The best iOS and macOS app for audiophiles and HiFi enthusiasts that use a player based on mpd, Volumio, Bryston or OpenHome. Take a look at some images that show the streamlined UI offered on various devices.
Players are automatically detected and you’re good to go in no time, whether it’s Volumio, moOde audio, Kodi, Bryston or a regular mpd based player. As of version 3.0, also supported are players based on OpenHome, through BubbleUPnP and upmpdcli.
When using BubbleUPnP or upmpdcli, Rigelian provides integrated access to both your local library, and the vast library offered by Qobuz (this requires a separate subscription to Qobuz).

One of the five apps I use every day
Really well done app for a great price. The author is very responsive to problems and suggestions. All apps should be this good!
Happy to pay a reasonable subscription It’s a simple & clean interface Only thing missing is a watch version.
Best mpd interface
I‘ve tried some alternatives to Rigelian but soon this was my favorit. Plays dsd, super fast internet radio connection, warm support. App for macos available. Useful gimmicks like lastfm information to your tracks showing similar tunes in your library.
Most mpd apps have lousy UI — not this one! Highly recommended.
Just simply the best mpd player
Very nice app, streaming is great, the only feature missed is the search by genre
Clean, functional, does its job perfectly
Best mpd controller I’ve came across. Others are stuffy and outright ugly. This one isn’t. Even the app icon is nice.
