I’m going to chime in here because I also think Roon is expensive, but I think you’re looking at it the wrong way. First, watch this: How does this DSP capability, which you just learned about, change your opinion on how you enjoy your headphones? You already stated how much you like how the Audeze sound, so this shouldn’t make you like them any less. Regarding the cost, I agree Roon is an expensive piece of software. I’m demoing right now and it’s definitely overkill for my needs. I have just barely more than 400 local albums and use Tidal HiFi for everything else and I only listen music on headphones and from only one source, so the multi-zone and other features are wasted on me. Not to mention you need to have a PC or Mac running to use the Audeze DSP and my current setup doesn’t rely on a computer (I have an AURALiC ALTAIR and stream my local files from a NAS and Tidal over Wi-Fi). Having said that, putting it in perspective in this hobby where some folks spend $1,800+ on a headphone cable for what many people believe is placebo and has no effect on the sound, by comparison $500 for a tangible change in sound (assuming you like it) is arguably pretty reasonable. That’s not even factoring in the other benefits of the software, like the discovery capabilities (which I am growing to like very much). It just seems a silly argument if Audeze did nothing on the software side you would be a happy customer, but the fact they are making this option available to Roon subscribers makes you question supporting the company at all. Stop supporting a company because they are trying to innovate and give customers options? What? Parting thought - the benefit to this software approach is you can demo it for 60 days and decide if it’s worth it for you. Where else in this hobby can you demo something in home for 60 days for free? You might find out the DSP actually sounds worse to you.
