  1. this doesn't tell me the sample rate, I have Flac files at various rates between 44kHz and 192kHz, depending on the output bitrate I choose I can control which files give audible errors, hence my belief that the issue is at least related to re-sampling
  2. I have all EQ settings turned off at present.
  3. same for me too, on my FIIO M6 Poweramp would give the best UI but can't provide the same quiality sound output as UAPP or FIIO Music - both of which output at the source bitrate without resampling etc..
  4. what sample rates are the files you're playing? my suspicion is that resampling is just too much for the low power processor of the M6 and that ideally it would output at the sample rate of the file and just let the DAC deal with it.. should be lower power consumption too as the CPU wouldn't be dealing with resampling.
  5. I suspect that's because the bluetooth audio doesn't get output via the onboard DAC which is the point of the Hi Res output
  6. I've been running into issues with the resampling in Poweramp as well, I'm currently testing USB Audio Player and so far it does seem to be changing the output sample rate based on the input file and providing a much cleaner output. with Poweramp I was getting clicking sounds in the background unless I set the output sample rate to be the same or lower than the source file, this isn't ideal as some of my music is at a much higher sample rate than the rest and currently to use Poweramp I have to downsample all that music.
  7. A quick update to this, I've done a lot more testing and found that the issue seems to be resampling, if I set the high res output to use the same sample rate as the file I'm playing then everything sounds great however if I pick a higher sample rate than the playing file then I get the crackling sounds. Obviously I could just set the sample rate to a low value but that somewhat defeats the point of using a DAP that is capable to handling high sample rates, is Poweramp every likely to support selecting the output sample rate to match the source files, within the limits of what the device
  8. when listening to audio using the Hi-Res output on my Fiio M6 I have a faint popping/cracking noise in the background of all tracks, I've tried tweaking various settings from resampling, buffer sizes, disable the equaliser/tone control and enabling/disabling DVC. so far I've not managed to find a fix or work around. OpenSL ES output works fine but I'd prefer to use the Hi-Res output and utilise the onboard DAC (ES9018Q2C). For comparison the same audio tracks are fine when played through FIIO's default player, I'd rather use Poweramp though if possible due to the better UI, support for Al
  9. OK, thanks for the help. shame there isn't a way to trigger the category shuffling from within the library directly but I guess that would lead to a lot of different required behaviours based on the context when the shuffle button is pressed.
  10. I've just installed Poweramp v856 and have been trying to get my head around the shuffle options and how to make them do what I want, after a fair amount of forum searching and trying things I thought I'd just ask. how do I make Poweramp do the following: from the Album Artist catagory, select an artist and have PA play a random album (in track# order) then move on to another random album from the same album artist from the Albums catagory have PA play a random album in track# order then move on to another random album ideally without having to poke into settings each
  11. I'm using Poweramp on a fiio M6, no issues with the license, I just bought a website, single device, license (doesn't matter whether the email is Google or not) and entered the email and license key into Poweramp (with a network connection)
  12. I realise it's not something an end user can do, only the skin developer however it does mean it would be possible to develop your own skin for a fiio mp3 player if you wanted (not ideal but possible)
  13. Their reasoning for not providing the play store and whitelisting APKs is that they are concerned about app performance with the processor used, the device is an MP3 player, not a phone and has hardware designed for that purpose, they'd get a lot of complaints about apps not working if users had the freedom to install anything they wanted. it's annoying but I can understand their reasoning. for skins that leaves the only way to install them would be to change the package name (or whatever they whitelist by) to match a whitelisted app
  14. The reason for the skin not installing will be that fiio use a whitelist to limit app installations to tested, approved apps. Is there any other way to install Poweramp skins? Manually placing files or anything? Otherwise every skin would need it's APK registering on the white list, something I don't think fiio will do.
  15. Using Poweramp on my fiio M6 there is a delay of about 500ms between pressing the pause button (either UI button or hardware) and the music stopping (this is without any fading enabled), this delay isn't seen in any other apps, only Poweramp. Poweramp: V3 build-828-uni Using fiio firmware v1.0.2 Audio output settings on default (openSL ES) UPDATE: The issue persists using Poweramp-v3-build-845-uni.apk and High Res output or openSL ES
