I would very much like my Roon instance to be able to perform without Internet connectivity.
That would mean some or all of these;
Ability to start a Core without requesting online info about other uses of the account.
Ability to perform a search of a library data without delay, whether online connected or not. (Option to search locally BEFORE performing search)
Why then? Well, because sometimes i like to bring a ROCK server along to my mobile home and listen to music on the current location, rarely online access.
Search function is a nuisance these days, a wait time of more than a second is two seconds too long…
