  1. I'm having issues with cover art. Of maybe 1000 albums, 92 albums refuse to load the embedded cover art. Even for these offending albums, I placed the album art in a .jpg/.png in the album folder, none of which exceed 4mb, and when selecting them manually, the default image still remains.

  2. I'll continue to make noise about this issue.


    FiiO X5 3rd Generation, build 838.


    Hi Res Output is bugged. Occasionally locks itself to 16 bit / 192 kHz, on headphone output, labeled wired headset/aux.

    And Balanced headphone output and line out are labeled as SPEAKER. And locked to OpenSL ES 16/48. I understand this is probably common practice for cell phones that have an earpiece and speaker. But this is not a cell phone. It is a digital audio player with three wired outputs.


    Is this anything in the scope of development that you ever plan to address? I've made posts in bug reports thread. I've made an official bug report. What does it take to get an answer around here?

    Sorry, I don't understand what do you mean music have to be ragged,Is it mean I should add music tag info like artist and album information at first?

    By the way,which source should I choose between album and track?

    Thank you!

    This way so you don't have to re-add your music to your device. Foobar2000 for android has a built in RG scanner, just scan your library in that, it will edit the tags. Uninstall foobar2000, go back into Poweramp and turn on replay gain normalization.

  4. FiiO X5iii STILL lacks Direct HD - Hi Res output option on 2.5mm balanced headphone output and 3.5mm line out connection.

    Please provide a test build or something to work this out. Why are these outputs viewed as "speaker" in Poweramp, and restricted to OpenSL ES at 16/48?

    Please at least notify users of these limitations, every single time I see FiiO Hi Res in the changelogs you give me hope and every time I'm let down.

  5. Direct HD / Hi Res Output NOT Available on all device's outputs.

    Poweramp's Hi Res Output is only available for the device's 3.5mm headphone output.

    When headphones are plugged into the device's 2.5mm balanced headphone output, output is RESTRICTED to OpenSL ES at 16/48.

    The same is true for the device's 3.5mm Line Out.

    Balanced and Line Out are both viewed by Poweramp as "Speaker". 

    "Speaker" cannot be unselected in the OpenSL ES menu. It reselects itself automatically.

    It is not even listed in the Hi Res menu. Only Wired/AUX and USB-DAC are found in the Hi Res menu.

    The Headphone Output is viewed by Poweramp as Wired Headset/AUX, and receives 32/192 kHz Hi Res output.

    Using Android Debug Bridge tools (adb shell, dumpsys media.audio_flinger), in players such as UAPP and Neutron, I can confirm the balanced and line outputs output 192 kHz and even 384 kHz (with forced up sampling).

    It would seem you do not have my particular device to test these builds properly.

  6. @maxmp what kind of testing can be done to get hi res working on the FiiO X5iii properly? I have DVC and everything else turned off, as I don’t care about EQ or modifying my sound in SW. There’s no clear indication why for any reason only the headphone output offers hi res output. Again this device like the M11 and other DAPs have MULTIPLE OUTPUTS. Why is it restricted to only one of them?

  7. Device I’m using is FiiO X5iii, build 834.

    I guess as of 829 hi res output has been “working” upon restoring defaults on the main outputs page? I do receive 32/192 kHz when playing only from its headphone output. This registers as Wired Headset / AUX. Every now and then this restricts itself to 16/192 but I can always get it back by restoring defaults and unplugging and replugging in my headphones.

    But if I want to use my balanced headphone output, or line out (both register as Speaker), OpenSL ES Output 16/48 is STRICTLY forced. I’m able to verify with dumpsys media.audio_flinger that other media players in those outputs aren’t restricted in such a way.

    I’ll try build 835 inevitably but it doesn’t explicitly list any changes on this front..

    Again, on behalf of the many people requesting support for FiiO X5iii devices. What's the hold up?

    You've got the best UI of any player out there.

    I've purchased this app twice, once on google play and once directly. And it still FAILS to support what a beta release of it did 2 years ago.

    FiiO X5iii - 2x AKM 4490EN DAC's. These support 16/44.1 up through 32/384 and all multiples in between.

    Android 5.1.1

    I don't know why it's so difficult, but this device has three wired outputs, an unbalanced headphone connection, a balanced headphone connection, and a line out connection. Is this the source of the problems? I previously included screenshots explaining that only the first of these is barely supported by Poweramp. Only by selecting "disable speaker during hi res" and restarting the application does 16/192 even show up when a cable is connected to unbalanced 3.5mm headphone output. Every other connection reverts to 16/48.


  9. 1. FiiO X5 3rd Generation

    2. Android 5.1.1 , Custom Rom (Fidelizer) Based off of Firmware v1.2.2

    3. See file format support listed here and attached audio policy. Stock music app, USB Audio Player Pro, and Neutron all support its hi res playback.

    When headphone cable is connected to player's unbalanced 3.5mm headphone output, output switches over to "Wired Headset/AUX" but is only active at 16bit/192kHz. When line out cable is connected to player's 3.5mm line out, output switches over to "Speaker" and reverts to OpenSL ES at 16bit/48kHz. When headphone cable is connected to player's 2.5mm balanced headphone output, it remains same as "Speaker" and uses OpenSL ES at 16bit/48kHz. Very odd! Using build 820.
