  1. AFAIK, gapless is only on iOS at this time but it's probably better to reach out to Idagio and get an approximate timeline on desktop, android, etc.
  2. FYI, Regarding Idagio and gapless playback. Apparently, gapless has been available in iOS since April. Here is part of their version history:
  3. The one movement problem is what makes the Spotify playlists of classical music fairly useless. You have to stop listening, click on the the three dots, view album and hope that doesn't lead you to the sleeping baby collections. Idagio playlist, those put together by actual humans, were quite the opposite. Well thought out and reflective of the human thought process. I might be talking myself into subscribing again, LOL.
  4. @Jim Sylva @Bob Stern I totally agree that Idagio is a wonderful search and choice experience. I discovered many new interpretations as well as many new works. I really wanted to keep my Idagio subscription going, but after going round and round with their technical support staff for 8 months trying to get Airplay to work seamlessly, I gave up. I tried with my Sonore uR and my Airport express (via Toslink) and I always had one or two episodes of unexplained dropouts during listening sessions. @Hugo9000 When I left about 3 months ago, gapless was still unavailable. That was another reason why stopped the subscription.
  5. I'm not sure about their present format since I dropped their service several months ago. I still follow this topic in the hopes that one day Idagio will develop a DLNA app similar to Spotify Connect, with gapless playback. Airplay did not work out for me.
  6. I can't help you with your setup, but I do know that the only way Airplay syncs video and audio is if the device sending the audio is also playing the video. For example, playing a Netflix video on an iPad, or in your case a Macbook, and Airplaying the audio to your Lumin would work. Given the lack of inputs, perhaps you are trying to oversimplify too much?
  7. Thanks I see it now. Its on the bottom where the file format is shown. I was expecting something larger, like the Lumin Airplay display.
  8. Re: Firmware Release 11.5 (August 13, 2019) What does the second item do: "Add front panel MUTE display" I have an A1.
  9. I've used wired IEM's 40 years, since the original Sony Walkman. The convenience of not having to deal with wires, at the gym, while walking...etc. was a powerful attraction and when I finally got the JayBirds and experienced it for myself... It's hard to go back to wires. The SE215 has a two year warranty, whereby you can keep sending back the broken stuff to Shure (in Illinois) and they keep replacing it. The postage is cheap enough as you don't send back the accessories and packaging. You don't even need an RMA. Just download a form, explain the problem, include a copy of your original invoice stick it in a bubble pack envelope and you're good. I'll just keep doing that until the warranty runs out. After that I'm done. The form factor of putting a battery powered, sealed BT transmitter/receiver in a tiny compartment is apparently something that can't be done reliably. I've struck up conversations with folks at the gym and my experience is the norm.
  10. I ordered the Shure SE215 BT IEMs. They lasted less than 2 weeks. The charging cable no longer works. The LED stays on red. Pushing and holding the on/off button does nothing. Shure responded to send them back the cable and they would replace it. I bought from an authorized dealer (Full Compass) and they sent me an replacement pair right away. Fingers crossed but at this point I'm not optimistic about this technology.
  11. I tried starting up Lumin App with the Lumin A1 off. Confirmed that the TuneIn icon was not on. Then switched the A1 on, watched the Tunein icon come back on. The "Not Supported" stations are still there. Checked my Tunein account via Firefox on my iMac and the unsupported stations are not there. I'm not sure what else to do.
  12. How do you remove icons from radio stations that are not supported anymore? They still appear in Lumin App with "not supported" in their titles, but they do not appear on the MacOS web page. Lumin A1 Options> Internet Radio Setting>Update Radio Channels does not remove them. Years ago I signed into TuneIn and put a bunch of stations into my Favorites. I've since cleaned up Favorites, updated the Lumin and these still appear as unsupported.
  13. @kumakuma I'm a big Comply foam tips person. Expensive for what you get, but well worth it for sound isolation and bass response. The Shure SE215 look like a good choice. I like that they designed in the "over ear" placement similar to Westone wired IEM's. I have found that IEM's that make the over ear placement a design feature have a better fit than those that permit conversions from over to under ear. Those never feel right in the over ear position. The JayBird X4's were like that.
  14. I should clarify what I mean by reliable. Reliable would be 3 years use, although 1 year would be acceptable.
