We’re ending this summer with the exclamation point it deserves! August was an exciting month that gave us 6 new Roon Ready devices from 6 unique Roon partners, each bringing something different to the table. Check out these offerings from Ayon Audio, CH Precision, ELAC, EMM Labs, MBL, Mytek, and Waversa.
Ayon S-10 II
Three years in the making, the Ayon S-10 II is the much-anticipated follow up to the original S-10 network player. The updated model expands on the modular concept design with built-in Roon Ready streaming technology, an analog preamp, a new dual mono DAC, and an updated PCM to DSD converter.
CH Precision C1 D/A Controller
There’s no better indulgence than the newly Roon Ready CH Precision C1 Digital to Analog Controller. This sophisticated piece of Swiss engineering supports DSD256, PCM content up to 32-bit / 384kHz, and its fully modular architecture allows for up to three input boards.
A veteran of the Roon Partner Programs, ELAC is back again — this time with the DS-A101-G WiFi Streaming Integrated Amplifier. This Roon Ready amplifier delivers on both convenience and value with built-in WiFi support and a modest price point, making it a strong option for a number of different applications.
EMM Labs NS-1
It’s always exciting to welcome new partners to our partner programs, and Canadian manufacturer EMM Labs is no exception. The NS-1 Network Streamer is their first (of hopefully many!) Roon Ready offerings. It supports 24-bit/192kHz PCM, DSD64, and MQA with AES, Toslink, and Optilink outputs.
MBL N31 CD-DAC
If you still like to collect CDs, look no further than the MBL N31 CD-DAC. Now sold with an optional Roon Ready network module, the N31 allows you to seamlessly switch between your CD and digital collections. It also includes a 4-path D/A converter and supports up to 24-bit/192kHz PCM and DSD64.
Mytek Brooklyn Bridge
Introducing the Roon Ready Mytek Brooklyn Bridge! The Brooklyn Bridge is the same Brooklyn DAC+ we all know and love, but now with a built-in network connector and Roon Ready streaming technology.
Not in the market for a full-fledged network player? The Waversa WStreamer is a pint-sized Roon Ready network bridge with USB and SPDIF outputs, allowing you to turn any USB DAC into a wireless endpoint.
