Five further ARCAM products and two JBL Synthesis processors have received Roon Ready certification from Roon Labs.
ARCAM has confirmed ‘Roon Ready’ status for five of its models: the AVR10, AVR20, and AVR30 AV receivers; the AV40 AV processor; and SA30 class G intelligent amplifier.
JBL Synthesis has also announced its own Rood news as Roon Ready and Roon Tested status has been awarded for the SDP-55 AV processor and the SDR-35 Class G AV receiver.
Roon Ready status exclusively applies to network devices that have Roon’s streaming technology built in and means that these devices transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration, to deliver bit-perfect audio.
The five ARCAM models have been certified by Roon Labs, working with the ARCAM engineering team, to provide the highest level of quality and performance in network streaming, say the companies. To certify as Roon Tested device, a product must also work over USB, HDMI, AirPlay, Google Cast and other protocols.
Again, the makers underline that all five ARCAM models have been profiled by the Roon engineers, alongside the ARCAM engineers, to ensure simple setup and effortless daily use.
As a result, ARCAM says this fivesome now offers even greater value and performance to existing, and new, users. Roon Ready status further ups the ante, bringing Roon’s multi-room abilities and its unified music library to the fingertips of users of the AVR10, AVR20, AVR30, AV40, and SA30.
To ensure that models are running the latest Roon certified software, existing AVR 10/20/30 and AV40 users should run ARCAM Software v1.46, while SA30 users should check for ARCAM Software V867.
The JBL pair has also been certified by Roon Labs, working with the JBL Synthesis engineering teams, to provide the highest level of quality and performance in network streaming.
JBL says this duo already offers quite extraordinary levels of performance and feature listings as both models embrace 16-channels of native processing, Dolby ATMOS, DTS:X 3D, Auro 3D, IMAX Enhanced, Dirac Live, Logic16, Network Streaming, Dante, with the SDR-35 adding 7 x 100w of Class G amplification.
The addition of Roon Ready status opens up the world of Roon to JBL SDP-55 and SDR-35 customers. To get the best from Roon, users of the JBL SDP-55 and SDR-35 should ensure that their machines are running software v1.46.
