    Default KalemSoft Media Player VS Neutron Music Player: Audio Quality

    A question about the audio quality of KalemSoft Media Player and Neutron Music Player.

    Which one has the better audio quality? I already have Neutron, but it still stutters occasionally. Is it worth purchasing KalemSoft as a music player?

    Thanx

    Neutron has much better audio quality. If it stutters, your Playbook is running slower than usual and a reinstallation of the OS will most likely fix the stuttering. I had the same problem.

    May I ask how or why they should sound different or is it just stuttering?

    Curious.

    Can I have some?

    Neutron offers a wide range of options to customize the sound to your liking. There is a parametric equalizer, surround sound, crossfeeding to reduce channel separation when using a headphone, crossfading between tracks and gapless playback (very important for live or concept albums) and automatic gain control to reduce clipping.

    KalemSoft Media Player offers no such features, but it would be unfair to expect them in an app that is no pure music player.

    Technically, it's a graphic equalizer.

    The parametric equalizer is hidden away in the preferences.

    Ultimately both audio quality and stuttering I guess, Daglesj. If the audio quality is on par with Neutron then Kalem might be worth purchasing although others suggest that Neutron is a superior audio player. I get stuttering when i read docs and pdfs while listening to Neutron.
