I know I'm very late to the party, but better late than never. I just finished reading this thread, and it seems most are very happy with Roon. I downloaded their 15-day free trial yesterday afternoon, and I'm also considering the addition of Tidal. This will be my second night listening to Roon coming from JRiver MC-21. I also intend to join the Roon Community Site as well to learn about the latest additions to Roon.
