Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

That's what concerns me about Roon

I am fastidious about tagging when ripping my music collection, and about correcting the metadata on hi-res downloads. I've also created custom trees in Twonky for browsing my music in different ways.

The control point apps I normally use treat my local library as separate from Tidal. I can mix local and Tidal content in the same playlist, but when browsing you're either browsing the local library or Tidal. The local library is clean and organized and easy to browse (for me) but Tidal is a big mess due to inconsistent and/or incorrect metadata.

I've been hesitant about Roon since it tries to blur the line between local content and Tidal content, if not eliminate it altogether. I'm concerned that it would un-do all the effort I put into curating my library, and the nice browsing experience I enjoy now would get mucked up by bad internet-sourced metadata. Any comments on that?
