JBLSDP75 roon ready?

Is the JBL SDP75 Roon ready?

Well it is not mentioned in the spec nor is it on this list, so I guess not. Why did you think it might be? There is always the possibility it may be Roon Ready at some future time, but that is a question for JBL to answer, not Roon. Looks like a very impressive piece of kit though.

I thought it would be because it’s essentially a Trinnov Altitude 32 with essentially the same software, but I guess if JBL didn’t license it with Roon it can’t be Roon Ready…

In that case I would email JBL and ask them about their plans. Post the answer back here when you get it. I can’t see why they would remove a feature unless they needed the room for features of their own. You would expect they would use the same software image but with their own branding added.

Hello @Lon_Goldstein1 & @Anthony_Bates,

The JBL SDP-75 is Roon Ready. We are currently acquiring assets from JBL to include on our Device Matrix and Partner page, but the device itself is certified.

Great news! Why do companies not state Roon Ready on their websites? Could lose them a sale…

Ok that’s good to hear so I’m still puzzled why the JBL SDP75 does not show up as a Roon Ready device, it shows on my network but not in Roon anywhere under audio setup

Does it need enabling at the JBL end first?

Hello @Lon_Goldstein1,

Here’s a link to the instructions on how to enable Roon Ready on the Trinnov series. I do not have the SDP-75 on hand to tell you if the steps to enable Roon Ready functionality are different, but I do know that the devices share many things in common. If these instructions are not fit for the JBL SDP-75, I recommend reaching out to JBL support for further assistance.
