INTRODUCING THE ROON STORE
Roon is excited to introduce the Roon Store: a hyper-curated online store dedicated to showcasing the best audio products that work seamlessly with Roon.
Every audio product that achieves Roon Ready or Roon Tested certification goes through hours of rigorous testing and is used daily by the Roon team, who have become experts in the products that work best with Roon. It’s the ideal place for Roon enthusiasts to visit and find out more about their favorite products that are Roon Ready or Roon Tested.
“Over time, we’ve received more and more questions from users about which products have this or that feature, which would be better for a bedroom vs a patio, or which offers the best value at a particular price point. All that interest has inspired us to think about how to provide a new service for Roon users,” said Roon founder and CEO, Enno Vandermeer. “Shopping for audio gear online isn’t especially easy or fun, so we decided to do for the audio shopping experience what Roon itself did for music browsing and discovery.”
The Roon team has also created its own content for the online store, including new photography, video tutorials, and insights about the features and performance of each product. The goal is to make sure customers have everything they need to get the best out of their Roon-certified audio product.
The Roon Store launched with a limited selection of products in a single category: the all-in-one Roon Ready speaker, featuring models from Bluesound, Devialet and Dutch & Dutch – with more coming soon. You can also buy Roon’s own Nucleus and Nucleus Plus music servers from the store.
