For nearly as long as I've been using Poweramp (many years) I have had issues with various files crackling and popping. It isn't every file, but I have not been able to find a pattern. It definitely occurs more on hi-res files (FLAC 24/44.1 or 24/48 or 24/96). I've attempted disabling DVC per output, for the whole app, and for the whole system (in developer options). I'm not using equalizers, or any other audio enhancements. Buffer is set to maximum.
No matter what I try, the issue persists. I just can't figure it out. I'm currently using build 860, but this has been occurring since v2. I tried to attach a file but it's too big. Can anyone assist with this issue? Poweramp is so close to perfect...but this issue drives me nuts.
Edit: forgot to mention, this occurs both on my wired headphones (focal utopia) and my car when using android auto or bluetooth. Also a earpiece over bluetooth generates the same crackling.
