RE: That's what concerns me about Roon

Hi,

If you have your tags all set right, you can make roon behave as you like.

I'm more old-fashioned and tends to use folder structures and file names, as this is the lowest common denominator. Many of my older Rips are in Monkeys Audio and originated from EAC Beta 0.1...

Using folders and file names works with ANY format file, including DSD, ANY Playback software (even on my Android Phones and Tablets and all sorts of old streaming devices) I ever tried (except roon), works when I look at things in any file manager.

I guess as I have fairly good discipline in this assignment, I could get some bulk tag update software to re-tag everything based on file location and file name and then feed the result to Roon. But this again usually does not cover the whole raft of possible files and is a lot of work.

Ciao T

At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to untolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?
