I switched over to Roon a year or so ago. There was a while where MPD sounded clearly better (IMO). Then the playing field leveled (or I lost the ability to distinguish) and they sounded (nearly) identical. Once that happened, the ease and comfort of Roon's interface became a priority for me.
I think Chris has done wonders for MPD, and I'd never second-guess someone for loving/preferring it. If Roon is something you'd consider though (given its setup and price), it's worth a consideration. Roon handles Qobuz, Tidal, my media library, etc through Roon w/o any issues. -
I tried Roon for a while but as Qobuz is now my only external stream, I'm happy with Bryston MPD and several locally attached drives. Roon seems an unnecessary extra.
Just waiting for my within MPD Qobuz to return to activity.
