Roon Updates
09/20/22 at 22:02:41
 
Roon just released their new 2.0 software update. In addition they have also released a new app called Roon ARC. The combination allows for remote listening via a laptop, tablet or phone. This would be particularly useful to folks who want to stream music via Tidal or Qobuz and Roon to listen in your car. Roon ARC can also access your hard drive library music, something never before possible (I think).

It will be interesting comparing SQ via Room ARC vs. Qobuz in the car. I plan to use my Pixel 6 phone> DAC dongle> Aux cable > Pioneer headunit. I may also try Bluetooth, however I never got decent SQ with this older headunit.

For those who might try this new delivery system out, please post your impressions. The only downside I see is that Roon Core must remain on for the connection to Room ARC to work properly. If Roon Core goes down, particularly when the software updates, you'll need to reboot/open the Core. At this point it can't be done remotely.

HK, thank you for updates. When I get around to steaming on my Bryston BDA-2 in the main system and the Cambridge CXNV2 in the 2nd system, Roon and Qobuz will be on subscription.

Hi all,

Iíve been playing around with Roon Arc on an iPhone SE. In my car I connect using a lightening cable into the CD player/satellite radio, itís an older Jeep pre-wireless connections. The sound quality is equal to playing a cd. The iPhone downsamples everything to 48 kHz. I had some connection issues when I first tried but it seems to be stable now. I had to change a couple of settings on my router.

I can access both my local library & Qobuz through Roon Arc, a very nice feature. Iíll be testing it through a portable Bluetooth speaker later. If all goes well, this will be a great setup for traveling.

Regards,
Mario
