until now I always used Roon only for the main speakers rig (endpoint on iOS, iPhone).
For headphone listening I always used Tidal app (iOS).
Yesterday for the first time I wanted to try (my purpose is to unsubscribe Tidal) my headphone setup with Roon so:
iPhone 8 Plus > Chord Mojo > Aeon Flow Open
For the test I didn’t use Tidal songs but just flac at 16-44 quality,
My impression are that Roon endpoint on iOS sounds very different than Tidal app on iOS.
The Roon endpoint sounded very bright, almost “harsh”, with a poor punch and a poor bottom end.
The Tidal app, instead, sound very balanced, punchy, with great bottom end, with a little roll off highs, very enjoyable.
I still have to to tests because I want to keep Roon as my final player so please, could someone tell me its impressions on sound timbre between Roon app and Tidal app?
