Feedback on new UI (v.3.5+)

The new UI is a very inefficient design.

I often browse by genre, e.g. jazz, and scroll through the playlist in track view. Now I see just 14 tracks at once! I hope we will be able to make the view MUCH more compact in an upcoming version.

Why are we forced to have a big empty column on the left of the track view?

Search results are even worse. For example, I have 21 Brubeck albums, but only 3 are listed in the standard search view. Yes, I can click on ‘see all’ to see all the album covers but it’s an unnecessary step to take every time. Seeing just 3 results for each attribute type is basically useless (except perhaps for the artist column). Why isn’t there a list view option?

The settings view is so big and clunky - it reminds me of the Skype disaster, as someone already pointed out. Now the settings are spread over 6 screen heights, whereas 1-2 would be possible and much more convenient. Why make us scroll so much to get to what we need?

Some column headers are completely out of line with the rest of the column. See the Track# and Disc# columns. What a mess!

The info window is way to big and clunky, much like the settings view.

And slightly off topic, but it appears there is still no support for the volume control on Macs with Touch Bars :frowning:

However, I did find one positive thing: I do like the overall color and look of the dark mode.

You know you can move the columns left and right to make them thinner… can’t be seen but place your mouse between the titles

I enjoy the sound and look of Audirvana a lot. I do have a question and/or recommendations though.

I wasn’t able to search within the library by text, more specificially the “My Music” section from Tidal. Is there any way to filter those (based on text)? In Qobuz or Roon you can filter the currently viewed list with an extra search field. Are there any plans for Audirvana 3.5 to include such a feature? Or did I just not find it?

Unfortunately I must agree. That’s why I am stuck with 3.2. Will ever an improvement take place?
