High quality media player supporting USB audio DACs and HiRes audio chips found in the latest phones. Play up to any resolution and sample rate that the DAC supports! All popular and less popular formats are supported (beyond the formats that Android supports), including wav, flac, mp3, m4a, wavpack, SACD ISO, MQA and DSD.
This app is a must-have for every audiophile, bypassing all audio limits of Android. Whether you use our custom developed USB audio driver for USB DACs, our HiRes driver for internal audio chips or the standard Android driver, this app is one of the highest quality media players around.
Since version 5, the app now includes a MQA Core Decoder (in-app purchase required). MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download, while also being backward compatible. The Tidal streaming service supported by USB Audio Player PRO features many tracks in MQA and offers a great opportunity to experience MQA.
The MQA decoder will unfold the MQA stream from 44.1/48kHz to 88.2/96 kHz and can also be combined with USB DACs that feature a MQA renderer (e.g. AudioQuest DragonFly / iFi / Ztella) for further unfolding to even higher sample rates. Please visit http://mqa.co.uk for more information about MQA and https://www.extreamsd.com/index.php/mqa to read more about MQA inside the app.
Features: • Plays wav/flac/ogg/mp3/MQA/DSD/SACD ISO/aiff/aac/m4a/ape/cue/wv/etc. files (even 24-bit and 32-bit). • Supports a USB audio DAC connected by an OTG cable • Plays natively up to 32-bit/768kHz or any other rate/resolution your USB DAC supports by completely bypassing the Android audio system. Other Android players are limited to 16-bit/48kHz. • Utilizes HiRes audio chips found on many phones (LG V series, Samsung, OnePlus, Sony, Nokia, etc.) to play HiRes audio at 24-bit without resampling! Bypasses the Android resampling limits! • Free MQA decoding and rendering on the LG V30/V35/V40/V50/G7/G8 (not G8X) • DoP, native DSD and DSD-to-PCM conversion • Toneboosters MorphIt Mobile: improve the quality of your headphones and simulate over 700 headphone models (in-app purchase required) • Build a Library containing tracks with audio formats that would be unavailable from the Android media database • Folder playback • UPnP/DLNA • UPnP media renderer and content server • Network playback (SambaV1/V2, FTP, WebDAV) • Stream audio from Tidal (including Tidal Masters/MQA), Qobuz and Shoutcast • Gapless playback • Bit perfect playback • Replay gain • Synchronized lyrics display • Sample rate conversion (if your DAC doesn't support the audio file's sample rate, it will be converted to a higher sample rate if available or the highest if not available) • 10-band equalizer • Software and hardware volume control (when applicable) • Upsampling (optional) • Last.fm scrobbling • Android Auto • No root required!

This app is completely worth it just for the ability to use an external DAC. However, some issues such as the clunky interface (imo), no "last played" section under the Tidal tab, and no way to see if an album is an explicit version or clean version at all (once again, at least when using this app to access Tidal) hold it back quite a bit. Not sure if most of these issues are the fault of the app itself or just a limitation of the Tidal integration. Either way, I'm glad this app exists at all.

My Dragonfly Cobalt was making strange sounds before, but the drivers in this app fixed it. I think it is worth it for the drivers alone. The user interface is pretty basic, but works well. My biggest issue I have is the lack of multi-artist support. Rather than attribute a track to each artist in the tag, the combined tag counts as a single artist in my library. This is an important feature to me, so I will stick to other apps when not using a DAC.

I'm mostly happy with the app. Only problem is you can't have single or double quotes in song titles. It causes the artist's name to be be repeated x number of times, x being the number of tracks an open quote is from a given song. This problem persists even when the quotes are closed. This only a general observation. I'm just reviewing in hopes the devs fix what is probably an easy bug. Will rate 5 stars once fixed. 8/2022 edit Still see artist's names multiple times. Plz fix.

* Added HiRes support for the TempoTec V6 (PCM, DSD, MQA), Nokia G400, Zenfone 9, Xiaomi 12T Pro, Redmi Note 11, XPeria 1 IV and 1 III and Z Flip 4. * Added an option to the USB audio tweaks 'DAC warm-up time' to introduce a short delay for USB DACs that skip a short amount of audio on start of playback. * When selecting multiple tracks in the queue for deletion, the wrong tracks could be removed. Solved. * When switching languages, the Library tabs could disappear. Solved. and more..
