Simply the Best Way to Experience Roon

The Music Player for Music Lovers

Forget everything you know about music players. Music is an experience, and Roon reconnects you with it.

The Problem

In the transition from physical to digital media, something has been lost. We have more convenience than ever, but no feeling of excitement or engagement.

The solution

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.

Roon understands your content

Music lovers have content from many sources, often acquired over years of collecting. Roon identifies your music, then enhances it with the latest metadata.

And this isn’t just for your local files, it works for content from Qobuz and/or TIDAL too!

Roon plays with your gear

Music lovers have all kinds of audio equipment for different kinds of listening. Roon detects these devices and streams the optimal audio resolution to each.

Enjoy your music instead of managing your audio equipment.

“It’s light years beyond any current app.”

MADE BY ROON

The brain behind the entire Roon experience is the Roon Core. Every aspect of Nucleus — hardware, operating system, and software — was developed to provide a silent, high-performance, power-efficient Roon Core, by the same team that created Roon.

SIMPLY THE BEST

Nucleus is the easiest and fastest way to get your Roon system running. No computer or networking skills required. You just take it home, plug it in, and download Roon apps for your mobile devices and computers. Nucleus keeps itself current with automatic updates.

BUILT FOR SOUND QUALITY

Nucleus has no fans, spinning disks, or moving parts of any kind, and its minimal operating system is tuned for delivering high-performance audio. Whether you put it in your listening room, on your desk, or in a rack, you can be confident you will be getting the best sound from any music server.

DEVELOPED WITH INTEL

The rich Roon experience requires modern computing power, and the more the better. We worked with Intel to develop Nucleus to support Roon now and in the future. It has horsepower to spare for large music libraries, multi-room streaming, and DSP.
