Hi Audirvarna Community!
I’ve been using Audirvarna for about a year now and I’ve been using Roon for about two months.
I have A+ installed on two Mac’s. One for my headfi rig and one for my stereo set up. Forgive my ignorance, but I’ve not been able to stream from one installation to the other so I have one drive on each serving music (in addition to Tidal)’. This means I need to keep the drive synced when I add music.
I cant put my finger on it, but A+ just sounds better. Arguably Roon has the better interface, if you value that stuff. The meta data in Roon is nice, but when I switch on, my main priority is sound quality. This way I only need one audio repository.
BUT: The way Roon can spawn into a network is really it’s strength.
So my suggestion: If A+ can develop a similar protocol as RAAT, it will be the benchmark audio player in my view. This will make the integration of multiple systems in a household a breeze.
