Very good with minor caveats. This app allows me to play my flac encoded audio files from my Note 4 phone and (still using the same phone) a Western Digital media system at full quality via my Yamaha A/V anp. Vastly superior to bluetooth and no skipping! However, the skin for the app is dire ... trying to read track data with dark grey text on a light grey background can be impossible. We need the ability to alter the colours and then this app would be superb!
Lacks a lot of features and services. Uses Spotify Connect that is almost useless in a product like thus. How do you add songs toå the play queue from both local source and Spotify? This is a social app, not a single user system. Yamaha is no where near to be competitor for Sonos. Even the small devices does not have the sound quality of Sonos. And Sonos is not a good sounding product..
Musiccast has the potential to solve the one problem we need solved and it completely ignores it. I want to play the audio on my phone, not just control it. I already have $800+ earphones and a $700 phone with high speed WiFi so I don't want to spend another $500 on Bluetooth headphones that aren't going to be anywhere near the quality of what i currently have. It's so simple, whatever source the receiver is playing I want to hear through my Android phone. Make it do that and this app will be one of the most useful apps ever made.
It use to work great, last update broke something. Use to able to listen to Sirius no problems now it disconnects every 5 minutes telling I'm connected somewhere else which I'm not. Please fix it.
Musicast misery Great when it works. Sadly, a lot of times it doesn't work. Two main problems for me... 1. Internet radio won't turn off. The app loses control and I have to manually turn off my soundbar or restart my phone. 2. After setting up with Yamaha soundbar so everything works, next time I start MusiCast it wants to setup again which involves manually turning on soundbar, pressing connect and re-entering the wifi router password. Frustrating!
Works half the time Updates are always hit-or-miss. When it works it is an amazing app. But whenever Spotify updates there are issues with connectivity. I find I have to UNPLUG my receiver to get it to reconnect.
