    USB AUX adapter not recognized as USB DAC. Google/Moshi

    So, an app update appeared a short time ago today (V3-build-811-play) With "better USB DAC recognition on some devices" listed in the the changes. This new version, both the Google USB C to AUX and the MOSHI adapter are recognized by PA as a USB DAC now and High Res output on my Pixel 3! That is excellent improvement. However, my FiiO Alpen 2 E17K USB DAC still is stuck at 16/48 and won't do its proper 24/96 that it will do on my 1st gen Pixel XL. That DAC would nice to get working correctly, but I just picked up a FiiO BTR3 that is BT 5.0 and LDAC and that sounds pretty damn close in quality to the wired E17K and makes my VMODA Crossfade Wireless headphones proper BT wireless. (the BT chip built into the headphones is only SBC). Thanks for your continued work on Poweramp!
  2. I have a Fiio Aplen 2 E17K USB DAC amplifier. 24bit/96Khz Use it on my Pixel XL (1st Gen) and now my new Pixel 3. When not connected to anything, it defaults to displaying 16bit/48Khz. when u connect it to a deice, I changes and you can hear a slight noise in the headphones when it does. On the Pixel XL, the Fiio DAC lcd screen says when its connected, 24bit/96Khz, stays that way. Power Amp detects the DAC by name and says it is outputting 32bit/96Khz OpenSL ES High-Res. On the new Pixel 3, the Fiio DAC lcd screen says when first connected 24/96, but as soon as any sound is made , it changes to 16bit/48Khz and stays at that. Power Amp detects the DAC by name and says it is outputting 24bit/48Khz OpenSL ES High-Res. What is going on here between these 2 phones? I have used this DAC along with the current version of PA v3 on other phones, Nexus 5X, Moto X Pure, and those all behave identical to the 1st gen Pixel XL. The audio, to me, sounds a bit better, more clarity and sound stage when on the Pixel XL, but I am a bit confused as to why PA is doing 32bit output in that use case. And now, of course, why the Pixel 3 isnt doing 96Khz when the DAC supports it, and why the DAC is reverting that is doing 24/28. Maybe things is just not being reporting correctly and when PA says its doing 32bit, it actually is doing 24, and on the P3, it says 24, but it actually is 16??? Help? Any ideas?
  3. Moshi USB-C Digital Audio Adapter (2nd gen) with charging P/N: 99MO084246 24-bit/96khz Currently is read as Internal Headphone/AUX and is locked to 16bit/48khz and no HD Audio support. Since the AUX jack and built in DAC's on the phone are going away, the standard on all Flagship phones now....these external USB DAC's adapters "dongles" are the only way and support for them is a must to stay a usable high quality audio music player app.

    USB AUX adapter not recognized as USB DAC. Google/Moshi

    For me, the point of this topic thread...is that the USB dongle adapter DAC is not detected as an external DAC with HD audio support, as it is and should be. AND that one adapter that is advertised to do 24-bit/96khz, is not detected as so or outputs in that way with Poweramp...where another USB DAC is detected and does. I know this Moshi adapter does work at 24-bit/96khz when i hook up to my pc. And yes, there a big difference in audio quality when the DAC is stuck in 16bit/48khz.

    What Ui Do You Prefer?

    The new look is certainly more modern looking. Sleek. I don't like Swipe navigation....but the phones OS themselves are going this way...so, can't avoid this it seems. I struggle allot with this, but am starting to get used to it and re-train my self. The biggest negative i have with the new UI is the terrible behind the buttons Seek "bar". It is very hard to use. Much preferred the previous V2 style of a simple and separated line(bar) under the buttons.

    That doesn't make sense. Why would they do this tough as they have an independent DAC in the adapter...same as my Fiio USB DAC.
  7. I just got the official Google "Headphone Adapter" USB C to AUX...(the same one that comes with the Pixel 3.) I also got the better Moshi USB-C Digital Audio Adapter (2nd gen) with charging P/N: 99MO084246 24-bit/96khz Both purchased from Google Store. Poweramp v3 build 805-play Full version does not see these adapters as USB DAC, but as "Wired Headset/AUX". No option to enable OpenSL ES HD output. I am testing these out on my 1st Gen Pixel XL....before I spend the money on the Pixel 3. Sound routes through them fine, but using the non HD and oly at 16bit/48khz...even on the one with the better DAC. Is this a Poweramp thing...or is it that I am using these on a 1st gen Pixel? Anyone with these same adapters can confirm that they have working HD output on any Pixel phone?

    Poweramp beta build-792

    Found the issue. When u have "Background Details" set to 0 Solid Color....and then set Intensity to 0, it still changes colors, sometimes it changes to all white and the buttons kinda vanish. I rest the page to default settings then just set Intensity to 0, now it stays black. Thanks!

    is there a quick toggle for the EQ presets on the now playing screen? So far I can only change my preset if i open the full EQ page....in the old version u tapped the button on the top the slide out window had the EQ toggle.

    How do you set the player background color to always black...and not change with each song?

    There no updates for my headunit(BT762HD) since 2015. They don't ever seem to update them. The metadata thing been working fine even in 8.1 until recently. I havn't changed any of those settings and they are enabled. And yea, your way out of date if your on 6.0.1 rom. My Pixel XL is on 8.1.0 July 5 '18 update.

    Noticed that Poweramp is no longer sending track info over BT to my cars Kenwood head unit. Not sure when that started happen. I worked fine a month or so ago, maybe the July 5 update for my Pixel XL broke it? Not a big deal. Also had the cant verify license popup thing once today, but it went away and still works fine.
