    Re: Sound volume level

    Replaygain is just a number (a multiplier) that is added to the metadata. It only affects the volume level. If used judiciously, the processor in your device should be able to handle a simple...

    Interesting that he bought back the shares that he sold to Sprint and then re-sold them to Square.

    Agree. Roon has automatic volume leveling and it can be adjusted by the user to desired level. It works with tracks from music streaming services as well as your own library.

    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    I tried Sling (with the ESPN bundle) and it worked fine for watching the event that I wanted. I have since cancelled and will definitely check out the ESPN subscription in the future. Thanks!

    Spotify HiFi is coming

    Interesting take. I still think that the Spotify folks would be foolish not to add $2-$3 dollars for the CD-quality content and use some of that money to pay something extra to the “creators”.

    Certainly a First-World audiophile problem. Most people that have a need for a generator in their home will be happy if it keeps the lights on and the refrigerator working.

    If you updated two days ago, you do not have the latest version which just came out today! The latest version as of today is "build 764".

    Re: Spotify HiFi is coming

    Exactly.



    No idea how much Spotify Premium tier will be; I would guess a few ($3 maybe) extra dollars a month.



    Agree. Spotify has several advantages over Tidal (and also Qobuz), to note:

    Re: Spotify HiFi is coming

    Roon would love to be able to integrate with Spotify. But Spotify has not allowed it. I doubt it ever will.

    Search the Roon Labs community forums and/or post your issue there. Sounds as if you have a set-up issue on your end.
