Hi Sallah - I definitely understand, and I don’t begrudge any Roon user their desire to take it mobile, although I do most of my listening at home.
My point was that enabling mobile listening isn’t likely to gain Roon substantial new users from the younger generations. Roon mobile will be good for current Roon users, and it may pull away some users from JRiver, Foobar, MediaMonkey, Plex, what have you. If you have a local collection you want to marry to a mobile solution, Roon mobile would do that.
But regarding streaming users without a local collection, which is the vast majority of music listeners under 40-50, then Roon isn’t going to interest them. They already have their mobile solution because they don’t have a home collection they need Roon to stream to them.
So my point was that going mobile makes Roon a more complete product, but it isn’t going to gain a mass audience.
The ultimate point I’d intended to make was that Roon’s desire to deliver collection organization on a silver platter, without a lot of manual control, may be misdirected. Those of us with large local collections want that manual control. There are music users that want their music delivered on a silver platter, pre-organized, but Spotify already does that for those folks because they don’t have local collections. Thus, it would be just really dandy if Roon would get back to making their UI/UX more robust and complete the job of making the current features fully functional and working as well as possible, rather than chasing a group of users that will never come to Roon.
