Audirvāna have unveiled Audirvāna Studio, a complete overhaul of the HD audio playback software that gave us an insight into the potential of computer audio a decade ago. Now enriched with numerous new features it will be available on May 16 only as a subscription service for €69.99 per year, or €6.99 per month (US$69.99/$6.99, £64.99/£6.49) and will be constantly evolving and improving. The previous version 3.5 of the software will no longer be available.
Audirvāna Studio software is available for MacOS and Windows 10 and comes with a free mobile Remote app compatible with iOS and Android devices. Audirvāna Studio exclusively offers Kernel streaming mode on Windows 10: an incredibly transparent playback mode, as close as possible to the machine language. This avoids all intermediate software layers. Mac users are not left out as Audirvāna Studio is already natively compatible with Apple Silicon and makes the most of Apple’s latest generation of processors in terms of audio performance. An additional oversampling algorithm, R8Brain, has also been added to allow users more options in optimizing the interaction with their system and converter.
The user experience and interface have also been thoroughly redesigned, taking into account the numerous suggestions received by customers during a major survey conducted last year.
