Oh, no streaming support.. I won't bother.
Although I have moved to Roon but I still have Audirvana plus installed in my MacBook.
They lost me with the move to a subscription and loss of features in the initial releases. I started looking into alternatives and bought Roon lifetime. Audirvana WAS the best choice for me for many year, no more.
Man that sucks! I bought a copy of Audirvana Plus a few years back and am still happily using it on OS X 10.15, so had not looked at newer versions and had missed all of this. Hopefully I can avoid being forced to upgrade for a bit longer...
Also, from memory I paid much less for Plus than they are charging for Origin, despite the fact that they have removed all support for streaming services. Even with the discount for existing owners, it's kind of shitty value
I had Audirvāna Plus and had to switch to JRiver when Audirvāna would create double entries for every single file in my music collection. I cannot figure out why or how that was happening and I just got fed up with it. I did try a trial of their sub based app and I did like many of the features but the price was way too high.
Audirvana devs have some great ideas and technology but it hasn't been a good customer experience for many of us. I use an older version mostly for adding AudioUnit plug-ins for DSP to Tidal. My sense is that they don't give a damn how we use it or want to use it though.
I haven’t used Audirvana, but I’ve had really good success with JRiver. When you purchase a license, you essentially receive lifetime support. The development team will answer questions about older builds on the JRiver forum.
