Excellent troubleshooting support from the Auralic forum

This is by far the best music streamer control software I have ever used, and I have used several over the last few years.

Awful software. Stick to cds or get another streamer

This software is dreadful. It stops works continually. I have wasted hours on this rubbish. This morning the software has stopped working yet again. I have been totally unable to get it work again after almost two hairs of hair pulling frustrations. The company who makes this software are as incompetent as the software. They take your money and run. I have contacted them time after time and they never respond. Do yourself a favour and totally avoid Aurelic, if you are foolish enough to get one then don’t throw your cds away. I guarantee this rubbish will stop working.

Lightning ds

This is the worst software available on the AppStore. Is is simply not stable. Auralic try to blaim the user for not using an adequate router. This is simply not good enough- in the real world many have Sky. Sky kit including the router costs less than a tenth of what Auralic kit cost and works almost faultlessly. Acoustically Auralic kit is very good but let down by software that is not fit for purpose. Unfortunately I am now invested in some very expensive hifi equipment that is badly let down by inadequate software/ communications.
