  1. Poweramp Version: v3-build-853-arm64-play Device: Xiaomi Mi A3 (M1906F9SH) Android: 9 (default, Android One, security patches up to October, kernel 4.14.98-perf+) First of all, I want to thank you for adding support of Hi-Res Output for the Xiaomi A3 with one of the new versions of Poweramp. I have to say that the sound over Hi-Res has quite a bit more dynamic range. But the loudness of the output through Hi-Res seems to be too high. Loud sound peaks are distorted. Switching between SL Output und Hi-Res reveals that Hi-Res output seems to be +6db too loud. I have to use set PreAmp in the EQ setting to -6db in order to get a non-distorted signal. Also if I switch DVC on and off I get a signal that is too loud with DVC on. Tested with bluetooth output. Should I turn off DVC in this case? Will I lose the gain in dynamics I had before?
  2. I have got a new Smartphone: Xiaomi Mi A3 Unfortunately OpenSL ES Hi-Res does not work on this device. Poweramp can play MP3s neither via Bluetooth nor via jack plugs. The playback just hangs. No Error message. OpenSL ES does work. Device: Xiaomi Mi A3 Modelname: M1906F9SH OS: Stock Android One, Android 9, Build PKQ1.190416.001.V10.3.5.0.PFQEUXM Poweramp Build: 840-841 I would be really happy if HiRes could also be implemented on this device.
  3. After upgrading to Poweramp v3 I have tried 3 different Bluetooth reveivers with all 3 audio engines: OpenSL ES, OpenSL ES Hi-Res and AudioTrack. All of the BT receivers report they can only process 16 bit and 44 kHz. Does it make sense to use OpenSL ES Hi-Res with a higher resolution if the target device can only handle 16 bit 44 kHz? I thought I would hear a slightly improved quality with Hi-Res but this could be a placebo effect. Should I stay with OpenSL ES (without Hi-Res) to ensure a continuous 16 bit 44 kHz signal processing? Or is there any added value if I choose higher resolution signal processing despite the lower resolution of the target device?
  4. I have been using Poweramp v2 for many years. At home, at work, in the car, everywhere I listen to music using this wonderful music player. I always had some problems with gapless on my Moto G5 and my music library on a SD card, but that was bearable. Now my phone has been updated to Android 8.1 and the integration of Poweramp v2 into the new GUI didn't work properly anymore. So I decided to install V3. And what should I say? I am excited! What's all the crying about in the forum or in the revenues? Is it only because you've got an update that looks different? You can argue about taste, but for me it is fact: The new GUI is superfluid. More fluid than v2 It fits much better into the GUI of the OS The handling much better The settings are cleaner The sound is still awesome (using DVC)! The sound can theoretically be even better with OpenSL ES Hi-res And above all: I got the update for free, although the developer could have built and sold a completely new app Many, many thanks @maxmp for the new version of Poweramp. I really appreciate it! And I am sure that many others see it the same way!
