RE: That's what concerns me about Roon

" 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."

What does your music library reside on now and what do you use for your 'nice browsing experience'?

Roon Settings > Library > Import Settings gives you a lot of flexibility on whether it pulls metadata from its service or uses your own metadata in your Library.

You can always backup your Library and keep it on a separate disk while playing with a Roon FREE trial on your main Library. If it does something you don't like, just restore your backup. I assume everyone keeps a tested and working backup of their music library. ;-)
