Do you think forcing 96/24 would make it output at that quality?
No, it won't. Samsung's version of Pie doesn't support 96 kHz. It cannot just take it as it is.
It will take take it, but then either up- or downsample it using its own mechanism for this.
If you want to make sure that a higher frequency is used and the upsampling is done by Neutron,
let Neutron upsample and put out a supported sampling rate, then the os will take this.
Alright, I will do that! Again, thank you so much for this, you have been of great help!

Acoustic Research M2

With recommended settings Neutron resamples anything to 48000. What I see in Audio Hardware whatever content is playing.
DRV: AudioTrack (JNI) [LINE-OUT]
Frequency: 48000
Bits: 64(out: 16 int)
Latency: 240 (min: 21)

There is no options in Generic Driver
Frequency setting only list 48000, there is no other sampling rates

Why all of a sudden the "Hi-Rez Codec (Direct PCM) only does Maximum volume? How do I know the custom setting uses the Quad DAC in my LG-v30?

Did you follow the advice in this topic ?
Could you provide information about your settings, e.g. screenshots of Settings > Audio Hardware ?
When you press the 3-dot-button on the playing-now-screen repeatedly you can gather information about the sampling rate and bit depth of input and output, what does it say there ?

Sorry, I don't understand that.
And I cannot access the image. If you want to append a screenshot, save it on your device, then add it with the "Attachments" tab here. If you don't see it, switch to "Full Editor".

Yes, that's not high-res-output.

What about the settings in Settings > Audio Hardware ?

Since 1.97.0 version Neutron supports Hi-Res Audio output to the mobile devices which support it and have dedicated on-board DAC (ESS, XMOS, Qualcomm, ...) for Hi-Res Audio. The Hi-Res Audio must be supported by firmware of course. Minimum Android OS version is 4.4.

To make sure you have guaranteed Hi-Res Audio output (if device supports it) there are number of prerequisites in Neutron's settings -> Audio Hardware:

1) Generic Driver = ON
2) Generic Driver -> Hi-Res Codec = ON
3) Generic Driver -> Hi-Res Speaker = ON
4) DSP Effect (Device) = OFF
5) Low Latency = OFF
6) 32-bit Output (IEEE 754) = OFF

The easiest approach is just to reset all settings of Audio Hardware section to default (middle Undo button in the bottom of dialog).
And what about Settings > Audio Hardware > Frequency ? Do you have a choice there between several frequencies ? And can you perhaps choose a higher one ?

I noticed another thing : you use the speaker, not the headphones. While it should work with the speaker ( if Generic Driver -> Hi-Res Speaker = ON and the device and the os support this ), the chances are better for the line out with headphones - perhaps you could give that a try.

( There may be people walking the earth who can actually hear the difference between high-res and not-high-res. But they can surely not do that using a smartphone speaker. )
