With the rollout of ARC and Roon 2.0 we’ve received a few questions about using Roon Core in offline mode.
Due to the enhanced features of Roon 2.0 your core requires active internet access. In previous Roon Software versions, you could utilize Roon for approximately 30 days in offline mode before connection to our servers was needed.
A 2.0 Roon Core has no such period. Active connectivity is a requirement for 2.0, regardless of whether you decide to use ARC or not.
You must stay on Roon 1.8 Legacy if you need offline Core access.
We’ll update our Help Center resources soon to clarify this change. Thank you for your enthusiasm and appreciation for Roon 2.0!
