    I wonder if the budget would be better spent on kse1200 and a more ‘mediocre’ source component.

    Superb choice KSE1200 (but I would say that)

    Surely this is another reason why Google Cast should be a priority. It works with all flavours of Android.

    Yes it is a huge priority for us but not so much for Google......

    Google's attitude towards supporting the product and services it offers has often been "interesting" and sometimes downright perplexing.
    They discontinued Chromecast audio without notice earlier this year and I managed to to lay my hands on the last two of them at my local box store (the Play store was already out of stock). One of them is now attached to a second Mojo and pair of active speakers in my living room. The other remains unboxed, awaiting its chance to shine.
    I notice the BBC Sounds app was launched without cast support. I'm still using Its predecessor, iPlayer radio, for that reason.
    Are you able to share any further insight into why Google might be dragging its feet? I can't believe that Google would abandon cast, there's just too much hardware and apps out there that use it, but you can never tell with them.

    Unfortunately I don't have any more information. From our side it's just a shame they didn't keep cast as an open source protocol that all manufacturers could use.

    Matt, how come Bubbleupnp, Roon and others are able to develop it still?
     
  8. Matt Bartlett
    Google will allow you to develop software apps that transmit ( cast ) to other devices. Hardware receivers though are a different matter and don't fall under Google's
    normal development platform.

    Any update :)

    How about the hardware manufacturers like yourself integrating the Google Cast functionality into their products? There are quite a few hence Google stopped making Chromecast Audio product.

    Hey all, couple of questions:
    • For home play I am using foobar2k with a dlna/upnp addon. Are any of you using anything else on the PC ?
    • Is roon worth the money ?
    Thanks for any help.

    For my needs Roon seems overkill (e.g. not needing multiroom) but the interface is excellent and integrating Tidal with my own library was good. A 2 month trial is provided to see if Roon is for you.

    I seriously considered roon as I could not get MusicBee UpNP/DLNA server & control point working, however after the upgraded firmware released this month MusicBee works a treat.
    Before then I relied on MinimServer running on PC
     
  14. MaxD
    I keep meaning to give musicBee a go. Thanks, going to try it out now :).
     
  15. Matt Bartlett
    Yes I've been working with Roon on this. They've come back today after setting up a closed support forum so
    together we can work out what the problem is. Anyone still having problems getting Roon to play to Poly
    can PM me and I will send over the private link - just bear in mind it's the Easter holidays until Tuesday so I
    may not be able to respond immediately.
