Roon Ready

Roon Ready

Roon Ready functionality allows for the use of Roon’s sophisticated digital music management software. Roon transforms the experience of browsing music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surf-able, searchable digital magazine about your collection. And Roon finds all the same links between your personal files and the millions of tracks available on TIDAL and Qobuz, so you can start with the music you know, then explore and discover new music from the world beyond your collection. In addition to music browsing, Roon is a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform built, to the exacting standards of audiophiles. It offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM up-sampling, and signal path display.
