Well not everybody listens exclusively to music without words, or just non-english words..
But a very quick search on my Roon shows 189 albums with Bernstein as performer, and 251 as composer, across my library and Tidal. Took as long as a single normal google search.
Thing is when I listen to music I like to not fart around with google, etc. ymmv
might be a few compilations and duplicates there I'm guessing.
I doubt I'll get through them all.
"Well not everybody listens exclusively to music without words, or just non-english words.."
But then I'm not trying to convince YOU that YOU should not be using Roon.
Clearly you SHOULD.
OTOH, YOU seem to be convinced that I should be using Roon! I'm just saying that it's likely NOT the case.
When I listen to music I mostly don't like messing around with the software that is playing it and yes, everyone's mileage varies which has been my point all along.
I don't need Roon, I'm not going to pay for Roon and I certainly don't need a 'lifetime' subscription because, at my age, EVERYTHING I buy comes with a 'lifetime' guarantee! :-)
And yes, I'm pretty happy with LMS as it streams TIDAL and QOBUZ and everything on the hard drive of the computer it's loaded on.
Now if you can convince me that Roon sounds considerably BETTER than LMS on MY system, I MIGHT listen.
Nope I wasn't saying that you should use Roon; I was simply talking about some of it's cool features. (This is a Roon thread after all)
As far as sound quality, well one thing that would be an improvement (and I can say this with some certainty) would be to use HQplayer to upsample your 44/16 output to 192/24 or 96/24 and then put it into your Audio-GD dac (just like the one I have). I don't think you can feed it from LMS into HQplayer, but guess which software does support this approach..
