Music management and discovery platform Roon has announced over 40 new audio devices have achieved Roon Ready or Roon Tested status in 2022, and has opened an official online store to provide support to platform users.

The Roon Store is dedicated to showcasing the best audio products that work seamlessly with Roon. It’s intended to be a destination for Roon enthusiasts to visit and find out more about the latest products that are Roon Ready or Roon Tested. First into the Roon Store are all-in-one Roon Ready speakers, including models from Bluesound, Devialet and Dutch & Dutch.

Visitors can also buy Roon’s own Nucleus and Nucleus Plus music servers from the store.

“Over time, we’ve received more and more questions from users about which products have this or that feature, which would be better for a bedroom vs a patio, or which offers the best value at a particular price point. All that interest has inspired us to think about how to provide a new service for Roon users,” said Roon founder and CEO, Enno Vandermeer. “Shopping for audio gear online isn’t especially easy or fun, so we decided to do for the audio shopping experience what Roon itself did for music browsing and discovery.”

The Roon team has also created its own content for the online store, including new photography, video tutorials, and insights about the features and performance of each product.

The Roon ecosystem, for listening to high-resolution music, covers a wide range of hardware options, from wireless speakers to AV receivers. New Roon Ready and Roon Tested devices hail from over 20 audio brands, including Arcam, Astell & Kern, Cyrus, McIntosh, NAD, Onkyo, Pioneer and Sonus Faber.

Devices that are Roon Ready include the recently-launched Sonus Faber Omnia all-in-one wireless speaker, the NAD C399 integrated amplifier with DAC, Dutch & Dutch 8c speakers, and the McIntosh RS150 and RS250 powerful wireless speaker systems.

New Roon Tested equipment includes the Audiolab Omnia all-in-one system with integrated CD player, three amplifiers from Cyrus’s new XR series, and 11 A/V receivers in total from Onkyo, Pioneer and Integra – all of which feature Dolby Atmos, HDMI 2.1 and Dirac Live room correction.
