Roon continues to expand its Roon Ready compatibility, having added more than 100 new Roon Ready and Roon Tested devices, with 40 new brands having submitted their products for certification. This includes key product ranges and new launches from notable audio manufacturers, including Arcam, Astell & Kern, Cambridge Audio, and JBL.
Roon now works with close to 200 audio brands, including Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Devialet, KEF, Harman, McIntosh, and Naim Audio, and supports over a thousand individual products, from network streamers to DACs, wireless speakers, all-in-one systems, and AV receivers ranging from $100 all the way up to $100,000.
Recent announcements about lossless and high-resolution streaming from Apple Music and others have kindled new interest in high-quality audio, says Roon. For listeners who want to go beyond their mobile phone with Bluetooth headphones, Roon provides a large, high-performance ecosystem for listening to high resolution music on the widest range of audio equipment.
In addition to Roon Ready products, there are hundreds of Roon Tested products that bring the Roon experience to the rest of your home, including support for Sonos, AirPlay, and Google Cast streaming devices, as well as USB and HDMI receivers and DACs.
With its user interface and growing feature set (as evidenced by the recent Roon 1.8 update) along with support for high-res PCM, DSD, and MQA digital audio file formats, Roon works with the highest level of performance, says the company.
What is Roon? It’s an engaging way to browse, organize, and listen to music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable digital magazine. Roon is also a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform. It offers features such as bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel support, and Signal Path display.
