  1. Even if it worked it wouldn't be using the ESS Sabre DAC, it'd use the SD 820's built-in DAC/amp and sound significantly worse. On my Axon 7 enabling it works but it sounds so inferior, much the same as without it, that I use the horrendous stock player to use my phone's main DAC/amp as nothing else supports it.
  2. That's false because they can't pick and choose the components of an SoC. It stands for System on a Chip for a reason, that's exactly what it is, the 24 bit DAC on that thing isn't magically removed. Whether or not it's active is one thing, but it's 100% there, and Poweramp sounds so different from the stock player that it wouldn't be surprising if it really is using that 24 bit DAC.
  3. The 24 bit output you were using before with Poweramp was actually not the A7's AKM AK4490EN DAC, it was the SD 820's built-in sound processing. I guarantee if you use the garbage stock music app and listen to some lossless files with high end headphones you'll notice there is an obvious quality difference, and that's with the stock music app (or the firmware?) actually truncating any 24 bit files to 16 bit. Basically I'm saying if you really wanted to use the A7 for hi-fi sound, you're stuck using the buggy trash tier stock music app unless there's another music player which works with i
  4. It does work, I meant it doesn't work with the Axon 7's main DAC, it outputs sound using the wrong DAC. Hi-res output works by using the Snapdragon 820's built-in 24 bit DAC, which unfortunately sounds like rubbish compared to the phone's main DAC. It wouldn't bother me if it weren't a clear difference in sound even with mid tier headphones. As far as I know the stock music app on the Axon 7 actually truncates 24 bit sound to 16 bit (maybe this is even on a firmware level, no one who knows would answer me), and even despite that the AK4490EN DAC sounds noticeably better, all the way from lows
  5. Unfortunately V2 doesn't work either and would use a different DAC as well. Either way thank you for your response, the fact that only one person is working on it explains a bit. I guess I'll just have to wait it out, there's already been plenty of requests for support of the DAC on my phone model (Axon 7) so I'm hoping the next update supports it.
  6. Hasn't it been something like 8 months since Alpha 703? I can't even use Poweramp anymore since it can't recognize my new phone's main DAC. There's plenty of people in the request thread, I would have thought there'd be an update to at least add DAC recognition so people can at least use the app. I'm curious, why has it been so long since the last update? I'm pretty eagerly awaiting the DAC support to be updated, as my phone's stock music app (the only thing I know for sure can use it's DAC) is pretty abysmal.
  7. 1 - Axon 7 A2017U. 2 - Android 6.0.1. 3 - As already posted in this thread multiple times, it has a 32 bit AKM DAC, and the audio policy file for this model has already been posted.
  8. I'm having the same issue with the same story, using a stock based ROM back from Cyanogen Mod. But I don't see any such option you're referring to. In fact I can't even find a Google result on how to revert to the non-beta version of Power Amp. I don't know how long it's been like this, but the buffer size is under each individual output setting. I'm assuming that's new because I didn't see any such option for a buffer size in the beta before.
