Question about the Decoder

Recommended Posts

Hello, Am new to the use of Poweramp and audio enthusiasm...

Just recently ditched my phone's stock music player for Poweramp V3 and am really happy with it... i'd like to ask if the decoder is meant to decode at 16 bit or 24 bit? and if there is a way to switch to a 24 bit decoder? because playing the exact same music file over Roon shows that its capable of decoding the music over 24-bit? or am i reading something wrong? thanks! 

Phone: Huawei Mate 20 Pro

In Settings > Audio > Output, select the High-Res option and enable it for your chosen output device (e.g. Wired Headset/AUX). Then you can choose bitrate and frequencies (some devices only work with lock combinations, some you can change each value separately).

I've already set the options and in capable devices such as my B&W headsets its showing output at 24-bit 48kHz   but the decoder section is still at 16-bit? image.thumb.png.b6959c79011e3d980d40c66bef9c6a33.png

The decoder will (I assumed) decode the originally compressed 16-bit MP3 source material to uncompressed 16-bit audio, then you can select if that should then be upscaled to 24-bit etc. I would have thought the results would be the same either way. But @maxmp could confirm that.
