Frankyboy5 Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 Recently I got a Maceton WM4BE Bluetooth receiver which supports AptX. On my Sony Xperia Z5 with Poweramp (version 2.0.10 build 588) the sound quality is very good but with other apps (Sony music player, Spotify, YouTube) it sounds too loud and crackles quite a bit. I've checked my Sony audio settings and even changed to safe mode, but apps other than Poweramp still sound bad... So I'm wondering exactly what Poweramp does differently to Bluetooth audio compared to other apps? Has anyone had similar experience with the Xperia Z5? Turning Bluetooth DVC on increases the volume in Poweramp, but it doesn't add any more distortion. I don't have any other Bluetooth devices to test, but I did try the receiver on my older phone (HTC Butterfly s) which also supports AptX. There is sometimes crackling when I switch tracks (which might be a problem on HTC since I recall the same thing happening with wired devices) but the sound quality is otherwise fine.
