Hmmm. I have used Audirvana for years, with iTunes and Qobuz. The move to a subscriber model doesn't bother me. But the pricing does, somewhat. For me, I must now pay Audirvana and Qobuz nearly $20/month, altogether. Qobuz on its own provides significant value for me. Audirvana does not alone in comparison. So, if push comes to shove I'll ditch Audirvana. A shame. It's the pricing, not necessarily the subscription model that's the critical decision for developers, and their customers. And the perceived value. I only use Audirvana occasionally when listening to Qobuz with certain DACS. Otherwise I use the Qobuz player for convenience. Thus the subscriber model can be costly. On the other hand. I have multiple Audirvana licenses to cover multiple machines that I use exclusively. If the new subscriber model is a personal license across my machines, that would make the pricing shown on the web site ($5.90/moth) more palatable. If not, the monthly cost of using Audirvana across my machines would not be worth it. Good luck folks at Audirvana!
