The app oﬀers intelligent search functionality and full access to, control of and even the creation of user-deﬁned playlists, folders and album grouping functions. File information, track detail and app-in-app search, select, and compilation functions are easily accessible. Qobuz and Tidal users will be pleased to know that, unlike some other apps and platforms, the hi-res and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks can be easily identiﬁed with icons within the app itself, with no need to hop between the service and device apps to ﬁnd such content.
Unlike comparable technology from other manufacturers, the 9000N oﬀers wireless playback over a Wi-Fi connection, not solely dependent on the albeit sometimes preferable wired /ethernet connection. This, along with the full album artwork and ESS9038Pro DAC chipset integration, represents several advanced features for the 9000N to boast.
Yet, it is also not limited to the audiolab 9000N app; the 9000N also oﬀers playback via Airplay II as well as Tidal Connect and Spotify Connect for those who prefer the proprietary streaming service app.
