Comments and Ratings for Kinsky

Where is Tidal?! (4.3.21)
21/09/2015 23:04:00 1/5 By Jezza JC
Cannot rate this until it matches Kazoo. Must be able to call up and control Tidal. It cannot though! so no way of playing Tidal through DSM with iPhone control. Not good.

Old and Dysfunctional (4.3.15)

It really is a travesty that such a revered name in technology as Linn can be so dismissive of the "app" that drives £ xx thousands of beautiful hardware. Please fix it and maintain a policy of regular updates so we listen to music without the constant hassle of using your app that constantly freezes and drops connections. On top of that the user interface is so out of date with the rest of the market it is frustratingly unintuitive.

Great app (4.3.15)
13/06/2015 12:26:00 5/5 By Stripe36
I have a few apps that can control my linn systems, but this is by far the best. It's nice and easy to navigate around, queue music and work across two systems (brilliant feature being able to sync up two or more systems perfectly). Perfect blend of the iPhone/iPad with hi-fi.

Track order display issues (4.3.15)
22/01/2015 17:02:00 2/5 By Thierry Le Moine
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.

Loosing it (4.3.15)

Rubbish app. Just keeps loosing contact with the box. The Linn is almost unusable

Frustrating (4.3.15)

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.

KINSKY 4.3.15 works perfect on my iPhone, I cannot fault it at all.

Linn sneaky des and controller - frustrating rubbish (4.3.15)
30/07/2013 19:49:00 1/5 By 123angus
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.

Latest Kinsky update (4.3.15)
23/06/2013 10:12:00 5/5 By Jamie Dew Drops
I had problems with the update at first but I believe this may have been my network. All working fine now. Great App!,,

Very good (4.3.14)
06/06/2013 22:43:00 4/5 By Twinehtc
I bought a Linn streamer as I was getting tired of finding/changing CDs and so wanted to sit in my distant chair and select music according to my mood. It does what it claims, though there are a few glitches as you would expect from a niche app. For instance, under Genre/Song it no longer shows the alphabet selection, so you have to guess the position. However, the other selections work fine. The PC and iPad versions also differ, with the iPad variant being far superior.

From this dev.
