I don't want Harman/Samsung involved in Roon, EVER!yessir! I happened to notice it said “Roon Ready” a little later in the morning, to the left of the album pics. I don’t notice a performance difference—I’m sure there were little gremlins that Arcam was trying to kill before Roon accepted it as ‘Roon Ready’ that I was oblivious to (and I’m ok with that). Roon really is a nice system. Harman ought to just completely buy into that for its own ecosystem instead of developing MusicLife further or something else to match BlueOs or what Denon does. It seems like giving some kind of rebate opportunity for a Roon lifetime subscription with the purchase of these processors would be a better way to go (and they could do something like manufacture Roon cores that match the processors, or something like that, etc.).
Roon is very well developed and mantained and it should stay like this. An Involvement of Companies, who don't care about the Customer will be the death of roon. For example, they wanted to get rid off the Hardware which stated roon ready but wasn't anything near certified and the plan was to pull the plug. So some of us got involved and stated, that it would be unfair to the existing customers and roon reacted and found a solution, Harman never ever would have.
And also, WHY? Roon doesn't in any way replace a nice app to control the device and/or use things like spotify or amazon music, or a lot of other streaming services.
