Have been a user of this player for years. It's user interface has always been terrible, but its sound good. Unfortunately upgraded my phone to android 13, now no files are playable. The (terrible) user interface scans all my music on the SD card, but processes none - if there is an error with the app it never reports one. Been through the forums but to no avail...

The hot fix worked. This truly is an amazing app with many great features, responsive devs, tons of customization, it's kind of like the equivalent of those people who won't shut up about how good vinyl sound vs digital, (but Neutron in a much better/non-annoying way.) The only feature I wish was different was that the limiter was independent of the compressor to allow for a little more control. Even so, with this app you will want for very little and none other compare.

2.23.7 NMP update caused massive license check failure on Android devices (not all though). Google Play just released 2.23.9 update with a hot-fix, please check if update is rolled out for your device. If not, you can download and install 2.23.9 manually from Neutron's web site:

Update: Dev said the hardware ad only appears once, I said I'd raise the score if that was the case. Otherwise this is the only DLNA music streaming I use. On Xbox it's the only app I've found that doesn't pause between song or worse try to launch the audio app when running in the background especially during games to play the next song, just continuous play. UI is a bit dated and hard to get use to, but I still think despite that it's a great audio player.

It is notification from the developer about new hardware developed also by the developer and it is related to Neutron Player as it is often used with USB DACs. In the next update Help - Neutron HiFi option will get pin-button to turn off such information, if not interested. Notification is shown once.

What's new

* New:
- Audio Hardware - Oversampling - Frequency Limit option: to limit oversampling to some max frequency
- EQ channel label in Controls screen toggles between EQ channels
- entering Clock mode will no longer stop music playback
- support for Software Gain by Wake-Up Timer
* Improved AGP - Reset Gain behavior
* Speaker DSP: expanded Delay setting to 20 ms
! Fixed:
- Speaker DSP: 2.1 mode giving noise
