I rather have access to use brand like icons than using rooms, dont get me wrong, rooms are useful… BUT I rather use the DAC icon than use rooms. I like the fact that my Mojo gets picked up as a Mojo. I would like to do the same for the rest of my DACs.
I think a zone should be as it is now an option to chose a location based image like a room…this is often a better option for others that might not know what a mojo or a lumin is…like my wife couldn’t care less what the equipment is as long as she can see it’s a bedroom and not a jacuzzi
That said just because you have a mojo doesn’t mean you should have all brand images under the sun to pick from in a zone…it’s either what it is or a generic icon for the space/locale it’s playing in
I am asking for a request, just like you are entitle to ask for your zones. Yes I want to have the ability to choose my icons base on my DAC’s brand that is my request.
Would they listen? Who knows?!? But at least I am putting it here.
That’s a lot of work for roon to create an icon for every brand of dac out there. Won’t hurt to ask but I would rather they fix bugs and add features on the roadmap. Maybe they can do a few propular brands that don’t have roon ready yet, but that lowers the bar for the brands to strive for contributions. Unless you are asking the brands to provide their artwork to roon…that might be possible or maybe an option to select your own artwork/image like you would with an album.
This is not a copyright problem, You are going about this the wrong way @Martin_Webster
What ever certification a USB program has to go to get an icon is understandable… But if you think about it… Is silly… If the USB device is supported on the OS, It works through Roon that’s the bottom line.
I am not going to argue here about what YOU and others think this should be or not… If it has legs or arms… This is a request and is up to roon to consider it.
Its obvious that others would like more device icons and or the ability to choose their own
If Roon is focusing on the future (Streaming Music) certification will fall between the cracks…
Is time to give the users a bit of freedom with device icons
Note: A Network DAC is more understandable as a device that indeed will require “certification”
