Ratings and Reviews
For Chord Poly+Mojo, probably the best choice
The Chord Poly+Mojo sounds best to me when playing off the internal SD card, but the user experience has never been great because I’ve found the other UPnP/MPD apps I’ve tried to be finicky, buggy, ugly, or clunky. Very pleased to have found Rigelian, for me it’s much, much closer to the ideal experience. The only main drawback so far is the inability to pull my own album art off the SD card in the Poly, but from what I gather this is partly a limitation with the early version of MPD still used by Chord, rather than a problem per se with Rigelian. Let’s hope Chord can update this, and in the meantime I’m using Rigelian with enthusiasm, and a decent amount of album art is already coming in more or less okay for me via the online matching options. I would highly recommended this over other options for lovers of the SD card in Poly/Mojo (and presumably now the Chord 2go + Hugo 2 combo).
brilliant Roon replacement
Rigelian is an intuitive, well-supported macOS app (and companion iOS app) that I've been using to control my mpd-based music library and stream internet radio stations. Thanks to Rigelian I will be cancelling my Roon subscription, which is overkill for my needs, less user-friendly, and now costs $120/year. Rigelian costs less than $6/year and has provided trouble-free performance and great sound quality. Highly recommended!
The best MPD interface for iOS
I use a iPhone to access my Raspberry Pi music server running Rune Audio. This app is a dream come true. Ever since Mpod stopped being updated I’ve been missing the ability to shuffle tracks and select random albums from my collection. This app does that and more. Now art appears where it didn’t before and Thank you!!!! Keep up the good work.
