I am sorry miguelito but I am not sure how many years I still have... so, a more reasonably price would be more than welcome :-)

How about a discount equal to your age? Only problem is that Roon would get sued for age discrimination. ;-))

 

More seriously, any thoughts yet on how 1.3 may affect the interaction with HQPlayer?

Possibly a small discount will push all the NUTCASES here over the edge and number will compensate for lower price...

 

My understanding is HQP integration is NOT affected. I don't know (yet) if this means that when you engage the upsampling and DSP engines the HQP integration is turned off but I really doubt it. If you're crazy enough to upsample in Roon and then reupsample in HQP, then I suppose you can knock yourself out... :)

 

 

Also keep in mind that HQP acts after the endpoint as opposed to upsampling/DSP which happens in the core prior to routing to the endpoint over RAAT. So I am fairly certain you can use both - will try.

... so, does v1.3 allow Tidal content to be software unfolded (at least to 24/96, like Tidal's own desktop application)? No mention of, what is to many, and important issue has me a little concerned, though that doesn't mean it's not baked in. As a JRMC user who's been on the fence with Roon for a while due to its high (I'm not necessarily saying unjustified, just high) price, this feature could be just the thing to get me to finally pull the trigger (esp. given my non-MQA-enabled DAC).

Roon --> ultraRendu/Uptone LPS-1 --> Kii CONTROL --> Kii THREE active speakers (everything on Black Ravioli bases and footers)

Interestingly, I would expect that those using NUC/NAS-based cores will find that they cannot upsample to DSD256 in Roon (not enough compute power) and would have to fall back to upsampling in HQP at the endpoint.

Not sure why those using HQP would even think of using any DSP/upsampling in Roon. Otherwise, why use HQP? If the idea is to compare, then ok, but not both. If Roon wins out, drop HQP (unlikely but the logical end to this argument)

Where is the link to download 1.3?

 

Thanks,

No software decoding yet.

My major holdup for getting Roon and MicroRendu was always that I'd also need to get HQPlayer to do some simple parametric EQ for room correction in my main stereo. That's why I kept using my CAPSv3 Carbon. Roon 1.3 might finally change that. Will have to see. Lots to think about.

Just find it annoying they make the announcement before the software is online for download. Why not wait till we can actually download/update?

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
