Poweramp alpha-build-703/704 in Poweramp New Releases Posted May 2, 2016 8 hours ago, johmic said: I have seen many people asking but i think has not been yet clarified. As an owner of Lg V10 i would like to know if its possible for the Ess Dac Sabre to be utilized because as i can understand the hi res support refers only to the internal 24bit Snapdragon dac.... Thanks in advance.... Agreed, Johmic. I am also itching for an answer about this. I have even noticed that Tidal Hi-Fi sounds different, dare-I-say better, when comparing identical tracks (no post-processing applied, of course). The question is quite simple: in the V10, is Poweramp Alpha using the ESS Sabre to upsample, or is it using Snapdragon circuitry ? If not using the ESS Sabre, are there plans to add support in the future (next Alpha, Beta, Official Release) ? It's a bit of a drag to hear Tidal sound better, and not at least know why ... Johmic, I have also posed the question here, as well as e-mailed Max, directly: are there plans to add the option for native resolution playback of files, opposed to strict upsampling. I like the idea of upsampling as an option, but not at the expense of native resolution playback. Especially in a library that contains different albums/songs with varied bitrates, if one is not a fan of upsampling, it's a drag to constantly change the options. But even if not, it may be safe to assume that native resolution playback would consume less power than strict upsampling --- making the option even more important. I haven't heard a reply here, nor at my inbox, from Max --- going on a week+ ... Either way, I appreciate the opportunity to voice my concerns, and continue to make Poweramp better, going forward. And as an aside, I am suspicious that Tidal uses some kind of 'in-house' EQ or crossfeed processing in their track encoding --- or possibly it's the merits of MQA ?
