    You should consider, whether „Roon Bridge“ of Roon Labs could be included in a future version of Max2Play. Please see https://roonlabs.com and https://roonlabs.com/downloads.html.

    Therewith you could compete with SONORE Sonicorbiter SE, see http://www.sonicorbiter.sonore.us

    I assume that Roon Server might need more powerful hardware than Raspberry Pi, but perhaps the ODROID XU4 will do. If yes, this should be considered as well.

    It would be great if M2P would support Roon with a RoonBridge plug-in option.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the feedback. We will look into possible solutions for a Roon integration.

    another vote for roon integration

    it should be very easy for you guys to implement the roon bridge service and add a control on the webgui to enable / disable it

    i installed the roon bridge manually in ssh and the service runs perfectly in background

    only thin i need to do sometimes is kill / stop the squezelite when squezllite is still using the soundcard
    whenever squezlite is not using the soundcard, roon bridge works automaticly and only uses the soundcard when streaming from the roon core

    It is already quite easy to use M2P based raspberry in a Roon sytem: simply switch on LMS compatibility in your Roon core and all SB players (incl. Squiezelite) can be used as Roon endpoints.

    I’m currently testing this setup and it works fine.

    I’m however not sure yet if I want to make the jump to a Roon based setup. LMS + Squeezelite players + iPeng remote app is still unbeatable in some aspects.
    I don’t get it… how can a 10 year old system still beat all those systems out there like BlueSound, Linn, Naim and the likes in terms of usability? And even more incomprehensible: why has almost no hardware manufacturer used the LMS platform to develop their system on? I only know of Bryston who did this…
