My first few days with Roon - thoughts and questions

    Yep, JRiver is superb, but I think I will let my annual renewal drop this year as I just don’t use it any more, Roon has taken its place because of the Qobuz integration. If JRiver changed their mind about Qobuz and Tidal I’d be back like a shot.

    Yes, there’s no problem having the music on a second external disc - that’s what I do with my Mac Mini.

    Just trying a Roon trial and my node works just fine but cannot get any audio out of my squeezebox Classic. I have done everything recommended regarding resetting, enabling in Roon, removing LMS in Core, fixed/variable volume out, Analogue/Digital out all no joy. When you look at the SB it is "playing" the track and can be paused etc as normal, just no audio output... Any thoughts?

    No real suggestions - I don’t have a Squeezebox - but try clicking on the star next to the name of the playing track at the bottom of the screen, that will show you the signal path that Roon’s using.

    Thanks and yes, I've seen that and the path looks fine in fact everything looks fine just no audio output from the SB....

    There’s a guy on the Roon forum that had a similar issue and fixed it with a reset ..

    here are a variety of other posts about issues with the classic. It took me two goes to get my Touch working.

    The last time I paid way back when they simply refused to engage with any possibility of streaming tidal/spotify etc etc. Is this still the case?

    Yes, they are still opposed to Tidal/Qobuz/Spotify/Amazon integration. Great software in its day, but can’t see how they can hope to survive if they don’t integrate with streaming services.

    Yes it does not present any value to me in that case, there are millions of ways to stream just your own content. Plex for instance is free and looks far nicer than Jriver.

    Thanks I saw that and that's why I tried the reset etc to no avail. I actually replied to that topic but was asked to create a new one so I have done that too.

    Truly, sorry to hear them abuse you. Terrible terrible attitude of that salesman. On an unrelated point, I want to ask a genuine question and I hope i don’t offend you in any way. You are clearly a great contributor and have helped loads on the forum, but why do you have a picture of Vladimir Putin wearing shades as your profile picture please?

    I did it for a laugh. I thought he'd be a suitable avatar to stop me from being attacked by some of the right-wing nutters on pfm. Putin looks like he's trying to hide his dodginess behind the shades, but underneath it all doesn't really care. Unfortunately it hasn't worked. I might change the picture at some point, I'm not sure what into ...

    Recognising your love of all things Chelski, how about changing it to Lampard, Wilkins, Hoddle or, going further back, the late great Jimmy Greaves.

    Signed up for another two week trial of Roon and reinstalled it. I'd forgotten just how great music sounds through it.

    In the last few months I've been using Tidal, iTunes and occasionally Spotify. Roon to my ears is way ahead in terms of sound reproduction.

    The Roon folder has gone into the Mac Mini's Library on the SSD. It's 12.3 GB, most of which is the database. I've put the Backups a level higher.

    I haven't properly checked yet, but it appears to have easily found a lot of my music files.

    The quality is is excellent and well worth the $9.99 a month, which is what I think it costs. The chances are I'll partner it with Qobuz.

    I'm not so sure Tony would be happy about that. :D

    In my experience it sees all the music in the folder you point it at. Sometimes it does not find the album in its own database but it still lists it with an "unidentified"

    Woops my mistake, he’s still alive.

    I got the great bit right anyway - 1 out of 2 ain’t bad.

    I suspect he might beg to differ.;)
