    Is poweramp worth the 5$? Im currently running a rooted phone with 2.3 and one of the rooted music apps. The main thing i am trying to get is enhanced sound quality. Does poweramp give better sound quality? or does it just give you the ability to adjust the bass, treble, etc.

    Yes, Poweramp is definitely worth it in my opinion...

    For me, when using the equalizer, there is a noticeable sound quality difference over every other player, including Mixzing.

    Poweramp is not worth a dime, my rom(bugless beast) has DSPmanager built in. Before that I used poweramp and was disgusted with the service it runs in the background constant eating up system resource.

    folks please don't quote a post that violates the TOS here... it's no better than the original post itself.

    ... and yes PowerAmp is worth the $5.

    DSP manager does not offer the same level of control and ease of use IMO.

    Worth it? Yes. Though I like it over other players for its interface. I love how the cover art is the prominent aspect, allowing you to swipe left and right to change tracks (no need to look to hit the right button). I know others players do this too, but they're not as good as poweramp. I don't know about actually "enhancing" the sound quality, but the equalizer is great.

    And as others have said, just use the trial. Its lasts for 15 days, but doesn't actually lock you out for about a month.

    I am still on my trial but as soon as that runs out I will not hesitate to buy it. It really is that good. The sound quality is the best I have ever heard on any portable music player that I have ever used.

    I think $5 is a little inflated. Very very few apps cost that much, and as nice as Poweramp is it's not dramatically better than anything else.

    The EQ stuff is largely inconsequential unless you're just running straight headphones. I don't, so I just leave Poweramp at flat and use the EQ in my car. It's still nice though.

    You won't find a prettier player though. I have had some performance issues though, even setting the memory buffer to "Huge". Some mp3s still skip, which I think is ridiculous.

    I'm using the free version now, debating buying it. Recently the widget disappeared and isn't on my widgets list anymore. I'm not sure if that's a trial thing or not. Just thought it was strange.

    I'm leaning on buying it, but not really convinced yet. I'd say it's better than any other player hands down, just not sure if it's $5 better.

    I'd agree that $5 in comparison to other app prices is a bit much, but PowerAmp is definitely worthy of being a pay-for app.

    Music Player Pro is another worthy one.
    About $1 less.

    I could not decide between that one and PowerAMP so I just went with the free WinAMP. For now.

    Worth is always subjective, regardless of topic. I don't see the point in polling other people to determine your preference. Some will say yes. Some will say no. Try it and the alternatives out and decide for yourself.
