Running Viper currently which does much the same thing. I may give Voodoo a try though

Now there is USB Audio Player PRO https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.extreamsd.usbaudioplayerpro

 

Supports up to 32-bit/384kHz via USB OTG to an external DAC by bypassing Android audio drivers.

 

No other player can do that yet (apart from USB Audio Recorder Pro from the same developers)...

I'm yust trying USB AUDIO PLAYER PRO free version and sound very good.
I've been using neutron player for more than a year.
I would like to know more opinion.
Thanks.

My opinion is that I wish the Nexus 4 had USB OTG without external power so that I could actually have an excuse to buy a Fiio E17  :mad:

USB Audio Player PRO is the best sound quality music player to my ears on my setup (Samsung Galaxy Note 3 > Objective DAC > SoundLab Neco V3 amp > MrSpeakers Mad Dog headphones) for the time being.

 

 

 

 

 

Native USB audio & eXtream USB audio (USB Audio Player PRO, USB Audio Recorder PRO):

 

 

 

 

I am wondering if the great sound quality of USB Audio Player PRO is due to the "direct interface" architecture like the audiophile Audirvana music player for Mac OS X.

"I have a note 3 and a galaxy s3.
Both perform extremly well with my two dac, an asus muses and a chinese custom board with xmos usb.
In my home I have also 2 pc, a portable sony and a nuc intel with dedicated linear power supply, but the quality is not the same as my android source + UAPP PLAYER.
I use for my nuc jriver or Pupmpd,
I like the sound of Pupmpd, but the android source are more enjoable and have the best sound.
Anyone have similar experience?
Why android sound so gooood?"

"The sound is just beautiful.
I never thought there is that more in my ie80, hd650 stunning as well. Sometimes I almost feel I have a multi speaker system on (or in) my ears. The instrument separation, depht got the biggest upgrade. Really precise, if I can say steril.
still not over the moon but there is smile on my face"

"Using my microstreamer and s4 has much better sq than microstreamer and laptop combo.
I'm using foobar and wasapi plug-in.
However in my ears using dac in android has more refined sound than using laptop and win7."

My thoughts exactly. I have Nexus 7 '13, and as far as I know only CyanogenMod supports USB Audio withou USB Audio Player PRO. Fiio E17 drains battery pretty fast despite I have USB charging turned off on it and the fact that it has battery anyway,

I wish someone implemented the driver from USB AP PRO in a custom kernel.


Let me guess, USB AP PRO doesn't have crossfade?

Hi I'm about to purchase an app on the play store but don't know how what to get.. Is it the USB player pro much better than poweramp? Currently using free trial of the poweramp + noozoxide.. Note 2 user here..
post #249 of 531

If you can root your Note 2 with Odin tool and CF-Auto-Root, install VIPER4Android, personally I use PowerAmp with this great audio framework.

It took me a few days to find the best signature for my IEM, possibility are numerous !

 

The sound is really good on a rooted stock 4.3 EU GTN7100 (eXynos + Wolfson), the effort is worth it, I use the Super Audio Quality driver.

post #250 of 531
For people using poweramp...im sorry to say but the quality is very poor on it compared to others like neutron, n7,playerpro and shuttle+. All these other players provide unique and clean ui while outperforming poweramp in playback quality. Most notable diff. between poweramp and others is that poweramp somewhat numbs the treble and fuzzies the bass. Once i tried n7 and shuttle+, lets just say im never going back smily_headphones1.gif

Ditto DanBa, on both UAPP's sound quality and it's possible similarity/kinship to Audirvana Pro. I've been wondering if that could be the case since I've started using it.

 

To my ears, USB Audio Player Pro is simply the best sounding player out there right now. I've been listening to the app on my Galaxy Note II's onboard WM1811 (Perseus Kernel with Headphone Amp Control) and via OTG through my Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII. It's not *much* better than Neutron to my ears, but it pulls ahead. 

 

Now, I can stop complaining about Neutron's UI and start hoping for UI improvements to UAPP. A better widget, please ;_;

Well, I heard back from Dimitry, Neutron's developer.  I can't say that I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed.  However such functionality is on his TODO list.

 

     Hi Steve,

    

     ALSA is not possible on Android unfortunately as Android normally has only 1 active-stream and thus it must be

     closed before Neutron could open it. Moreover, (the) app must be running under System permission.  Switching off

     Generic Driver means to switch on driver based on OpenSL ES - less context switches.  As to USBm Neutron needs

     driver implementation for generic USB audio classes B and C if I am not mistaken which will allow >16 bits and >44.1 kHz.

     This is in to-do but without possible implementation deadline yet.

    

     Best regards,


     Dmitry.

 

Another thing I have to keep in mind is that in double-blind testing, these 57-year old-ears most likely couldn't discern differences in audio quality with higher sampling-rates/bitrates.  I guess I'm just keeping the dream alive that I still have "golden ears", and love to keep purveyors of high-density digital audio in business.

 

Steve 

 

PS - I downloaded "USB Audio Player PRO" Trial, and dayum if it doesn't do exactly what Dimitry's doesn't.  Just played cuts from Chesky's Binaural "Explorations in Space and Time" at full-boat 176KHz/24Bit saved as FLAC on my Note 2, to Leckerton amp.  Interesting.

Anybody having issues playing aiff files? My flacs work great, but aiffs are not even showing up in the player.
post #254 of 531

I am using USB player pro with HiFi-M8. On the Note 3 it works without a hitch and sounds great. However on my old S3 it does not work. It keeps crashing. 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

USBAPP is indeed much more user friendly than ARP, but still... lack some advanced UI graphical (with cover arts), and dynamic Playlists

 

 

Look at Calyx M DAP UI:

 

* 

 

In Calyx's playlist system, on the DAP, you can:

 

1 - Manage of dynamic playlists,  decide "play next", "play last"... 

2 - Change order of the songs inside a playlist by just dragging/sliding a song within the list (of the playlist). 

 

LOOK AT THIS DEMO OF CALYX UI !  Brillant !!
