New to Poweramp : problem with Hi-Res on Galaxy S10 +

Would have wanted Poweramp to have a "Follow Frequency" feature just like that in Neutron and Bit Perfect "When Possible" playback in UAPP. Won't need the resampler if Poweramp selects the appropriate sampling freq based on the audio being played.

Max has responded to this request a few times saying that automatically switching output frequency/bitrate would cause nasty audio glitches, and would also break crossfade, gapless, and other features, which he didn't want to do. I assume there would also need to be some clever logic as a lot of devices are only able to switch to specific frequency/bitrate combos, which might mean some files could not be matched (even 44.1 is not supported on many devices, where the hardware output has a minimum of 48kHz regardless). 

Personally though, I can't see it being a big issue with gapless as both tracks would be encoded at the same spec, and in fact most continuous play modes would probably be OK as adjacent tracks in albums or folders would tend to use similar encoding systems. Random play would the the worst affected I guess, but such a feature would be optional anyway so it could come with a warning that noise is to be expected when you switch between tracks encoded at different frequencies/etc and that crossfade will be disabled when you activate auto-switching.
