Over 40 new Roon partner devices announced & new online store launched

Over the last couple of years, we have seen more and more Roon Ready and Roon Tested devices come to market at manufacturers recognise the consumer need for high-resolution audio.

In just the first quarter of 2022, Roon has welcomed over 40 new Roon Ready and Roon Tested devices from over 20 audio brands, including Arcam, Astell & Kern, Cyrus, McIntosh, NAD, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sonus faber, and more.

Roon provides a large ecosystem for listening to high-resolution audio on a wide range of high-performance audio equipment, from wireless speakers to high-end AV receivers.

The company has also launched the Roon Store, a hyper-curated online store dedicated to showcasing the best audio products that work seamlessly with Roon.

Every audio product that achieves Roon Ready or Roon Tested certification goes through hours of rigorous testing and is used daily by the Roon team, who have become experts in the products that work best with Roon. The new online store is an ideal place for Roon enthusiasts to visit to find out more about Roon Ready and Roon Tested products.

“Over time, we’ve received more and more questions from users about which products have this or that feature, which would be better for a bedroom vs a patio, or which offers the best value at a particular price point,” said Enno Vandermeer, Roon’s founder and CEO. “All that interest has inspired us to think about how to provide a new service for Roon users. Shopping for audio gear online isn’t especially easy or fun, so we decided to do for the audio shopping experience what Roon itself did for the music browsing and discovery.”

More than just a list of Roon partner devices, the Roon team has created its own content for the online store, including new photography, video tutorials, and insights about the features and performance of each product. The goal is to make sure customers have everything they need to get the best out of their Roon-certified audio product.

The Roon Store launched with a limited selection of products in a single category: the all-in-one Roon Ready speaker, featuring models from Bluesound, Devialet, and Dutch & Dutch – with more coming soon. Roon’s own Nucleus and Nucleus Plus music servers are also available from the store.
