16 October 2020

Core Audio-powered music player with high-quality sound.

Overview

Audirvana has no equalizer, no trendy special effects, just the best sounding music

  • Native playing of FLAC, libSndFile (WAV, AIFF, ...), ALAC and other QuickTime formats (AAC, MP3, ...)
  • Direct sound path, directly to the !CoreAudio HAL for pure bit perfect sound
  • Audio Device exclusive access mode
  • HAL I/O using DAC native physical formats "Integer Mode" (instead of CoreAudio 32-bit float)
  • Automatic sample-rate switching
  • Up/Oversampling capability
  • Plays completely from memory
  • Tracks are loaded, decoded, and sample-rate converted in a memory buffer before being played, minimizing CPU and hard drive activity to lessen sources of interference
  • Gapless playback by using a double-buffering mechanism (playing track and next track)
  • Transparent split load for loading tracks of any size
  • Background tracks loading/decoding (including sample-rate conversion)
  • Playlist (M3U and M3U8 formats) load/save
  • Handles Apple IR Remote
  • Automated updates downloading (using Sparkle)

Got it and love it! I have over 14,000 albums onboard and it handles them all quickly and accurately. My only issue is that you cannot access your Mac's volume control when this app is running. Aside fro that I find it to be a remarkable audio app! Oh yes, it works on Catalina with no issues at all.

Search is so slow I would call it non-functional. Sync *IS* non-functional due to taking 4 or 5 forevers to finish every time it runs. Allowing my mouse pointer to even touch an active window sets the beach ball spinning for several minutes. This is basically a useless program for me. I get zero enjoyment from it

Apple Music cannot display most of my artwork which sucks sooooo bad... Audirvana shows them all.. go figure.. I'd give it 5 stars if the UI wasn't so bad.. It looks cheezy as does the logo) and is not well thought-out. It feels like there is no real UI designer in that team. The website looks homemade as well.. They could take a hint from https://vox.rocks or Native Instruments This is 2020 not 1995...

I bought Audirvana after a trial because of its really good sound quality. But after using it for 5 months I have to say that it has become so slow that I cannot use it without swearing anymore. Every time you click into an album and then go back to the main list, you get the spinning wheel. When you scroll up and down the lists, you get the spinning wheel. I mean c'mon guy at Audirvana, upon a little bit of googling, you see so many reports of people complaining about how SLOW your software is. Can't you just fix it? I am using the latest 3.5..33 version. I really can't recommend this product.

I like Audinirvana with Tidal streaming, but it only works for me about 50% of the time. On my Macbook, half the time I use it, the music doesn't connect to my amp or speakers, just plays through my computer. I haven't found any troubleshooting answers.

I purchased this software, but they never sent me a license key or an order number, so obviously I can’t use it. There is no contact information on their website. What kind of company would not provide contact information to their customers??? Now I’ll have to dispute the charge with my credit card company. Ugh! What kind of people are these?

This is a great application if you want to hear your music in the best possible quality quality. I tried several others, but this one is the best and it also could stream your music to UPnP-devices, like the ultraRendu.

If you want to use Audio Units with this, which is why I bought it many years ago (and it ran flawlessly) you can forget about it. It simply doesn't work with AU engaged. Nothing. No sound. I figured it was a bug they'd sort out so I left it over a year before updating and they haven't fixed it. Check their support forum and you'll see its the same with everyone. Worst customer response I've come across in a long time. To know that their product fails in one vital area and just leave it broken for years when it's a unique selling point. I'm speechless. Now I'll spend all day tomorrow trying to go back to a 2 year old version that worked.
