IINA

IINA embraces the latest features of MacOS, including an interface theme designed for Dark Mode and picture-in-picture compatibility for watching video playback while working on other things. It supports everything from the MacBook Touch Bar to trackpad gestures for controls. There’s also some interesting innovation under the hood, including the ability to play online streams and YouTube playlists via IINA, as well as all your local files. If you’re looking for an interesting player that thinks outside the box, give IINA a shot. Since the player is open source, you can also expect additional interactivity in the future as the community grows.

Clementine

Clementine is an open-source player that has consistently added features over the years, all available for free. It can play pretty much anything, from CDs and local playlists to internet radio, with quick switching between them as necessary. A large number of micromanagement features make Clementine a good option for organizing your music, including smart and dynamic playlists, downloading album art and artist biographies, and even enabling MacOS desktop notifications to keep track of… well, your tracks. It may all take a bit to learn, and the interface has a bit of a dated look, but the sheer number of options lets Clementine remain one of the top Mac media players available.

DEVICES SUPPORT

  • Just 10 devices make the limit for Google Play Music.

  • VOX erases the limits. The limit on the number of devices you can use the service on is one of them. If you’re a music recording studio, and you have, say, 6 Macs, 2 Apple Watches and 11 iPhones, how do you get access to the same music on all of them? VOX can be the easiest solution.

In the end of this feature battle, we want to mention some great integrations VOX Premium features can provide.

  • SoundCloud integration, and the feed from the people you follow on SoundCloud can be accessed freely
  • Radio that hosts over 3,000 stations worldwide
  • LastFM integration
  • the opportunity to listen to YouTube music directly through the Mac app (the same feature for iPhone is currently being developed). No fees applied for that which makes it a great YouTube Red alternative

What to choose — VOX Player or Google Play Music — the decision is up to you.

Which online streaming service to choose

Most of the people these days are already using one of such services one way or another. Remember when was the last time you opened YouTube? Correct, it is also one of the popular streaming sites. You may love it or hate it (those ads!) but one cannot deny that one can find almost everything there! The great thing about it is that it has not only a collection of various videos and parts of the movies (sometimes even full versions!) but it also has a great music library.

SoundCloud is our other favourite in the field of online music streaming websites. One gets an access to a very wide variety of songs and music, written by both popular and independent artists. One can filter songs by word, artist or genre, and pretty much create a personalized radio for themselves. One can also save the songs to their collection in order to listen to them one more time or even download some of the tracks.

Radio must be the oldest representative of the streaming services. It has experienced ups and downs throughout history. From having just a couple of waves everyone listened to, to many different radio stations around the world. Moreover, the format started to change – now one can access the station they want to listen to online, from any device that can connect to Internet.

Now, let’s check out the advantages of online music streaming:

  • You can listen to it 24/7.
  • You have a great variety of music to choose from.
  • It does not take up your phone’s or device’s memory.
  • You can listen to it anywhere.
  • In most cases it supports various systems – you just have to log in to your account.
  • You can create your personal playlist and it will be saved for you.
  • Based on your preferences you can listen to new suggestions.

And only one big disadvantage – you need to have the good and stable internet connection everywhere.

BitPerfect

Для тех, кому нравится iTunes, существует стороннее приложение BitPerfect. Оно не имеет отдельной оболочки и встраивается в системное меню. BitPerfect автоматически, прозрачно для пользователя, интегрируется в iTunes и выставляет режим устройства в точности как у очередного файла в плейлисте.

В случае устройства Oppo HA-1, которое поддерживает все возможные форматы, вся эта вкладка нам совершенно не нужна, так как она будет заведомо ухудшать качество звука. Для прослушивания звука так, как это задумали на студии звукозаписи, следует оставить значение по умолчанию: Do Not Upsample.

Оговоримся, что BitPerfect не является панацеей и требует для максимального качества записей поддержки всех необходимых режимов и возможности побитного вывода данных. Bit perfect, то есть «побитовая точность», возможна только в этом случае.

Additional Features. VOX Music Player vs. JRiver

JRiver

Apart from playing music, users can:

  • put tags;
  • rip and burn CDs/DVDs; 
  • create smart playlists;
  • convert audio formats. 

There are many audio setting, but unless you’re a professional audio engineer or a music geek, you’ll get confused just like I did. 

VOX Music Player

I’ve already mentioned Spotify, Last.fm, and SoundCloud integration. As for audio settings, VOX offers:

  • Equalizer.
  • BS2B (Crossfeed).
  • Track Buffer.
  • Gap/Overlap.
  • Sync Sample Rate.
  • Hog Mode.
  • Extra Volume.

Apart from that, there’s an online storage for your music. It’s called VOX Music Cloud. 

The cloud serves as the main place to keep your music and stream from it to your devices. VOX Music Cloud is an unlimited online storage. You can upload there as much music as you want. It also has no restrictions on audio formats or file’s size. If your upload thousands of FLACs, it’s fine. You can listen to them on your iPhone and Mac. VOX Music Cloud is available only to VOX Premium subscribers.

