Sure James at a significant additional cost. I’m already $7k plus with the Innuos MKII>TBxUltra>Uptone 1.2>Lush & Triode Wirelabs Cables. Not looking to double that
Especially when this can be done with software for a much lower cost and Innuos (and others) are doing it with the LMS player. However with the closed Roon ecosystem they cannot access the system to make the changes required. Innuos server owners need Roon to open this up or execute it themselves.
I spend way more time on the LMS side even though I’m a lifetime Roon user because it sounds “significantly” better but pales in comparison to Roon in usability
This thread has gotten so long that I may be repeating previous requests, but these just occurred to me.
Search by album title is not robust; searches seem to prioritize band/musician names.
My biggest complaint about Roon: The main value proposition is the “rich” experience–artist connections, bios, descriptions, rich metadata. But, while it may be better than other available products–I don’t know–it’s not as good as it needs to be. Too many albums and artists in my collection (and many from Tidal) are “identified” but have no descriptions; I’d say roughly half of the albums I listen to have no info. Plus, Roon sometimes fails to discriminate among various versions of a work, providing correct information for each, so (e.g.) the mastering engineer may be listed incorrectly. I’m sure this is because no sufficiently accurate and rich online information source is available–but whatever the reason, the problem needs to be solved for Roon to achieve its full potential.
Yes, I agree; always create a track / performance relationship when there is a track composer tag, or the composer is added manually to track credits.
This topic has quite a few threads within the community, with lots of ideas/suggestions, I din’t think many of these would be possible unless the basic change to the rules for creation of track / performance relationships is implemented.
I rarely listen to classical music in my collection so I’m not in a position to make a valid comment.
I have inconsistent results and sometime what you say is true and is the way it should work, but not always. There are instances where Roon metadata provides a track composer but no track/performance relationship has been created. If I manually add a composer, still no track/performance relationship created. For example after searching for Doris Troy I get:-
It can be done easily with a little tinkering:
I have my music on a syno nas, and the roon backups are stored in a shared folder on it too. I’ve made a tiny shell script that recursively zips the backup and stores it in a folder that’s synced offsite. I also added it as a cron job using Task Scheduler on the syno to make it run twice a week.
The same can easily be done with a batch file if you’re running windows
Roon Mobile with Tidal integration and ability to sync tags, playlists and bookmarks between mobile and desktop versions, the app would also access, index and play files stored on the devices for offline playback.
