Last update included a Rovi Database fix. This fix caused the Uniti Cores to stop playing and reset. This required a firmware update to clear. Unit is no longer resetting but now that I can finally use my core again it appears as if the app does not work the same with older versions of Android. This app is constant black eye for a high end audio company. I just lost the use of my equipment for a month because of an app update. And this is not the first time this has happened.

Thank you for your review. I can confirm both the APP release and the Core release are not related; both resolved different issues. If you still having issues, please contact or tech support team who will be able to support you.

I've been using this app for several months now. It is a bit disappointing, the OIS version flows better, using the back button doesn't take you back to the previous selection, but jumps back to the top of the list, it works fine on the OIS version. UPDATED The most recent update just killed Qobuz, but it is now resolved (thank you). If the back button function was fixed that would be a much better experience.

UPDATE: Qobuz have fixed their issue Hi Keith, the issue with Qobuz playlists is a result of a recent (unannounced) change on their side that breaks one of the Android libraries we use. In the meantime, you can global search for Qobuz albums in the app and play them from the search results. Please contact for any more help.

The app isn't the most horrible thing in the world, despite it being very glitchy and unstable. My problem is that I mainly use Tidal with my Mu-so Qb, and on my LG v40, many songs just refuse to play. Most commonly this is singles, or songs that there's only one of on an "album". But sometimes albums with 10+ songs won't play a single song from the album. Incredibly frustrating and makes me regret purchasing my mu-so qb.
