I just went to do it and found out I am 1 day out of the 30 day cutoff which I either didn’t see or forgot/
Sorry, paying $819 is a rip off. I am not paying it. I shall stick with this years sub and then consider whether I like it enough to pay the sub.
I was quite willing to pay the price with my years sub taken off but as I said either I was not made aware of that sufficiently or I forgot. Either way, I am 1 day over and that cost me $120.
At this rate it is just paying 7 years sub upfront and no doubt the goal posts will just be moved and moved. If they are concerned about income, perhaps they need to think on the exorbitant fees.
As it is I don’t use their sound, I use HQPlayer. Yes it’s nice to read the bumf and to find new artists more easily but I found very man y new artists on my own long before I heard of Roon.
This has left a rather sour taste in my mouth. No, I think this will be the only year I sub. I am old and sick paying 7 years rent in advance? What guarantee that a lifetime sub won’t be put up when they decide to charge for updates?
I already have a serious Roon issue-it refusing to play files that are normal healthy files.
I am glad I wrote what I wrote and I am still glad of the help some have been kind enough to give but I can’t justify buying this.
Yes, I am well aware that if I changed my mind and continued to yearly sub, there is no guarantee the price will not rise. I am certain it will go up, And up. And up. Until they fail through lack of people willing to pay. That would be a shame as it is a brilliant program.
By the way, the $820 is 670 sterling. Add £200 to that and I could buy another new 8300cdq.
I have to say that the tone of the replays, though I am sure not meant, was a threat-buy now or be sorry as your ability to pay is going to be taken away, tomorrow or later.
I know it wasn’t meant as a threat but I felt it as such and now just feel thoroughly p’d off that I am expected to pay the full price for Roon because I was unaware, for whatever reason, most likely down to my brain injury. I can lose May 14 to Sept 20, I can lose what I read 31 days ago.
Not even that p’s me off as the lack of trust I have for the people behind this program now. They know that people will forget about the 30 day thing. They send no reminders. They know we will be so wrapped up in learning the program there is an excellent chance a normal brained person will forget.
No doubt this will elicit snotty responses. It’s a waste of time, yours, not mine. I have had snotty responses just for not understanding how Roon works which I didn’t respond to and the rubbish sent in response to my avr use which is why I stopped reading that thread.
There really is no need for such unpleasantness. Yes, it is clear I have written in such a way as to make it clear I am annoyed to say the least. In fact I feel cheated and it makes no difference if my brain injury is the reason I wasn’t aware of the 30 day deadline for having the years sub refunded off the main price. It’s a rip off, not good business, and a trust breaker.
I make no personal attack on anyone. I am p’d off with the company behind Roon. I am well aware they are people but I’d still tell them that I think their business practice is bad. Not that they are bad. There is a difference but experience tells me this will still be seen as a personal attack.
Anyway, I have had my say and I am sure it won’t make any difference. But it is better than stewing over it.
Take care all.
