We have a streaming amplifier from Bluesound (the powernode edge). Their iOS app is pretty mediocre, but it got one feature that’s as simple as it is delightful: Plus and minus buttons to adjust the volume, in addition to the usual slider. It’s such a boon on touch devices. The relevant part of the slider is just hidden behind my thumb when I use it. That leads to a lot of fiddling and listening. They could improve it even more by showing me a volume number. I don’t even care whether the scale makes sense or not. But this way I’d have a way to get back to previous value without guessing and listening. Anyway, neither Denon nor Sonos got those lovely buttons, props to Bluesound.
