A very competent app

Version 2.3
I’ve been trying the app out for about 2 weeks. It’s reasonably solid, though with the occasional connection problem (that lost half a star in this review). For me, the iOS app is the *only* way to realistically interact with the software (i.e. I will almost never use the Mac app itself to stream content), so I’d expect the connection to remain solid without fail, every single time. One possible fix, which I have not tested out consistently, is to toggle WiFi. However, there are times when the Mac App itself crashes and needs a restart.
The design of the app itself is also good, without being outstanding. There is a lot of space on the iPad version that does not get used, and there are additional gestural controls that could be brought to bear with little difficulty (this is where the other half a star went). For example:
- when the “now playing” window is expanded from the bottom to full-screen mode, I’d like to be able to simply swipe it down instead of having to tap the little down arrow at the top left.
- Similarly, I’d like to be able to see the high resolution tracks from Qobuz/Tidal right next to the song or album name, not at the far right of the screen.
- I’d like tags on songs with explicit lyrics so I don’t play them when the kids are around.
- The player controls should surface on the iOS lock screen like other apps.
A full star was lost for not being able to easily scrub within a song. Scrubbing to a different position in the track will often cause the app to hang, or move to the next track. This is pretty basic functionality IMO, for us to be discussing in 2020.
Overall, the app - more or less - manages to deliver what’s on the tin. It’s certainly better value for me than its nearest super-over-priced competitor whose name rhymes with room. Overall, I will probably end up buying the Mac app when my trial ends. Expect an update, if not.

Let’s you use your Mac as a high end music server. Add a good DAC and no compromise, in my opinion, over gear costing 1000s
Please extend support to Amazon HD music. Tidal is expensive and a little compromised for non MQA DACs.

Version 2.2
With the latest updates tying up some loose ends emerging in the course of transition from the older iteration, this indispensable extension of Audirvana player has reached the topmost level of functionality and design. It does pretty much everything you’d want a good remote to do. And it does a beautiful job of laying out your library. Nothing is superfluous. No gimmicks. Top marks app that rounds off what’s probably the best sounding music player on the market.

Version 1.8.1
Used to love Audirvana and the remote app. An absolutely perfect combination. But the latest version is more of a downgrade. Why do software developers have to keep changing things when the software was originally working perfectly well?! Like many others, I have a large collection, and like to navigate by Genre. Now you have to go into the filters area and select Genre, get back out of it, to see your albums. It’s a real faff if you want to select something quickly. Not only that, the app constantly chugs away pathetically to refresh album icons. I find it so bad that I’ve had to move on from Audirvana. Once Damian decides to listen to feedback about the remote and sort out the issues I might return. Very disappointed (and Audirvana itself is not cheap!).

I used audirvana for years with a high end system. However after the latest update the sound quality was horrible. I contacted them many times over 6 months and never received an answer.
So I would recommend to avoid it according to my personal experience.

I run both and for sound quality Audirvana beats Roon on my system , Stream HiRes in to Chord DAC , Naim Nap 250, Neat XL6 speakers. Roon has the better interface but not much in it. Both don’t allow you to increase font size on listing which I would love. If Audirvana could do that and maybe match Roon on the interface side of thing it would be a 5 STAR all day long . Very happy with my purchase strongly recommend Audirvana sounds full and real.

Beware! Operation can be flakey. App seems to have a hard time dealing with its data. Screen flickers, playback stops etc. And perhaps most annoying of all, the playback screen does not allow browsing previous or upcoming tracks without actually playing them.... that ol’ temptation of swiping left or right to browse then tapping a track’s artwork to choose - ahhh those were the days! I guess we’ve outgrown intuition. £3.99 and the promise of a ‘really good app’ would be a fairer price for this work in progress.
*** UPDATE *** Received a ‘considered’ reply (minus any ref’ to faults, obviously :/) from developer - thank you. TBH, I would have happily paid 10 x the price for an app THAT WORKED! I wouldn’t suffer with this if it were free. And no chance of a refund, nice System! To all those giving *glowing* reviews - lucky you. Maybe I’m just using the faulty version. When buying an app for use with a 14K audio system I guess I’m expecting it to work, not to have to troubleshoot every time I want to listen to music....too much to ask I guess. Last few days, app won’t play anything; so I’m done. Will use iTunes until I can find some professional software.

Brilliant app!

This app works well for me so far. I run Audirvana on my Mac and the app finds it every time. The layout is clear and logical. Finding music is simple enough. What the app needs is better filtering options. For example, I would like to set filters and toggle them on and off rather than editing the criteria every time. Also filtering using one filter with several criteria would be good. For example I would like to toggle on a filter (almost like Roon bookmarks) to show me all my Shostakovich symphonies. And finally it would be great if the library could combine my local and Qobuz music so I could search across my whole collection (local music and Qobuz favourites).

