This option is available as of 7.2.0 release.

Here's latest WIP release notes.

An option has been added to turn off the Now-playing (EQ bars animation) icon. This is mainly to avoid slight increase in CPU utilization in chromium-browser for Local display.

Great !  (more appreciated here for the removal of their distraction than CPU utilisation... but... whatever the symptom its a cure that's welcome  Smile )

@fdealexa made the case that it marginally increased CPU utilization on Local display which is already a performance challenged environment so credit where credit is due :-)

How do you not like the EQ bars ;-)

Well......The timer worm shows the track is playing Smile ...the currently playing track is colour highlighted in the playlist Smile 

so the 'bouncy castle' seems superfluous....  and I find anything that flashes distracting...but that is just me and not having owned or used a television for 30+ years now and using ad blockers everywhere I have a very smooth and "book-like" window to the world....;-) (I'll turn the page when I'm damn well ready !....lol...)

Hi Tim, 
Thanks for the credit: I appreciated it but it was not due.  Wink 
I have increased the CPU performances more than 10% in one of the moode systems that I use as server for DAB radio, FM radio and DVB-T radio and to listen music too, so the CPU load is critical.
Thanks again and best regards,
Francesco
