I have to ask. What is Roon Audio Return Channel (ARC)?

Or Roon Anthem Room Correction (ARC)?

https://www.anthemarc.com/

Roon could not come up with any other name not already in well established use in the AV industry?

Yeah, the name is confusing. To me it reads like Roon ARC is offering room correction.

Even better, look, it is ARC Mobile.

Is that overlap good for either Roon or Anthem?

So what exactly does ARC stand for in Roon?

When “Roon Starfish” was just sitting there waiting to be used? Disappointing. :slight_smile:

It is a name, not an acronym, but if you’d like to suggest something, feel free… maybe it’ll stick! That’s how ROCK was named :slight_smile:

Nope! Naming things is hard.

In the cases you’ve noted, I don’t think there will be any confusion.

I’m surprised Roon Mobile wasn’t used as the name.

Ah, the use of all caps made me think it was an acronym.

I like „audiophile remote control“ or „audiophile remote connection“ :slight_smile:

What does ARC stand for? Can’t find it anywhere.

A vote for Roon Mobile. ARC is meaningless to me and likely many others.

But what if I’m not an audiophile?

Accessible Remote Core.

Though the first word might be different. Active? Available? Addressable! IDK. But I feel good about the Remote Core part.

I have no insider info on this FWIW. But have been thinking about this question for a while.
