Yes, I use Neutron.  Unfortunately, the phone's (Droid Maxx) dac/amp isn't up to par with a good quality setup.  I was able to pair it with a vamp verza > shadow once, and it was a significant improvement.

I've gone through ipod classic, iphones, Fiio E17, C5D, Cowon D2.  I prefer the Neuton on my S4, ODAC/O2 on m desktop, or the clip+.

If you are looking for an all in one DAC/amp that can drive anything short of a HE-6 and your budget allows for it look at the RSA Intruder. When I spoke with Ray Samuels he loved the combination of an Android and Intruder paired together.

An android based DAP with a line out to a USB input.

What (DAC/)Amp do you recommend using together with a Android Phone like the LG G2? I thought of the pico slim but its got a hefty price tag, and I'm not sure if I could use it with over ears also. 

Right now I'm using the FiiO E18 since its the only one I have with <1ohm output impedance, but I feel like its lackin in SQ and microdetails

Hey folks, I just tried neutron player on note 3 and it blew me away after much tweaking. This is what I did ..

High band to 0.88
Dsp effect - surround sound to get a wider stereo instead if cross feed.
64bit processing on
Dither on ( it say improve audio quality by randomizing the quantization error.
Resample to audiophile (higher CPU load. Best precision of audio interpolation)
Audio hardware - hardware gain on, audio focus on,

Initial testing indicate that the note 3 sound way better than before and it sound like adding an amp. I need more testing with some other portable amps to confirm this findings. I am loving it for now, this is really good stuff, but I notice the battery is draining faster.. The bass, clarity and dynamic is way better, pretty good attack on notes.. I need to test more.

:p Good thing you tried it Audio, I keep mentioning it over and over again on every thread.  By the way, if your processor is not capable of 64-bit it will only do 32.  Maybe the new apple processor can do 64.  Other than that, there is nothing like it even on desktop software, the software developer is a genius.  I wish the USB Audio Player pro interface was like Neutron with the options.

 

It would great on my Samsung also, it's an S4.  I guess it's friendly with Snapdragon systems.

 

With the Neutron, it's like I don't need an external device to provide better quality.  It's money well spent, much cheaper than an external device for my phone.

I think the LG G2 has the same SoC Snapdragon 800 as my Note 3. I don't know about the G2's amp section, but I improved the SQ by rooting my Note 3 to install Viper4Android (V4A). It is highly customizable. V4A with Poweramp really shows what Shure's "true subwoofer" marketing is all about. Or, create the sound you want. With V4A, I took an old Galaxy Player 5.0 and made it sound very close to the HiFiMAN HM-802 (so much so,  that I quickly packed the 802 up and returned it).

Yes it does have the Snapdragon 800 and LG even did stock compatibility for 24bit files, but I had to root and flash a custom ROM of course :)

I never really tried V4A, I installed it once (an app, not a mod from XDA, there are a lot of chinese apps when searching for viper 4 android in the playstore, not sure which one I need) and it seemed like these DSP functions I dont like to use. What is the difference?

I also have neutron player and power amp, what do you mean with the subwoofer marketing? Why does Poweramp sound woofier then other players?

 

Thanks

Poweramp now plays 24 bit files.

 

I got the XDA linked version of V4A (not the one from the Play Store).

 

The difference between this "DSP" is noticeable from the start when you click Enable at the top where it says Master Power (under headset). You can use the EQ functions and other functions if you want. You don't have too. The main thing is to first install Busy Box from the Play Store. Open Busy Box and click install. Then download and install the latest V4A from the XDA link. When the program ask you to install the driver, click OK, and select Super Audio. That's the main thing (replacing the audio driver).

 

What I do for subwoofer sound is turn the Tone on in Poweramp (about half way). Then I set Enable ViPER Bass and Select Bass Boost to 8db. I have other settings enabled as well, but that is just for the bass function.

 

Edit to add: Oh, and I always set the phone volume to maximum and use the Shure attenuator to control the volume. That gets rid of that crud as songs tapper off.

Didn't know about this. Is this only for G2?  Does your device have to be rooted for it to work? Also is this running on the background once you set it?
