I'm not saying Sooloos hardware has no value. I'm specifically questioning the role/value of an MD600 in the soon-to-be hierarchy, given John's announcement of Core coming to QNAP, irrespective of the Roon scenario. What will it do that can't be done for a much lower price with no quality loss?

So I say again, I hope that M comes up with something that continues to give it purpose and added value.

If you're talking about Anders' comment, I think he means disable the endpoint in your Roon menu so that Sooloos can have it back smile

I basically gave up on Roon.

First, I don't have a PC to run the Sooloos Configuration Program to turn off my MC200's Core so I only have output from my laptop.

Second, the way Roon displays artists and music is not the way I select music.

Third. Adding music to the Sooloos queue is more intuitive with the iPad app and Control:Mac than Roon (at least for me).

Fourth, Roon did not bring all my info forward.
