Throughout May, we introduced ten new devices from audio brands such as Arcam, Astell&Kern, Chord Electronics, CanEVER Audio and JBL.
For a full list of our partner brands and every Roon Ready and Roon Tested device, visit our Partners page on the Roon website.
Arcam has added four new devices to their ever-growing lineup in our partner family last month, with the AVR11, AVR21, AVR31, and AV41 all becoming Roon Ready. All of the new models in Arcam’s lineup this month feature modern HDMI 2.1 connectivity, and include DIRAC Live room correction built-in.
The AVR11 and AVR21 use fantastic A/B amplification in their multichannel designs, while the AVR31 offers Arcam’s powerful Class G amp technology onboard. The AV41 is a stellar Preamp/Processor with a host of inputs and full support for Dolby Atmos output.
Roon Ready & Roon Tested
We’re excited to announce two more Astell&Kern have joined the Roon partner family with the Roon Tested AK HC2 and the Roon Ready KANN MAX. The AK HC2 is a USB-C based portable DAC offering HiFi performance in a package that couldn’t be easier to toss in a pocket and bring anywhere you go.
The KANN MAX is the Digital Audio Player in the award-winning KANN series, and features the high power output you’d expect in an even smaller and more convenient package. Of course, the KANN MAX is bolstered by a high end ESS Sabre DAC, and can thank Astell&Kern engineering for its stellar sonic performance.
We would like to join Chord as they welcome the Mojo2 to the Roon family, this being the 12th Chord device to be certified as Roon Tested.
The Mojo2 builds on the foundation made by the much loved, award winning Mojo, taking its familiar pocketable form factor and elevating the experience offered to even greater heights. With improved charging circuitry, a USB-C port, and industry-leading lossless DSP volume capability, the Mojo2 is a remarkable and welcome addition to the Roon Tested lineup.
Last month our brand new Roon Partner, CanEVER Audio, announced that the ZeroUno DAC is now Roon Tested. CanEVER is an Italian HiFi manufacturer, attuned to the joy and energy brought out by the music that we love.
The ZeroUno is a unique tube DAC, and emphasizes accurate reproduction of musicality and the emotive nature of sound in its design. With a jitter-free USB implementation, and an incredibly low noise floor, this DAC is certain to be an exciting addition to any system.
New Roon Ready additions from the exciting JBL Synthesis line include the SDR-35 and SDR-58.
The SDR-35 is a powerful Class G home theater AVR that features DIRAC Live room correction and Dolby ATMOS capability out of the box. The SDR-35’s 16 channel output and with HDR10+ support ensure that capability and home theater performance are top-notch. The SDR-58 is a 16 channel preamp and processor with full support for HDMI 2.1 built-in.
Just like its AVR sibling, the SDR-58 features AirPlay 2 and Chromecast support built in, alongside its DIRAC Live room correction technology. Whether you’re taking advantage of JBL’s Sythesis amplification technology or providing your own, you can’t go wrong with these AV solutions.
