# Audio On Android --- # Overview Roon uses OpenSL ES to accomplish audio playback on Android. This is primarily for convenience--Audiophile quality playback on Android is still in its infancy. For an in-depth overview of Audio Configuration in Roon, check out our [[Audio Setup Basics]] page. ## Format Support Notes By default, we set the "Max Sample Rate (PCM)" and "Max Bits Per Sample (PCM)" settings to 48kHz and 16bit, respectively. Some Android 5.0+ devices can support higher playback rates (and many others can't). This default was a conservative choice that maximizes compatibility with the widest range of devices. We've had good luck with up to 24/96 on recent Nexus devices. If you want, disable the limits in audio settings and see what happens. If that doesn't work out for you, flip back to the defaults.
