Hi everyone,

We’ve recently released Roon 1.7 (Build 521) which includes changes that should improve this behavior. Please give it this a try and let us know how it goes!

You can read the full release notes here:

The Team at Roon Labs


I wanted to check in with you here to see if the latest Roon build has helped with this behavior, can you please let me know if everything is displaying as expected now?

Are you seeing any other issues with the saturation after the latest build? If so - can you please share a screenshot? Thanks!

Description Of Issue
I recently had my PC fresh install win10 64bit and installed the latest Roon.
I notice the same problem when I use the CPU integrated graphics.
This problem also shows on the other PC at living room running win10 32bit with i5 2400.
These two PCs are using different MBs.

I solve this problem with a used graphic card buying on internet.

  • ASUS GTX970 4G DDR5.
  • MSi HD7750.

With these two cards is fixed the problem, but for a not gaming PC I don’t really want to add a graphics card on it. Advise Please.


Thanks for the additional information but I’m having a bit of trouble understanding here.
Are you still seeing this behavior on your two PCs? The Roon interface is still too dark?
What graphics card is the gaming PC currently using?

With intergrated graphics YES.
With graphics cards NO.
I don’t have gaming PC actually.
Those graphics cards are for Roon not to display too dark.


If you navigate to your Window’s Device Manager from this problematic PC, can you share a screenshot of your Display Adapters information? I am wondering what internal GPU you have and the driver version for it, it is not clear yet.

I appreciate your patience while we’ve been looking into this issue further. We’ve just recently released Roon build 528 which contains a few various graphics-related changes.

Can I please ask that you update to the latest build and let me know if it changes anything with regards to this behavior? Full release notes can be found below:

Thank you!

Sorry for notice this message so late.
I took off the GPU for test .
