Track order display issues
The app will display album information in numerical track order only if one selects by 'album’.
If one selects by ‘artist’ or anything other than ‘album’ the app displays tracks in alphabetical order. The app does not make use of meta data files for album artwork.
Linn advised me that this was because it is a “dumb” app and that the fault was with the media server in my LaCie NAS drive where my digital music files reside.
My Linn dealer advised that, to get correctly displayed listings, I should only use a recommended NAS drive, in their case a QNAP with customised software media server installed.
I look forward to a user friendly update, where the app intelligently displays the album tracks in numerical order without dependency on external custom software.
Linn sneaky des and controller - frustrating rubbish
I bought a Linn Sneaky DS along with a Sonos system. Love the sound quality of the Linn, everything else is pure frustration. Really rubbish software for ipad, and windows to control the Linn. Consequently I use the Sonos over the Linn which is a real pity. You guys in Scotland HAVE to sort the controllers out. The system is vertually unusable. Every time I think I will go and listen to the system, I end up frustrated and not getting the sound out, or it taking so long for it to work that I just go and listen to Sonos. I am so close to just junking the system and buying another Sonos component. Recommend Linn, NO not until they sort the controllers out.
Love the build and spud quality of Linn products. However the iPad and iPhone companion apps to drive the DS is frustrating! I want to be able to open the app and start playing music. But it seems almost every time I go back to the app it's lost connection and the only way to reconnect involves turning off the wifi on the iOS device and then turning on again and then wait for it to see t again. This can't be right!? Oh and btw the UI design is super ugly IMHO.