Use this app regularly over many months and it is such an easy way to get high quality output from mediocre input. Old mp3 files ripped back when are so much better through Audirvana and a DAC. The ability to control everything from my mobile (hifi streaming and legacy iTunes) increases versatility. Updates are regular and the support is second to none.

Still more to do

The work of the developers is never done. The new Remote app still lacks the sort choices available in the macos app. Sorting by date or by date acquired would be particualrly helpful. That said the combination of Audirvana and Qobuz is fast becoming the goto programming for classical music lovers with decent hifi amd it certainly leaves Apple iTunes for dust.
Update
After some weeks I am still using this remote/macos app combination in preference to anything else. Add in Qobuz if you can afford it and you have a brilliant threesome.

Good App

Update 11 Nov 2019
Thanks for Developer feedback. Working well now with latest updates. New interface is quick and stable and in my view, an improvement. Sounds as good as ever. Excellent at what it does
Update: The new version of this app (as of 31 Oct 2019) does not show Favorite Albums, Tracks or Artists. Completely unpopulated screen for local and Qobuz music. Cannot find any information about fixing this in support area. This is the main benefit of Audirvana for me so no 5 star review unless it can be fixed.
I use the A+ Remote to select albums ripped onto a Mac-mini with JRiver. The JRiver remote control app works well but the advantage of A+ Remote is that it will play albums from Qobuz (and Tidal) and it’s easy to switch between the local library and the streaming service for individual tracks as well as albums and I find it works seamlessly with no annoying breaks. The Mac is connected by Ethernet cable rather than wirelessly with both Audirvana and Qobuz programs left open. Output is via USB to a Digital Analog Converter and then the Hi Fi system. Sound quality output from Audirvana is excellent. Really happy with the A+ App

Feels like a downgrade

So the Windows 10 style theme has now been completely enforced on MacOS / IOS users which is a shame.
This new version of the remote app, especially using on an ipad pro feels like a downgrade. Especially the album browser. It no longer has the quick album view pane on the right hand side. why not atleast implement a pop-up mechanism whereby you could long press on an album and get a quick view of the contents without losing your location in the list of albums.
The browser also does not remember your last location and resets to the top row of albums every time you navigate away from it. The alphabetical shortcuts also disappear after the first instance. So it become a real pain to browse your albums if you have more than 20....

Does not work with A+

This appeared on my ipad two days ago (presumably as an upgrade to the previous remote app, which worked perfectly). It is unable to transfer music files to the play queue. I can play files which are in the queue but manual transfer makes the remote seem pointless.

A really useful companion to the desktop app that gets steadily better over time. The latest update has brought a much needed rethink of the UI and a significant performance boost. It’s still missing a few features versus the desktop app, like better sorting options for albums, but hopefully those will be addressed in time.

I’ve been using Roon for a while which is impressive but expensive. However, it has also become unreliable and slow. Enter Audirvana which on previous trials I recall not being fit for purpose, but having seen the release of an update with MQA I thought I’d try again. Voila, it works well now and I think sounds far superior to Roon. Perfect then? Not with this app it isn’t. Badly designed (next to Roon it looks like a child did it) but worse than that it just wont stay connected which renders it useless really. Pity ‘cos Audirvana itself seems good now.

I quite often find that the play queue is one ahead of the actual track playing! App seems to lose sync with the desktop app running on my imac.
Access to Tidal good, shows Master MQA clearly.
Sample rate from Qobuz shown as 44 kHz even though should be higher for my purchases.
So overall, so so typical UPNP app that only works in part.

I hesitatingly bought this, despite some reviews complaining it was clunky.
My experience ? Works blisteringly fast on my 50+ years collection of mp3s, ripped FLAC cds and dsd etc files. No issues with it. Mind you, I’m probably not as sophisticated as some reviewers, having never mastered playlists (why ?) but this app will help me get even more enjoyment out of a fantastic piece of software!

I note that there is a critique of this app saying that it is slow to load and needs a lot of work. Well, I am using a relatively old iPad Air to play my music and write this comment.
Once I had loaded Audirvana+ on my MacBook Air and entered the appropriate code, the loading of all playlists and albums was extremely quick. I only have a few albums on my NAS and the rest comes from Tidal.
I hesitantly bought this App because I suspected that having to have the MacBook available would be inconveniencing but was driven to it by my wife continually hogging it and not being happy if I asked her for it to load my music.
Works fine!

A visually attractive app that is badly let down by very poor performance.
Loading times are terrible. With a large library, well over a minute is usual.
Not worth bothering with until the developer does a lot more work.
