OK. Trying to use the latest build with Tidal (which I rarely go to, but I got a hankerin' to stream). Absolutely the biggest piece of dung of an interface possible. Dual scroll bars on the right. What the...? Text that overlaps other stuff... having to open and close the side panes to be able to see anything. My god. Have you ever even tried a decent interface to music. Try any other one. It will show you something better than you produced!
Have to use search because nothing else works well enough to find any music. Search items disappear from right pane after scrolling! Have to back up, sometimes have to re-search entirely. Total crap. Also the listings for albums that are shown are incomplete so that I can't really tell one version of an album from another. Of course you will blame Tidal for this but their site lists the differences.
Wow. How can you charge thousands for such nice equipment and completely ham string it with such an amateurish attempt at a user interface. Honestly it is disingenuous of you to advertise that you support Tidal with this as the only way to get to it.
My complaints are independent of browser. Don't even get me started with how badly your web page acts with Safari. Gee wouldn't you think that many if not most people who are trying to use your stuff might be using an iPad or something similar? Do you even test the webpage with different browsers?
If you can't tell that I am totally pissed off after using this interface, then you are a poor judge of written English.
Exactly my points from last week.
I stream RadioParadise-FLAC as I said earlier but through utter frustration moved to Squeezebox months ago for streaming controlled by iPeng on my handheld devices. I put my BDP boxes to rest.
After reading the responses following my prior post in this thread, I was wondering if I was missing something and that my dismal experience with MM was an anomaly. So I woke up my home BDP-3 updated to the latest MM release and decided to stream for the weekend.
I have a backyard with three 2.1 channel Bryston powered zones. My family hangs out in the yard all day as we enjoy the outdoors and listen to great music. So Saturday morning, after about an hour of music dropouts, repeated tracks and truncated tracks, my wife was exasperated and asked me what had changed from previous weekends when the music flowed seamlessly from morning into the night. I told her that I had switched to a Bryston box with "upgraded" software. "What a joke!" was her response, "please go back to what we used before, this is too annoying!" I could not agree more. And don't get me going on us trying to control the Bryston through our handheld devices.
So apparently my previous experience was not an anomaly. Granted, to my ears there was a discernible improvement in SQ moving to the BDP-3 but not hearing a track to its end and having tracks randomly repeat, completely diminishes any SQ improvement. If "the demo is everything" then this experience did absolutely nothing positive.
Like it or not, streaming is here to stay and if Bryston seriously wants to be in the digital player business, then much more attention must be paid to the user interface and user experience of its players.
