What's New in Version 2.0.1
- Addition of English Closed Captions to recent videos
- Bug fixes
astonishingly poor sound quality
I subscribed, and then was astonished by the terrible sound quality. Shrill noise artifacts accompany and distort every note sung by a soprano. In some paces, it sounds almost like sound effects from an old sci-fi movie. (This applies to both the Roku and iPad versions, using both headphones and speakers.)
The terrible sound quality defeats the enterprise. Audible digital distortion interrupts the quiet moments and makes the loud ones unbearable. What a disappointment.
