    Unfortunately I was not able to hear the Auditoriums at AXPONA 2024. Based on what I did hear, the Piccolo, the Auditorium must be stupendous. The amps are the WestminsterLab Rei monoblocks (I've been using a pair of the WL Rei's for nearly a...

    That has not happened with the Aurender N20 I use. I believe there is a method for filing a remote support request in the "Help" section of the settings menu in the Conductor app. I have used that in the past and the response was fast.

    Mike replied to a thread Aurender and Roon in Aurender
    Suggestion: run Roon core on a computer in your house. Laptop is fine. Try roon on the aurender (free demo) and compare. If you prefer roon (it’s the best UI, but sonically inferior IMO), then buy a roon core (roon makes nice ones) and consider...

    When I learned at AXPONA 2024 that the N20 was made Roon ready, I was kind of excited but now I'm not so certain. While I enjoy Aurender's Conductor enormously and it has improved as my system has improved, I would like to have better...
