  1. Uh, just a curiosity here since I don't feel it's been made clear enough; What's the difference between this (706/707) and the "older" beta (790)? Haven't tried running either yet but judging by the version numbering I'd assume 706/707 are relatively minor updates from the, at this point, rather old 705 build (mainly for compatibility purposes and some minor bugfixes) as opposed to being further updates to the rather more experimental build 790 which dropped rather recently as well. Is this correct?
  2. This is incorrect. Based on your descriptions it sounds like you've simply downloaded different versions of the same song from different sources and equated that because there is a difference it must be because of the format. This is untrue. One common misconception is that louder is better; This is false as well. If you take two identical audio tracks and make one louder than the other, it will psychologically be perceived as better due to being louder despite being otherwise identical. Now, remember there will be differences between different tracks; The same song will not necessar
  3. @ACE7F22 @ToaneeM Then I invite you two to do a full double blind test and tell me if you can actually tell the difference because I sure can't with notably higher performing equipment than what a mere phone is capable of. Even IF there is a difference you speak of, it's so small that if I and a bunch of other people can't make it out on any of the tests I've conducted on a variety of dedicated DAC/AMP combinations with numerous different high-end headphones including some HD800, Hifiman, STAX etc. you'd very likely impossibly be able to tell the difference using a mobile integrated dac/a
  4. I'm sorry but there is several things that are factually incorrect about this. Firstly, the "Only sampling 2 times" has been proven through the Nyqvist theorem to be enough to reproduce the full soundwave indetically to its source. Surely we can capture more points and such but that's completely redundant because only 2 samples is actually needed to perfectly reproduce an identical analog signal. Sure the real world isn't flawless but the little bit of extra leeway added with 44.1 and 48kHz (over the theoretical requirement of 40kHz) is enough to eliminate these. Thus, there is no other r
  5. More than likely that difference is because it's two different versions of the same track and not just a plain 16bit vs 24bit. If you instead take the 24 bit file and downconvert it to 16bit and do a blind test to compare, I doubt you'd be able to hear the difference. All the bit depth does is affect the amplitude range. 16 bit is plenty for playing at a loud rock concert at full volume. By the time you would need more than 16 bits you would already be at the point where you'd have turned the volume up so loud either the speakers would have already broken or your permanently damaged you
  6. Oh pardon my misspelling. Harry Nyquist was born in Sweden as Harry Theodor Nyqvist. I'm not entirely sure why his last name is more commonly spelled as Nyquist and not Nyqvist but he may have changed it as he emigrated to the US. Either way here in Sweden the spelling with a v is the most common one and is an old/alternative spelling for the Swedish word "Kvist", meaning a piece of a wooden branch or a twig. Despite being spelled with a u, it is still pronounced with a hard v-sound due to said origin. A lot of Scandinavian last names have their origin in nature, actually. Either way, tha
  7. This is incorrect. More samples does mean more data but it does not equate to more detail. This does not work the same as, say, frames per second in a movie or something of the like. Having more samples per second is effectively just more of the same. As per the Nyqvist theorem, 2 samples per reproduced frequency has been mathematically proven to be enough to reproduce the recorded sound in its entirety. Adding more samples is practically just adding more dots to fill in an already perfect sine wave. This is the basically adding extra redundant points to a mathematical graph when you alre
  8. No. Flac is like a zip file, you can compress a wav into flac and then extract the identical wav file back from the flac file again just fine. The audio data that comes out of your headphones or speakers will be identical regardless if you use wav or flac. You're telling me my Sennheiser HD800 are not good enough headphones to hear the difference? Ok, let me ask you if you actually know what you are talking about. First off, let's address 192kHz vs 48Khz. If you're familiar with the Nyqvist theorem it is a scientific theorem that proves you need a sample frequency that i
  9. To be fair, high-res audio is more of a marketing ploy and a myth. I mean, unless you can actually hear dog whistles there is very little reason to go above the standard 44.1kHz ...
  10. Gingerbread? Damn, I hate to say it but you're probably due for a new phone.. That OS is over 5 years old and I don't expect any real support coming for it - rather more and more apps will stop being compatible with it. Supporting older Android versions, for developers, is just a major hassle that causes a bunch of unnecessary issues and time wasting with the only end result that people running a version that's like half a decade old can use the app.
  11. Huh, cause I have a faint memory of accidentally setting a rating on my PC on a song that showed up in Poweramp after I copied the file to my device.. I might be mistaken though, or perhaps it just reads rating tags but doesn't write to them?
  12. I thought this already was implemented? Perhaps it depends on what file type you're using?
