  1. Answering part of my own question, let me quote what CWD, who supports the Nyrius Songo, wrote to me after a few email exchanges. "I have confirmed that whenever any audio is played through Bluetooth, it is recompressed and encoded either using SBC or APTX, this will result in a loss in quality more so on the standard Bluetooth devices, less so on APTX capable transmitters. Because the Songo HiFi connects using an Aux cable, what codecs the destination device support is a moot point it is not like a USB connection that may be able to differentiate. Unfortunately if you are looking for 100% rep
  2. Like the dozens of enthusiastic people asking for DLNA support, I want to stream from a portable device (a tablet I purchased solely to be a Poweramp dedicated mp3 player) to my stereo. It is possible that Bluetooth, not DLNA, is the answer. As interested readers know, DLNA is a wireless standard capable of the transmission of audio from portable devices to WiFi receivers at CD levels of fidelity. Poweramp does not support DLNA, but some people have succeeded in connecting it to Audio Cast via BubbleUPnP in a rooted phone. (I have succeeded in doing that with an HP Touchpad running Cyanogenm
  3. Lots more experiments, and finally success. What I learned: * .cue file must be UTF-8 encoded. PSPad freeware is one way to ensure this. Notepad is known to not be consistent with this. * the "FILE" line in the .cue file must have the exact file name with the right extension. (I found that all my FILE lines ended with the word WAVE even though all the files are .mp3. This does not seem to matter.) * the file name for the .mp3 file and the file name for the .cue file must be otherwise identical, and in the same folder. * the PERFORMER line in the header and the PERFORMER line in all the track
  4. I have some albums that I have encoded as one big mp3 file with an associated .cue file. One set of those (4 sides of a two-disk set of LPs I digitized in 2002) works correctly. On all the others (encoded from CDs using the software from the Hango PJB-100, perhaps the first mp3 player), Poweramp acts as though there is no .cue file. It treats the mp3 file as a single track. These files worked correctly with my PJB-100 player, RIP. I have read in searching the forums that the .cue file must be UTC-8 encoded, and I have verified that they are. I have read that the "FILE" line in the .cue file
  5. Thank you again, Andre, for the thoughts. It did not occur to me that the tablet icons would give me a menu for the app. When I said I had tried "press and hold" on every part of the display, what I shoudl have said was I tried press and hold on every part of the Poweramp display, but not the bottom bar. The tablet bottom bar had a return icon, a home icon, and a "stack" icon. A long press of the stack icon brings up settings, and I could go from there. One of the settings restored the three dots menu icon to other screens. The default that does not include the three dots certainly caused me
  6. Thanks for the thoughts, Andre. Sadly, there is no hardware menu key. And there are no three-dots-in-a-column icons on any screen. I've been through the tablet settings and can't find anything related. There is a hardware key that allows power off, reboot, profile, and airline mode, speaker on/off, and on other icon that seems only to turn off the selections. There is another hardware button that pulls up the volume control, with another icon that pulls up speaker, alarm and one other level. It is sounding like Poweramp is incompatible with my hardware. That is a surprising answer.
  7. I would like to customize Poweramp. For example, I want to change the view in the Library to be in order of Album Artist. But I cannot find any way to access options. I saw an early YouTube video on a phone screen that found "settings" by swiping up from the bottom. I have swiped from every edge of the Album display of the library, and from the main window. I have found "settings" in the tablet settings, but it has none of these kind of options. I have looked for the "menu" key, which I suppose looks like a down-arrow in a circle. I have done "press and hold" on every part of the display. No
