  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 Control function does. Does really DVC just control the volume on hardware level, preserving maximum fidelity possible on Android? I have read somewhere that DVC acts like a compressor, that seems strange to me, since it would change the sound character of the track and would be very CPU intensive. On the other hand, if it works in such a way that it controls the volume at the phone DAC (or system) level and lets use the full 16 bit pathway (that is available) for sending the audio stream from Poweramp to android mixer, it can really help given that 16 bit dynamics is already at the edge of fidelity on playback, and if without DVC the volume reduction but be done within 16 bit stream it can make audio worse. So please experienced users explain.
  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)
