The ultimate music expert:
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 goes far beyond the “algorithmic recommendations” you’ll find in mass-market streaming products. Using its deep metadata and an understanding of over 100,000 expert listeners from Valence, Roon surfaces and suggests music with uncanny sensitivity and insight.

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 is essential for my music life, and this app generally works well. Love being able to use Android device as an end point. Recently however I have found it has a lot of stability issues with the app; it will either hang or close itself (maybe Android kills it when it hangs). The phone version also doesn't play well with the Room Radio functionality (tablet version is better at this).

Roon is a fine music player but offers no wake on lan. So you can't play music until you physically wake your computer. This is very annoying and there is no simple work around. It would be nice to pick up where you left off when switching Roon to a different device, but unfortunately you have to search for the same music you're playing to have it transfer to a different room.

Roon was fabulous until version 1.8 came out. Now everything is buggy. I just want to listen to my music and the remote hangs. I have to force quit the remote several times before it does anything (this is a regular problem from several devices, not intermittent)... and when I'm unlucky, there are other random problems that require me to reboot the core or deauthorize the core to get things working again. The new features are not worth the hassle...

What's new

Roon 1.8 has a completely new look and feel, but the differences are more than skin deep. Roon uses its deep metadata and an understanding of over 100,000 expert listeners from Valence, to suggest music with uncanny sensitivity and insight. In 1.8, Roon’s Focus feature goes beyond your library, giving you a 360º- view of artists, genre, performers, and composers. Classical recordings also have a new layout, designed to make it easy to find the classical recordings you’re looking for.
