As my new Rossini DAC burns in, I am amazed at how it sounds in my system. Due to the COVID pandemic I had to buy it without ever auditioning, as there is no local dealer and travel restrictions prevented me to travel elsewhere in Canada to listen before I purchased.
However, I am definitely finding Mosaic control is challenging to mainly control my Tidal HiFi account. Not infrequently the app loses connection with the DAC. If I am playing an album and want to search Tidal for something else, often it is very challenging getting the search to work. Hitting search doesn’t often work and I need to go through multiple steps and sometimes quit app and re-enter to change the album or do a search. As others have noted, changing the volume is sometimes challenging. Sometimes when I try to slide the volume control the screen starts flashing different bright colours and nothing happens to the volume. If it does work, it is hard to do fine control changes. All of this is a bit unexpected given the cost of the unit. Certainly using other control software on my phone has been a lot smoother in the past (including Lightning DS; Audirvana & Roon) in terms of integrating with Tidal. Praying that dCS eventually offers Tidal Connect or alternatively, does a major fix on Mosaic control. Thanks.
