“Most of today’s payback solutions and streaming services ignore the unique characteristics of classical music, and you therefore cannot experience its full potential,” says Michael Li, CEO and Co-Founder of Nativ, “IDAGIO truly understands classical music and allows users to enjoy the genre in a way it has never been possible before. The Vita’s enormous touchscreen interface and audiophile hardware design take this experience to another level.”
Christoph Lange, Co-founder and CPO of IDAGIO adds: “An essential part of our mission at IDAGIO is to allow people from around the world to listen to classical music anytime, anywhere. That is why we are happy to work with Nativ on this integration, which allows Nativ users to enjoy 2 million classical music tracks in stunning lossless sound quality.”
Founded in 2015 in Berlin, Germany, IDAGIO is an ingenious streaming service which addresses the special characteristics of classical music. The service was designed with classical music lovers in mind and its features reflects this. For example, its innovative Mood Player helps users find the best music to suit their day, even if they aren’t sure what exactly they’d like to listen to. The catalog provides tailored search options for classical music; users can choose to search using filters such as orchestra, soloist, composer, conductor, and composition. Playlists are curated by acclaimed artists and critics which provide users with an easy way to experience new works and broaden their existing library.
Nativ Vita™ is the world’s first high-resolution music player with a built-in 11.6” touchscreen and pioneering user interface to conveniently access all of today’s music. Its proprietary metadata handling allows users to categorize, browse and combine all music genres independently. Classical music is enhanced with special metadata fields such as Composer, Conductor, Performer, Instrument, Publisher/Label and Orchestra/Ensemble. In addition to IDAGIO, users of the Nativ Vita™ can enjoy popular streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify or Tidal directly from the built-in LCD, and stream stunning music videos to a TV via HDMI or wirelessly with Google Cast. The Vita™ also supports Apple Airplay, Spotify Connect, Google Cast and Bluetooth aptX® for seamless integration of your mobile devices, and plays music from your Mac, PC or NAS through its ultra-fast wireless and Gigabit networking technology. Network music libraries can also be navigated with the pre-installed music interface from Roon™.
