Ditching Roon going back to BluOS for Bluesound Node 2i


My Bluesound Node 2i is connected wireless through my very good Eero Pro mesh wifi (love this network btw) and I hear nothing but awesome things about Roon.  So I bought the trial and don't really like it.. I figure there's got to be something I'm missing.

Points and issues:
1. I do not use a NAS.. I stream Tidal/Amazon exclusively.

2. Big one here: Roon does NOT list the top songs from artists! You have to select the album.
.

3. Using wifi, there's a large lag in playing a song through Roon (10-20 seconds until the song finally starts mid-song) Works fine hardwired but it's not ideal for my setup.

4. The DSP functions in Roon is nothing but an EQ that requires me to know alot about what I'm adjusting and can only adjust from the main computer (core)

5.  With Roon, I have to keep my main computer running all the time  

All of these issues seem to be alleviated with the BluOS app.. Am I missing something here because I would rate the BluOS app FAR superior to Roon.

You don't like it. You don't need it. I would be lost without it.

I use Roon to replace my previous iTunes + airport express (s) + airplay devices for multi-room synchronous streaming.

It works very well for that AND streams Hi-Res while integrating my personal library with Qobuz as if its all one library with album/artist information and links to even more music.

None of it is hardwired and is only utilizing an Eero mesh wifi.
