Roon 1.8 (Build 748/756/763/764) Feedback

In 1.8, When browsing any Tidal Albums or under “New Releases for you”, you can no longer see whether the Album is Tidal Masters / MQA anymore… in fact you can’t see that information until you click into the album to find out what formats of that album is in whether it is Flac / MQA / AAC etc…

Only after it has been added to your library then you can see the album format information on display. It would be nice if there is a MQA badge or Format information to show in Tidal Album pages


MQA miss match. And MQA “resolution” has been removed from/under album cover. Not good.


This is really bad. Totally agree with you.



Well, it seems that the missing recommended albums and library discography concern I cited earlier must have been a temporary glitch as a result of the Roon servers being overloaded. Now, when I scroll down from the album track listing I see a Selected discography section followed by a Recommended albums section. Perfect!

There are always gitches on the release of any new software, but I have to say that Roon has exceeded my expectations with this one. The new UI may not initially please everyone, but give it time. Pretty sure it’ll grow on you.

These Android UI elements look like they have literally been thrown at the screen and fortunately I find it all looks a little amateurish compared to 1.7… which is a shame as I’m sure lots of people worked very hard on this release.

Overall very good. Performance much better. My only nit-pick is the font for the title of albums. Certainly a bold choice but my personal preference would be for something a little more subtle that draws less attention. But it is one of those things where you’ll never please everyone.

Is it 16 or 24 bit ?

4 posts were split to a new topic: Unable to Play Tidal After Upgrade to Version 1.8

I am getting the same error, roon radio is not working… says its limited to library.

Too long of a thread to see if others are getting it too.

It’s there in the iPad app. Settings > General > Customize album display > Edit.

The star rating from AllMusic is gone and can now only be seen when you click each album, which is tedious and a downgrade from the previous version. Is there a way to either bring the stars back, or (a better option)to be able to sort by AllMusic’s star rating? It is extremely helpful for figuring out where to begin with a new artist discovery.


I actually quite like the Android UI, just wish it could output audio properly on DAPs with a quality DAC rather than resampling everything and sending it through OpenSL

I mistakenly deleted my previous post. Roon Radio is also not working for me, I am getting an error saying its limited to library and nothing will play next (although a song is, in theory, there to play).

Overall the GUI looks good though, no issues there.

Roon. Please move.


I posted earlier with the same issue. Looks like it is a wider problem so I expect it will get addressed by Roon.

Oh, I was able to find a link to all tracks by artist in the artist page.

Same here…

They can move the que list button back to the big empty space where it once was too…
