It works, and well
As of this writing on Jan 14, this app works. Tonight I downloaded the new version of 'Amarra for Tidal' to my MacBook and when I checked to see what this new update brought, I saw that the remote functionality that many users have been waiting for has been released. Now, the OSX AfT app is buggy, not very pretty beyond the surface, and a pain in general... but it sounds nice so many of us audiophiles are willing to be what they call "early adopters" in the tech world. Yes, this common releasing of unpolished work is not going anywhere, for many books actually advocate this way of developing technological solutions. So, while your music sounds better, your interface with said software will be slow to deliver the same level of polish of the actual TIDAL app. That said, this remote app (I guess because of the developer kit for iOS devices) seems more polished and fluid than the desktop experience. While your simply remote controlling the desktop app, it is a great asset to your listening experience and is worth downloading. 👍🏼. One bug I found immediately is an extension of the desktop software, and that is that my multiple hundred of track playlists don't show all the tracks included when you open them. I see that It recognizes they are there, but they do not show up unless you attempt to reload the playlist several times. Polish polish polish, and this will be a lovely app soon.
Mostly just fine but...
Audio quality is as expected from Sonic Studio. But the user interface is lacking one critical feature, NO SEARCH! This is an issue when you have thousands of tracks off 1500 album collected over several decades. I reinstalled Apple Music and will only use Amarra Play to remote Amarra Luxe. Close but no cigar.
For a thirteen dollar app that drives a 100 dollar bit of software on a Mac I’m finding it to be a hair buggy and unclear as to its operations.
It’s hard to tell if this is due to Tidal being not quite ready for prime time or just that the software needs a bit of development in the UI.
I’ll give it a try with headphones from the phone next.
The potential seems great, so I’ll try to be patient and see if a more powerful experience is in its way.
(My signal chain is iPhone to Mac Mini to Tidal to Schiit DAC to Parasound to Emotiva T1s. FYI)
