Roon Labs is working with an ever-growing list of Roon Partners to make integrating music servers, DACs and other audio gear as easy as possible. Partner companies submit their digital-to-analog converters, network players, and media servers to undergo a strenuous certification process that can last anywhere from two weeks to a full year, depending on the partner's level of SDK expertise.
During this process, products are checked for compatibility with Roon software under extreme stress and demanding circumstances. Testing doesn't stop until the device is completely debugged and technicians believe it to fully support Roon's streaming software.
Once certification is complete, devices earn their place in one of three categories:
- Roon Ready Network Players
- Roon Tested DACs
- Roon Core Servers
