July 26 2018, 01:00
Audirvana, maker of Audirvana Plus, the hi-fi audio player first released for Mac users, announced the commercial release of the highly anticipated Windows 10 version. This new version features a totally redesigned user interface designed to change the way PC users enjoy and organize their music. The French software house is also teaming up with audio streaming services Tidal and Qobuz in its support of higher-quality streaming options, including MQA support and Qobuz Hi-Fi Sublime+.

Created by Damien Plisson and acclaimed by users and audio specialists around the world, Audirvana Plus has quickly been recognized as a reference music player, enabling music lovers who have a Mac to replace iTunes and dramatically improve the sound quality of their music library.

“After abandoning Windows for several years, I have to admit that I rediscovered this operating system with great pleasure to create this new product,” says Plisson. “I always keep in mind the same objective as for the Mac version — to obtain the best possible sound quality.”

According to the company, Audirvana Plus is able to improve the sound quality by significantly shortening the audio signal path in the computer, and removing all noise and other electromagnetic interferences, while at the same time employing very high-quality algorithms, superior to those used in digital-to-analog converter (DAC) chips, performing the necessary digital processing before conversion to analog, to deliver better audio fidelity.

Audirvana Plus for Windows 10 provides the same benefits as Audirvana Plus 3.2 for Mac, while offering PC users a new, intuitive and fluid interface. Audirvana Plus for Windows 10 also offers the latest developments, such as a new “View by Artists,” in addition to View by Tracks and Albums; direct selection of the audio device on the main interface; a redesigned search engine: new mini-player mode: and choice of ASIO or WASAPI playback modes.

In addition to these latest innovations, Audirvana integrates into Audirvana Plus for Windows 10 the existing benefits of Audirvana Plus for Mac, such as playback of all popular audio formats, including such Hi-Res audio files as FLAC, WAV, AIFF, DSD, and MQA, integration of streaming services Qobuz, Tidal HiFi, and HRA-Streaming. Like the Mac version, the Windows 10 application will also offer compatibility with network players that properly use the UPnP/DLNA standard, says Audirvana.

"With the new Windows 10 version of Audirvana Plus, Audirvana is responding to public demand and the growth of the digital audio market, as well as the strong growth of streaming services, by offering products specially developed for music lovers," the company stated. Audirvana Plus for Windows 10 is available for $74 USD/ €64 (excluding taxes) and there is a 15-day free trial version.
