Sounds good, but odd bugs and a clunky interface.
The audio customizing is great and I'm impressed with the overall quality of sound. But for some reason, the thing seems to like to play and skip tracks on its own. Dunno why but they gotta fix that because it's annoying. Also, the interface is very un-iOS-like. They could pull in some design cues from more polished and seasoned apps. Seems like it's designed by engineers, not by designers. For instance, there's inconsistent placement of the transport controls. Sometimes they're on the top, sometimes on the bottom. And the big POWERED BY BBE logo/button is completely unnecessary and just uses up valuable interface space - I don't need a link to your website!! And I'd like the time-slider to be bigger/longer. What if they enlarged/extended it, put that on the lower part of that frame (ditching the BBE logo) and moved the shuffle/loop/volume buttons above?? Right? Seems obvious to me. There's just a million ways to make this app LOOK as good as it sounds. Oh, one more thing… I haven't figured out yet how to customize the name of my custom settings. Again - sounds great, but has its annoyances.

Does what it says it can do!
I'm hardly and audiophine guy, but I know my music very well. I've always just figured that the Ipod and other like devices just couldn't deliver the level of quality that a good stereo system could. I'd seen a number of ads for this and I figured I'd give it a try. It's simple to use and it very much improved the sound of my music through the various things I plug it it into. It's really as simple as that. I will say that if you have low quality digital copies of your music (ripped at a low quality setting), the program will do it's best, but you can't have high expectations for that sort of thing. If you start with a good quality recording, the Sonic Max will help to bring out the definition that is somethimes lost on iPod devices.

Nice sound effects
Nice app for audiophiles. Would be great if I could play my downloaded podcasts on this app. Other than that it's a great app but over priced for me!

Best sound of my apps, player good
Amazing sound, player is adequate. Lots of good ideas for player interface in the comments. Sound alone is worth the money.

Awesome
This makes a huge difference in sound quality... Almost as good as having an external Amp! Also doesn't kill the battery like some other similar apps.
