  1. build-911-arm64-play (911004-cb218340). Samsung Galaxy S20 (SM-G981B), Android 11 I'm having a frustrating issue. I've used Poweramp for years but this only recently started happening. While listening, it randomly changes the EQ preset. I have 4 assigned presets; one for Phone Speaker, and 3 for various Bluetooth devices. But it's stopped choosing the correct preset, and seems to jump between them randomly, often in the middle of songs. It's really jarring, and if I change it back, it will still switch again. The presets all have the assigned device name under them, This happens with no devices paired (using phone speaker), or with 1 Bluetooth device paired. I never connect multiple at once.
  2. So, I'm an audio enthusiast/musician with a few different headphones, DACs and amps. Poweramp is my main music app. But I've always been conflicted with DVC; whether I want to enable or disable it. It seems to have VERY different effects, based on my amps or headphones. For example, my 1000Xm3's sound more bassy and bloated with DVC on. I have to EQ the bass much lower. However, with a full headphone amp and DT 1990's, it sounds very 'shallow' and bright with DVC on. There's no body or bass, but detailed treble. With DVC off, it sounds fuller/more punchy, but also quite muddy. It's a drastic difference. With an underpowered amp/dac, it sounds best with DVC on. It's full and warm, with good treble. Now, there shouldn't be such a big difference. Through my PC with WinAmp, both these amps sound identical (as they should). I'm just so confused. DVC has the opposite effect with different headphones. Is it something about controlling the DAC directly?
