Great app except..............PLEASE HELP! Hello...........I just got the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I tried out the Neutron player app on it. While playing music through my USB port and connected to my Oppo HA-2 portable amp/DAC (and that to headphones), I was in Neutron's settings, and turned on then off then on the Direct USB Driver option under Audio Hardware. Maybe doing that while music was playing was bad, because the phone then froze, and then restarted itself. Since then, when I connect my HA-2 to the phone (via USB), the phone no longer plays music through it. Instead, it only plays using the phone's speaker. I've tried everything that I can think of, including clearing the cache/data for the USB Settings app in App Manager & resetting phone, but NOTHING works!! I just got this phone and don't want to have to factory reset it, but I don't know what else to do. I tried a different cable too and that didn't fix it, so it's definitely a phone issue (I'm thinking/hoping software, not hardware). If anyone has ANY idea how to fix this that wasn't already mentioned here in this post, PLEASE reply with your suggestions. Thanks!

Great sounding player!

I absolutely love this player. It is not a simple, streamlined app, but for those who have high resolution files (I use flac's) and know how to use a parametric EQ, it is awesome! If you want a flashy, pretty app to play crappy low-Res mp3s, this is not it. Well worth the money!

Love it

Replaced Tune-in and Power Amp. I was buying the story that you can't improve the sound due to the limitations of Bluetooth and the chosen codec. Conceptually that is true... Bluetooth and lower bitrate will not sound as good as wired perfect recordings. The thing is that this application gives the best sound your music can generate. I'd suspect most will do the same thing ... Migrate to the best recording you can and maximize your sound. It is remarkable.


Crashes when editing playlists

The app is excellent but one major flaw is that it crashes everytime I try to edit the playlist by placing a track in first or 2nd position of the playlist. Fix this please to get a 5 star rating. Galaxy S6.

Jeffrey Hyun

Game changer!

Can't tell you how much I love this app! The sound that this puts out via usb or even headphone jack trumps all others. UI/UX was a little lacking at first, but slowly getting better with each new rev. Let's be honest though... If you're using this, it's cause you're chasing SQ :)

Nothing better

Absolutely the best music player available. Nothing has near the features or settings.

Jimes Tooper

Easily the best player I've used

Better than Poweramp. I was using Poweramp for the last 3 years until recently when I got a phone with a proper DAC (LG V10). I've found that Poweramp rolls the trebles to the point that the timbres of some instruments is way off. Neutron is accurate without being fatiguing unlike the stock LG player. Could be prettier visually but oh well.


OK.....I GOT A WINDOWS 8.1 phone and i would love to keep this app can we get it for Windows to PLEASE!.

I love this app well never forgot it!!!

The sound quality from this music player is outstanding, the best I've heard. Very good music app.

Charles Jergl

Really good

Hands down the best quality audio. If you like knobs and sliders this is for you.

Thomas Fodor

Simply the best

No better player around. If songs could be rated from the notifications, it would be absolutely flawless

Shawn Crary

Would be five stars if cast feature was added.
