What is Roon?

The music player for music lovers.

In the transition from physical to digital media, something has been lost. We have more convenience than ever, but no feeling of excitement or engagement.

Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews, lyrics, and concert dates, and makes connections between artists, composers, performers, conductors, and producers.

What you get is a searchable, surfable magazine about your music.

Music lovers have content from many sources, often acquired over years of collecting. Roon identifies your music, then enhances it with the latest metadata.

Music lovers have all kinds of audio equipment for different kinds of listening. Roon detects these devices and streams the optimal audio resolution to each.

Enjoy your music instead of managing your audio equipment.

It's not just music player, but also complete online and offline music manager, all in one tool for music library....

The best music player in the world and anyone else will agree with me when they use it. However, it comes at a hefty price of $500 or about $100 a year for an annual subscription.

I will never know if I like Roon or not, because I'm not willing to give any company my credit card data just to start a trial.

if you're looking for a music player with elegant UI on Linux, you have to keep on searching, because roon does not provide the client for Linux - only the core

Seems complicated with much overhead. You may need a training course in order to know how to use it. It is a monster that will need to be tamed. That being said, for a rich audiophile I am sure ROON would be a cats meow at over $500.00 for a lifetime license for just one account playing. The rest of us peasants will have to look around to find an alternative player we can afford. I can afford applications like J-River for instance. I have read that it does a decent job. For the rich people with $50,000 Speakers and $100,000 Pre-Amps / Power Amps / DA converters / Streamers the $500 bucks is pocket change. Wooooohooo! I am happy for them.
