If you like Roon...then yes...if you want to play using your own custom folder structure, then you cannot use Roon for that. Perfect is subjective...but hey as long as you enjoy da music.

Go check out Asset : https://www.dbpoweramp.com/asset-upnp-dlna.htm



I have been using it for years in different setups, never failed me. Combines very nicely with Mind app

Roon supports any folder structure you want; no restriction here. But of course the key benefit is the meta-data; extended information, database and smart ways to find music you like that you have never heard before. Of course, the only way to know if this is for you is to try it

The feature enhancement request for Roon Folder browsing has been there for years, with many saying it is stupid and will never happen...TBH I don't care much for that discussion, as long as us Moon lovers can get what they want...coming back to Moon MIND gives you many options to integrate, and Simaudio includes a Roon trial for 60 days, so agree with Berland give it or others a try and decide for yourself.


Berland...living in Norway and no Arendal gear? Aren't you afraid to walk the streets ;-)

Thanks, I'm going to try out JRiver and Asset. I am familiar with dbpoweramp for ripping CDs so I may already have a copy of Asset.

Any owners out there have thoughts on Simaudio 280D vs the new 680D? I own a 340i, but I'm not sure I would put this in the same system.

No, would never switch my B&W collection with Arendal.
