Description Of Issue
Incessant stutter. Playing thru Bluesound Node.
I do not play thru this often. 1x maybe 2x month.
I live in the mountains and power goes out often, so we reboot a ton. I do not need to be told to reboot. It happens 5 or 6 times a week whether we want it to or not.
All of a sudden, as in tonight for the first time ever, playing thru the system described above is stu stu stu stuttering. Playing thru an iPad, iPhone, Sonos Move, all good.
Just thru Bluesound Node. Yes. I rebooted
Frankly I’m getting really tired of Roon’s selective crap. It sucks that this week output A works great, but if I don’t use it for a month, I cannot rely on it working again. I NEVER KNOW if it’s going to work from one week to the next. My family is pretty sure that I’ve been fleeced by Roon scammers. Glad I didn’t buy a lifetime.
Sonos is way more reliable, even if it doesn’t have as many bells and whistles. I will gladly take reliable over fancy any day.
But I really hope I’m wrong because I love the concept of Roon, even if the current incarnation totally sucks. Because it does.
Get it folks? I have Sonos. It’s better than your product. I will gladly sell all my Roon crap of it cannot be made to work reliably.
Ok, so I’m done whining.
