  1. Hello, is it possible to enable native 44.1 playback on my moto G5s, so that I need not resample CD tracks in advance on my PC (16/44.1) to 16/48 sample rate to avoid resampling on mobile device - or better said avoid resampling at all? Thank you, log attached lower.

  2. I don't know the internals of Android, but the concept of "application volume" and "system volume" ain't applicable for this OS? For sure there is a 16 bit, 48 kHz pipe that sound playback must go through in majority of Android phones, and we can adjust volume before that pipe or after that pipe. As I wrote now I am satisfied with the DVC sound, so I keep it on.
  3. Ok thank you that I also read and it supports the hypothesis that dvc controls the system volume instead of the stream that goes into 16 bit "pipe". Which would be good. But I think that it should better confirmed.
  4. Nobody knows the mechanism of Direct Volume Control? Sounds good but I would like to know how it works.
  5. Hello, I am using Poweramp latest version (paid) on Moto G5S. Generally I do not use any equalizers - I prefer flat playback, I know that resampling to 48000 Hz and dithering to 16 bit is neccessary on Android since my phone has no 24 bit support. When I disable DVC sound volume is lower and a little bit "thinner", whereas when enabled it is louder. When I started to use Poweramp I left DVC disabled, but recently with the new builds I enabled it and started to like the new sound better than with DVC disabled. I would like to ask what exactly the Direct Volume Contr
  6. Hello, thanks for this great version. It may be my listening bias, but since this version I think that the sound is a little bit smoother and less grainy that I perceived with the some of previous versions. I use Sox, 95.4 (or 90.5 passband), modified-e-weighted dither, standard 16/48 headphone output on Moto G5S (Android 7.1.1)
  7. Yes that is true that the EQ etc. settings can be very useful. On the other hand is would be nice to allow "bitperfect" playback of AAC through bluetooth. Direct AAC (e.g. from ITunes or encoded from FLAC) has decent quality.
  8. that is a pity, therefore aac files are reencoded again to sbc or aac (whatever headphones support) which degrades quality :(
  9. Hello, does current Poweramp support direct (without reencoding) AAC (e.g. iTunes ) files playback over headphones that support AAC codec? If so how it can be set up ? Jan
  10. Hello, first to say: Poweramp is great for Android and I use the paid version. I have question about Resampler/Dithering. I highly appreciate this possibility with SoX since unfortunately Android now is limited to 16/48 output (i do not use external DAC with my phone). I have some files in 16/44.1 format and some files in 16/48 format (I use offline resampling beforehand for some tracks and some files I have in 48 kHz format native sample rate). I assume that Resampler only kicks in if the input file has different sample rate than 48000 Hz, if I play back 48000 Hz files it
