Hey Roon Community!
Before we get too far into 2023, we’d like to take a moment to thank all of you for the time, expertise, goodwill, and positive energy you dedicate to our small corner of the internet.
Thanks to all of you Roon Community is a great place to hang out, talk music, share Roon tips and tricks, ask and answer questions, help other Rooners, show off our setups, four-legged acoustical treatments, musical instruments, and a whole range of other super cool stuff. We’ve always envisioned Community as a kind of virtual record shop filled with knowledgeable, generous music obsessives, and it’s genuinely exciting to see it grow ever closer to that.
As many of you know, Roon is still a relatively small team. Because of that, we don’t have as much time as we’d like to join your Community conversations regularly. That doesn’t mean we’re not paying attention. We are. Your feedback, enthusiasm, and encouragement have been invaluable to us, and we’re grateful for the time you take to share it. We may not jump in to comment, but we value what you have to say - good and bad.
2022 was a huge year for Roon! We released 34 Roon builds last year and introduced several new features. Roon 2.0 and Roon ARC changed how we use Roon forever by freeing the Roon experience from the confines of our homes and transforming our Roon libraries into bespoke streaming services we can access and enjoy wherever we go.
Other 2022 highlights include
- Integration of additional multi-language editorial content sources for artist bios & album info
- User customization of streaming service and MQA content preferences
- Native Apple Silicon Support
- Native .NET framework on macOS
- Android bit-perfect USB audio implementation in ARC
- Enhanced HQPlayer integration
- Major enhancements to Roon’s Now Playing screen graphic displays
- Enhanced audio analysis of local files
- Expanded Audeze presets for new Audeze headphones models
- Numerous Search enhancements
- A huge, red-letter year for onboarding new Roon Partner devices
We’re genuinely elated and humbled by your overwhelmingly positive response to the new feature additions and are pleased to announce that 2023 has more exciting developments in store! Thank you so much for your continued support, loyalty, and enthusiasm for all things Roon.
We’re thrilled to have you along for the ride!
The Roon Team
