    Re: Roon lifetime price increase to $699

    I am not surprised at all by this. What I am surprised by is how long it took them to make this change. When I was helping EJ out for a little while a couple years ago, and setting him up to sell Roon products, they had expressed to me that they did not believe that the lifetime subscription would be offered going forward. They felt it was not viable for them as a company. The lifetime was for an influx of cash as a new company but the yearly sub was their long term goal. They felt early adopters could take advantage of it but eventually they would eliminate lifetime sub all together and new customers would only have the yearly option.

    I know they have been trying to get rid of the lifetime subscription for quite some time. The yearly sub has not changed.

    It is really great software that is continually enhanced. You should give it a try , since it sounds like you already own it.

    Here is why:


    https://community.roonlabs.com/t/lif...-499-699/84339


    I agree with them. Maybe itís time to eliminate the lifetime all together as an option for new subscribers. Early adopters are rewarded.

    People on the fence should jump in soon.
