As a historic user of PC and Windows, I was looking for a nice and powerful hi-res audio player. Finally, it seems that I found it. The first impressions are pretty good on the sound quality, but there are still some things that I’m sure they will be fixed/improved quite soon.
Here are the cons I have noticed after my test this afternoon :
Track 2 is played a bit too early when the tracks are gapless, and quite early when over sampling is enabled
Can’t sort the track lists, none of the Name, Title or Track # sorting works
Any way to import M3U, PLS or F2K playlists ??
Drag & Add files to a playlist from an explorer window or any other app to a playlist ??
The dimensions and the position of the program window are always partly out of my screen. Can’t maximize the window
Thanks to all the Audirvana Team for releasing a Windows version …
We are both French but I’ll keep writing in English so that others can read this thread. But if you want to switch to French it is of course totally ok for me.
Yes it is happening with every album. I’m gonna try this on my laptop speakers to see if this could come from that I’m using a USB External DAC (Oppo Sonica DAC).
2/3) Ok, I hope this will come soon
Ok, but what would be very useful is to be able to drag files to playlists
I have set my Windows bar at the top screen area, and the Audirvana window appears always under this bar. It is then needed to “Restore” the position (right click on Audirvana in the taskbar) to get all the window in the main area
I would also add that this blue overlay line that appears upon every mouse move over the tracks, is terribly annoying, especially the 3 black icons on the left of this bar. It hides the track number and sorting manually is then very hard.
I just made some tests with 1020 for problem 1 on the laptop.
Let’s consider playing 3 gapless tracks without using fast forward and no upsampling…
When going from track 1 to track 2, the gapless is ok, making a smooth transition. But on the transition from track 2 to track 3, there is kind of a little audio cut (probably between 0.5 and 1s) which results in a bad transition.
I made this test both on my laptop speakers (ASIO & WASAPI) and through my Oppo Osnica DAC (ASIO). The gapless problem occurred on every situation.
I will stay tuned to your thread, I am still struggling with gapless, though surely caused by other circumstances. As mentioned, I am using a Yamaha NP-S2000. It is capable of gapless, even has its own settings for this. No gapless, not from Tidal not from locally stored files. The Yamaha App on Android (not MusicCast, a Special one), does play gapless from the NAS, but has no connection to streaming except Internet-radio. Same with some particular app, NEUTRO…
Damien: great idea this sw, makes any hardware shine. Even my setup, while I am still seeking the best speakers for me. Only thing I am longing for now is this gapless thing. 1021 just arrived, snif, no gapless…
I came to the thread hoping for some solutions. I have the same issue. Playing tracks locally on my windows 10 PC with Audirvana out to a Zan DAC v2 via either the ASIO or the Kernel Streaming on the transition from track to track , there is kind of a little audio cut (probably between 0.5 and 1s) which results in a bad transition that is very noticeable
Is there some sort of setting to fix this or something I need to tweak to eliminate this
I am not looking for gapless playback per se as in a seamless DJ mix - but this noisy cut audio between tracks is distracting from the otherwise awesome playback
