Neutron vs Poweramp - Page 2

Listen some more.

I like PlayerPro.

AS I said, I have been using Neutron since I got my new HTC M8, also on previous Android devices, felt it was the better sounding (had also bought PowerAmp, uninstalled). My HTC came with a trial PlayerPro, tried it. My sense is that the Poweramp sounded best, next Neutron, next PlayerPro (strictly SQ-have uninstalled Neutron in the past for its UI, which was a headache). Not extensive listening, will try to get to compare some more

PlayerPro has been good to me.

i tried various players on my moto hd maxx.  played the same 30 sec snips over and over on different players.  got confused at some points which player i was even listening with, which was a good thing because it eliminated the effect of any preconceptions. neutron was noticeably better than all others.  note i was listening to 320mbs mp3's only, acoustic jazz and classical only, no flacs or other lossless.

I'm back in the Neutron camp as well, use it exclusively on my Samsung YP whatever (their 5 inch version of iPod Touch), sounds much better than stock, better than other players noted above.

I spent some hours comparing Poweramp and Neutron. Don't hear any difference.

Could be,no need to bother with it then, I hear a big difference, Neutron sounds much better imo.

Yup, me too. Still, everyone's ears are different.

Anyone tried both (Neutron & PowerAmp) output to USB DAC (particularly Samsung S3)?

I've tried all the Android players with my E18 and Neutron (flat) is far superior. Neutron also has, by a long way, the best EQ of all - if you know how to use it.

I've just finished testing both Poweramp and Neutron on various hires source files and on my HTC One M8 I've come down on the side of Poweramp - much to my surprise.

My old ipod gen. 5 that I've been using as a player into the Aux input in my car,  and occasionally with $100 Etymotic ear phones on planes or at home, just died.   

I thought about replacing it with an affordable player ($100-200 range).  But many say these players aren't much better sounding than iPod.  This made me consider using my Samsung Note2 as my player , and installing Neutron or Poweramp.      

Question:  normally I just sync my iPod with my Mac iTunes.   What is the most convenient way to sync the Note 2 (with Neutron or Poweramp) to my iMac ?     I have itunes,  but also a separate folder with FLAC and AIFF files, some hi-res.

You could download & install Android File Transfer and just drag 'n' drop. That's what I do but then I don't use iTunes as its a terrible straight jacket.

I tried Android File Transfer on my iMac (Yosemite) to copy music to my Note 2.  I can only get it make the connection intermittantly.  Both Neutron and Poweramp (trial versions) automatically scanned and put any/all audio into their libraries - including ringtones and audio clips from Google Navigation (!)  - seems very weird.  I'll work on it some more, but this kind of thing drives me crazy. .
