What is Roon?
A whole new way to experience your music:
Roon reshapes the way you browse and explore music. Powered by rich metadata, Roon’s interface invites you on a new journey of musical discovery every time you log in. Your music library becomes a starting point on a vast map of performers, composers, influences, and genres. You can step off in any direction - following the connections surrounding the music you love to reveal exciting new finds, and unearth long-forgotten favorites. You can delve even deeper through lyrics, artist photos, bios, reviews and tour dates - and continue the journey with insanely good recommendations.
Listen anywhere, on all your gear:
Roon allows you to play your music - both files and streaming content from TIDAL and Qobuz - on thousands of Roon Ready, Airplay, Chromecast, and USB devices, all controlled by one app. For those who want to use Roon on the move, the new Roon ARC app lets you access and play your entire Roon music library directly from your phone, whether that's driving to work or visiting friends.
Flawless playback. Everywhere, everytime:
Roon is built to ensure your music sounds perfect - wherever you are, every time you hit play. Roon guarantees the best possible sound quality from every piece of audio gear you own or use - offering bit-perfect playback, exhaustive format support and powerful DSP for a fully customizable and flawless listening experience. From headphones to your home hi-fi, and everything in between.
With the introduction of Roon 2.0, everywhere will feel like home. Whether you’re in your car, at work, or traveling, you’ll have access to your library of artists, albums, playlists, and tags, and you’ll be able to discover more on the go, right from your phone.
We’ve built a brand new app called Roon ARC, which is free for all Roon subscribers. It’s designed from the ground up to be reliable, even when your connection may not be, for example when you’re on a 3G mobile network.
While it’s completely new, Roon ARC will feel very familiar, because its user interface is based on the Roon apps you already use. Roon ARC connects to your Roon Core over the air, giving you access to all your files and streaming content no matter where you are. If you have files in your music library, you can think of Roon 2.0 as a personal streaming service, powered by your Roon Core.
At times that you’re not connected, like on a plane, Roon ARC lets you store files from your music library on your phone, for browsing and listening offline.
Along with additional enhancements, like native support for Apple silicon, Roon 2.0 brings an amazing music experience to more people, on more platforms. And Roon ARC truly gives you all your music, everywhere you go.
Ratings and Reviews
Poor app for a great system
I have been using Roon to manage my music for a coupleof years now and havebeen waiting for this app to improve. Unfortunately despite the Roon system being absolutely awesome, , this app is practically unuseable for anyone with vision issues. As a person with limited vision I have to rely on the iOs accessibilty Zoom feature to navigate on my ipad. This works fine with every app except the Roon app.
Using Zoom in standalone versions of Tidal Nd Qobuz is fine but when accessing them through the Roon interface it isimpossible to use zoom. It is also impossible to use the zoom feature on most of the Roon apps search and scroll features. The problem is the apps touch sensitivity, which is so sensitive to touch when the screen is zoomed thatit is not possible to operate the app.
Thisproblem appears to be specific to this app, as all other apps react to the zoom and touch actions perfectly.
I would love for the Roon User Interface testers to try using the accessibility zoom and touch actions to see if they can operate their app. I have been using these features for many yearsand this app is the only one that seems to have this issue.
It’s long past the time that thiswas addresse
This Roon system is really an amazing service. I installed the core on my Windows 10 HTPC since it has an SSD for the index and metadata. They don’t suggest installing on a NAS which was my first thought since I have a Synology unit because the interface will be sluggish on a regular spinning disk. It found my NAS which is where I have my music files saved after I typed in the path and credentials. It indexed my entire music library in a few minutes and pulled metadata from the file names and stored image artwork. Really amazing. It found and properly configured my USB DAC to 24 bit 192 kHz. It offers wasapi output for bit perfect playback. It will also decode tidal MQA which means I don’t need a MQA capable DAC saving me hundreds. The user interface is easy to understand and pulls details for more well known artists sometimes for each album like a couple of paragraphs describing the album. As a bonus I can also stream my local radio stations and one of my favorite EDM stations SomaFM. This is really an amazing technology and I can now sit on my balcony and control my music without having to be in front of the HTPC with my keyboard and mouse. Now I can just use my iPad to control playback from anyplace. Only integration I would like to see added is Sirius XM as I listen to a lot of their Symphony Hall channel. Would highly suggest Roon if you’re into HiFi or currently use Foobar.
Best way to navigate one’s music collection
Since the first time Roon was available, I fell in love with it’s interface. I like the way it reports on the DACs, streamers status. Now with the interface updates with a better playback experience, use of more Roon ready devices, addition of iPhones and iPads interfaces plus to crown their updates; Chromecast and MQA compatibility. It’s been a truck load of enjoyable added features. The software has been extensively enhanced and it just gets better with age. Just a warning if your Core is at the latest, make sure you load the latest release to your other devices. The Audio settings will crash your app otherwise. To be honest, with all of the plethora of software programs available out there, specially the ones related to Audio, this one is worth every penny, you won’t be disappointed. I would suggest you build your Core on Intel NUC using fast memory, PCIe M.2 drive for holding Roon Core and attached USB 3 drives for music storage, with simple Windows desktop operating system (Win 10 home or Professional) and you’ll be running trouble free with future proofing your storage. For me it has made Roon rock solid. If you’re like me with a sizable music library, this is one of the best ways to tame it.
