Parameters on Fiio M11

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I just installed Poweramp on my new M11 and it's fantastic. I love the way I can customize everything. Beautiful.
I'm currently running the trial version I downloaded from APKPure, so maybe I don't have access to all functionnalities. I have a few questions for those who use it with the M11 :

- I have mp3, flacs and High-res files. What parameter do I have to chose to listen to all of that ? Is there a function I have to activate each time I want to listen to High-res?
- I see that my 44.1kHz flacs are sampled to 48 kHz when I play them, is this normal ?

Thank you. Sorry for my bad English.

The trial version is not feature limited, it is purely a time limit. You can also download the current APKs from the website here by the way, from the Downloads tab above.

MP3s and FLACs should all be scanned fine into Poweramp's library, and played seamlessly, you won't see which is which unless you actively show that sort of metadata. You can select high-res output modes in Settings > Audio > Output, so I would suggest using a value to match the highest quality of files that you have on your device, and allow everything else to be upsampled. Output sample rates cannot be adjusted 'on-the-fly' to match the source rates of individual files.

Some Android devices (not sure about the M11) do not actually support 44.1 output at all, and play everything at 48kHz by default.

Thank you Andre. The thing is, at the moment I only have a few high-res files, the vast majority of my library beeing CD quality flacs and mp3. If everything is resampled in 24bits/192kHz, will it drain my battery ? Is this process using a lot of RAM ? Doesn't it alter a bit the sound quality of my CD quality files that are supposed to be played in their native frequency ? Thanks for your advice.

CD quality files will be 44.1kHz , but many devices actually output at 48kHz (DVD spec) anyway, so the issue of re-sampling kinda becomes moot.

High res output does use perhaps a fraction more battery, but nothing you'd really notice.

PA has no method to adjust to new file specs on the fly though - as that would potentially introduce noise at the switch point, and break some features like gapless playback and crossfading - so you really need to decide on your preferred mode and leave it set like that. Give it a try and see if you have hear any difference anyway; using high-res (especially 24/32 bit sampling) can apparently improve headroom for EQ and effects processing.

Hi Andre, thanx for the help. My trial version expired and I'd like to purchase the website version because there is no Google Store on the M11.

How can I purchase it without reinstalling everything ? I have all my settings perfectly set and I wish I could avoid setting everything again. Is this possible ?

Thank you.

You can simply purchase from the website, and install the latest APK files from the Downloads tab here. No need to uninstall the trial version, the licence simply unlocks it permanently.

When you receive the confirmation email, in Poweramp Settings use 'Already Purchased?' > 'Website', and type in the same Google or other email account that you registered with, and the Order ID.

You will need an internet connection on the device for it to initially validate the email address though, but Google Play and gapps are not required any more.

Andre
