  1. I've had problems uploading my files and I've only started uploading an album at time. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.
  2. Coppertino Launches New VOX Music Player for iPhone, LOOP Music Locker With Limited Time Discount - Mac Rumors "VOX for iPhone's key features include: - Support for nearly all lossless (FLAC) and lossy (MP3) file formats; - Full quality playback with no downscaling or converting; - Proprietary BASS engine delivers crystal clear audio and even makes and MP3 sounds amazing; - Easy iTunes integration including playlists; - Soundcloud, Last FM and other third-party integration. Along with the iOS app, Coppertino is also debuting its cloud-based music locker service, LOOP. LOOP is built into both the VOX Music Player for Mac and the new iOS app, offering users unlimited cloud-based storage for all of their music files. Songs stored in LOOP can be streamed in full quality to any device using the VOX Mac and iOS apps, and songs can be cached for offline playing. Unlike many popular music lockers like iTunes Match and Google Play Music, LOOP is able to support any type of audio file, including FLAC, playing songs natively through the VOX apps with no transcoding. VOX Music Player for iOS and Mac are free, but using the LOOP cloud music storage service requires a subscription that's priced at $49.99 per year or $4.99 per month." After reading this post I downloaded the app and was able to upload an album in 24-96 FLAC to my iPhone 6 and it sounded great. I've been using Capriccio but I like the Vox interface better. I'm curious if anyone else is listening to FLAC on their iOS devices, what app you use, have you tried this Vox app yet and what you think of their LOOP cloud service. I'm on the fence if I need to stream FLAC quality music to my mobile devices. I'm sure it's going to eat up my data plan. Just thought I'd start a conversation and pick the collective brains out there.

    How does JRiver MC for Mac stack up to Audirvana+ now?

    I completely agree with Larry (astrotoy). I have both and I use A+ for multi-channel rips and listening to a single album. I love JRiver for the library function, playlists and the "Play Doctor" shuffle feature. iTunes is dead to me.

    MOG is dead as of april

    From the little time I've spent with it, you must have a smartphone even to access the web player. Once I downloaded the mobile app and logged in. I was able to access the web player with that login. According to the FAQ, they will stream in 320kbps except for a small minority of tracks. What audio quality (bitrate) does Beats support? – Beats Music Support I posted a question on Twitter asking about a $4.99 web only subscription but no answer as of yet. There is only a $9.99 offering on the website. If that is the case I may have to stick with Spotify. I signed up with an email address I use for spam just to test it out. It's free for 7 days. I like the web interface. I'll post more when I find out.
