    As far as I could tell, no. You can tell it to generate playlists based off a certain artist, but it was always the same playlist per artist, in my experience. I wish that it had a radio feature like Pandora.

    Will it play a genre of misc songs, or do you have to pick and chose each song?

    Oddly, I know Pandora is basically stone age, but I love the radio like feature. As an example I created the "Kansas Channel" and it is awesome. It nails the songs I'm looking for in classic rock.

    Funny thing, Pandora "free" sounds way better than XM.

    It will show a list and then you could edit or hit play

    So, if I select genre, then Rock, and hit play; it will play a mix of rock songs?

    In addition.... Roon has a feature called Roon Radio that you can select to play a similar genre mix of music after playing an album which is pretty cool.

    So is Roon a music library front-end? Sorry for all the questions, last time I had "software" was during my SQBox days. The Oppo has a built in interface which works with my ipad.

    Yeah that pretty much sums it up... It can also integrate supported networked devices for a whole house (& Backyard B) ) music solution. I don't use my Oppo's for music and would have to check if supported by Roon

    Pretty sure the 203 & 205 can be used as a Roon endpoint. Not sure about the 103/5.

    ..can do a lot of business on the ground :)

    Yeah, we know. You and Tom have a lot in common it appears. :p :p :D :D

    Yes we do. We both drive ridiculous amounts of miles in a day, working the entire time.

    The Bluesound Node doesn't sound that good to me at all, I know. I have one. BUT, hook it up to a decent DAC and the Quality comes very close to CD quality. The only difference I notice is a little bit of mid-bass suckout. Like someone used an EQ to lower the signal of the mid-bass. Other than that, with the Musical Fidelity Tri-Visat tubed DAC I have it paired with? One would be VERY hard pressed to find any difference between a CD and the Bluesound Node.

    I love Tidal but the MQA has to go through the Node. Sorry but it sounds better through the DAC, so MQA is a waste for me.

    Steve, no it does not. You can create your own "genre" of music though. I have discovered many a new artist using this.

    Tom
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Cool, thanks for the info. I would definitely be running the Node 2 thru my Benchmark DAC2.

    Get the free Tidal trial, toss it aside if you don't like it.
