When I was considering an Innuous product recently the dealer I spoke to said it should be released sometime this summer - next 2 months or so.

Would very much appreciate hearing whether their new software is adequate in terms of managing music from different sources, such as searching for music on Qobuz or Tidal, along with stored music, and making playlists that combine music from both? Or would Roon still be necessary for combining streamed and stored music? (I understand Roon might still be very much desirable no matter how good the Innuous software is, no intent here to diminish Roon in any way).
I use Qobuz and Spotify and my own music ripped to the Innuos hard drive. I've never had any problems with any of the streaming sites coming thru the Zen Mini. I have the Denefrips Pontus dac and one of the things the upgrade seems to have fixed is having to reset the Innuos when the dac would change sample rates. Sometimes when changing from say 24/96 to 16/44 , the Zen Mini would shut the dac down and I would have to go into the settings of the streamer and reset it so the Pontus would would see it again. Didn't happen all the time, but it was annoying when it did. But it doesn't happen anymore. I have noticed a slight up tic in resolution, but it's always sounded great to me. As far as combining playlists , maybe Roon can do that I don't know cause I don't use Roon. But download the software and see what it does for you thru Roon. As far as SQ, you can't go wrong either way.
Just been updated by Innuos via email that the new Operating System is going through its paces and could be made available from the end of August 2020 all things going well.
Fingers crossed it's an Operating System that will stand up well to the other offerings. I'm hoping to see a nice and fresh approach to Music Management both in Streaming and from ripped CD's saved within the Drives of Innuos machines.
