I really don’t understand some people who post on this and some other threads in the Roon forum.
You are perfectly entitled to switch to another music streaming service whenever you want, but It’s almost as if some posters take great delight in the possibility that the appearance of Apple lossless could mean the demise of Roon and its external streaming partners. It is becoming a little like the so called ‘debate’ around MQA where individuals with grievances team up to actively encourage others in the forum to abandon Tidal simply because they have dared to use MQA.
Please remember that most Roon users are not of the same opinion as you. The majority of us are very happy with Roon and would be devastated if the demise of Tidal and Qobuz were to mean that Roon loses access to its external streaming service partners.
Most of us don’t recognize or understand comments like:
“Roon gives me …, lots of headache with low quality software at a fairly high price”.
"Yes. This is the WTF how is this not addressed yet bit for me. A complete and total clusterfck".*
You imply that everyone who uses Roon feels the same way you do and has the same issues that you have.
However, for most of us, Roon most certainly cannot be dismissed as “low quality software”. Roon has transformed our listening experiences and music discovery dramatically for the better.
Roon runs absolutely flawlessly on all of my home systems with no issues whatsoever. By all means report issues that you are having and ultimately make your decision to move to Apple or any other streaming service. That is absolutely your right, but please let the rest of us continue to use and enjoy Roon.
