    Re: On the future of Roon...

    What I find interesting between streaming and having your own library is the ability to have my own playlists and access without relying on a private streaming company. I was a subscriber to MOG a decade or so ago and it went bye-bye so I had all these playlists and albums that I found via streaming and then gone. Who knows what will happen to Spotify or Tidal or Q.

    I do miss iTunes but I found the lack of updates for my operating system frustrating. Then when they switch to Apple Music I lost interest in their service. Now, it seems even more of a hassle to switch back to Apple Music instead of Roon and Tidal.

    Roon is really cool to link composers with artists and see the connections between music, but it really just uses Allmusic.com for their bios and album info. Basically, I've learned to listen to new music or finds via streaming and if I really like it, I buy it on vinyl or digitally via bandcamp.

    …..
    Just so you know, the playlists that you generate within Roon are not exportable/transferrable to other services. If you try to export them all you get is an alphabetical listing of the tracks. If Roon goes away, you will have to recreate every single playlist. There have been many requests from users to the developers of Roon but so far they have not added that feature.

    I do believe that Spotify is here to stay. So I use Spotify to create all my playlists. Then I transfer them to Qobuz for use with Roon.
