About this app

Neutron Player is an advanced music player with an audiophile-grade platform-independent in-house developed 32/64-bit audio engine which does not rely on the OS music player API and thus delivers truly unique experience to you.

* It is the only application capable of sending audio data to the network renderers (UPnP/DLNA, Chromecast) with all DSP effects applied, including the gapless playback.

* It features a unique PCM to DSD real-time oversampling mode (if supported by DAC), so you can play your favorite music in DSD resolution.

It was working well at first. Now it cannot play album tracks in the right order. The ID3 tags are correct. Other apps on my phone play the tracks in the right order. Update: I emailed the developer and explain the problems that were occurring. He responded within a couple hours and help me fix the issues. I highly recommended this app!

Well I've been using this app for Android since 2016. And long live Neutron media player. No matter what device I purchase or whichever smart phone I am using, neutron music player has helped me listen to whatever I want, boost the preamp so I can concentrate, and read different directories on an SD card depending what I am in the mood for. Thanks Neutron media, now I can see the light!

Used to be perfect. This app is no longer functional due to a Google update which made it unable to read my music that I've had on this device for years with this player. This is starting to seem a lot like the reason I don't use iOS anymore. It's my music and I control it not Google. I am extremely disgusted as this was the best music player I ever found, but I'm not a programmer and I'm not going to jump through all the hoops suggested on how to fix this.

It can easily be fixed by installing manually the Generic apk which is not limited by Android 11+, or you need to allow Neutron to access your storage via SAF. Everything is described in FAQ:

What's new

* Support for full hi-res audio on HiBy RS8 DAP (up to PCM 1536 kHz, DSD1024)
! Fixed:
- could not send DSD from one Neutron Player to another (UPnP/DLNA Renderer) if WAV transport not selected
- crash on DSD1024 to PCM conversion if target sample rate was not multiple of 44100
- short interruptions when switching apps on some rare firmwares when Direct USB Access is active (not fully though, firmware issue)
- unable to start on Android 4.3 or less (regression since 2.19.x)
