Ok, thanks very much for posting and trying to make sense of it, shame Meridian didn’t make something of it as it is potentially quite a big development.

I wonder if this is the most sensible route for Meridian hardware to handle greater than 96k streaming ?

New hardware could adopt RAAT.

Interesting move.

Agreed, plus the Sooloos install base must be reducing to a point where a decision needs to be taken.

This is great, I hope they do adopt RAAT also. I expect Meridian can provide Sooloos FOC and offer a Paid for Roon upgrade.

I think Sooloos core can be run on a QNAP also; so this would effectively take care of the current install base. I think that was what accelerated the crash in the value of the MD600 and MC200 a couple of years back. The handwriting was already on the wall.

Agreed I guess it is a question of the value Meridian puts on Sooloos and whether they want to commit resources to maintaining it, I believe development is unlikely.

I loved Anders quote on the Roon forum

“If you are not paying for the service, you are the service”

That’s very true, I was kind of referring to the biult in nature of Sooloos in the hardware, but perhaps this could evolve to Roon Essentials. Meridian always used to say they were best in class or there is no point. Roon is IMHO best in class so this makes sense.

They do not want to alienate the existing customer base of DSPs from SE upgrades and new purchases. The bridge components to other processors is a prime example. I have wondered if the Roon MQA decode is being held up until Meridian can get MQA decoding embedded in Sooloos, which I think also streams Tidal. With a common owner, having them both on a common QNAP platform makes sense, to this accountant anyway😬

Are you suggesting M is run by accountants and not as previously by highly qualified experienced engineers.
If so I tend to agree. I am not suggesting this is good or bad, but necessary for survival JMO.
