I took delivery of a new Rossini at the end of last month. Mine did not come with a remote, but as good as the app is I don’t think one will be necessary.

Thanks to the good service of our local audio shop. I had tested MSB reference/premier / PD MPT-8 + MPD-8 / MPS-8 / dCS Rossini Player on my home audio system and finally ordered Rossini Player.

I am still waiting for delivery. If my new Rossini does not supply with remote control I will buy Logitech HARMONY 650 as a substitution. Although APP is more functional but a physical remote control is easier for CD playing.

The original remote is huge, you can kill someone with it :-)
If you use the Rossini as a pre-amp the volume control on the remote is great, but for the rest the app works fine. (easier to compare filters)

One comment, when using the internal streamer, the SQ is fantastic, but when my Ipad goes to sleep, the connection is fully broken and the playlist stops running, and when opening up the Ipad, it has to reconnect to the Rossini. That works much better with the Aurender N10.

I don't care for the dCS app and use Roon all the time. Even though I like Roon a lot what I don't like is having to pick up the iPad (or laptop) to start/pause/mute when playing music if the phone rings or my wife is looking for me. When I owned the Rossini I left its remote on the small table next to my chair and could easily reach it when I wanted to pause or mute the music without evening picking it up. Unfortunately at time the only functions the remotes control on the Vivaldi (when you have no transport) is swapping filters and powering up and down.

When using Roon and not the app. Music keeps playing when the iPad goes to sleep. Actually the music keeps playing if you close the app on my laptop since core is on my sonicTransporter.

As I understand the new remote comes with the recently released Rossini transport. The new remote is much longer than older unit. I will let you know how it feels after it arrives on Wednesday.

Buddy. The Rossini player is a excellent unit. I am sure it is even better with the recent update.

Jim I installed the 2.0 update last Saturday and I was very pleased with the sound quality improvement.

I recently purchased some MQA CDs but unfortunately they are not recognized by Rossini Player. It seems Rossini player only play MQA through files. MQA CD will be played as regular 16/44.1 CD.

I am a bit disappointed about Rossini player's limited MQA function. Hope dCS will improve in future firmware update.
