loudest and the most silent sounds. 16bit has a 96dB range while 24bit has a 144dB range. The human ear has a "static" range of about 60dB so even undithered 16 bit audio has more range than the human ear. Now surely there's some problem if you can ear floor noise on your equipment with 16bit audio. Also aren't you confusing 24bit decoding that all players do with 24bit audio output (rendering)?
  14. Are you saying that you can distinguish between a 16bit and a 24bit stream? Really?
  15. And why is that? UAPP has network support (including SMB and shoutcast), parametric equalizer (in-app purchase), bit perfect direct audio output including DSD output (bypassing Android audio mixer), subscription audio support (tidal, google, etc), real support for internal and external dacs with custom driver. Thanks to UAPP I now enjoy music without any equalization and a proper USB dac (smsl idea). You don't know what you're talking about.
  16. If your internal DAC supports high res then yes. For me the problem is the usage of android mixer to output audio instead of a direct path to the DAC.
  17. @César Carmona No, this is a music player, should have high quality audio output, friendly interface and feature rich. You're not supposed to be staring at the player but to listen to the music it plays back. Also what's the point of copying other players? If black player is so good why don't you use it? I'm using UAPP with a USB DAC btw.
  18. @andrewilley And as a I said "Most likely he has nothing to deliver." I'm currently alpha testing an audio player app and the dev is delivering unfortunately I can't say more due to NDA. Again, it's a shame this app is development is "dead".
  19. @Palmalat37 @Prekratic That's rubbish! You have alpha and beta versions for a reason! To test! He could release those only in the forums and receive feedback. Most likely he has nothing to deliver. So either the users use V2 / V3 alpha or use something else, I changed to UAPP. It's a shame that a feature rich app is "dead".
  20. Surely he has ones otherwise what would be the point of high resolution audio? I too enjoy bit perfect audio, from the decoder direct to the dac!
  21. Actually no and that's the difference between UAPP and the rest of the players, UAPP uses a custom made driver to directly access the usb dac, the rest just use the native android driver. So UAPP totally bypasses any android mixing situations so there's nothing to see with the commands: "su dumpsys media.audio_flinger" because audio is not being processes by android audio mixer. Also my dac reports on what's receiving by the LED it has like I explained before. A simple example is the usage of DSD files, PA decodes and feeds the pcm stream while UAPP can directly f
  22. Works fine here with flac files and S.M.S.L. iDEA dac. My dac reports pcm audio up to 32bit 192khz with blue led, from that up to 32bit 768khz with purple led and DSD audio with red led. Try with some files from this site: http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html
