Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes - Page 105

AFAIK, Audirvana is the only player to support integer mode anymore after apple got rid of it in their latest OS updates.

There was also a dropout problem with the direct/integer beta in the last build.  It you had integer capable DAC or bridge, that build gave random dropout when direct mode was activated.  A new build was release today that seems to fix it.

Meh, I bought it black Friday and that's been my first Mac since like 2003-2004. I wanted to give it another try but I just don't think it's for me. Also 2,200 is a lot of money to a guy like me when I could get the same configure for half the price.

Man, I really like the new iTunes 11, but I can't figure out how to show bit rate and sampling rate anymore. I really hope they didn't do away with that feature..

Bit rate can be displayed in traditional list view (songs tab only atm it seems). Right click on the column header to show / hide specific attributes. The songs were sorted by added date first time I opened itunes11 just like the previous version.

Audirvana + seems to work just fine with itunes11. Tried with the "up next" listening playlist in full view and mini player mode ands it's all fine it seems! Really like the new interface, larger fonts / less clutter. It should also look pretty good on a 11' screen (am using a 15' mbp).

Still there...

Ah yep, didn't see that songs was the "classic" display. I like the artists and album views more, as my entire library is full albums and meticulously organized. But thanks for that.

I didn't even hear about iTunes 11 until I saw you post. Thanks for the update! I'll be checking it out once it's downloaded.

 

MAN that is one ugly interface! I miss the old iTunes 10 already...and I've only used 11 for 5 minutes. :(

 

Bit rate:

Ewww....

Sounds like an allergic reaction to change rather that meaningful complain (like we all get with anything in life as we grow older wink.gif).

If all you need is a column browser, just ditch itunes altogether and use simpler players like box or audirvana "stand alone".

Hmm, I'm enjoying the new interface quite a bit.

I do use Audirvana Plus, but I have some iTunes downloads.

 

There IS an option to bring back the sidebar! Yay, iTunes functionality/navigation = restored somewhat

At least I don't need to move the mouse much to go to different media (movies, music, podcasts) and interfaces (iTunes Store, iPod, library). I don't know WHY they decided to put those 2 things on the opposite side of the screen.

I'm with the graphic header up top. Can't get with the icon, though...blink.gif

+1

I think Apple did a marvelous job with this update. It's beautiful if you have a nice, organized library like me ;)
