Hi all, am on the trial, not sure if I’ll shell out for the cash yet, but it’s awesome to see SOMEONE doing something worthwhile with music. This is the part that’s been holding all the software back. Amarok for KDE / Linux got close a few years back and screwed it up. Plex.tv is also halfway there, but they’re not taking audio seriously enough.
It wasn’t hard to set up at all, though the Roon ‘easy’ installed didn’t work so I just did it manually.
Main thing I notice that Plex is leading on (though not performing at all well) is features for Mobile apps. They have sync capability and streaming outside of your network etc. The bit that I’ve been beating a drum for is syncing losslessly, I expect Roon will be the place that get’s that right eventually.
I look forward to seeing where this goes, don’t want my 14 days to be up!
