Roon is snappy responsive now

Applied latest version Roon server for windows and app on IPhone today. So far the annoying slowness in the user interface is no more. It’s very responsive and snappy now. Hope it stays this way.

Immediately prior I received a message from Roon containing an update on the Harmon acquisition and new product direction to focus more on its core user group of music lovers Audiophiles, etc. including focus now on application performance, which is paying immediate dividends. This is a great start so far and I hope they keep it up as promised.


My experience is the exact opposite. Each time my phone locks, the roon remote app on my iphone loses connection with roon sever running on a macbook pro. When I reopen the remote app I have to restart it to resume playback control. I'm not sure what's going on but the issue may be isolated to iOS. Roon seems to work fine when I use my second macbook pro as the remote. Minor nuisance and not worth brain damage to open a ticket. 

Just filled out a survey today, they care, we'll see what changes are brought forth:

Shape Roon's Future

Your feedback is important

As we start a new chapter with Harman International, we remain committed to our cause. Roon has been built by and for our community of music lovers and audiophiles, and as we look forward, we intend to continue making great products that serve this community. Now, we need your help. 


We invite you to participate in a 10-minute survey that will directly inform Roon’s roadmap. It's your chance to tell us your story - how Roon fits into your life, where Roon excels, and where we can improve. Your insights are essential as we plan the next steps for Roon within the Harman family.


Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and make your voice heard. We’ve come this far, now it’s time to write our next chapter together 

Yes I filled out the survey and emphasized improving performance and reliability and making ARC better and more reliable.  Sonic analysis like with Plex would be a nice enhancement. 

I did a couple of things myself recently that also helped Roon performance.

1) disabled some audio devices detected that I didn’t need

2). Ran a clean on my library which cleaned out several thousand legacy items.

Buying a new router won’t improve sound quality unless you are getting dropouts from a weak connection…
