John Titor Posted March 23, 2021 Share Posted March 23, 2021 (edited) Let's be honest here, upsampling a 44.1/48kHz track all the way to 192kHz doesn't improve the actual sound quality. Just unnecessary resampling, and in some cases, it decreases the quality (except for some very good resamplers, such as SoX). But still resources are spent on unnecessary resampling. But the reason we set Poweramp output sampling rate to higher than 48kHz so that Hi-res tracks with greater sample rate doesn't get downsampled to 48kHz. So it would be nice if there was an option to keep the same output sample rate frequency as the source file. And for files with sample rate less than 48kHz (i.e. 44.kHz CD quality files), it can upsample to 48kHz as Android's default sample rate is 48kHz. For example, there is a file with 96kHz sample rate, I am asking Poweramp to output it at 96kHz. And for a file with 44.1kHz it would resample to 48kHz as Android likes it that way. I mean minimum frequency could be 48kHz. Obviously I am asking to implement this for Hi-res output and AAudio output (if possible).
