Since its introduction in 2015, Roon has, they say, ‘transformed the experience of browsing music’. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates and composers are located automatically within the software and then interconnected by links to build a searchable digital magazine for your music collection. Roon finds all the same links between your personal files and the tracks available on TIDAL, so you can start with the music you know, then explore and discover new music.

In addition to music browsing, Roon is also a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform. It offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multi-channel playback and signal path display. Roon plays to a number of different types of devices on your home network and can be controlled from a dedicated control app.

Roon Labs have seen a need to enter the hardware market to produce the server for their software; the Nucleus (SRP £1,500.00) and Nucleus+ (£2,500.00). Both models look and function in the same way, with the only difference being the feature abilities of the Intel® Core™ i3 (Nucleus) and i7 (Nucleus+) processors employed. Just plug Nucleus or Nucleus+ into your network, connect your hard drives, download the Roon remote app (available for iOS, Android, macOS or Windows) and you’ll be ready to play music using a wide variety of audio devices. Both the Nucleus and Nucleus+ are distributed in the UK by Henley Audio.
