Roon brings all of your music together, files and streams, in one easy to use interface, and provides an immersive experience tailored for everyone in your home. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a 360º-view of your music collection. Filter and sort virtually any music in Roon by performer, producer, composer, label, and a wide variety of other parameters.

Roon plays all of your music on every device:
Roon connects your entire digital music library to the gear through which you choose to play it, offering seamless interoperability. It joins the disparate dots of your listening ecosystem and gives you the convenience to control everything in a single app.
With Roon, you are not confined to a single brand family, but rather it integrates all of your disparate audio gear with support for thousands of Roon Ready, AirPlay, Chromecast, and USB devices. Roon also allows you to enjoy your music everywhere with multi-room playback on every platform or device.
Get the best possible sound quality from your audio gear:
Anytime you play music through the Roon app, Roon works as a conduit that ties all of your inputs (i.e., music files and streaming services, such as TIDAL and Qobuz) and outputs (i.e., streamers and speakers) under one app, dramatically streamlining and optimizing the signal path and sound quality. With bit-perfect playback, exhaustive format support and powerful DSP, Roon gets the best possible sound quality from your audio gear. It is also the world’s only end-to-end MQA (high-resolution streaming) support, even those without MQA-capable hardware.
Roon lets you rediscover old favorites and find new music you love. Explore the world of music as you listen, precisely tailored to your tastes.
Ratings and Reviews
Decent, but lots to fix
The look & feel, functionality and design is great, but strongly hampered by crashes and a lack of true multi-tasking. This makes it far more frustrating to use than it should be - especially because when it works, it’s wonderful. I’m subscribed and really hope to see this app reach its potential.
Will need to get serious eventually
I’m glad the enthusiastic amateurs of Roon persist with updating their app and underlying system but it is quite Mickey Mouse. Current update promises chromecast support but they’ve obviously not sought google approval and so, surprise surprise, it doesn’t work. Ditto for airplay on Sonos. That’s not even out of beta on Sonos’ system so why even try?
The bits that work, work well. Parts of the ui remain about 5 years behind the times - queuing up tracks on the fly, for instance. They need to start charging more and hiring more staff.
As a side note, the desktop app regularly becomes “corrupt”, at least in Apple’s eyes and seems to cause issues with syncing your iPhone until you delete it. That’s not really on either.
Very poor experience on iPhone X iOS 13.6
I’m so disappointed with Roon. Crash. The iPad app is a very poor example of usability on iOS and on my iPhone? Crash. May as well not bother. Crash. Crash. Read the forums, reinstalled, cleared the image cache... crash. Raise a support request? Can’t be bothered, given I need to collect a ridiculous list of OS and App versions from my Mac, iPhone and iPad, not to mention network information. Crash. I’m sure I’ll get a comment from Roon support telling me to contact them. Crash. Problem is; I’ve spent more on Roon than any other software product this year and I expect it to work. Crash. If it doesn’t, what are you paying for? Crash.
