News from Germany


#1

There is a new DAC/NetPlayer from Audionet which seems to be very competitiv to the PWD including gapless via LAN.

The software is compatible to the PWD ( but without gapless via LAN, therefore we need a new bridge, I



There is an App for Android

http://www.audionet.de/main/service/audionet-amm/page.html

The App for iPhone will come in the near future.

And a Remote Control Point for Mac or PC

Works very good with NAS/Vortexbox and PWD.

Very interesting!
The GUI reminds me of Devialet (exotic).
Too bad it doesn't support iPad.... :-q

Shall be an option in the near future ( not as PSA defines "near future ) :wink:

I will surely try this.


#5

Looks great. Too bad the hardware side (their DNC) is $9000 U.S.


#6

@tony22 In Germany the PWD+Bridge is 5200€, the DNC 4900€.

But my main reason to post was the sw.

Would be nice, if someone with an Android would test the app and give his impression.


#7

my CD transport is an Audionet. It is a very very good product. One of the best!


#8

Now you can download the Audionet iMM from the App Store for iOS 7.

For non Audionet devices songlists are limited to 10 :-L .


#9

Tried the Android app and it is a bit sluggish, scrolls a little slow. My favs are still BubbleUpNp and UPnPlay. Both are very smooth and quick.

I updated my iPad2 to iOS7 and downloaded the app last night, however I haven't tried it yet.
Verdict will follow......


#11

Tried it tonight on my iPad.

Many flaws encountered.

- As already stated, Playlist is limited to 10 tracks which makes it completely unusable, IMO

- The library is browsing to the letter O - not further

- Very slow updating of album arts (if at all)

- Not all uPnP servers shown, but updates eventually (seems to work bad with Minimserver)

- 1 crash encountered

- Not possible to scrub or use FF

- Sometimes I have to restart to get into the menus of desire

- Volume not working*

- Mute not working*



* Wavestream used



I am a bit dissapointed so far.

Cannot compete with Kinsky or Lumin.

@frode

as I am no beta tester, I tested it without wavestream and I don´t like an additional computer in my chain.

Another point may be, that no PWD/Bridge combination seems to be equal to another.

I am searching for a stable, good sounding possibility to “bring” the music from my NAS/Vortexbox to the PWD. JRiver sounds very good but doesn´t work flawless for me (and needs another computer ).

Back to iMM

-The Library is browsing in my system from A-Z and the other points all work well, except FF.

I introduced iMM, because I looked for a methode to handle my PWD as I could do, when I bought it!

Kinsky is not bad, but iMM in my system works better. Lumin I never could get to run.



#13

Helmut,

The Lumin app only works with Lumin music server for the time being.


#14

does not work at all with me (minimserver, synology NAS, Mac). It just recognize the perfectwave, and the minimserver but no sound! so useless…


#15

Now you can buy that the 10 song limitation in the songlist is deleted.

It works with all my network server (Vortexbox, MinimServer on QNAP etc. ) My Mac is no MusicServer. Maybe Christmas…
