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.

Unstable & buggy

Don't make the mistake of updating to this version. It's now unstable & also forces you into setting up an Auralic account. Avoid until they sort out the problems & give you an opt out on setting up an account.

Finally it comes on iPhone!!!

All I can say is, I cannot live without Lightening DS!

I have been using Auralic Vega and Aries for a while. No need to say how amazing,awesome, or fabulous of the sounds they deliver. One of the biggest reason I chose them is simply because the Lightening DS GUI!

If you are downloading this app, definitely you understand what I say - you must be owner of Auralic products.

So, I don't need comment more about the details. Just try it.

The best music player GUI ever, that's it.
