Note that if you touch HQPlayer GUI while Roon is connected, Roon will disconnect to avoid fighting with you on HQPlayer control. Not really, it should be largely the same. Some people say HQPlayer sounds better alone, some say vice versa. Probably everybody is right and it just depends on the overall system.How do I display playtime in HQPlayer in Roon?
HQPlayer has multiple options of displaying the playtime, “time”, “remain” and “total remain”. You will want to select the first option of "time" in HQPlayer for the playback bar to properly progress in Roon. An HQPlayer instance can only be controlled by one external piece of software at a time.Is it better to run HQPlayer by itself?
Some people say HQPlayer sounds better alone, some say vice versa. Probably everybody is right and it just depends on the overall system. It shouldn't make any difference, because all the components are loaded to RAM anyway when HQPlayer is started.How long does the trial of HQPlayer last?
HQPlayer’s trial allows you to use the software for 30 minutes at a time for 30 days. Since those interested in HQPlayer will probably have their own music server, I installed Roon Remote, Core, and HQPlayer on one of the fastest PCs on this planet.
