Will Roon be adding support for storing Tidal albums for offline playback?
I live with a 5mbps internet connection (nothing faster available) and regular Tidal streaming is spotty, with MQA coming I would REALLY like the ability to save Tidal albums and tracks so I don’t have to stream them constantly.
It’s available in the Tidal mobile app, so Tidal supports it, and I really think it would be a nice feature to add to Roon.
Make Tidal $1,000,000 profit by allowing us to store offline, secured files. Then Roon looks first for local file. Of course they only play with legit subscription but we all can stop repeatedly downloading the same file over and over. ROON can partner with Tidal to be official playback tool and they save millions in bandwidth and streaming costs.
It could cut Tidal server demands in 1/2.
Downloading the same files over and over is basically the worst data processing plan ever invented. Local store…keep same security model as mobile downloads. And BOOM problem solved, money saved, and ROON becomes even more famous and rich.
Remember they already allow on Mobile. Desktop is absolutely no different… So lets rock this.
