Article description

The Roon Labs software and app control is now perfectly complemented by the Nucleus music server optimized for the roon core.

Roon Labs has created a completely new way to discover your music with this music server system. Not only does Roon make sure your digital music collection is perfectly rendered, but it also makes playback on different streaming players simple and simple. Whether you store your music on your computer's hard drive, on portable media like USB sticks or on a network hard drive, or like using online streaming services like TIDAL or Qobuz, Roon brings all that music to a music archive.

You decide what is played based on genre, mood or specifically by search function. Roon knows the mood of each song and, if you like, plays your own radio station - playing only the music you like. You'll love how Roon is your music archive. The app for desktop, iOS and Android is the reference for a modern user interface. Missing or poorly resolved cover art is a thing of the past. By aligning with the world's best and most comprehensive music database, all albums are presented correctly and visually appealing with a wealth of advanced information. You want to know on which albums the drummer of Dream Theater still plays? Roon finds them all. In the search results you will find all the tracks from your local music archive - and all hits found in the databases of the TIDAL and Qobuz streaming services.

Many music streamers are already roon-ready. And there are more and more. But even the streaming players you already have can serve Roon. All Sonos players, AirPlay devices, Squeezebox clients, and any streamer that supports Google's Chromecast are recognized and can be used as an endpoint. Gone are the days when you needed a variety of apps for different zones - Nucleus by Roon serves them all. To further enhance the sound of your system, Nucleus even gives you the ability to use equalizer to compensate for the effects of space - or to adjust the sound as you like it.

All that takes a lot of computing power - Nucleus has it. Equipped with fast processors, it can effortlessly master all the tasks Roon has to offer. This ensures that the operation is fast and fluid at all times and that the sound is at the best possible level.

All of your CDs can rip Nucleus for you and import them to the optional internal memory or attached USB media. Any CD/DVD/Blu-Ray drive is suitable for this. Thanks to Roon's intelligent database, the metadata of the imported albums is absolutely perfect.

DSP capability: all DSP functions available in the PCM domain. Certain combinations of functions using DSD source or destination formats, upsampling, or multichannel processing may not be possible.

What is Nucleus?

Nucleus is the center of your Roon music system. It’s the housekeeper, the traffic cop, and the brain that takes care of the music in your life. Using Nucleus, Roon manages all your music – on hard drives, NAS, and streaming content – and allows you to play it on all the audio devices around your home. Nucleus is the best way to run Roon, at any price.

Just plug Nucleus into your network, connect your hard drives, download Roon remote apps (iOS, Android, macOS, Windows) and you’ll be ready to play music using a wide variety of audio devices, including AirPlay, Sonos, Roon Ready, Devialet, KEF, Meridian, Squeezebox, and a huge variety of USB DACs.

Aside from being a powerful, fanless music server, what sets Nucleus apart is that it’s powered by Roon OS – a fast and lightweight operating system optimized to do just one thing: browse and play music. Roon is a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform built to the exacting standards of audiophiles, so it offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel playback, and signal path display.

Nucleus requires a Roon account with a valid subscription, which you can purchase directly from Roon Labs.

Roon transforms the experience of browsing music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable, searchable digital magazine about your collection.

And Roon finds all the same links between your personal files and the millions of tracks available on TIDAL, so you can start with the music you know, then explore and discover new music from the world beyond your collection.

In addition to music browsing, Roon is a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform built to the exacting standards of audiophiles. It offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel playback, and signal path display.

Roon plays to an number of different types of devices on your home network – Roon Ready, AirPlay, Sonos, Squeezebox, and Meridian – and can be controlled from Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.

Please note the following:

We do not provide support for the Roon software. If you have any questions, please contact the provider's hotline. A hard drive inserted into the 2.5" slot must be formatted for use with the Nucleus. All data will be deleted. Therefore, create a backup in advance.
