Roon elevates your music experience in many dimensions, from rich metadata to integrated streaming services, and from inspired music recommendations to high-resolution home streaming.
Roon goes beyond album art and track titles, to show you what you want to know about the music you love.
There’s more to describing your music than artist, album, and track. Roon finds and displays detailed metadata for your music, including reviews, ratings, recording and release dates, multi-tiered genres, high-resolution artist photos, and lyrics.
People are people, not text fields. In Roon, all types of people – performers, composers, producers, and engineers – appear as links to deep biographical information, allowing you to explore their careers and collaborators.
You know your favorite artists, which makes them the best starting point for discovery. Roon lets you explore connections to their careers, including influences, followers, collaborators, and other related artists and composers.
Classical music doesn’t fit neatly into the artist-album-track structure of pop and rock music. Roon starts with composers, then shows their works, and lists performances, including conductor, ensemble, soloists, recording venue, and date.
With its huge database of lyrics, Roon lets you sing along with millions of songs. They can be displayed as a lyric sheet or synchronized to scroll along with the music that’s playing in real time. Never sing “Sweet dreams are made of cheese” again.
Never miss another concert by a favorite performer. When an artist in your library is on tour, Roon lets you know about it. You can even buy event tickets through Songkick.
Roon Display lets you show what’s playing on your TV using Chromecast, or on any other device with a web browser. Display even supports real-time lyrics, so you can sing along with your favorites.
Roon brings all your files and streams together, and takes the work out of managing them.
Roon automatically identifies your music, corrects any errors, and enhances it with loads of rich information. Roon does this on a regular basis, so your music is always kept up to date without you lifting a finger.
Roon makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Using Focus, you can filter your library using any number of criteria, like “1980s Pop”, “24-bit Jazz recordings”, or even “Beethoven conducted by Herbert von Karajan”.
Roon continuously scans your music folders, so whenever you add new music, you’ll see it immediately. You can also drag and drop music right onto the Roon app to copy it to your Roon system.
All albums have different versions with different track listings, mastering, and audio encoding. Roon shows you all those versions – both in your library and from TIDAL and Qobuz – and lets you highlight your favorite.
Music is often described as belonging to a single genre, but it’s rarely that simple. Roon’s hierarchy features familiar top-level genres (like Jazz, Rock/Pop, and Classical) plus hundreds of subgenres (like Post-Bop, Speed Metal, and Chamber Music).
Combine music files and streaming content in your playlists, or use tags for even more flexibility. Tags can be applied to any artist, composer, album, track, genre, playlist, or even another tag.
You’ll find millions of tracks on TIDAL and Qobuz, but Roon connects you with them.
See all the music stored on your local devices like an internal or USB hard drive, or NAS, plus streaming content from TIDAL and Qobuz. Everything is folded together, so you don’t have to worry about where music is stored.
Roon knows your music, and also how it relates to the rest of the music in the world. The collection you’ve built is always the starting point for exploration in Roon, and it becomes the lens through which you view the world of streaming.
A unified library means you can search all your music at once, without thinking about where it lives. Search for composers, performers, producers, genres, styles, or just about anything else!
Using TIDAL or Qobuz with Roon feels like a shopping spree at a record store. All the streaming content you find is treated like local files in your personal library, so it really feels like you own it.
You’ve collected performances of works by your favorite composers. Because Roon understands classical music, it can show you many more great performances of those compositions from TIDAL or Qobuz.
Powered by Valence recommendation technology, Roon lets you rediscover old favorites and find new ones.
Sometimes you want to hand-pick your playlist, but you can also sit back and let Roon do the work for you. Choose a starting point, and Roon Radio will play a mix of recommended music from TIDAL and Qobuz.
As Roon chooses music for you, just give a thumbs up (or down) to effortlessly put together a playlist. When you find new picks you love, add them to your library for easy access later.
See featured performers, genres, time periods, and labels from your library. Find collaborations between your favorite artists, and rediscover those albums you love but haven’t listened to in years.
Every person in your home has a Roon profile, so everyone keeps their own favorites, playlists, and history. That means everyone gets recommendations tailored for their individual tastes.
More new and reissued music is released every week than ever before. Throughout the app, Roon makes sure you find the music that you don’t want to miss.
Get the best possible sound quality with bit-perfect playback, exhaustive format support, and powerful DSP.
Roon provides no-compromise audio perfection. Its audio engine supports bit-perfect playback of lossless and lossy file formats, including high-resolution audio content like PCM and DSD, in both stereo and multichannel.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s happening to your audio. With Signal Path, Roon gives you clear and precise information about how audio flows through your system, from source media all the way to the speakers.
Enjoy up to 768kHz/32-bit PCM and DSD512 (stereo and multi-channel) in WAV, WAV64, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC (Apple Lossless), DFF, DSF, OGG, MP3, and AAC. If your gear doesn’t support a format, Roon transcodes to play back at the best quality it supports.
A powerful DSP suite helps customize your listening experience, including volume leveling, EQ, upsampling, room correction, convolution, crossfeed, and more. Compatible with PCM, MQA, or DSD content and all supported audio endpoints.
From network streamers to mobile devices, wifi speakers to USB DACs, and smart devices to whole-home audio distribution systems, Roon plays your audio everywhere, at the highest possible sound quality.
MQA core decoding allows anyone – even those without MQA-capable hardware – to experience MQA content. Roon is the only music player that can apply DSP to MQA content while allowing your MQA-capable DAC to render the post-processed stream.
Roon can play audio in one room or all around your home. Play different music in different rooms, or group your rooms together to play the same thing everywhere.
