  1. I must be missing something... How does today's status update differ from the one in April last year?

    Essential PH-1

    Answering my own question. The DAC in the USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is a Conexant CX20985. It's maximum resolution is 48kHz. The Experimental high-resolution in Poweramp doesn't recognize the DAC. Since buying the phone a couple of weeks ago the Oreo 8.1 beta has come out and Poweramp has issues there too. I'm using Neutron for the time being, until there's an updated Poweramp.

  4. Interestingly Max appears more interested in providing updates and screenshots from the development builds to a couple of Russian members of this forum than to the moderator. This material design update project makes no sense whatsoever. There is no valid explanation for why it's taking so long to update the UI of a music player. There is also no valid reason why Oreo problems with the current 704 build can't be fixed. Source code managers support branching and you can fix problems in a branch (704) without affecting development in the main branch. You can even commit fixes to multiple branches.
  5. Is anyone using the Essential PH-1 phone with Poweramp 704 using the USB-C to 3.5mm adapter? Does high resolution work? (I searched for the phone in both the request topic and confirmation topic and didn't see it mentionned)
  6. I was a software developer for 20 years and I can't understand how it can take two years to revamp the UI to Material Design for an app like Poweramp. There's roughly 3500 work hours in two years. Even if only a fraction were spent working on this, how many screens are there in an app like Poweramp?
  7. I updated my Galaxy S6 from Marshmallow and Poweramp build 703 to Nougat and Poweramp build 704 a week ago. Poweramp has been essentially unusable since. I'm getting a ton of audio glitches / hiccups, as much as a couple of times in a song. I have tried playing with the buffer size / number of buffer settings. I even tried the Huge setting as well as Custom settings with the max size and number of buffers and these appear to make no difference whatsoever. I'm playing Flac files at CD resolution and have selected the Experimental output. I've reinstalled the Onkyo HD player which is working fine right now. Ironically, this is the app that I used on iOS and tried briefly when I moved to Android a year ago. It had glitches so I gave up on it and bought Poweramp, which had worked fine until I upgraded to Nougat. Now it's the other way around. I would still like to get Poweramp working since it's a much nicer app overall.
