A dream is finally coming true!
You know, I’ve worked on this for years. I’ve always heard it. I’ve tried to explain it. I failed to get across to people what this is. . . . . but now that’s over. . . . .
The NYA APP speaks for itself. Everyone hears it. It doesn’t matter how bad your system is. Just plug your phone into it. NYA music sounds more alive through it. You can hear and feel the difference. You can experience the music in a new deeper way for yourself through any playback device.
I feel great. Reading people’s reactions to this APP is wonderful. Finally, it’s on a level playing field with everything else and can be truly compared.
It’s Music to my Ears!

Neil Does it again - Boundless50
Continuing his efforts to improve digital audio quality, Neil has hit a home run with a well-designed app that provides great sound (and flexibility when using a cellular connection) to enjoy even more his broad catalog of music. Now, if the technology could also be used with other artists’ music as well…
Great Sound Neil - JoeRay
I just downloaded the Neil Young Archives app and the music sounds alive; right out of the studio…Thanks Neil for 24 bit sound…Merry Christmas to all…
24 bit steaming. Perfection! Love m… - WK-Y
24 bit streaming from the iPhone, so simple! Perfect sound with no breaking up like the lower bit files. No more ssss. Even the 16 bit files sound better than Streaming from Tidal.
Why can’t Apple Music do this?
This is music streaming of the future!
I have Apple Music and Tidal, this is the one app I use the most now. I wish all the music is on your website, Neil, and all remastered in 24 bit. Use this app. Music moves again. I’m dancing and singing with it.
Yeah - Kathy
It works. Sounds great. Yeah you need WiFi for high res, that ain’t Neil and company’s fault, maybe on 5G in a year or two. Been using this site all year and app does it justice.
Neil’s done it again- AWLionelGuy
The difference is in the sound! Awesome app with amazing features. NYC allows you to listen to his discography the way it should be heard. Some navigation features are less than perfect, but I can’t wait to see the app evolve.
Must have for Longtime Neil Fans - BertTR6
The Neil Young Archives is a treasure that music lovers around the world can enjoy with complete access to the life work of Neil Young. The sound quality at full resolution is unquestionably the best I’ve ever streamed on my mobile device. The fact that I can access all the gems, including the rare and obscure ones, and hear like I’m in the room with the music as it was meant to be…..
Better than expected - Hum1021
I’ve been using NYA for a long time I think it’s easier to navigate using the app than it is on the actual site Great job!
If you like Neil, pay for the subscription. ..It’s well worth it.
Greatest music all of all time - Deathcoach
Nothing less than the greatest music app of all time!
Brilliant - Captain Daver
Simply brilliant app !!
If you like Neil’s music, or maybe are looking for proof that music can come in hi-res through your phone, this is your place. I love the music (it’s what got me to pick up a guitar), so this works well for me.
A must for Neil Young fans - tag302
With subscription you get access to EVERYTHING related to Neil’s extensive musical output.
In addition to music, NYA provides a daily newspaper, Te NYA Times-Contrarian, delving into inside the music stories and news of the day reflections. But back to the sound of NYA. . . . . .
Folks, what’s really amazing here is that even though it sounds great everywhere, there is much more to this APP’s sound . . . . it is all there on your phone and you can unlock it and play it loud, all of it, the Startlingly Great Sound of High Res- through your home system.
Realizing the full potential of Xstream by NYA
Now that you’re able to stream high res music anywhere, we want to offer some suggestions on how to use your phone and computer to hear Neil’s NYA music at its best quality. While you’d think advanced tech devices like iPhone could handle whatever audio is thrown at them, unfortunately the hardware manufacturers, including Apple, have never prepared for quality audio streaming. So, even though it makes an iPhone sound better than any phone you have ever heard, you are still not hearing all of what is being streamed to your phone.
Now that High Res Xstream by NYA is here, iPhones are unfortunately unable play all of it. While you can play NYA files and they do sound better than anything else, to hear the full High-Res sound from your iPhone, you’ll need this
Add a simple external device, some less than the size of your thumb, called a DAC, that upgrades the phone’s lower quality internal DAC. Simply, insert the DAC between the data port of phone (or computer) and headphone, speakers or amplifier, and you’ll hear music at its very best audio quality. Below are some DACs that are well-rated and capable of playing full High Res. They’re available from your local dealers and from Amazon.
Remember, a DAC is not something you need to make ‘Xstream by NYA’ sound better than anything else through your phone; it already is doing that and you can hear it. An added DAC simply will allow you to unlock and hear all of the music, more has ever been heard from any Iphone.
NextDrive Spectra - $149
Meridian - Explorer2 USB DAC - $199
Chord Mojo - $499
Today, some cellphones, particularly LG’s top models, are able to play high res (192/24) right from the phone with no added DAC. That is the way cellphones should be in the 21st Century.
