Hi everyone, long term Poweramp user here. I'm currently owning a LG V30 (Stock Pie) which is supposed to have a great quality audio output thanks to it's DAC, but I have a low hissing noise occuring during playback through the headphone jack. I suspected for a long time a hardware issue : all apps are subject to it (using default Android drivers or not), as well as all the headphones I tested, all files quality are subject to it (tested from crappy 128kbps MP3 to vinyl ripped in 96kHz/24bit FLAC), no "force hi res" mod works and nobody is complaining about a similar issue on the V30 threads and forums. Activating my internal Quad DAC (or DTS/Dolby/system equalizer/...) seem to increase the noise, but I'm not sure it's anything other than placebo at this point. However, Poweramp HiRes output option literally nukes this noise. I assume there's nothing gain related, as I always compare at equivalent volume. A very (very) low noise can be heard but it's for very high volume level. When I activate DVC or chose any other output option, the noise is back. And the Quad DAC doesn't generate noise at all ! I can't use any external effects without having the noise back. My question is : How does Poweramp HiRes driver works ? From my point of view, this situation is a complete nonsense, but I probably lack a lot of knowledge and would be glad to understand more about it. Finally, is there way to mod my device so I can replicate the work of Poweramp HiRes driver ? I have root and I'm not fearing bootloops, and I really want to understand more about Android audio (and also enjoy good audio at low volume for every sources).
I am using OnePlus 6 with Android Pie and Poweramp@v3-build-803-play. I have been facing issues with the audio output on this specific android version. Note that these issues are not specific to the latest version of Poweramp and have been there for all the beta and RC ones which came before it(maybe the last 5). Hi-Res Output which used to work fine on android 8.1 stopped working after the OS update. If I have Hi-Res Output enabled, there is no audio output in my wired earphones. If I disable 'Direct Volume Control', I get audio output but I am not sure how this affects audio quality so I am not using it. With OpenSL ES Output, there is a peculiar noise, a continuous ticker, which is only audible during relatively quiet parts of any song, similar to signal interference. And I have a work around which I have to do every time I (re)connect my earphones. I have to open the audio output settings under 'Settings > Audio > Output > OpenSL ES Output> Wired Headset/AUX settings' and then toggle 'No DVC' twice so in the final state is DVC still enabled. Update: Issue is still present with v3-build-805-play
Hello Poweramp community, I just wanted to report a bug that occurs a few times per week, while Poweramp is used everyday for hours. I have a Galaxy S6, it supports the Hi-Res Output, so I don't have to use the OpenSL EL Output, which is indeed worse than the Hi-Res Output. The bug is that sometimes when my headphones are plugged in, the music still is being played out of the speakers of the phone though the device treats the music/volume as if the headphones are plugged in as usual (tested with 4 different ones). The only way to remove the problem temporarily (it lasts a few days) is to reset the options from the Hi-Res Output, from the menu of the output plugins, and from the output settings in general. After that I wipe the app's cache and force close it, and restart my phone. It did never plays the music through my headphones without restarting the phone, or the other previous steps. I have no clue why this bug occurs, but it is annoying (public transportation). The Hi-Res Output is so much better than the other ones so it would be nice if it works all the time correct not just most of the time.
