Innuos 1.4.4 Update - Sound better and Roon Experimental Mode

I was part way listening to an album (so had a good baseline) clicked the Innuos web interface and spotted the 1.4.4 update, didn’t get any owner’s notification.

First things first listening to the same album (i will be asking Innuos) but it sound allot more detailed, bass a tad lighter, mid range more dominant.

Secondly the reason for the post appears the guys at Innuos have updated the Roon integration and experimental for better stability.

Would be interesting to hear from Innuos owners @Filipe
