While it probably won’t affect me so much, there are times when my internet can go down. I don’t want to find out that I can’t play my local music. Disabled all the search functions for streaming services. But allow the offline playback of local files please, without having to downgrade back to 1.8 (legacy).
Totally agree! I encountered internet outage a few times but was very happy that I could still access music library stored on home NAS using Roon to stream to my music room DAC… Now I have one less reason to keep my Roon subscription. I don’t need ARC, Plexamp works just fine if not better than ARC.
Good for you The feature I really would like Roon to add is for user to input custom notes/reviews for each album. The only two reasons for me now to keep Roon are 1) I like the user interface, and 2) the DSP functionality where I can take advantage of custom digital room correction service provided by Home Audio Fidelity.
I installed both Roon 2.0 and Roon 1.8 on my macbook air. I created a folder in /applications to contain roon 1.8 since the package names are identical. I can run one or the other without difficulty. Beyond that i cannot say. Note that changing the name of the app files does not change the name of the dock icon. I suspect that will carry over to Windows and other OSes.
You said you don’t know what 6 weeks means once you download the install files. SImple: the file you download is 12 bytes. not kilobytes or megabytes. Bytes. It is not an installer, it’s a configuration tag that tells the installer to use 1.8. Which apparently, they will remove. Why? Speculation land.
Now why can we not have proper, threaded replies to specific posts. I clicked reply at each post but that generated a bunch of posts at the end without context. Sigh.
Yes, the link is the Linux .SH file. However, you can get the direct download link just by opening that file and copy/pasting the download link directly. All the other OS links, as you can see in my pic, download the full installer.
So, my question is still valid. If I have the 1.8 Legacy Windows 64 installer, can I use it to re-install after the six weeks?
