Lyrics in Audirvana

I think the point is, why add unneccessary bloat to a music player?
You can listen to the music in AS, and read the lyrics on lyrics.com, or one of many other such sites.

Thought I’d add, I don’t know if lyrics.com exists!

Yes… it is not active listening…
In the context of reading and listening simultaneously, “good quality” is subjective and beholding to contextual semantical and connotative interpretation and cognitive bias…
You can enjoy music listening with any other player in this mode…

This is my rationalization…

Why did Damien design Audirvana and what is the foundational dogma of the player design? Why do folks who already use Roon or another player want to use Audirvana now, when they get what they find lacking in Audirvana in those players…? I believe there is a differential that brings success and it is adherence to the fundamental dogma of ultimate delivery of the encoded bit-signal to the DAC… The name says it all “Audirvana”…

If implementing what I believe to be superfluous function, is inconsequential to the fundamental design dogma that Damien so proudly hangs his reputation on, then who am I to say what they want to do? Antoine himself stated that this is not a priority for them in another similar thread…

If I want background music, I have other players to do this with… But when it comes down to experiencing every expressive nuance of a musical performance and production, Audirvana is the player of choice for this immersion in the contextual details that translate into both enhanced intellectual and emotional appreciation of the production…

The details matter… :wink:

Yes music matters, but lyrics matter too. If it wasn’t so we would not have some vinyl issues with lyrics printed on covers. I do not have to look into center of my Lowthers to enjoy music, I can do it by looking into bottom of my glass, or reading some nice lyrics, or a book.
I was using Audirvana 3.5 with LyricsX until Origin came out with slightly better sound. And sometimes I return to it just for sake of LyricsX.
I am not a native English speaking person and it is easier for me to follow artist words if they written in front of me, as they are sometimes packed deep into music.
So I vote for option to have it as a choice. Many of us bought int.amplifiers with loudness option even though we knew we would never use it, but it was the welcome option for listening of some types of music in late night atmosphere.
