Roon is must-have software for hardcore music fans

Michael Brown | May 21, 2015
Fair warning to fans of high-end audio: Don't sign up for the free two-week trial to Roon Labs' Roon media server unless you're prepared to commit to the $119 annual subscription. Once you've spent some quality time listening to music and managing your music library with this software, you won't want to go back to whatever you were using before.

As for its worthiness: You don't buy Roon, you subscribe to it for $119 a year. Alternatively, you can purchase a lifetime license for a one-time payment of $499. If music is something you only play in the background while you're doing other tasks, you probably won't get enough benefit from Roon to justify that annual cost. But if music is one of your passions, if you yearn for every detail about what went into the production of your favorite records, if you crave new music discovery, if you want to learn who influenced the artist, the engineer, or the producer — and who they influenced or inspired in turn — Roon is a must-buy.
