Pi­o­neer Re­mote App

Sound+Image - - Test -

Pi­o­neer’s Re­mote App proved in­tu­itive and re­li­able. It splits its abil­i­ties into three sen­si­ble sec­tions: ‘In­put’ for se­lect­ing phys­i­cal sock­ets, ‘Net’ for all the avail­able stream­ing ser­vices and mul­ti­room plat­forms, and ‘Chrome­cast’ which lists var­i­ous Cast-en­abled apps you can stream to the PI­o­neer. As noted in the text, it did not seem pos­si­ble to link the built-in Chrome­cast here to a spe­cific Google ac­count and thereby ad­dress it via voice us­ing Google As­sis­tant.

The ‘Mu­sic Server’ op­tion ac­cesses UPnP/DLNA shares, nav­i­gat­ing in the usual way though with­out an al­pha­bet­i­cal jump list, mak­ing long lists a fair old scroll, though there’s no pause to ‘re­fill’ while you do so.
