IRON MAIDEN , who have sold over 90 million albums and performed over 2,000 live concerts across the globe in their career to date, are now offering their fans the opportunity to get one more step closer to listening to their music as they want it to be heard. Introducing Maiden Audio App, a collaboration with Onkyo’s HF Player App, tuned for IRON MAIDEN.
Preloaded EQs tuned by all six members of IRON MAIDEN (Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith , Janick Gers , Steve Harris, Nicko McBrain) give you the sound of IRON MAIDEN as each member intends you to hear it.
The touch-adjustable linear-phase FIR equalizer offers 16,384 discrete bands of high-definition equalization with zero loss in audio quality.
Besides using the IRON MAIDEN Member’s EQ, you can also name and save your own custom EQ presets.
You have the opportunity to upgrade the Maiden Audio app to include Hi-Res 192 kHz/24-bit playback. Just ADD the HD pack, then you can take your Hi-Res albums on the road with full support for FLAC, WAV, and DSD on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Ratings and Reviews
One small issue - every couple of days the app restarts itself, I have to go back through the menus to find what I was last listening to and reset the eq settings. As I use this app everyday it is a little inconvenient, but it's a very minor issue.
Really good music player..
There are lots of settings to play with if you so desire, but as a standard music app it's so much better than the latest Apple iOS one.
Nice clean interface and easy to use.
