Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes - Page 138

post #2056 of 2219

Yes, in fact user interface of Audirvana Plus 2.0 will look very much like that of iTunes with main window showing album tittles/artworks, artist and song names. Both applications can be used separately without interference. Of course the only way to know final implementation is to wait for its launch in near future.

To be honest I don't want two library's, even if A+ is able to provide such a function. I still need to sync my IToys so what would be ideal for me is that I could point A+ to my iTunes library and have it access the music from there while giving me a nice library view.

Maybe that's what's in the works given the already existing iTunes integration.

I'm a new user and got Audirvana+ to play FLAC and DSD files on a separate HDD, leaving the normal MP3 files on my iMac to be handled by iTunes. I do not intend to use A+ to play my iTunes music.

It can be done now

I agree.

I downloaded the demo of Fidelia on my Mac but could I get to to play a track? Could I hell. It's gone.

It looks like it's JRiver for me.

:sigh: Your very first post and you got ticketed for speed reading? Not a monthly subscription...

I demoed both of these platforms 18 months ago and liked them. I just happen to like the latest by A+ better. If your choice works for you, then... thumbsup.gif

So what is it... Monthly subscription or Annual Subscription or neither... Maybe the author of the article is wrong...

If you go to their website, click on their Press releases and Articles link, click on the Atlanta Business Chronicle press release and read the article, you will see where I got my information. 

Do you know which one is right?

Ah... :wink_face: I'm the ONE with egg on my face for not initially reading carefully last month. I merely glanced at the front page and noted the "No Subscription Required." Had I looked at account types, that would have tipped me off. Well, at least the eggs were from "Cage free & Vegetarian fed Hens." :tongue_smile: 

 

:thumb: Yes, you were right... subscription model. But "Free" for a measly 250 songs a month across 3 devices, I'll note.

Thread Starter 

I've updated the first post and the wiki. Songbird (the company) folded last year and the app lives on as Nightingale.

 

I've updated the descriptions for Vox and Audirvana and removed the non-updated programs.

Clementine for lossy music files

Cog for lossless :)

 

EDIT: Just downloaded Audirvana Plus and using the trial for now, since so many head-fiers on this thread and others recommend it so. Wow! I am loving it, the sound quality, practicality, and resource-handling just blows me away. I think it might be my only alternative player to iTunes on Mac OS X :D
