Roon Client on macOS was hanging / crashing since a while. (Beach Ball)


  • Start Roon Client on your iPhone or iPad,
  • go to settings and go to services,
  • go to Qobuz and choose “Log Out”
  • start Roon client on macOS again,
  • now Roon starts correctly,
  • you can re-enable Qobuz again by logging in again with your credentials
  • close Roon Client and start it again on your Mac and now its starting again correctly
