If you are an iMac or MacBook or Mac Tower user and like iTunes but have been wondering what you might do to get better sound out of it, or how to support hi-res formats that iTunes does not, check this out.
Amarra – The Purist Music Player
From Sonic Studio, Amarra is a software app that can install and link to iTunes on a Mac OS X computer. By link to iTunes I mean Amarra will run along with iTunes and take over the playback of your audio tracks whenever it can (which is most of the time). You can also create playlists in Amarra itself and run it without iTunes.
What you hear as a result is a much better quality playback than what you are used to hearing because the audio engine (for playback) used by Amarra is far superior to iTunes.
It’s that simple even though 20 some years have elapsed since Sonic Studio’s technology started being used for professional mastering and playback in major studios for CDs and films.
You can get the benefit of their hard work boiled down to a very simple and spiffy app called Amarra. Here’s how they describe it:
Deep, analog, natural, and musical; these are words we hear our customers use when describing their Amarra listening experiences.
With Amarra, you’ll have many “OH WOW!” moments even with tracks you’ve listened to for years. That’s because Amarra enables your music to sound the way it was intended to be heard – beautifully.
If you’re looking for the best sound, try Amarra in your system.

I like good sounding music and here is as much a no-brainer to that end as I’ve ever heard. I also have tens of thousands of songs in iTunes which I’ve been hearing for a long time… Amarra gave them all a new life for my ears without having to do more than install it.
