Ratings and Reviews
This works but Roon is much better. Support roon so you can focus on the hardware as the control software is not as good in comparison.
Does not support iPhone X, UI is pretty rough
The UI does not support iPhone X, the top menus weirdly overlap the notch and not easy to tap.
The UI in the app is pretty rough - circa 1990 music UI. A few improvements I’d like to see:
•iPhone volume buttons control Linn volume
•integration with now playing (to allow volume adjust and next track from lock screen and Apple Watch)
•Allow add to playlist from the currently playing track (super hard to create playlists while listening otherwise)
•Remove duplicate entries in Album view for albums with multiple artists
•Local caching of items to quickly display album art and lists of albums
•A lighter theme that doesn’t feel depressing (think Apple Music)
•Better designed controls for play/next etc. they look like a child drew them
•Ability to have a default music server and remove other services not used from sidebar
•Show album view or playlist view right away instead of an instruction to drop down the menu
Happy to share more if the developers want to reach out to me.
I’ve been a Linn user for 25+ years. This interface is a throwback. Kinsky, which I now use more frequently is better. Not properly compatible with apple products. I have it installed on 7 apple devices. On three it will show tracks from my media server but, when selected, will tell me the track is not available.
iPhone 10 app crashes repeatedly, generally after two or three songs.
Linn,I love your equipment but am nearing the end of my rope. And it doesn’t help that you have shut down the community forum where others could help with solutions to issues.
