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.

Again thanks for all the feedback. This solidifies my thoughts that BluOS is better for me since I don't use a NAS and mainly stream from Tidal. 

I do love the BluOS software but thinking about giving the Volumio Primo streamer a try with their software too.
Not a Roon fan. We use iPeng. We believe it sounds better and is less expensive. Streaming Qobuz with Innuos  Zenith mk3 server is a breeze.

How can the app "sound" better?  Never heard of iPeng.
So, I just tried Roon, and yes it does show you the top tracks of an artist.

Best,

@erik_squires how and where do you see this?   Are you talking about on the phone app?
