Roon is architected differently than most audio systems out there.
Roon consists of a single core and as many controls and outputs as you need. This means you get the same Roon experience whether you’re running on a single PC or on devices around your home.
A Roon system starts with a core – it’s the traffic cop, the housekeeper, and the brains behind the operation.
The core manages your music collection from many sources, and builds an interconnected digital library using enhanced information from Roon.
The core can be your Mac or Windows PC, or a server from one of our hardware partners.
Learn more about why Roon requires a core.
You browse and play music with Roon apps on all your devices – Mac, Windows, iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.
Roon streams to all the audio gear you have, and makes it all play nice together
The simplest configuration is Roon on a computer. Just download the Roon app and you’re ready to go.
