I’m beginning to think the whole concept of streaming music from the internet across a network to computer devices is fraught with potential issues and maybe always will be. A good fallback plan is probably advisable and worthwhile.
My plan is Roon, Audirvana 3.5, and Apple Music streaming from Tidal, Qobuz, and Apple Music. I stream to RPi4, Oppo 203, iPhone, 2 iPads, and a Dell. I have unlimited AT&T U-Verse internet data and 135GB Verizon hotspot data plus unlimited premium network data.
Fortunately, this is not expensive since I have already paid for lifetime Roon and Audirvana 3.5 and Apple Music is free from Verizon with my cellular plan. I’m paying $120 for Tidal Masters (Best Buy) and $130 for Qobuz Studio. I dropped Netflix and premium movie channels to fund this.
Of course, 100,000 local tracks would be a good “fallback” to Roon also. I have 42 local tracks.
I’m also looking at buying a B-stock backkup Nucleus this fall.
EDIT: I forgot to mention I have a Roon Nucleus plus Roon software on my Dell laptop. I keep the laptop up to date and use it when away from home. Audirvana 3.5 is loaded on the same laptop. Apple Music is also, but I use IOS devices for Apple Music to get high resolution lossless.
EDIT: I also forget that we have a Sirius XM subscription for the car. I could use that on Apple TV 4K if necessary.
