Audirvāna Studio Trial Extension

And what about the settings?
It’s the only application that I have, and I must have about 100, with which I have to lean forward.

It’s already way too small, but click, for instance, at the setting of the upsampling to choose a mode…

Look at all this empty wasted space at your screenshot that could fave been used to offer you a bigger display of text and icons.

I’m a user and I have no ambitions to run a software company. I’m not the only one to complain about the user unfriendly size of the text. There are many others who do it.
As I told you, it’s the only application on my Mac with which I have to lean forward to read what is written.
But with users like you who do not have a critical sense, AS will never improve, because you send negative feedback by claiming that it’s perfect like it is.

Haha evidently.

It doesn’t even work!

And I don’t care about what you don’t care about :stuck_out_tongue:

This discussion is going in the wrong direction.

If result is just to oppose people that think AS is not reliable and doesn’t look good enough to people that think is good enough.

Everybody has the right to give his own opinion, without being judged.

What is see right now, looks more like an expression of frustration and reaction driven by ego.

Damien, if you would spend some time, answering and explaining issues and next steps, it would probably help, and AS will have a chance to win clients instead losing all of them.


I’ve run Audirvana and Roon on a dedicated Mac Mini for awhile. The sound quality of audirvana has been my preference but I generally go to Roon because the user experience for me is superior. I just completed the AS trial and did not buy because of the lack of remote. I too would like an extension to check out the remote. But what the heck I’ll probably subscribe anyway.

I’m sorry for you. Just too many talks. The developer seems to ignore us, at least for the moment. Was just my opinion. Use it or leave it, no offense. It’s a problem that works for me? It really works! And is just a trial, maybe a beta trial but a trial, you didn’t pay for AS. Or if subscribed I’m sorry for you.

Hi Jim

How are you running AS , Laptop / USB DAC ? or via a network feed to a DAC.

I suspect a direct USB connection will work fine , it did for me for my Audioquest Dragonfly Red connected directly to my server but completely failed , even to play , to my networked Cambridge Audio CXN.

I can understand the confusion but AS is being touted as a Audiophile Grade player and hence should be considered as a Network player to hi fi component streamers and hence to Hi Fi equipment , even if it can do a more “compact” set up.

To do this without a remote is not really practical, my server is several rooms away from my listening spot and I am less than quick on my feet I miss part of the album.

Each to his own …

Yes you are right Dgsly.
At least once a week, Damien should tell something about his efforts in improving AS. I am an user of Audirvana for more than 4 years, and now I am leaving the boat to join Roon

Please tell me something if you know. I know you are not Damien but…

Why my tracks are multiplied?

I use the latest version in win 10, changed the database location, even created a new empty db but the problem persist. Do you know any solution? Thanks!

PS: I didn’t wanted to start a new thread for this, if someone know…

There is already a thread for that problem.

Thank you. I did what is wrote there and still have the same problem, i deleted the duplicates and for the moment didn’t came back.
Another problem is that this is a very “sensible” software, or is about programming.
For example now it works very well and is stable, but if touch the settings and for whatever reasons AS is not compatible then BUM! - blue screen and restart. For example I tested some vst3 from izotope. The first - BUM - restart, the second - BUM, the third works etc. My computer is very stable even if it’s slow, wiorks 24/7 without crashes and no blue screens except AS. But let’s be fair - with actual settings it’s ok.

Hi @Antoine

A trial extension should automatically be provided to all users who have registered for AS because:

There is no remote app and we do not know when it will be released

We have been your Beta testers throughout the trial period, we have helped you improve your product with bug reports and feedback



Maybe you should tag him, @Antoine good point the one above

Damien will reward us our hard work with a free remote.
We will be authorized to keep it as a souvenir on our phone, even if we do not subscribe. :smiley:

If you have version 3.5, you’ll be using the new Remote even if you don’t subscribe to Audirvana Studio.

Hi bitracer,

I don’t have A3.5. I have A2.5.
A friend lent me his A3.5’s activation key a few days ago, so I could check the sound issues that @VoyagerDude reported in the bit-perfect thread.

I’ll start my trial when they add a column browser. Oh, wait, that apparently will never happen. It’s like a car company saying, “try our new wheel-less model!” Hard pass, for me!

Honestly, how hard can it possibly be to look at iTunes (Music) and simply take the parts of it that work well, while building in better sound, more file playback options, and more extensive metadata options?! That seemed to be the initial trajectory of Audirvana, five years ago, when I started using it.

I really still don’t understand why @Antoine felt the need to reinvent the wheel after version 3.2 and abandon all of us who enjoyed everything about that platform. 3.5 had better sound, but I couldn’t tolerate fighting with the interface constantly. Now, @Antoine AGAIN abandons his loyal user base, in order to AGAIN release a complete revamp of his software, which AGAIN further hampers and undermines basic music library management software functionality.

It also baffles me that I’m one of the only people who sees this omission as a major deal-breaker. Who on earth cares about how music playback software upsamples, if the user can’t even find the file they want to play?!

What is wrong with the Audirvana “development” team? I honestly don’t know that I have ever seen a business run in a more amateurish manner. This software has not been ready for prime time for at least its past two major releases. Get it together, @Antoine!!!

When you do, I’ll happily take that free trial. Until then, I’ll continue using 3.2.20, [mostly] hassle-free.


Why do you use A3.2? It sounds better than A3.5?
