Roon ready, Roon tested

New devices with Roon certificate

The choice of Roon-capable streamers and DACs grows once more: ELAC's all-in-one preamplifier Alchemy DDP-2 (photo) supports Roon's proprietary RAAT protocol for streaming over the home network and received the "Roon ready" certificate.

Also the Streaming Bridge X5 MKII from Opera-Consonance can now adorn itself with the "Roon ready" logo. USB DACs that have been checked for optimal Roon compatibility, on the other hand, receive the "Roon tested" certificate. These include the McIntosh C53 preamplifier as well as Edge A, Edge NQ and CXN (V2) from Cambridge Audio. The latter two were also tested for Roon compatibility via Chromecast. The same applies to 9 Onkyo, Pioneer and Integra AV receivers: they are correctly recognized as Chromecast devices by the Roon software and have been awarded the "Roon tested" certificate. Actually, all Chromecast components should work together with the Roon software, but experience has shown that this is not always optimal - which is why the certification makes sense.
