I really don’t understand some people who post on this and some other threads in the Roon forum

Since adopting roon + Qobuz I have not once gone to spotify or apple or amazon for music.
I haven’t fired up foobar2000 or clementine and vlc is relegated to video again.
The search feature is awful, I think that has been made thunderously apparent. I can not see why I would need to go back.

How in the world did this thread dissolve into a debate over acronyms and abbreviations for the last 30 posts give or take BTW?

This is why it is a forum for people to vent their frustration and voice their opinion. That’s what they call a democracy every person is entitled to his or her opinion “freedom of speech”.
My opinion is also not to break everything down if it is not my opinion, but to listen and work with it to come to a solution.

I totally get that! You are not the only one who believes in democracy!

However, if you read my original post in full, you may gather that my statement was written about a specific group of people whom I felt were more or less actively encouraging people in multiple and repeated posts to move from Roon to alternative streaming solutions which are not and probably never will be compatible with Roon. I have no quarrel whatsoever with free speech (within limits of course given the amount of political misinformation and ludicrous malicious conspiracy theories sweeping the Internet nowadays). I was simply expressing my concern and surprise about the nature of some of the posts in a specific thread.

Of course, you won’t be aware of this but I should also add that although my post is the first in this thread, I did not actually create the thread. I posted my comments in a completely different thread in response to a number of specific posts in that thread. The forum administrators chose to close that specific thread and start a couple of new threads. This thread “I really don’t understand some people who post …” was created by the forum administrators using my post. I guess my post could possibly be taken out of context without the reference of the original posts to which I was responding!

How is Tidal “worse”? You have zero context to support “worse”. Perhaps you were eluding to your penmanship. You are welcome to dislike Tidal, I certainly could care less either way. However, if you are going to offer a valid point -add some validity.

Thanks for the sensible post - I too am a happy Roon/Tidal member. Nothing negative to post.

Roon, Tidal, and Qobuz all three work for me. Apple Music does also, but for a different use case.

Worried about Roon’s future? Interesting. If and when a music streaming such as Tidal no longer exists why are you concerned Roon couldn’t pivot to a new service. They are a software company. If you are proposing they add the likes of Apple, Amazon, and Spotify then that is entirely different proposition than the concern of their current business model. Have you considered the possibility Roon has had these same considerations especially since it could increase membership? I personally think the decision makers behind Roon are far more intelligent than my hyperbole.

Forums can be very helpful, sometimes interesting, but they can also be (I say they mostly are) tedious, very petty, boring and a waste of time.
