I am streaming , how can I play music when provider goes down.

  1. Hello I have been streaming for awhile now ,and have  a 1T server with Flac files on it .  My question  is there anyway I could still play my music when my provider  spectrum goes down ,it can be quite disturbing especially when company comes over . Any ideas or help would greatly be appreciated , no CDs as a option ,    thanks much ,and happy listening 🎶 🎼!!

Hello To all ,I just have a fanless computer  running Roon,qobuz and separate dac 

i will purchase whatever is needed , I am just building a reference digital system

it bugs me to be crippled ,every time spectrum goes out 

when I have 1Terabytes of Flac files on a Solid state drive ,

much appreciated with any all help !!

I only use Flac files no fm tuner, or phones I want to be able to access my Flac files 

how to access them ,and how to play files and pick music to play ,

when my service provider is down ?

iwas even thinking in the future like my friend to spend $500 for the Tesla starling setup then pay the $100+ for music and Audio , at a later date .

Roon 2.0 requires an active Internet connection at all times to work. And obviously Qobuz does as well. If your Internet connection goes down, use different software to access and play the locally stored music.

When the network (often) goes down you lose all remote control of a network player (streamer.)  You could load a "party" (huge) playlist (if you have the files) on random. It will continue to play but remote control will be lost until the network comes back up. I know of zero non network players available in 2023. I'm keeping mine.


I use a Aurender with a 2TB SSD and have like 500 CS on it, I can listen to that if my Internet goes out. Or get starlink
