Default What Player program Do you Recommend on Android for Best Sound Quality Playback?

Hi All


On Android, the app HiBy Music is describing itself as
"A HiFi audio player featuring USB out"
and "support for direct USB audio on Android 7.x" (and above, I assume)
and is used by many people.
HiBy Music - Apps on Google Play


But on Android, there also Foobar2000, which is so prefered by many people, on Windows PCs:
foobar2000 - Apps on Google Play

And thre's also VLC for Android:
VLC for Android - Apps on Google Play


So from these 3 apps, which one is most prefered?
Does the last 2 apps also have the Direct USB feature that HiBy Music has,
or it's the only app with this ability?


Thank you

Oh right, the app that costs 8$..
I saw it several times in the past, and forgot it..
Thank you.

So now we got 4 options.

How can one choose 1 from them?

UAPP is very nice. MQA playback supported. Has direct USB, bit-perfect mode.

My apology, I should've emphasized in the beginning of this thread:
The purpose of this thread is to find what Player program on Android will give the best sound quality,
when connecting to an External DAC.
(either via the phone's USB OTG, or sometmes via Bluetooth, when using a Bluetooth Receiver+DAC)

I edited the thread's Title now.
(tho there was no room to mention there the External DAC part)

The software won't determine the sound quality, it is the hardware (DAC) and also Bluetooth has limited bandwidth so the audio is vocoded to fit within the available data rate.
