I’ve been lurking on the form for a while thinking about when to pull the plug on my LMS 7.9 server. I was going to hold off until the iPhone app, RoonSpeakers and Roon certified endpoints were released, but after rebuild on my media server with Windows 10-1511 over the weekend I’m now a fully paid up Roon subscriber.
I have a number of questions/comments,the first relates to lyrics. I have about 40,000 tracks in FLAC, and every track with words has the correct lyrics embedded in the lyrics id-tag. This worked great with LMS and iPeng. I know Roon would have saved me some time as it finds lyrics for many tracks, but when it fails to find lyrics it gives up. I believe that it should look at the id-tag of the file and use the embedded lyrics in this case. There is a strong argument for saying that it should always use the embedded lyrics and only search externally if there are no lyrics embedded.
Here is an example from a recent Mark Knopfler album
And here are the lyrics metadata embedded in the FLAC file