Learn more about VOX Music Cloud

Now that we’ve learned about these players, you can try any of them and see how it goes. I prefer VOX Music Player because it’s easier to navigate and use in general. JRiver would suit best for audio engineers and audiophile who know things about sound equalization. But I’m not one of them. 

Ecoute iTunes helper or a separate Mac audio player

Ecoute is an audio player for Mac which works together with iTunes. It makes one’s life much easier – you still have your good old iTunes, but all the clutter is taken away, Ecoute has taken care of it. iTunes’ library is being accessed and played by Ecoute. The great thing is that it can not only play music tracks, but also podcasts and videos. One can also integrate with Facebook and Twitter in order to boast in front of everyone about your excellent music taste 😛 .

Overall, it is a good audio player for Mac, not too innovative but stable and intuitive. Good choice for someone who knows what they want.

FORMATS

  • Dropbox accepts all file formats. We mean not only all types of music files, but ALL possible files, Word document or MP4 video. That is good, by no means. However, an audiophile interested in keeping music in cloud has no way to listen to it through cloud directly. There is no player (so far) connected to Dropbox that streams music from the cloud directly to the headphones or speakers.

  • VOX Cloud won’t accept your wedding videos or the research paper you wrote in your freshman year. It will, however, accept any of the following file formats in unlimited amounts: aif, aiff, ape, alac, aac, m4a, mp4, caf, flac, mp1, mp2, mp3, mpc, sd2, vorbis ogg, spx, tta, wav, wma. Audio formats supported but played after downloading only in Loop (not streaming): it, mod, m4b, s3m, ay, mo3.

GXT III Enhanced Guitar XTraktion
The Guitar XTracktion feature has been dramatically improved, making it even easier to cancel or isolate a particular track or instrument. This highly-evolved GXT III engine can extensively analyze songs that until now were difficult to work with. The engine has been tuned to obtain a more natural tonal character, and now you can use the JamVOX-Online site to search and download GXT III settings shared by other JamVOX users for a specific song.

Performance Interface
The updated user interface is based on an analysis of the workflow involved in learning songs by ear, practicing, and jam sessions. Also new is the large and easy-to-use full-screen mode, transforming your computer into your own personalized performance studio. The music player shows the waveform of the song, providing a clear, visual indication of the song's development and structure. You can zoom in on the playback position to practice that amazing solo, or set up the repeated playback of the bridge or chorus that you're practicing. JamVOX III provides the performance environment that every guitarist dreams about.

Movie Recording Feature
Using your computer's webcam, the new movie recording feature lets you capture video of your own guitar playing. You can review your own performance with the aim of improving your skills, or upload your performance to a video-sharing site so that guitarists around the world can watch it. The song will start playing automatically when you press the record button for the movie; there's no need to press a separate record button and song playback button. This movie function is designed specifically to aid guitarists in recording their own playing.

Elmedia Video Player

This MacOS media player has an incredibly smooth, stylish interface that offers something very different from iTunes while still looking like a part of your Mac. Playlists are easy to create and sort through, and controls are very intuitive: We especially like the common sense broadcast button that allows you to quickly link to any connected device like speakers, Apple TV, or a smart TV for various audio options. File support is also strong, with compatible formats including M4A, WMA, MP3, M4V, and dozens more. There’s plenty of focus on video as well, so it also works as an alternative movie player.

The best lossless music player

To our mind the best lossless music player has to be easy to use, lightweight, multifunctional and to be able to play lossy music as well (because it would take ages to change your whole music library from lossy to lossless). We did some research and would like to present you our findings. Here are a couple of players, which we particularly liked.

VOX – the best FLAC player for Mac and iPhone

VOX might not be a pioneer in the field of lossless music players, but it is definitely one of the leaders nowadays. It is available for a free for both Mac and iPhone, and the Android and Windows versions are coming very soon. It can play a rather wide range of music formats, both lossless (i.e. FLAC, APE, ALAC, etc.) and lossy (i.e.MP3, OGG, etc.) Its developers added an enhanced Bass technology to its audio engine to make sure you get the most of your music’s output. In addition, it gives you an opportunity to synchronize your music libraries between Apple devices. This can be done with the help of VOX Cloud – music cloud storage. It is absolutely infinite and is available for VOX users only. Another great feature sounds as a saviour: if you know that you might not have Internet in the next couple of hours, you may download some of your favourite tracks and/or albums for offline listening. And the last but not least, VOX has a very easy, intuitive interface – so easy that you will not have to think where is what. Stream music via AirPlay to your loudspeakers.

And VOX is a FREE Music Player! Download it here.

Swinsian

This rather popular player is available for Mac users only. The good thing about it is that it can play both lossy and lossless formats. But one of its biggest advantages is its speed of work – it is one of the fastest players nowadays. It imports your iTunes library within seconds and helps you organize your music library no matter how big it is. Swinsian also features a playback via AirPlay. With the help of various shortcuts and different ways to customize your library, you will keep everything under your control. Besides, if you prefer a minimal interface, you can always choose a mini window or a desktop widget. Neither of them will take too much of your desktop’s space but will still tell you what you are listening to at the moment. It costs $19.95.

