With the advent of release 1.6’s much enhance Radio algorithms, I’m enjoying Roon more and more than ever. It’s really wonderful to now have Roon digging deep into my collection and beyond and presenting me with untold delights with no effort on my part, apart from being a willing participant . It really makes using Roon an ongoing worthwhile experience.
Then it occured to me that everyone’s use-case for Roon is different; we all have different reasons for using Roon over other software and it’d be interesting to find out a bit more about what aspect or aspects of Roon keep you coming back for more? It could also highlight to Roon themselves as to areas of further development, so don’t hesitate to put down some further dev ideas.
So, to kick off…my main reasons to use Roon over other software are:
Ability to use tags and bookmarks and sort and display effectively combinations of tagged items for exporting or playlisting. (would really love to see this expanded to allow searchable custom comments, and more boolean combinations for tags)
The excellent and robust networking and multi-room/device access on the same network. (would really love to see this expanded to mobile use; ie away from LAN)
The now excellent Radio feature which digs deep into my collection and beyond.
What are your standout/key features and how could they be improved?
