When I read this news, released on July 6, I said “wow” out loud. Wow because Google’s Chromecast devices have infiltrated more homes than carpenter ants (that may be an exaggeration).
Roon, my preferred and recommended music player software (and more), started out inside the world of hifi. This made perfect sense seeing as this community is filled with people who fill their hard drives, phones, and network attached storage with music and Roon does the best job of presenting that music to your eyes and brain and ears.
Chromecast lives well outside the hifi bubble. As of July 6, so does Roon.
My Chromecast Ultra will be here next week. Stay tuned.
