Basically a rookie if you will when it comes to these genres. Primephonic has allowed me to broaden my horizons, enjoying new music each time I sign in as well as my ‘limited’ scope of favorites. The sound is really, really nice for digital streaming. I’m no audiophile; however, the lossless streaming options deliver solid lows and highs and everything in between.
This is without question the best music streaming service. I had looked at two others. They were more expensive and had much less choice I recommend Primephonic to anyone who asks - which isn’t my usual style, but is definitely called for here. Also tech support is very helpful and pertinent.
This app is amazing, the only downside is just not having a desktop version, yes i can use the web player but that isn’t as convenient, since this is a web app, electron API should do the trick to natively make it available from all of the 3 major platforms,
I am a recovering stroke victim. I found this app a year after my stroke. I believe the music has helped me in some way and it is a great joy to hear such varied compositions!
Under “my music” you used to have an entire list of saved composers. Now it shows about 10 and there’s no link to the rest. The entire point of having a music library is having access to saved things. This update ruined that; you still have access to saved artists and works, but no saved composers. I unsubscribed to both Apple Music and Spotify because they would drop saved items. A library is completely pointless is you don’t have access to your bookmarked artists, composers, works, albums, etc. I have far too many obscure composers in my list to lose. Get it together Primephonic this update basically destroyed your app and rendered you completely worthless.
Came from Spotify — was sick of how poor their layout was for classical music. This is 100X better. I like the hi-res option, although I hope that the next update shows which albums are hi-res and which aren’t. With the 25% off coupon it is definitely a fair price. Definitely will be sticking with this for now.
First off, let me say that the indexing and library available via Primephonic is wonderful – so wonderful that we paid for a year’s subscription – something we are now trying to get refunded. Tragically, that amazing library is almost unusable on Sonos, which is really the only way we’ll ever use Primephonic. While Sonos/Primephonic occasionally does work, more often than not the music will stutter and eventually freeze. Working with tech support over the course of a few weeks was not particularly helpful - they ultimately told me that because of the ‘high quality of the Primephonic music data’ Sonos was unable to handle playing it. I do not think this is true, as we a)have incredible high wireless speed and throughput in our house which never drops out and b)We stream uncompressed music from all other Sonos sources, including CD quality FLAC files from my computer. Perhaps if your intent is to listen to Primephonic’s offerings only on your phone, this would be a wise subscription. But not if you ever intend to play it in your home.
I love the concept of this service, and I think it has a lot of potential. It’s engaging and well-curated, with accurate metadata and great sound quality. My main issue is that the app seems to crash pretty frequently, and there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. When it does crash, the audio playback is replaced by a loud and jarring static noise, which ruins the experience for me. If you could fix the static issue, the app would be absolutely fantastic, but as it stands the functionality seems to be a bit unpredictable, so I continue to use the app sparingly.
