There's a lot to like about Roon. I used it for a long time with Tidal and Qobuz (no local files). The issue for me is that I'm deeply in the Apple ecosystem (long time user due to being in the graphic design industry) and the Roon apps on iOS are sub par. I've spoken to Roon support and followed the threads on the Roon forums, but it seems because Roon is built on Xamarin the Roon apps may never be any better than partially broken on iOS. When Apple started offering lossless earlier this year I made the switch to Apple Music and saved myself ~$40 per month. So far I've been satisfied with the switch and I'm happy to be rid of the buggy, non-compliant Roon mobile apps.
If I was an Apple user I would have probably switched by now, too.
