I've been using this app for a few years now - I have tried out other music players on the way - and always regarded it as the best by far. The sheer quality is superb. I recently invested in high (ish) end speakers for my home hi fi which would expose poor quality players. Neutron playing hi res flac files sounds amazing.
Was my go to app for music playback for a long time however I had to deduct a star because it is the most likely app to hijack my Bluetooth playback. Even if I have another audio app open Neutron opens itself up and starts playing, very annoying. Music quality, however, is stellar as always. Please fix the Bluetooth bug and it's back to 5 stars.
This player has made great strides on in the past few months, but on my FiiO X5 III the DSD native option produce a white noise. I don't know what it's due to, I presume for the drivers problem. If you solve this defect, 5 stars! The player for me is the best for Android DAPs in the store.
The UX comes straight from the depths of hell. Absolutely nothing is intuitive about this app. But when you look to bypass garbage stock audio drivers, disable upsampling, or even output Bit-Perfect DSD256 files to external dac amp - Neutron is the only one to choose. An engineering achievement no less.
Turns it's self on every time I walk past a Bluetooth device. EVERY FREAKIN TIME! I have my own business. I use square. Every time I swipe a credit card, it turns it's self on! EVERY FREAKIN TIME! So I googled the problem. Settings > Bluetooth> something something Imagine if I'm driving and want to hear some tunes. Can't just hit a button.... OFF or ON!
The bad: Horrible interface. Too many settings for nothing. Could be more user friendly. Songs interruptions. Songs duplicates in playlists. Does not find artwork and sometimes finds the lyrics. The good: Easy network connections and Chromecast. Sound is good. Conclusion: Not worth the money they charge. Developpers don't seem to care, there are no reply on users comments.
