Cambridge Audio has also fallen for the charms of Roon. Flagship Edge NQ of the brand becomes Roon Ready and also the CXN (V2) gets that predicate.
Cambridge Audio – which has been around for 50 years now – has always adapted to the listening habits of its customers. And apparently the demand for Roon was so great that a firmware update is now available for both the Edge NQ and the CXN (V2) of this British brand.
The Edge NQ is a preamplifier with built-in streaming module. The latter is released with the house’s own Stream-Magic platform, with which you can play just about anything imaginable about network streams. The ready firmware update now adds Roon Ready capabilities.
Quick pairing without hassle
Thanks to ROON-certification for both Cambridge Audio devices mentioned, connecting to Roon (or better: a Roon server) is without any further configuration. And with this, your entire Roon collection is available directly from the device in a simple and straightforward way.
Roon is a system that is particularly popular among audiophiles. Organize, search and play your entire music collection. Ideal if you have a large collection of music files on the NAS, for example! Or of course use a Roon server with built-in storage. So good news for anyone who uses Roon and has either of these two Cambridge Audio players in house.
