To achieve maximum functionality and the best result when using Cyrus products with the popular Roon software, Cyrus and Roon worked closely together on the implementation.
Chris Hutcheson, Head of Marketing at Cyrus comments as follows: "This is an important step in our mission to bring the modern music consumer a range of products that not only delivers the sound expected of all Cyrus products, but also an up to date user experience that is demanded by our customers."
Roon also commented: "Roon's fundamental goal is to provide a consistently stellar user experience. This goal doesn’t stop at the software...the experience extends all the way down to the audio playback hardware, regardless of manufacturer. As a Roon partner, Cyrus has provided equipment to Roon for testing with a variety of different operating systems and computers, and shared information about its design and capabilities."
Cyrus has a direct relationship with Roon, which means the Roon support team always has several devices available for first line support, according to the two brands. To use Roon on the Cyrus XR products, the latest firmware v1.6 is required.
