Ratings and Reviews
Works but with some unusual UX solutions
Connect to a pair of Beoplay 18s through a Node 2i. This app has actually been a bit of a pleasant surprise as I’ve used so many terrible music apps before, by B&O, Yamaha, etc. in contrast, this one actually works and plays both music from my NAS as well as from Tidal without any issues, very stable (fingers crossed).
My only feedback would be that the app itself is better on iPad than on iPhone — unless you understand how the logic of the app works (which isn’t completely intuitive) it’s easy to get lost on the iPhone app.
Two main things, you have your Library which is a type of home in the app, but that’s only for local files, if you have a music streaming service like Tidal, that ends up hidden behind a hamburger menu. If you enter there, you go into a type of “second home/library” just for Tidal. The app does a good job of replicating Tidal’s functionality. The separation also makes sense on some level but would be nice to have a direct link to Tidal from the home screen.
Unless you know it’s there, the “playlist” is not intuitively present or obvious. Would be nice to be able to swipe left and right on the full screen play screen to get to the playlist. Here, it would also be useful to be able to drag and drop to change the order of songs in the playlist — feels like a pretty basic functionality.
New to BluOS
This app and the Node 2i are outstanding. Sound quality is a step up from Sonos having tested both on top quality sources. The app is snappy and responsive. My whole experience with this ecosystem has really just impressed me and that is hard to do. All the streaming is easy to setup. Being a techno freak it gives a great balance of allowing you to tweak things and being to “Apple” locked down. The setup was simple- follow the app and everything just works. This app and all the features are laid out differently than others such as Sonos. Once you become familiar with the operation, it makes sense and works well. Currently, there is a NAS song base, and 8 streaming providers in the setup we have been evaluating. At least 30 favorites setup from those sources with everything working properly. The network access and catalog has been very good as well. Even the integration with Alexa was easy and works as well as most Alexa products do. Everything I’ve experienced is inline with the hi-fi reviews on the net.
Ignore the bad reviews
I'm stunned how many bad or mediocre reviews are on here ... this app has been fantastic and I've been using it every day for the past 3-4 years ... have a Vault, two Nodes and one Mini speaker that we move about the house and use quite often on the backyard patio ... all work great ... of course, you have to do the typical hardware updates, but it is very easy to keep things up to date (you get alerts when you start the app if an update is needed) - one could say the updates happen too often, but I think it's a sign of how much Bluesound cares ... and then, there's the sound quality - streaming Tidal or other high res audio files through high end stereos or high end speakers - some of the BEST sound quality I have ever experienced ... this statement coming from a major audiophile who has B&W Nautilus speakers on one system and Golden Ear speakers on the other ... I highly recommend the Bluesound system
