Neutron is an advanced music player with audiophile-grade platform-independent 32/64-bit audio engine which is being developed for more than 10 years to provide Hi-Fi experience on any platform! It outputs hi-res audio directly to the internal DAC (including USB DAC) and offers a rich set of DSP effects for altering audio. Neutron is the only application capable of sending audio data to the network renderers (UPnP/DLNA, Chromecast) with all DSP effects applied, including the gapless playback. It features unique PCM to DSD real-time oversampling mode (if supported by DAC), so you can play your favorite music in DSD resolution. Neutron has special user interface with advanced functionality and is designed specifically for audiophiles and those who love music!

The absolute best in true audiophile playback!
Others have reviewed the player; it’s great! What I love is that I can use Apple’s Files app to copy music into Neutron - I created a ‘Music’ directory in Neutron’s folder, then added that as a source. In a time when I often don’t have a computer with iTunes, being able to do add music without a computer is essential.
I'm not sure what happened with the latest update but the app is randomly deleting song files off my phone. It's very frustrating.
Just paid for this app and it doesn’t even work.
Only finds 2 songs? I have hundreds of songs (purchased) in iTunes/Dropbox! UI is very confusing, as well. Does this app play music in the Cloud? If not, it’s useless to me.
I love this app and have had it since my Android days. Unfortunately, this update has slowed not only the app but also my 11Pro Max performance all together. I have a couple of other music apps but still my go to app for playing crossfade music 👍
I like the app, but the interface looks really really old, like ios 3 old. The best thing to do is to actually revamp the app to something more modern and appealing To use. Plus fixing the lag(freeze) that occurs every once in a while.
It’s the best music play back app out there but it’s so buggy. It doesn’t work half of the times! Terrible!
I've been using Neutron on Android for years. I tried all the apps that don't force Apple Music stuff on you and let you play your own music easily. You will not find a better app for music. It's stable, customizable and the features are what music aficionados are looking for in a player.
Good: Excellent sound quality and ability to tweak DSP and renderer settings. Bad: Very glitchy connecting to NAS, still does not fully update library even after many hours, and often reports “failed” when attempting to play an album. I am not able to troubleshoot adequately; every other device and app works flawlessly with my NAS setup. Maybe this app is simply choking on the size of my library (about 5800 CDs ripped to ALAC)? For me, the issues are severe enough that I probably won’t use the app routinely, a shame as the interface and sound is great. (MusicStreamer remains the king of reliable iOS UPnP streaming, at least for my large(ish) library.)