Foobar2000

If you are a Windows user, you may consider downloading this player. Why? Because it is one of the best lossless music players for this system. It is completely free and offers a gapless playback for all formats it plays (the list is very long!). Foobar2000 also allows one to customize their interface! It might sound a bit tricky, but what wouldn’t you do to have the most convenient lossless music player for yourself with a number of useful features? It is also very light and will never slow down your PC (it is one of the lightest players in the world). Another amazing feature of this player is ReplayGain – it makes sure that all music you listen to has a relatively same volume and loudness. All in all, Foobar2000 provides a personalized experience for Windows users. They are also fundraising for mobile and tablet versions now – so hopefully there will be even more happy users very soon!

Fidelia

Fidelia, just like VOX, emphasizes its ability to play a very wide variety of music formats, including the ones which are not supported by iTunes natively. It offers many different tools and features such as headphone processor and sample rate converter, all of them are aimed to enhance your experience. Another useful feature of Fidelia lossless music player is that you can listen to your music on pretty much any device with the help of AirPlay. Lastly, they created a very interesting app for your iPhone, which basically works as a remote control for your Fidelia player; you can effortlessly browse within your music library and only your wireless network will be the limit. It costs $29.99.

VOX music player online music streaming

To save your time and make life easier for you, all of the online music streaming services we talked about today were added to one of the best music players nowadays – VOX music player. Why do we call it the best? Simply because it offers great playback for both lossy and lossless formats as well as having a number of useful features.

One of the VOX’s features provides an opportunity to easily add songs from SoundCloud to their Playlist and mix them with the songs one already has in “hard copy”. You can just merge your libraries within a second! Thanks to another recently added feature, one can listen to YouTube tracks directly – you just have to add the URL to Vox using CMD+U. This feature works only for Mac, but we are doing our best to make it possible to stream Youtube with VOX for iPhone. The same way applies to playlists. If you prefer, you can just move your playlists from your Mac to VOX – so easy! VOX also offers a wide selection of radio stations for all music-lovers, of all styles. You can add it to your account if you go to your In-App Purchase Options and choose ‘VOX Premium’. It costs just $4.99 per month, but it gives you access to hundreds of music stations of various genres forever + Premium Music Features + Exclusive Unlimited Music Cloud Storage!

Probably the best feature of VOX music player is still VOX Cloud. If you haven’t heard of it before, you are quite lucky, because you are going to be introduced now to one of the greatest gifts that can be given to a music lover! VOX Cloud is a cloud-based music storage. It is not an ordinary storage, which can be adjusted for your music files, it is a special music storage, created in such a way to keep your music the way it is (all formats are supported). No quality is lost, never. VOX Cloud also allows you to synchronize your music libraries between Mac and iPhone, as well as download your music tracks for offline listening.

FORMATS

  • Google Drive accepts all file formats. We mean literally all: videos, archives, text documents, music, anything. If you have a large music collection in FLAC and upload it into the Drive, it will compress all your music into MP3s, though. The waste of the money you paid for your FLACs, isn’t it?

  • VOX Cloud won’t accept your wedding videos or the research paper you wrote in your freshman year. It will, however, accept any of the following file formats in unlimited amounts: aif, aiff, ape, alac, aac, m4a, mp4, caf, flac, mp1, mp2, mp3, mpc, sd2, vorbis ogg, spx, tta, wav, wma. Audio formats supported but played after downloading only in Loop (not streaming): it, mod, m4b, s3m, ay, mo3.

Vox

Vox supports common files like FLAC, MP3, CUE, and APE, as well as high-resolution audio files for up to 5.1 channel support — ideal if you have your Mac connected to a larger speaker system and really want to take advantage of it. The Vox design isn’t too shabby either: Controls are friendly for both Mac and iPhone, and you have a lot of options to tweak playback as well.

If you are interested in paying for the premium version, you get access to the Vox music cloud, which allows you to sync your music between your Mac and iPhone — a nice little bonus if you switch between devices a lot. Premium also includes internet radio stations and a lot more.

Итоги

В целом, Audirvana Plus проявил себя как наиболее проработанный плеер для прослушивания музыки на Mac. Здесь все сделано для прослушивания музыки в реальной жизни, когда компьютер используется и под другие задачи. Но и стоимость этого плеера самая высокая. Если у вас нет желания тратить деньги, то Vox выглядит довольно неплохо. Если нравится интерфейс iTunes, то можно пойти на компромисс и купить не очень уж дорогую надстройку BitPerfect.

Высококачественное побитное воспроизведение музыки на компьютерах с macOS возможно даже при использовании iTunes, но только если вы согласны вручную менять настройки устройства воспроизведения в дебрях ОС и не запускать другие программы, которые выводят звук. Если компьютер при этом активно используется, то лучше использовать сторонние медиаплееры. Они обеспечат автомат частоты и монопольный захват устройства воспроизведения, чтобы не дать другим приложениям подмешивать ничего в звуковой тракт.
