    Oh, Boy, does Roon suck big time! The high-end audio world needs a better solution!

    I was very much enjoying Roon for 4 years. In my new room, the core/server would not connect to my network player or my streaming services. I subsequently cancelled and now just stream Quboz from the Lumin app. There was too much connectivity complexity.

    ADGold - the underground system

    Thanks for your message. I am definitely encountering issues 1,2 and 4. The products seen in the renders have already been ordered (with some adjustments) and will be installed before the end of the month. I'm not surprised with my current challenges given the current state of the room.
