Almost 3 years (!) ago you asked me to send the details of my DAP, so that HiRes output could be facilitated on the Pioneer XDP-100R that I have.
I have waited for the arrival of Version 3 of your software. I had expected it would finally make it possible.
I still get the message FAILED: Hi-Res OUTPUT. Every single time I start Poweramp. I am using build 816.
Meanwhile I downloaded USB Audio Player PRO. While it lacks many elements of Poweramp, it does provide HiRes output for my DAP. The same goes for the app that came with the DAP. But sofar I prefer using Poweramp.
May I ask you again if you can make HiRes output work on the Pioneer XDP-100R?
Hi Andrew, Max.
I am using V2 since early 2016. I like the looks of V3 and I appreciate the enormous amount of work that has be done. But I am very disappointed to continue seeing: HiRes playback not supported, falling back to default (or words to that effect). My DAP is the Pioneer XDP-100R with Android 5.1. I have asked to the HiRes support years ago. Am I missing something or does your player still not do HiRes on my DAP?
Shuffle is a much used function, clearly. Changing it from one version to another is really not a good idea. Like putting the hand brake in your car to the other side of the wheel. Playing from a genre I cannot anymore long press to make my choice, as in V2, but I have to toggle through the options, making the music jump each time. Very awkward. Before I could long press a genre to choose from a shuffle menu. Now I first have to tap on the genre, then tap on an album, then tap on any song (even if it is one I don't want to hear), then long press the shuffle icon. How it is an improvement?
The lack of HiRes and the hassle with shuffle are enough to say goodbye to V3. And maybe even to Poweramp. Below are several issues that are less important, though they also spoil the experience working with Poweramp.
I checked « show album on Android lock screen », but what happens is the opposite: it disappears! Everything else remains. While it should be just the other way around.
Progress bar. Ugly. With so many other things one can switch on or off, why not this as well? You refer to 3rd party skins but in the settings it says « no 3rd party skins found ». Yes, I can choose for the seekbar to be static, but I prefer to have no seekbar at all (or the simple one from V2).
The text across the album art is ugly.
Album art. Why is it not as before, covering the whole screen?
Choosing full screen gives me a completely black screen (visualization is off) in stead of the album art.
To finish, I am not one of those people who complained about the delays all the time. But for me, after patiently waiting for two years, V3 is not a step forward. Please tell me the issues I mentioned are going to mended soon.
