What's New in Version 4.1.28
This app was very easy to set up and works very well. For those experiencing problems, it would be very useful to download the Cambridge Audio Minx Xi instruction manual as it gives details on how to get the best from this app. Setting the unit settings to 'idle' allows the app to 'wake up' and switch it on. Pressing and holding a music folder from an external source gives the options to either play the album or add to the 'queue'.
Hope that this helps those having difficulties.
Very impressed with both the Minx and the app.
Earlier versions were poor at retaining the connection to the Stream Magic, and this has now improved, a lot. It still takes a while (30 seconds or so) to populate the music directories - I have about 1200 CDs which I don't think is that many. I have upgraded to a synology nas which may have improve connectivity (was an old buffalo nas), but I think the app has improved over the years.
Actually Better Than Most Reviews Say!!
I don't understand why reviewers complain about this app. I have had a Stream Magic 6 mk1 since Jan 2014 and used this app with iPad Air & iPhone 6 it works very well and in some respects is better than Linn's Kinsky app. Where I have had problems with the app I have reported the issue and the developers have fixed it within a reasonable time. Don't be put off the app or a Stream Magic.
