I tried Room for a few days when it was first released but gave up rather quickly. One's head can start swimming trying to follow integration with Sooloos here and trying to follow the changes on Roon's site. It sounds like some of my early issue may have been addressed if I am following this thread correctly.

Current system All my files have been ripped via Control:Mac to my MC200. Currently no other storage The MC200 is hardwired to my 808v3 which I control with the iPad app and Control:Mac. I have no PC in the house to run Control Configuration Tools so I cannot turn on/off endpoints.

Here is my question. If I was to purchase NAS and start loading my CD's onto this device using dBpoweramp (sounds like this is the preferred tool here then load Roon and point to the my music on the NAS. (not my MC200). Would Roon see the ID40 card in my 808.

Could I go back a forth between Sooloos and Roon accessing the one endpoint? Will there be conflicts that I cannot address having no Control Configuration?

I have been using one or the other through two MS200's in different zones.
If you start Roon it takes control of the end points from Sooloos. If I turn off Roon, Sooloos comes back.
To do this I have my music exported in Native (FLAC) to a different hard drive that Roon is looking at.
Sooloos looks at my library in a TwinStore and MC200, Roon looks at a separate (but identical in content) library on a 3TB hard drive in an 'Icybox' USB3 to control windows 10 laptop.
I hope this makes sense. I intend to consolidate this to a proper Roon system in time.

Thank you. From your experience it sounds as if I should have no problems once I point Roon to the files on the non MC200 device. Shutting down Roon will allow Sooloos to take control of the endpoints again. Does it take time for Roon to restart each time?

I have Roon core on a laptop and it only takes a few mins to start the laptop and fire up Roon.
It's a good idea to leave running for a good while to allow the background task of analysing the levels on all the audio to complete.
Getting a Native export from Sooloos to a clean hard drive is the first step. When ripping to Roon use dBpoweramp. You can import the files to Sooloos as well via Control:PC.
Back up always. Chris smile
