01 December 2019

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.

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.

Yes most helpful version comment is for 2.0.2 in 2014, thank you macupdate.com We are now at 3.5.20 in 2019. If you can't use that simple player with your DAC or on a network or with a PC, now with a remote on MAC and PC... stay with iTunes... let Apple rules you :)

I own the Plus version and downloaded the latest upon release. I use it with a high end studio quality audio interface and I possess a lot of Audio Unit plugins. This was never a problem for the old version, but now it simply won't play a single track. I have contacted support whose sole advice was to trash all preferences and download the app again. Same thing, no sound. Nothing.

Et voilà, le meilleur est crevé et devenu ordinaire. C'est du passé pour moi. Rien n'est éternel. J'avoue quand même que j'ai passé un bon moment avec.

Ich finde der Sound ist nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht überragend. die Bedienung ist eine absolute Katastrophe. Wie letztes Jahrhundert.

Die ältere release, also vor 3.5 war in dieser Hinsicht wesentlich besser. Kann aber mit 10.14 und 10.15 leider nicht verwendet werden

I have the "Plus" version and just updated to 3.2.5. It produces good sound, but it does not load my music library properly. There are some albums showing multiple times but with only one song in each showing. I have tried to fix this problem, but with no success!
