Editors' Review

+

Airfoil for Mac is an innovative audio management application that quickly streams audio from your Mac to AirPort devices including TVs and computers. Aside from some synchronization issues, Airfoil offers an entirely unique experience.

Pros

Great interface: This program hosts an attractive and uncomplicated interface that makes it easy to find audio and Airport devices. The Airfoil Video Player is well-built and offers you an excellent drag-and-drop feature as well as the ability to search online for videos from within the program.

Audio management tools: You are sure to love the equalizer and other audio control tools contained within Airfoil. These come with many options including presets like Acoustic or Jazz, and we were impressed that audio volume for individual devices could also be managed with this program.

Supports many sources: The best feature offered by Airfoil for Mac is its ability to connect multiple audio sources with your Airport Express. This is revolutionary because it allows you to not only share audio with Mac products, but also with other devices, like Windows computer, that have the Airfoil speaker software installed.

Cons

Playback issues: We experienced audio delay on a few rare occasions, and although these were small errors, the time it takes to properly synchronize audio and video will heavily detract from your enjoyment of Airfoil.

Bottom Line

The features offered by Airfoil for Mac are matchless, and once you get through any performance issues, you will be very satisfied with this program. Anyone who listens to music throughout the house or occasionally hosts guests will find Airfoil for Mac useful.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Airfoil for Mac 4.8.8.
