Roon Ready Audio Devices

 

Partner Program Offers Roon Certification for Audio Brands

Roon was created to be compatible with a broad spectrum of audio devices. At the end of the day, "Roon plays with everything." Through Roon's Partner Program, some items undergo a certification process and have Roon Software embedded in them. Others don't contain Roon Software but are rigorously tested to ensure compatibility with Roon. Beyond that, Roon also plays to thousands of USB, AirPlay, and Chromecast devices.

Roon Ready Audio Devices

The Roon Ready program was created to support the highest levels of audio performance in the industry without sacrificing the simplicity, reliability, and flexibility expected of modern networked lifestyles.

Each Roon Ready device integrates a customized version of Roon’s RAAT streaming technology for seamless integration with Roon. Every Roon Ready player is certified by Roon to guarantee the same amazing experience, regardless of its manufacturer, its price, or its features.

Systems like Airplay, Chromecast, Sonos, or Spotify Connect offer great experiences for basic daily operation, but they don’t support the sample rates, formats, and DSP functions of high-performance audio devices. Roon Ready devices do not limit your experience of performance audio. Certified devices currently on the market offer:

  • High-Res PCM sample rates up to 768khz

  • DSD rates up to Quad Speed

  • MQA Full Decoding

  • PCM Upsampling

  • DSD Upsampling

Roon understands all of the staples of the high-performance audio experience and seamlessly integrates them so you can just enjoy the music. Additionally, the Roon software architecture ensures every Roon Ready devices delivers the best performance it is capable of offering:

  • All decoding and file management is done in the Roon Core. The receiving device only copies a PCM stream from the network interface and plays it back out of its buffer.

  • Bit-perfect playback and transmission of all audio streams.

  • The receiving device is its own clock master, so it is always in full control of its audio performance.

Roon Ready devices are automatically discovered by Roon. As part of their development, they report their capabilities so that Roon can send content at the highest audio quality they can support, regardless of the file type being played. All Roon Ready devices can be grouped for multi-room playback to create a high-performance whole-home audio system, regardless of brands or feature capabilities.

Each Roon Ready device is tested and certified to guarantee it works as expected, and all devices stay in the Roon lab after certification, to be sure Roon can support them if you have any issues or need help with your system. Being Roon Ready means it will all work, so you can enjoy both the best of performance and modern networked technology.

Roon Tested Audio Devices

Roon Tested devices are profiled by the Roon team to ensure easy setup and effortless daily use. The Roon Tested program was created to simplify setup and configuration in the increasingly complex world of networked and computer based digital audio, and to guarantee the best support of the USB, AirPlay, and Chromecast audio hardware that Roon customers use.

Over the last 20 years, file-based playback, computers, streaming services, and networking have given listeners access to all the music in the world. At the same time, advances in consumer digital audio – high-res PCM, DSD, MQA, and upsampling – have transformed the sound quality of even the most modest equipment. This means you can access more music that sounds better, but it can be daunting at first. Roon customers frequently want to know if:

  • their gear will work with Roon;

  • they are getting the best out of it; and

  • they are doing everything right.

All Roon Tested devices are profiled by Roon's QA team so that Roon can identify them and automatically configure its settings to be optimized for those devices. You can simply plug them in and know you will be able to enjoy high-performance sound.
