TIME: Sunday, JUNE 21, 7:00 PM Eastern Time

PLACE: a Zoom Video Conference

FEATURED GUEST: Ted Brewer, member of the Connecticut Audio Society

TOPIC: Review the ROON Digital Music Management System

According to Wikipedia, the list of on-line music servers has grown swiftly. Apple’s online business of selling audio files over the internet on a per-song or subscription basis is the current sales leader. The category of music services can be differentiated into multiple types. Some are over the internet, cloud based, while others are streamed over the internet. Some online music stores also sell recorded speech files, such as podcasts and video files of movies. Some specialize in the type of music available, Rock, Classical, Country and others.

Ted Brewer, our guest lecturer, will show us how the Roon Digital Music Management System seamlessly integrates music from some of these streaming services with music from our personal libraries. In addition, Ted will show us how Roon:

  •  accesses rich metadata to provide a wealth of information about artists, composers, and albums
  •  supports hi-res synced or parallel group playback in almost any file format to a range of devices
  •  leverages the power of digital signal processing for equalization, room correction, sample rate conversion, and volume leveling
  •  provides an intuitive and consistent interface for control of a range of system functions via computer, smartphone, or tablet
  •  exposes users to new music across a range of genres based on personalized listening habits
