Absolutely the best music player for Mac. Cheap as chips ( compare the price with Audirvana). I’ve been using this since OSX Lion on a core 2 duo iMac (now using High Sierra on a music dedicated Mac Mini for AIFF playback from a NAS or USB hard drive) with zero issues from day one. Fast, reliable and sounds great. What more could you ask for? Very happy ?

It's frustrating seeing that each new version works even worse with Airtunes. At least with old versions I managed "convincing" Swinsian to play through my Airtunes by some swapping several times the output devices. But now it even ignores my default system settings having Airtunes as default output audio device at system level. And even more frustrating, no way to track the issue with some error log or any other feedback helping getting fixed this issue for once.

Definitely the best music player around for big libraries. I'm at over 250gb of lossy audio (about 30k files) myself and experience little to no lag when navigating the browsers and art grid. The customizability has allowed me to arrange the interface exactly to my liking. The overall lack of fluff while still having a fantastic interface is a godsend. It's minimalist, but not in a lazy way. Aside from a couple issues I've had, Swinsian makes other Mac OS music players look like a joke. Changing the grid's icon size is an exception to the lag-free experience and is especially frustrating because it's extremely easy to mess everything up with an accidental zoom gesture and go through the laggy, frustrating process of getting it to the right size again and again. A simple "lock" button next to the size slider would completely fix the issue. More importantly, if the developers are reading this, please PLEASE implement a dark mode soon. Among the many different applications I have running on a regular basis, this has been only one that has yet to give my eyes a rest even among a bunch of other third-party developers. I paid full price for this software and am disappointed that such a simple yet important feature is still nowhere to be seen.

I purchased Swinsian a week ago and I'm really liking it. I get the Column Browser back which the Music App took away, I no longer have to convert FLAC files to an iTunes readable format (a big time saver for me), and it's much zippier...iTunes (and the Music App) always had a 2 or 3 second lag when switching songs which never bothered me, but I think after using Swinsian that lag would bug me if I had to switch back to the Music App. It's not perfect. There's no Dark Mode. And while Swinsian did import all my playlists, album art and star ratings, it didn't import my lyrics. Even if it did, the lyrics window is way too small and can't be resized. Also, editing track info is awkward compared to iTunes...you have to select a track, mouse to the edit window and edit your info, mouse back to track listing and select the next track, then mouse back to the edit window - there should be a "next" button like in iTunes. Despite these small issues (and a few others), for me Swinsian is a step up from iTunes and/or the Music App and was well worth the $25.

Has worked very well until I wanted to change music library locations to an external drive for traveling. The developer is helpful and responsive so I anticipate this issue will eventually be resolved in time.

I payed for the Swinsian licence after short testing. The design and the possibility to get rid of iTunes rendered it really attractive. But unfortunately it keeps crashing and loosing connection with my Air Tunes device which is where I use to play music through. I would not pay for it again due to the described problems. These issues make it quite irritating.

Had it the playback speed control, it would be the best audiobook and music player in the mac.

Could be a great alternative to iTunes but Airplay playing is buggy. It stops playing with error connecting to Airplay continuously. Just playing some tracks make it crash when they are played with no issues with VLC for example. But if they correct this issues the application is great. But it needs fixing them
