Sound United LLC announces that selected (59 in total) Denon and Marantz products have been certified as ‘Roon Tested’.
This ‘Roon Tested’ certification rolled out by Sound United enables music lovers to seamlessly stream music from Roon server or Roon core devices to 59 Denon and Marantz products for a visually rich and user-friendly listening experience. “A crucial aspect of the listening experience is that you learn more about your favorite artists, songwriters and bands. It makes the music more intimate and vibrant,” said Brendon Stead, Senior Vice President of Product Development, Sound United. “In the past, this intimacy was provided by record or CD covers and was lacking in digital online music. Roon helped pioneer this kind of experience in the world of streaming music. We are very happy that Denon and Marantz are now ‘Roon Tested’ so that our enthusiastic listeners can continue to discover more about the music they love”
Cross-platform music ecosystem
Using credits, artist relationships, genres, song lyrics, concert/tour dates, artwork and more, Roon adds a new dimension of music exploration to user libraries. By merging Roon Tested devices from Denon and Marantz with local digital music files and high-resolution streaming services such as TIDAL and Qobuz, listeners get a cross-platform networked music ecosystem with server apps for Roon Nucleus, Mac, Windows and Linux. Operation is managed through apps for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android, with network output for audio to any Roon Ready, Roon Tested, AirPlay, Chromecast, Mac, Windows, iOS or Android device on the network.
“We’re delighted to have worked with the Sound United team to ensure Roon’s best possible experience with dozens of Denon and Marantz products. Few audio brands have such a legendary history as Denon and Marantz, and we’re honored to be part of their future,” said Rob Darling, Directory of Strategy at Roon Labs.
TIDAL and Qobuz
Another advantage of the Roon interface is the unique approach to TIDAL and Qobuz streaming integration. Now Denon and Marantz users can enjoy their personal content libraries seamlessly merged with their high-resolution streaming favorites, so searches and playlists will contain content from both sources. Roon offers a 14-day free trial of the service. Read more at Roonlabs.com.
