Hi John, I hope you don't mind me butting in here, I haven't tried Roon. I assume you've got an Apple tablet. I haven't been able to get the Lumin app to work worth a damn with an Android tablet.

No, not at all. Your experience with the Lumin app is relevant. Yes, I have an iPad. I also have a Roon subscription and currently use this software with a Bluesound Node2. The Roon app occasionally fails to find the Bluesound "core", but I think I may have solved that with a setting change. Having left high school just when the first HP LED handheld calculators hit market (I did graduate...), I'll never be as savvy with computers/networks/software as I once was with a slide rule. Glitches, even if I can fix them, will frustrate the heck out of me if they occur more frequently than a blue moon.
I had a Node 2 myself and really liked their BluOs app. It didn't retrieve any metadata or anything but it worked without a hiccup for me. Most of what I know about Roon is what I've read in the magazines and they all think it's the greatest thing ever. I'd try it myself but my desktop is too old to run its core.
I have the Lumin A-1. I absolutely love the Lumin Ap. It is very easy to use and it does not cost anything. I was set to enlist JRiver or Roon but said why pay for another subscription as I am already paying for TIDAL. The only time I have had glitches, it was related to updating my IPad. Once I did that for whatever reason it was fine again.
