“Roon will change the way you listen to music in that it will serve you up musical options and link them together. Search for an artist, an album, or a song and it presents you with the answers by looking at everything you have within your musical library and everything it can find within Tidal, depending on the parameters you set. It will download rich metadata for all your music, including those ripped files and continually look for ways to enhance and expand that.”
—Chris Thomas, Hi-Fi+
“For those looking to leave the world of physical discs, this Linux-based server is a slick way to do so. With high-quality streaming and insanely good control of your ripped music, this $1,400 music server replaces an old Oppo, a Mac Mini, and more.”
