Roon 1.6 sees Roon Radio discovering a lot more music for us. This thread is to share your favourite discoveries through Roon Radio and your favourite “seed” music.
It’s not all great.
One of my first tests, I was listening to something in my usual avant-garde fare, hit Radio, Roon plaintively said “I can’t find anything like that” and then played sone heavy metal.
I am enjoying it for just playing good songs from albums I have heard before and mostly own (although the version may from Tidal) as opposed to shuffle and old radio which played a 30 second spoken song intro and switched to next selection.
While I have the albums there are still new or forgotten discoveries.
When I seed something less popular or recent I do get sent into unknown territory. I started with Beck “sea changes” in 5.1 and then radio played modern rock bands I was not familiar with. I need more exploration to discover gems.
Well stop trying to be so clever and play some Barry Manilow
Mebbe some Kenny G…
I can feel a new Music thread coming on: “MOR and Easy Listening for Anders”. Maybe Qobuz has Richard Clayderman in 192kHz.
I wonder if roon support could helpfully modify his radio algorithm. I hear South American nose flutes playing Kenny G is a great combo.
Sounds avant-gahhhhhh …
Opening my eyes to new things!
Closing my ears, though…
Some Nouvelle Chanson from Qobuz.
I kicked off with “2. Nehemie d’Akkade”. Quite an eye opener. I’m no expert. Probably needs a bit of training (not to turn everything into English )
Some nice Alternative/Indie from the seed: Eels — In My Younger Days
