What's New in Version 2.0.2
When connecting HA-P50/SE, HA-P90SD, HA-P5 with iOS10, the Hi-Res sound sources could not be reproduced. This has been fixed.
※In iOS10, when changing sampling frequency, the pop-up for connecting devices always displays. In this case, it will not appear from the next time by selecting “Don’t ask me again.” in the pop-up display.
For starters if you are wondering why this looks like the Onkyo HF Player, it's because it's the same app due to Teac owning parts of Onkyo. That aside the app is great! It does what it says and does it well. I have tested this with all the supported formats and all of them work wonderfully! I can't figure out why the media art won't show up but oh well.
This app isn't designed for looks, it's designed to be simple and straight forward. Instructions are very easy and is full of EQ features. I have not run across any bugs but all seems well.
I have tested the sound differences with ALAC files and this app does make the music more spacious and detailed especially in the mids with no EQ settings. TEAC did a good job with the audio processing here and it makes your lossless formats stand out! AMAZING! After testing I converted all my music to FLAC and they run great still and my DSD files also run great! I don't have any external DAC and use Sennheiser 598 and occasionally a Fiio E11K AMP.
For anyone wondering I use this player for all my lossless music, Spotify Premium for my HQ streaming, and iTunes for any other lossy format.
