Praising Linn's Kazoo

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

 

Linn is known for software that lacks some features (thinking of Kinsky) and not very flexible, and also not the best in usability.

 

This time I decided to try the new control point for windows pc, the Kazoo.

 

I would like to praise Linn for making a very nice product.

It took me literally less that 3 minutes between start downloading the software and start playing songs!

 

I had the other pieces in place (nas server, minimserver running, and an ohMedia/linn player), but still I was very surprised by how quickly the software installed and how quickly it reads the server contents.

 

highlights:

- very fast;

- looks clean;

- compatible with minimserver

- designed for touch screens, but very useful still on normal pc's (

- fast search

- like all good control points, if you close it, music keeps playing (local playlist management on the player).

 

downs:

- is not compatible with iOS 5/iPad "now-classical-almost-retro" one!

- sometimes lost connection, easy fix...

- search is limited for some standard fields, personalized metadata fields are not searchable

 

results:

- Linn Kazoo is now my favourite (and fastest) control point on the pc.

- Lumin is still my favourite control point on iPAD 1.

 

Enjoy it!
