I wanted validate what i understand about Roon so far so I can grasp what will work for me the best. I’m posting here to see if the communicate can validate what I understand so far. From what I understand right now, it does not benefit me unless I’ve been download music and burning cd’s to store on a network device.
At first I had this weird idea that you could use Roon and Tidal as a solution that you could download your Tidal files to your Roon server for offline play, sounds simple enough, play it locally on your network without constantly having to impact download and how much bandwidth you use.
Not so simple from what I understand. Roon just sits there and watches for files to be added. So, you have to move musics files into the folders you want to use, then stream from a remote source from there.
The only benefit if the library you have exceeds the capacity your local storage, other than that, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
In a nutshell, does this sound correct? If so, I’d rather just use Tidal and my 500gb notepad and just clean house once in a while instead of hording my library.
