  1. Hi guys! First of all, thanks @maxmp for your hard work you've done to the V3, I like the new UI, new features, etc... but of course in a music player, the most important thing is it's sounding. It looks like for me that part is need a bit more care to be good, not happy with it. My device is a Samsung Note 5 (SM-N920T) 32 GB, running on official 7.0 nougat rom, not expandable with external SD card, so I had to make a decision. I put lossy garbage to my device to save more storage for my songs, or I put acceptable, standard CD Quality files (16-bit, 44.1KHz) that not need to much storage space, but still listenable. My problem is that, I can't set up the output to use 16-bit 44.1 KHz, PA upsample songs to 48Khz and it's sounds very bad that way. I tried to configure Hi-res output, I can set the output to use 44.1 Khz, but then can't change sample format from 24-bit to 16. The volume gain drastically goes down, If I try to adjust in the EQ screen, it distorts like hell... so I don't know how can I set the output to be good. I don't want to rip all of my CD again just because of that. If anybody have a solution for that, I'd be thankful. For now, I have to downgrade too to V2. https://youtu.be/vKkZEIUuzZ4 In last word, Merry Christmas to everybody!
  2. Rainbow skin, with the default skin there's no problem, but alternative layout looks like this.
  3. Love this skin, easy & clear interface, and finally no ugly texts on the album art! ? ? Perfect! Thanks for sharing man ? P.S. JO Rocks! ? lol
  4. Somebody else noticed issues about that the current version of PA reduces the album art image sizes by half? For example a 2400 x 2400 image reduced to 1200 x 1200, and so on... In version 709, there's an option to enable display high resolution album art, so PA shows the original size embedded image. Even if there's a smaller image like 1280 x 1280 and it shows the correct size, images are looks a lil' blurry and noisy, not like in 709 where smaller images are looks more detailed also.
  5. Buttons & panels are a lil bit oversized on my screen, but with normal buttons looks ok, and the black skin is simply awesome ? Thank you for your good work?
  6. Oh, so that's why it looks like the PA using the Hi-res output, but because of V4A it plays just only 16-bit 44.1khz. Ok, so I understand now why i can use Hi-res, and why stable even it is not supported. For now I uninstalled the V4A for test it only with XtremeMusic. The result was shocked me. Now the XtremeMusic shows that it plays 32-bit 384k ultra Hi-res, but I think it just still 16-bit 44.1k This gonna be more weird and weird everytime I try to do anything else to test the Hi-res output. Lol..
  7. Hi Ok, I was browsed and reading this forum for almost a year, silently and patiently waiting for this update. (This maybe sounds incredible for 99,9999% here, especially for Andre lol. But there are people like me, yes WE exist...) So I think it's the time to say a few things. I am happy with the new version, the new UI looks so nice, I love it. Here are a few weird things I experienced. I use 3-way audio configuration because the missing Hi-res support, XtremeMusic + V4A +PA. Well configured, it sounds pretty nice together on low-end devices. I'm using a LG G4c (H522Y), running on stock 5.0 rooted with SU. PA happily reports that it plays Hi-res audio nicely (24-b, 192khz), even my device doesn't support it. I know it is a known issue, but this just weird. Running smooth, I can listen it for hours without crashes, surprisingly stable and sounds good on this device. Here's a few screens. V4A clearly shows that the Hi-res not works, but I can listen it with Hi-res output for a half day stable, without any problem and it sounds good. Just weird, anyways I'm happy with it's sound. The next thing I wanna talk about the UI. Looks awesome, surely the best UI I've ever seen on android and love it. But there are a few things I dont like. The artist - album - title text placed on the album art not looks so good at all. The like / dislike system is useless.. (Who dislikes a song on his device?) I liked the old 5-star rating way. I would love to see prev & next button too instead of swiping up-down, left-right. Gestures are cool, but tapping a button easier and faster. Visualization looks bad for me when turned on, the UI looks like a total mess, it's ugly. It would be looks way more better if used as just a background, with album art i think. I would love to have an option on the visualization settings menu to enable the album art. I would love to have the ability to adjust the album art size and the title - album- artist text size too, so you can adjust it to your screen size and the text will be not placed on the album art anymore, make the look more clear and nice. Overall I like the new version of PA, and can't wait to have the final release. Great job. Xander
