It would be great to be able to take the music away with us, via sync or via streaming, directly to mobile devices. Space is not an issue for us lucky Android users whom have Micro SD card capability and for the rest, there’s always streaming. I have a great little 24 bit DAC in my Sony Z5 that sounds quite good for a mobile. I came to Roon, specifically because Plex does not have 24 bit sync support and each time I raise it, they get all confused about what it is ultimately saying they already support it, which they clearly don’t. Of course, you then get the barrage of people who think that there is no difference between an MP3 and lossless music just making the whole thing quite painful. However, they have better support for mobile than Roon does at present.
I’ve looked and most people here seem to be talking about using mobiles over wifi in the same location as their server. The primary item I miss with Roon, is not being able to stream or sync music to my mobile device while at work or in the car / bus / train etc. I’ve heard this might be coming, however I can’t really find anything on here about it, so I thought I would create a request with a clear Topic.
I’ve considered setting up a VPN in the interim. I might just do this, though it doesn’t solve the problem for when you’re on a costly cellular data connection.
