Is Roon better than Sooloos? No!!!!

Sometimes it cant find my Meridian endpoints. There is a little bit more information in Roon, but is that worth 50$ a year?

I Think Sooloos is absolutely the best choice it is simple and straightforward and is always working.

Is Roon better than Sooloos for you? No


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

Happy to agree with Herman except for the weaknesses in legacy M storage 2xMD600 in my case, with no reliable diagnostics.

But hey ho I have learnt to live with this and don't expect any change. Happy with Tidal / MQA / my system, as is but might invest in 218 to extend capability to another zone.

I use Roon and the only time I have trouble with my MS200 endpoints is when I occasionally have to re start a power line adapter in my Bedroom Zone. This is an issue on my network and not a Roon fault.
Hardwired cat5e zones are rock solid.

Further to my last reply, I did have a Roon zone issue today and noticed the Ram on my QNAP was saturated. A restart of the core fixed this. Systems normal now.
