    Android: Neutron Music Player

    Thanks for this. Rewind Track % isn't actually that self explanatory to be fair. It could just as easily mean how far back it actually rewinds.....

    High power portable dac/amp with balanced output to drive custom Dt 1770 pro's

    So this is basically a request for suggestions on a portable amp/dac combo that will give me a bit more juice through my Beyers. Im currently using a Fiio Q5, which i think is fantastic, and a real steal for the money. But i can't help but feel that the 1770's would benefit from a bit more...

    2.5mm balanced jack

    For IEM'S, there's lots of places you can get inexpensive, good quality 2.5mm terminated cables. Try Aliexpress, Amazon, Penon Audio, Linsoul, to name but a few. As for your Sundaras, you'll probably need something custom made. Try Oidio Sound or Custom Cans. They've both been fabulous with me...

    @jfunk is the one to answer this. Why don't you email them and ask?

    FiiO Q1MKII- Native DSD Support, XMOS USB DAC chip, DAC AK4452, 20 hours

    They definitely do very good cables for Android use. However, i haven't seen a lightning variant, but then again, i haven't looked. But Penon Audio definitely do a good range of usb cables

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Exactly. Found these 2 work very well with a portable set-up, are good quality and are nice and compact:

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    +1 for Onkyo HF. Very slick and nice interface and as competent as the others we have mentioned. If i didn't EQ, It would probably be a toss up between this and UAPP. But it does have a very quirky and not very intuitive eq, so it loses half a star for me. For me the fact that you can't look...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Ha-Ha, i apologise. It was late last night... Lol. But you're right. If we're talking phones only, then im sure the LG V series have very good built-in dacs, but using apps like UAPP, Neutron, etc with external dac/amps, the whole point is for the software to bypass any possible OS limitations...

    2.5mm balanced jack

    Of course, you're right, my mistake. It was late when i replied!! . If im not mistaken, isn't it the same 3 pin mini xlr as my 1770's would of had as standard? In which case, you're right, you'd need them converted to something like a 4-pin mini xlr, and then look at a company like Oidio Sound...

    Customer service done right!

    Just wanna say how impressed i am with Custom Cans customer service. I contacted them about my cable, as being the clutz i can be, i managed to knock my player onto the carpet, and in turn, broke the 2.5mm termination. So i asked if i could return it for repair. They replied promptly, said that...

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    What is the amp you have attached to the FiiO? Really nice set up btw. Looking at some Fostex for a possible future purchase.

    Best Smartphone for audiophile Part II (Updated: Jan 2020)

    Ok, so for no reason other than to help myself decide, I've spent a couple of hours A>B'ing between Neutron and UAPP. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased to discover that UAPP now has a better 10 band PEQ. So i took some tracks that i know intimately, copied my own favourite Neutron EQ preset...
