SEEK App (iOS) Note: Android information at the bottom
The Seek iOS App allows you to stream music to your networked Bel Canto Black system, playlist management over servers, create playlists, play MQA, DSD, PCM formats and gives you system volume control all from your iOS smart phone or tablet.
Bel Canto’s Asynchronous Multi input Platform (AMiP) in the Black Series connects (Ethernet and USB-A) to your home Network to stream music using the SEEK App to play from subscription accounts, TIDAL (MQA) Qobuz or becomes a server with a large drive attached to the USB-A eliminating the need for a computer in your system. Control your music with SEEK on your iOS device.
SEEK is about discovering and managing your music easily, something we see as the ultimate pleasure in musical playback. Making the connection to your home network is straight forward and requires only a connection to your router and downloading the APP to your iOS device. Currently SEEK only works with an iOS device.
After downloading, you can use the below guide to use the app:
- Network interface device setup and firmware update for renderer
- Device information
- Timeline and repeat, shuffle options
- Master volume
- Micro-volume toggle
- Main menu options
- Refresh network connection
- Available network devices
- Connected device
- Access and control files connected to USB-A
NOTE: If you’re an Android user, there are various UPnP/DLNA apps that you can use for controlling the renderer including TIDAL streaming. Mconnect control will give you the same user experience and features as Bel Canto’s SEEK. Mconnect control is needed if there are software-based renderer updates through the Device Setup menu of the app. For another app option, BubbleUPnP will also work as well.
