Roon vs. file metadata import preferences also have global settings.

Please note, this is not the advised procedure. It is advisable to do a full export from Sooloos, and then point Roon at that. It will have a better chance of identifying albums then. (I believe what you did - pointing directly at the Sooloos storage - works better now than it used to, but is still basically not optimised.)

Glad it hit the spot for you.

Ludwig,

So far I think it's fabulous in its current form! I'm genuinely excited to get it all running properly.

Yes, will do an export and set everything up properly now, just wanted to get an idea of it all first.

Thanks. Yeah Russ kindly had a chat with me earlier which was really helpful. I'm going to go for a NUC i7 and run ROCK I think!

Nice to chat James, as discussed a NUC7i5BNH would be fine for your needs although the NUC7i7BNH offers around 15% performance gain which may or may not prove relevant?
