Ratings and Reviews
Where’s the eq??
Some reviewers mention the eq, but it’s nowhere to be found. Some songs sound great, others are way too bass heavy and boomy. I need the ability to adjust the eq according to my tastes. Also needs a progress bar for the music so you can skip to a certain section of the music. App would easily get 5 stars if it had a user adjustable eq and a progress bar.
UPDATE: Well I found the EQ and the progress bar because I happened to tap right next to the play controls. Not the most intuitive or easy to spot placement, but OK. I know I said I’d give the app 5 stars if it had these features, but after using it a bit more, I’m giving it 4 stars because 1) the EQ could use more frequency bars to play with, or better yet, a graph that lets you adjust any frequency you want, like on the Onkyo player, which gives the Onkyo more clarity to my ears, and 2) this player puts a pause between songs that are supposed to run together but are listed as separate tracks, which is very annoying. The Onkyo doesn’t do this. All in all, though, a darn good app. The above issues shouldn’t be too hard to correct, which would make this a 5 star app.
Great Sound and Features
I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this app! It’s ability to decode dsf files Is a bonus! And the eq does an excellent job as well as the pre amp gain adjustment. So much to like about this-way better than the onkyo hr the player and this one costs less!!! Well done!
Developer Response ,
Two things are keeping me from using this app. First, it needs the ability to work with flac files contained in folders. I need to be able to input folders, up to three folders deep, which contain my flac files, in order to keep the files/songs organized. Otherwise, I have a big mess of unorganized songs. It also needs to keep multi-disc albums grouped together, instead of as separate albums. I will raise my rating if these things are fixed.
