[Partnership] Roon partnership please

I know in the past  Spotify partnering with Roon has failed however I feel having the ability to listen to Spotify through Roon would fully complete mine and I'm sure several people's needs having these two wonderful applications integrate. Please reconsider allowing this to happen.

Oh YES please, I am a Roon user, cancelled my Spotify account because it was not supported, and currently have Tidal HiFi subscription and Qobuz on trial.  Spotify would have a place because of its huge library.

I actually can not believe Spotify is not supporting Roon. Spotify's high quality streaming feature via Roon would definitely bring a whole new audiophile community to Spotify.

I would subsribe to Spotify if it could be integrated into Roon. I had Spotify subscription, droped it and moved to Tidal because of Roon.

Spotify + Roon would be so excellent.

 

Spotify's UI is absolute garbage, every time they redesign the look functionality is lost and things get worse. Spotify's app development is a decentralized mess, seriously inconsistent across different platforms; the Android TV app is hands down the worst offender though, its a **bleep** nightmare. 

 

Spotify connect is serviceable but I still end up needing to restart devices and apps half the time to get things rolling. 

 

Roon takes everything I dislike about Spotify and makes it near perfect. The UI is functional and gorgeous. The metadata processing is top-tier. Roon's handling of output devices is exemplary. Roon has very granular settings for just about everything without it being a cluttered, confusing mess. The only downside is you need to provide your own music or use Tidal/Qobuz; I've tried both but their respective catalogs just are not quite as complete as Spotify's, even if they are hifi and in some areas more extensive. 

 

I don't have high hopes for Spotify agreeing to work with Roon, but I have an even lower expectation that Spotify can make their interface even half as nice as Roons.

I love music. I love Spotify. I love Roon though too. Roon is the best platform for music enthusiasts to listen on their home Hi-Fi systems and Spotify is the best platform for streaming music everywhere.

 

As my household gravitated more toward using Roon, we decreased our use of Spotify to the point that I decided to cancel our Spotify Premium subscription recently due to the lack of Roon support. I would resume my Spotify Premium subscription again in a heartbeat if it were available on Roon.

With ITunes shutting down and Apple Music gaining ground Spotify needs to up its game. I have Spotify for years now and I'm overall statisfied.  While I don't own Roon yet I want to. Its everything the ITunes interface should have been.  I can't understand with Tidal on board and a worldwide closing in race with Apple Music that Spotify wouldn't do 2 things to blow past all these services.

1) Lossless music option. I'd gladly pay an up charge to get releases in lossless.  Apple doesn't do it Tidal does.

2) Allow Roon in. Sure perhaps its for audiophiles but with my 2 suggestions you would have the market with us.
