Roon is the Gold standard when it comes to creating a catalogue for your music and then distributing it. All the number crunching happens before it gets to your components and this increases the fidelity of the signal..and better sound is the result. This catalogue can be a curated catalogue thru Tidal, your CD’s converted to FLAC or high resolution files you have purchased. Roon also allows you to stream this catalogue of music to any room which has a Roon end point. You may ask, do I need to buy an endpoint…not likely, if you have a chromecast device, Apple TV, airplay speaker or Roon tested component you are in business. I’ve used Roon for years, I highly recommend it - Mike @ Audio Two
