There is a useful thread on the HiFi chat forum, which I tried to start here, but it was moved to HiFi chat, which is about alternatives to Sooloos and Roon. If, like me, you rarely look at forums other than the headlined Meridian Systems and Meridian Streaming ones you might on this occasion like to have a look at HiFi chat.

I am particularly trying to determine what I should do now that Sooloos is no longer being supported and, while Roon seems to be popular among Meridianistas, there are alternatives. I regard Roon as expensive compared with many competitors and I wouldn’t want to jump to it only to find that Roon withers like Sooloos in the light of developments here or just around the corner.

For those that only frequent the Meridian areas of the forum this is the link to that topic mentioned above Is Roon Doomed Like Sooloos?.

As the topic is looking at 3rd party alternatives to Meridian (or Roon) it falls squarely into the "HiFi Chat" category.

I've closed this topic so the discussion on alternatives streaming products can continue there, but I'm leaving this topic here as placeholder.
