Great job on the redesign of the app. The interface is cutting edge visually and very intuitive. It also displays very well on my 7 inch tablet. However, there is one significant issue with the new version I've noticed. This issue is sound quality.
I used the previous version for quite a long time along side TuneIn Radio Pro and the sound quality between the two apps was identical. I liked using XiiaLive as opposed to TuneIn because of the freedom in managing favorites and tags along with simple info about what's playing (no large album art or station logos).
In comparing the XiiaLive 3.0 with TuneIn, the sound delivered from XiiaLive sounds noticably more shallow especially when there's a lot going on the music (i.e. layered electric guitars, electronica with heavy bass, etc). TuneIn, in comparison delivers a more full and complete sound. I'm guessing this might be due to the XiiaLive's new sound engine with the equalizer and various effects. I've tried turning the equalizer off and on in addition to the various equalizer settings and although the sound does change, I'm still left with the impression that the sound engine is just not delivering the rich sound delivered by the previous version.
I would suggest fine tuning XiiaLive's sound delivered with the equalizer off so that it's identical to the previous version. Then, of course, users could still customize the sound to their liking by turning on the equalizer and adjusting it accordingly. I've been a big fan of XiiaLive, but sound quality is the #1 factor in my use of an app of this nature. So, in summary, kudos for the new interface, but bring back the great sound quality!
