There was a thread on this which got closed (not sure why) and there seemed to quite a few people who would like to see this possible. Yes soundcloud (and/or mixcloud) are not about lossless high quality audio, but that is not the point. There is a lot of great music on there and it is served in a different way - mixes and dj sets instead of albums and EP’s, incredibly fun to listen to. Having access to both within Roon would be perfect. Many of us, like myself, have headless roon end points throughout the house (not a PC with a mouse and a monitor) and we want to listen to soundcloud and mixcloud streams from within Roon via the same control apps on laptops and handhelds.
Enabling this in the software would be a massive upgrade for Roon. Perhaps now that internet radio has been enabled it is easier to implement? It is essentially the same however instead of copy/pasting a AAC/MP3 link we could paste the soundcloud link? Better yet would be integrated soundcloud and mixcloud searching.
