Some of you may have noticed that a few audio products out here do some special in-app stuff when you hook them up to Roon. This is mostly in signal path and the footer, but we will do more and more “special” things with these devices.
We call this hardware manufacturer program “Roon Tested”. We need to have a working relationship with the manufacturer to make this happen.
The idea is that we test various manufacturers’ audio endpoint with Roon, with a much more rigorous test than any normal user would. The manufacturer will also test Roon with their product, and make sure we don’t do anything bad to their endpoint.
Then, as a consumer confidence builder, we can both co-market that each others products are known to work well together. On top of that, Roon can identify the product, support extra features, provide links to the vendor website and the product manuals, etc…
If your product is not showing up as “Roon Tested”, you really must contact your manufacturer and tell them to get it certified. We only can certify what we have in our possession. Feel free to link them to this post.
One big bonus feature for certification, is that in the future, we’ll have some bonus features, like MQA hi-res playback, for certified devices.
