Well, I am still testing Roon and have very mixed feelings. As I have a 100% classical collection with about 75% Opera boxsets, I am obviously the most difficult Roon user. The Metadata which issupposed to be the reason for the pricing, is very vague for my stuff. Also I would have to manually identify about 1900 albums mysel, because Roon did not do it, it find 1400 other albums. Without the actual Roon metadata it is a visual upgrade to my Squeezebox universe, but the main kick is missing. I cannot see myself manually identifying moreless 2000 albums, plus grooming.
I would love it, if it actually worked as advertised, but for classical music owners (as read in many posts) it seems to be less than ideal.
Something I really love about Roon, that LMS cannot do - Merge artists. This is a great feature, being able to group Callas and Maria Callas together as 1 artist, often I only used surnames in my tags.
I am really still wondering, in a way I like Roon - but without the actual gimmick of functioning Metadata for my collection, the price does not seem right. It moreless just would do what LMS does well - but looking nicer at it, with some links. Mainly having my own Tags, would probably not be worth it.
