  1. Not sure, because they work independently from each other
  2. Another useful info. According to the findings from the post below, it's better to turn off bit/banwidth mode and to use only bit mode or to turn the UHQ completely https://www.head-fi.org/threads/analyzing-samsung-uhq-upscaler-with-measurements-on-galaxy-note-8-exynos.873550/
  3. My advice will be to use 48Khz or divisible rates, as Samsungs and as far as I heard majority of smartphones has only one oscillator which works with 48 Khz and it's better to upscale a bit tracks with more widespread 44.1 Khz.
  4. The screen is not from the Hi-Res output menu, btw.

    Poweramp Build 821

    It works with other outputs too. And as it should be DVC disables it

    Poweramp Build 821

    Even if I have an error massage saying that it's not working (v820)? Like here: Secondly, AFAK you have one of these Samsungs if I activate DVC it will disable Adapt Sound, won't it?

    On my Note 9 Hi-Res without DVC for 3,5 doesn't work
  8. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960F Android 9 firmware N960FXXU2CRLT Hi-res worked before the last Android 9 update. When I try to use the output the error message pops up and Open SL ES is used

    Hi-Res not working on LG V10 Nougat

    @andrewilley Is it neccessary to post in the high-res thread if my phone had high-res before and after the Android update it doesn't have it?

    I have the same on my Galaxy Note 9 but with the latest available Android Pie build.

    distorted sound with my Samsung Galaxy S9+ after update

    I'd suggest you to turn off bandwidth upscaling as this function even long before the update distorts sound. If you want I can provide you with measurements as a proof. Plus, generally there is no sense in upscaling at all. The only function which I use is the bit upscaling as it helps a bit to reduce noise. As for me the last Pie update led that there is an error message pops up when I plug-in my earbuds denying me to use Hi-Res output.

    Detail Sound

    +1 If your phone has such function it should be available throgh the audio fx button. It's a surround sound at first place, not the detail sound.

    Edgelighting support.

    What the Edgelighting is for in the PA? I'm asking, because I have the Samsung too.

    "Hi-Res" Really??

    If we're speaking about people's hearing it's a very subjective field. Although I should admit that defined numbers or measures won't bring us much truth. We still listen to music with ears. From my experience I can say that if we're talking about a decent home audio system mp3 and FLAC can be relatively easy distinguished, also I did some test in the car with mp3 and aac, but it's another story. Yes, from the point of view of human senses it'd not be. For me Hi-Res can be just a gurantee to our inernal paranoid perfectionist. P.S. Mainly I download music so I don't pay for it.

    "Hi-Res" Really??

    Well that's a very dubious argument, from my point of view of course. If we are talking about old music and lossy/lossless format of course it'd better to have a lossless variant, because lossy formats still cut off a lot of information and you can't say for sure what is cut off. I heard the same opinion that it's wise to store the old music in the lossy formats, because "lossy format for lo-fi", however i consider the opposite, firstly as i mentioned before it's better to preserve the original source (tape or vinyl) in digital format with the help of lossless which gives more headroom or guarantee that nothing will be lost. Lossy can't assure that, because it's not his aim. Secondly it's an off topic but I store everything in FLAC, but listen in lossy for the sake of convenience, and because of that I can change lossy formats easily with converting them. Finally what I'm implying (that's why I've written alll the above) is that even Hi-res (16+/44.1+) can give some advancement: but, Firstly it'd rather be dependent upon the source, music, remaster or original (the issue with harshness) etc. And secondly it's likely that the advancement will be inaudible in most cases due to hearing or hardware limitations. P.S. harshness can be sometimes related not to Hi-Res, lossless issue but to equipment and production of the music.
