STREAMING FROM THE INTERNET WITH THE MAN301

Oc­ca­sion­ally, we get in­quiries from MAN301 users about how to play those stream­ing web­sites (like Tidal, Spo­tify, QoBuz etc.) via the MAN301.This can be eas­ily done via the Air­play fea­ture of the MAN301. With the icon in the lower right cor­ner on the iPad the menu for se­lect­ing the Air­play mode is shown.

MAN301-Input-Mode

Af­ter se­lect­ing the Air­play mode, tell the iPad to play au­dio to the MAN301. This is done by swip­ing from the lower edge of the iPad up­wards, which opens a menu where the MAN301 de­vice can be se­lected for Airplay.

Now open the ap­pli­ca­tion of the stream­ing ser­vice you like to play and start play­ing tracks. The tracks now play via the MAN301. The vol­ume can be con­trolled via the but­tons at the iPad.

The Air­play streams in 44.1 kHz /16 Bit for­mat, which is per­fect for the stream­ing sites. The user in­ter­faces of the var­i­ous stream­ing sites are main­tained with this scheme, which is a very nice fea­ture, con­sid­ered that the stream­ing sites keep up­dat­ing their user in­ter­faces. In ad­di­tion all stream­ing sites are sup­ported automatically.

In that man­ner all au­dio played on the iPad can be redi­rected to the MAN301.
E.g. you can also play from Youtube or from your lo­cal mu­sic col­lec­tion on the iPad.
Of course all Air­play ca­pa­ble de­vices can use the MAN301 for play­back in that manner.
