NUCLEUS: THE CENTER OF YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION

Roon Labs defines the problem for today’s music lovers well: “In the transition from physical to digital media, something has been lost. We have more convenience, but no feeling of excitement or engagement.” Before the digital revolution music engaged almost all human senses. Holding a twelve-inch record created anticipation and connection. Album art and liner notes provided visual and mental engagement. The musical experience was rich with engagement, inspiration, and wonder. Here is how Roon Labs graphically explains the problem.

THE BEST WAY TO EXPERIENCE ROON

Roon Labs wants to help music lovers and audiophiles recover the magical mystery tour music provided. First, Roon created software to use the web. Roon software became a music lover must. Their app uses the web to create an engaging experience. Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews, lyrics, and concert dates, and makes connections between artists, composers, performers, conductors, and producers. What you get is a searchable, surfable magazine about your music.

INTRODUCING THE ROON NUCLEUS MUSIC STREAMING NETWORK

Music lovers listen to music in many ways these crazy digital days. The new Roon Nucleus provide music lovers and audiophiles with a magic wand to tie laptops, smartphones, pads, stereos, Tidal, Sonos, and Bose home audio systems into a coherent, engaging, magical musical mystery tour. Roon is smart too. Their hardware/software combination learns as you listen, engage, and search for music. Got to love a truly smart device that becomes more intuitive about YOU the more you use it.

ROON AS MULTI-ROOM MUSIC MASTER

Roon integrates Airplay and other wireless speakers (listed below) or Apple TV. Sonos speakers show up as “system output” for example (see example below). It’s easy to send music from your Tidal subscription or library to any connected speaker anywhere in your home. There is a caveat. Components that share the same protocols can be linked together. Roon can link Sonos or Airplay-compatible but not both simultaneously. Sonos speakers can’t be linked to Apple TV since different protocols are used. Roon Nucleus Sound Quality by Room, Speaker or Listener

ROON NUCLEUS = AUDIOPHILE’S DREAM

The Roon Nucleus is an audiophile’s dream. The Nucleus customizable EQ means sound can be tuned for each speaker, room or even listener’s preferences. Audiophiles obsessed with hearing the best sound will find Roon’s new music master irresistible. ROON NUCLEUS FOR YOU? As is true for so many high-end audio questions answering if Roon is perfect for you depends. Roon will be a great addition for: Music lovers who miss their albums. Tidal subscribers or those who use HDTracks or something similar. Those who want to stream the best quality sound to your wireless music system. Families with different levels of music and sound quality passion. Audiophiles who can hear the difference between one EQ setting and another. Multi-device listeners who want help playing music anywhere and on many devices.

WHAT IS ROON?

Roon is a music management and listening solution that takes a very different approach to interact with your music. Instead of seeing a spreadsheet-like view of your music (as with iTunes and almost all other media systems), Roon provides a very rich non-list based experience, using credits, artist relationships, genres, lyrics, concert/tour dates, artwork, and more to allow for an informative navigation and exploration of your library. Roon manages digital music files collected on hard drives and networked storage. It can also watch your iTunes library, and optionally integrate with the music streaming service TIDAL. Roon cleans up your music library, upgrades the metadata associated with your music, and provides a user interface that is far richer than anything else out there. Roon makes music exploration and discovery both informative and fun. Roon provides no-compromise audio perfection. Bit-perfect playback of lossy and lossless file formats, including high-resolution audio content (PCM and DSD). Additional conveniences such as crossfading and volume normalization make it suitable for both concentrated listening sessions as well as social events. Roon manages your audio renderers (the things that make sound). Whether they be built-in sound devices, like your laptop's audio output, a USB connected DAC, or even networked audio devices. Roon is an application suite that must be installed. It is not a website. It runs on Macs, Windows PCs, and Tablets, Linux PCs, Android Tablets, Apple iPads, and iPhones. Support is provided on the Community Site, and membership details and configuration are provided on the Roon website. Roon uses your music files, Internet Radio streams, and content from the TIDAL streaming music service, but doesn't come with any music. The Roon software is constantly being improved and updates are always free of charge to licensed users.
