Nucleus One music server

Nucleus One pairs high performance with unrivaled affordability, providing a best-in-class streaming experience to Roon users of every budget

NEW YORK — March 19, 2024 — Roon, the world’s most innovative listening experience for music lovers, is excited to announce the release of Nucleus One, the newest addition to the Nucleus music server product line. Nucleus One leverages advances in computer technology, technical design, and manufacturing processes to deliver an attractively priced turn-key device specifically intended for Roon’s library management, music exploration, and multi-room music player software.

Nucleus, long recognized as the first choice of those seeking the best possible server/streamer option for Roon, takes a giant step forward with these new offerings. Nucleus One joins Nucleus Titan, replacing previous Nucleus models with updated hardware and cutting-edge performance — providing effortless setup, rock-solid operation, and stunning design aesthetics to buyers of every budget.

Nucleus One sets a new standard in the Nucleus product line. Comparable in performance to the previous Nucleus, Nucleus One is an affordably priced, dedicated Roon server molded from high-quality polycarbonate with visual characteristics that echo the premium Nucleus Titan. Priced at just $499.99 (U.S.), Nucleus One is the perfect choice for anyone seeking a reliable Roon server that offers a best-in-class music experience at an unrivaled price point.

Features include:

  • The most affordable dedicated Roon server on the market.
  • Delivers Roon OS reliability and performance to all Roon users.
  • Flexible connectivity: two USB-A, and one audio-only HDMI port.
  • Provides space for 2.5” internal SATA drives for up to 8TB library storage capacity.
  • CPU cooling is assisted by a quiet internal fan.
  • Precision molded, modern matte black, high-quality polycarbonate enclosure.
  • Exterior design aesthetics evoke those of Roon’s new flagship Nucleus Titan server.

“In the rare case where one team can control hardware, firmware, operating system, and application software, it’s possible to do amazing things. You can create products that are rock-solid and feature-rich, which provide the foundation of a great user experience. We’ve been lucky enough to do it a few times, starting with the Sooloos system nearly 20 years ago. That product had a five-figure retail price, and we’ve been on a mission ever since to develop something we could recommend to our friends and families. Nucleus One is the culmination of all our experience up to this point: a dedicated Roon server for the price of an off-the-shelf mini PC.” — Enno Vandermeer, Roon founder.
