Good but needs polish and bug fixes

The app has a great set of features and is easy to use. Volume seems lower than other apps with same source. The music stops as expected when removing Apple AirPods Pro from ears but has difficulty resuming once they are put back and you press the button on the pods to start playback again. Sometimes when trying to resume with the app in this situation it seems stuck. The play/pause button doesn’t update and toggle when pressed and the app must be force closed and reopened to resume playback.

iPhone 11 Pro Max all updates installed.

Thank You Onkyo! Five Star Quality!

If you aren’t aware - the latest update release note roughly translated to English means: made correct = corrected issues = fixed some bugs.
Take a look at your most recently updated Apps, you’ll probably see something like this;
‘we corrected issue xyz and fixed some bugs’

Well, Onkyo is telling you the same thing, got it? Good.

Now, I really don’t understand what all the fuss is about. I’ve never seen a single ad*, no sign of a mini-player, the UI is intuitive and my music library is organized and looks very sharp.

Listening to your music precisely how you like is what this App is all about as the equalizer gives you an infinite amount of adjustment. So tweak it to your liking.

side notes -
• probably no ads because I’m on a VPN
• excellent equalizer presets with the added perk of listening to presets from top musical artists
• it makes perfect sense to me
• do you know how to properly use your iDevice
• don’t be afraid to explore the App

I’ve been on an iPhone user since the first day the original iPhone was released for sale in the United States back in June 2007 or so. I think I’m on my twelfth iPhone or thereabout and I’ve owned more than 4000 Apps over the past 11 years or so.

Middle management strikes again

This is a solid piece of software ruined by idiotic middle management who, looking for a feather in their cap, decide to add ads and ruin an otherwise perfectly useful product. I know the engineers didn’t do that.

I, like many people, hate ads and will not tolerate them. I would be willing to pay a few dollars to remove them. But $10 in an in-app purchase that can’t even be shared? Absolutely not.

Onkyo burns good will treating their customers this way while the original app had built good will. I own Onkyo hardware but when a company “pulls a Sony” I not only refuse to give them my money with future products, I become an evangelist against them. So, middle managers, do the math: you have received no payment from me, I block ads, and now I refuse to buy your product and persuade others not to as well. That looks like a loss to me.
