Since the advent of streaming services I stopped buying CDs and are now paying for the content using a service like Tidal, spotify or apple music. I struggle to see the purpose of roon in the age of streaming, but maybe that is just me.

I am an old LMS user. I am also trying roon under trial period. I globally prefer LMS over Roon but that's not black and white.

Set up:
Dac lindeman musicbook
LMS 7.8 in a container in a Qnap ts253B
Roon Core in the nas, app from qnap store
Squeezebox Touch Logitech connected to the nas by coax
Roon playing files from the nas, usb to the dac

My LMS pro:

-free and open source 😁
-possibility to browse and play directly folders (and that's a huge pro for me!!)
-lots of additional plugins
-remote interface nice regardless the OS (while Roon remote is a lot better on IOS than Android.

Pro Roon
-can output music directly from the nas through usb to the dac (couldnt do it with miniserver)
-can play DSD
-lots of visual informations while browsing (ex looking at playlists, can see how many tracks and how long) and album or artists info
