Full disclosure, I’m not going to take the time to search out whether there is such a dedicated topic herein but rather want to send a simple heartfelt thank you to the ROON team for your efforts on a tremendous product.
I’ve played with ROON going back 3 years and since it’s official roll-out, always felt it would be an eventual product for me and/or my clients. I finally bought a year subscription last Dec. but even then only dabbled with its capabilities until this summer while building a music library for a client.
Most recently, I had the client’s friend call about securing his own turn-key ROON server. I decided a few weeks ago to test the SGC sonicTransporter i5 + UltraRendu. After working with Andrew, I pulled a pkg in and loaded up our near 700 CDs and my Tidal account.
It goes without saying but having the music library always on & available while freeing up a multipurpose PC is invaluable, not withstanding the improvements in AQ with this particular pkg.
So this morning, as another overall test, I (hesitantly) decided to demo ROON to my wife who could care less about “music server software”. Matter of fact, she didn’t even want to be troubled with downloading an app. Nonetheless I told her to download & open an app called ROON on her iPad Pro (BTW, I don’t care for Apple anything) and asked her to call me down after she had it, which she did. I then easily found our ST i5 on our network, selected her iPad as her zone, and immediately we/she was playing around with our closet full of 25+ yr old music CDs (again near 700) + available Tidal albums + ability to easily add a song and/or album.
Her smile was worth the investment.
So, just a simple note of thanks this Sunday to everyone involved in ROON’s tireless, no doubt, efforts and current product end result. Well done.
