Onkyo HF for iOS

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with this? Onkyo offers painstaking directions...for a version of iTunes that's way out of date. I've spent almost a month trying to transfer high-res files from my computer to iTunes and then from iTunes to Onkyo HF...to no avail, at any step of the process.

 

I've developed such an aversion to the complexity of computer audio, I really don't listen to music anymore. But I thought I'd give it one more go. Thanks...

Download and install an alternate file manager for iOS and MacOS. That should fix your problem. It takes iTunes out of the equation, and will allow you to move music files on your computer directly to your tablet.

I have the Onkyo HF player on both an iPod Touch and a Moto G Android phone. On the iPod Touch I can't just use a normal playlist with some Red Book and some High Res tracks on it, and I have to go through all the steps you outline above to get the High Res tracks onto it.

 

To synchronize the Android phone with an iTunes playlist I just need to create any playlist I like, including High Res tracks and use a program called iSyncr to just sync the lots without all the nonsense jumping though hoops opening 'apps' in iTunes and hunting things down in the Mac OS X file system.

 

Amazing really that it is easier to sync non-Apple devices with iTunes, and I have absolutely no idea what problem Apple think they are solving by not syncing High Res tracks. I would assume that if you've got High Res tracks in your collection you probably know what to do with them, and silently failing to sync isn't the most 'user friendly' behaviour.

System (i): (Stack Audio Link/MoOde > 2Qute+MCRU psu; Gyrodec/SME V/Ortofon 2M Black/EAT E-Glo Petit/Magnum Dynalab FT101A) > Glow Amp One > Klipsch RP-600M

System (ii): iUSB3.0 Nano/Allo USB Signature/MoOde > Bel Canto uLink+AQVOX psu > Chord Hugo > (Tandy LX5; JBL LSR305 ; Audeze LCD-3)

Apple used to be great. Now they're the new Microsoft. I switched over to Android for music and I'm not going back. There's no comparison. A lot more software is available, and you don't have all the restrictions.
