About this app

Neutron is an advanced music player with audiophile-grade platform-independent 32/64-bit audio engine which is being developed for more than 10 years to provide Hi-Fi experience on any platform!

It outputs hi-res audio directly to the internal DAC (including USB DAC) and offers a rich set of DSP effects for altering audio. Neutron 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 unique PCM to DSD real-time oversampling mode (if supported by DAC), so you can play your favorite music in DSD resolution.

Neutron has special user interface with advanced functionality and is designed specifically for audiophiles and those who love music!

Shows lots of info, which I appreciate. Like the real-time bitrate of vbr files. Also, I think the UI is fine, and you can customize it a lot. I have no idea what people are expecting when they complain about the UI. It is intimidating at first because there are so many controls and options. I take screenshots of the original settings whenever I change things. Would be cool if we could sync or back up settings. Overall I am impressed with it.

After installing problems started. It would not recognize my main media folder (for my security, it claims) but would recognize files on my SD card. I continued with the evaluation, tho and within minutes, it told me that my trial had expired. It's supposed to be for 5 days. I cleared the cache (as recommended), that didn't work. I went to the user forum to get some assistance, but after seeing the number of people with this problem after they paid for it, I'm turned off. Uninstalling.

With great features and sound, should not fail at some basic fundamentals. Older versions won't allow keyboard to pop up - which makes searching for something impossible. Newer versions fixed this BUT (in newer versions) casting to network devices aborts when you select a device. Casting worked perfectly in older versions. These things should not be problematic. Especially when you've shown you can get it right. But, apparently not at the same time.
