Ah… Here’s what I did: I annotate the album title with the physical media in parenthesis, as well as version information in brackets.
For example: My copy of Steven Wilson’s re-mastered/re-mixed version of Yes - Close To The Edge on Blu-ray has an album title that look like:
Close To The Edge [2015 Steven Wilson] (BD)
In Roon, you see the album title thumbnail with title as “Close To The Edge” and 2015 Steven Wilson, BD underneath. In the grid view, you will see the above super-imposed in the corner of the thumbnail image.
Try it: annotate one album that is your recently added list and see what it looks like - I love the way it’s presented.
And, of course, it’s easy to search for collections by using a common format for media. Here’s my taxonomy:
Mastering or Bonus Tracks Album Post-fix
[20XX Engineer] | [20XX Remastered] | [Bonus Tracks] | [Bonus Videos] | [Deluxe Edition] | [Flat Transfer] | [Live]
Physical Format Album Post-fix and Comments
Blu-Ray, Pure Audio
Blu-spec CD 2
DVD Video, Surround
(SACD), (Living Stereo)
SACD, Hybrid, Surround
… the acronyms below the () items I add to the Comments tag, so I can recall what I have that has surround and/or DSD tracks for playback on my home theater system.
