Description

The most intuitive and enjoyable way to control your Linn music system; whether you have one or more streamers at your home.


ARTIST VIEW

Searching by artist yields comprehensive results; with artist bios, top tracks, albums, ‘appears on...’, and related artists all contained in a neat, scroll-down list.


STREAM AWAY

All of your favourite high-resolution streaming services – TIDAL, Qobuz, and Deezer – and internet radio services airable, CalmRadio, and TuneIn are fully integrated inside the app. All Linn streamers are also compatible with Spotify Connect. TIDAL Radio and personalised ‘My Mixes’ pull through to Linn app too .


GLOBAL SEARCH

Quickly find what you’re looking for across all your streaming services and stored music content, all from one place.

The revamped global search function allows browsing by artist, album, genre station, or track; and pulls through gorgeous artwork and artist photography in a much-improved and better integrated experience.


DARK MODE

For a more cosy experience, when the lights are down low, dark mode is available via app settings.


NOW PLAYING

An enhanced Now Playing view displays beautiful, large-format album artwork, and includes all transport and volume controls on a single, uncluttered screen.


YOUR PLAYLISTS – ANYWHERE

Your playlists are stored in the Cloud, linked to your Linn account, meaning you always have access to your favourites – from anywhere and at any time – and can cue them up on any Linn streamer on your local network.


UPDATE AND CONFIGURE

Regular, free, over-the-air software upgrades bring performance and feature enhancements to your Linn streamer. It’s easy to ensure your system is always up-to-date with the latest version directly within the app. The ability to manage and rename sources and rooms is embedded in the app settings screens too.

Love it!

Simple and logical to use.
Really like that I can see system updates and update the system in app a great step forward as I can’t remember the last time I used my iMac. Intuitive lay out with everything easy to find, a modern app for the 21st century, good work Linn.

Short lived (but quick response Wow)

Wow, lasted 30 secs before it crashed. Have tried it a few times and had to uninstall each time and then re-install. Same thing each time. Kazoo is far from great but it works. I would like to see the app being able to access all areas of Qobuz but continuing to work flawlessly. Come on Linn, you come up with awesome things like the Klimax and then operate it through 2nd rate software. Really!

Update: 21 Feb 2020
DSM updated and app re- installed. Happy to say it works a treat now. Actually prefer it to the Kazoo version now because it feedbacks what tracks are being played (particularly radio) where Kazoo would fail to do so at times. Prefer the lighter UI to the darker Kazoo and the artist graphics which give a more pleasant interface. Could still be better with additional info etc but for the time being, well done.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear your initial interaction with our new app has been poor. We have released an update that has fixed numerous instabilities, it would be helpful if you could try this version and see if your issue has been resolved. If you are still having an issue it would be very helpful if you could contact our help desk and help us to get you up and running.

Not really sure that it adds anything to the user experience

Linn may well have revised the coding to simplify and re-structure, but the user experience has taken a backward step. The old one was perhaps the best out there and while I have Naim kit I prefer the Linn app. Although the 2 apps were very similar the Linn app was closer to my needs based on using both for an extended period-around 2 years.

Just to pick on one but very important element. While the list view may be fine for iPhones, it’s a total waste of the available iPad screen (of any iPad size) - filling 90% of the screen with a block off-white. Rothko inspired I suppose.

This must be an error otherwise a fundamental flaw in design and /or zero vision. While a mixed bag the Lumin app is a long way ahead of every other app in artwork presentation - the user controls the size of the artwork from a list view to multiple artwork on the screen to one artwork item.

There’s so much more that can be readily done to fundamentally increase the user experience, but that’s clearly a long way off or perhaps never. The quality of digital music is in urgent need of a quality companion app.

The iPad revolutionised the use of computers and despite its fantastic screen there are some out there who insist on reducing it to a ‘green on black’ experience.
