Roon’s been cooking for a long, long, long time. Anticipation has been building, literally for years. I myself made the mistake of leaking that the 8c’s would ‘soon’ be Roon-Ready. It’s a mistake that has been haunting us ever since, and it’s been frustrating for all of you who’ve been waiting for the 8c’s to become Roon-Ready.
What we’re seeing right now, is the result of Roon Labs and Dutch & Dutch not adequately coordinating the release of the Roon Store and the Roon-Ready firmware. The misalignment makes it appear as if we’ve jumped the gun.
The roll-out of Firmware 2.0 is scheduled to start tomorrow. We’ll release it to 8c’s in the field in batches, and if all goes well, everybody will have access to the new firmware before New Year’s.
Merry Christmas guys.
