Audiophile Baroque Station Causes Roon To Crash

ANyone else having issues playing this station? It closes Roon once it starts to play. I have tried two of three of their stream recommendations, but each closes Roon.

This is one of the streams I am trying:

Tried it, and indeed, very strange, Roon application closes.

Maybe @support can jump in?

I tried using the following:

The stream plays and keeps playing, but the local client closes and cannot re-open. I get a white screen with a big red X and then it closes again. I can stop the stream via stopping RoonServer. Restarting the server clears up the error and I can log in the remote.

With your link I’ll get the same response as with the other link: Roon shuts down completely. (Win 10) But it’s not my problem. Only trying to help t.s.

Hello @dshore,

Thanks for the report, I can reproduce your findings and have filed a ticket with QA to take a closer look at this behavior.

I have also had Roon iPad app v1.6.00390 spontaneously crash on startup – and I have been able to replicate (one set of) conditions which cause it to do so. Once it has crashed, it continues to do the same until the app is removed and reinstalled, or circumstances are changed (see below).

I have also managed to get the Mac app (v1.6 build 390) to crash under the same circumstances. This, also, continues to crash until I can change the circumstances.

Luckily, the iPhone app is resilient to this particular bug, so I was able to wrest control back!

The problem occurs when I select a radio station called “Audiophile Baroque” under Internet Radio. The website is and the stream URL is .

A moment after selecting this station, the app crashes. On restarting the app it immediately crashes again. The Mac app crashed as soon as I selected the room that had that source. The only way to get back control was to go on the iPhone app and change that room to play a different source.

I do not think this is endpoint (player) related: I have replicated this on a Lumin D1 and a Linn Klimax DS. Roon Core is ROCK version 1.6 build 390; Roon OS version 1.0 build 159.

Hello @anonymouse,

Thanks for your report, please see the above posts for more information. We are aware of this issue and the dev team is working on it, a fix will be published in our next Roon App update.


Thanks for moving my message - I hadn’t spotted this thread. Will look forward to a forthcoming fix.
