I am trying out Roon for the next 2 months, at the moment with Tidal.
I am normally using a MacBook Pro late 2009 model with a external FireWire 1TB disk, running iTunes with Amarra, love the sound that Amarra gives me, for me it sound like the most analog of all the different software players on the market that I have tried, the audio signal then goes out with usb to a Primare Dac 30.
Using iTunes I always missed the liner notes and being able to see lyrics and the information that the cd disk inlet provided,
So when I came across Roon my interest was peaked.
After making my mind up about trying Roon, I decided to use a 2TB FireWire disk that I partition into 2 x 1 TB.
One for the iTunes library for using with Amarra and one for iTunes library using with Roon, I have told Roon to watch the iTunes folder on the Roon partition!
Here is my question.
Have I been overly cautious in making 2 libraries ?
Also, as I now that want to import more music, will I need to import 2 times with iTunes to each library ?
I really like the way iTunes import the music, be it from cd or HDTracks.com, but I am feeling like I am doing things too complicated.
Maybe some of you guys that have used Roon for a while with iTunes knows a better and easier way ?
I hope you all understand my writing, as I am not a native in English
