Roon Workshop Day

Roon - the music player for music lovers

“It’s light years beyond any current app.”

Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound Magazine

Join us and Enno Vandermeer Founder/CEO of Roon Labs

previously VP Meridian Audio and with a background in IT and Music

Informal Workshops led by Enno at 11am and 1pm


Expert staff from Henley Audio and OXFORD AUDIO will demonstrate a range of systems all day from 10am to 4pm

Roon Labs exists to connect people to music. We set the standard in the super premium space, got millions of users in the mass market, and now the journey continues.  Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews, lyrics, and concert dates, and makes connections between artists, composers, performers, conductors, and producers.

What you get is a searchable, surfable magazine about your music.

Roon plays with your gear

Music lovers have all kinds of audio equipment for different kinds of listening. Roon detects these devices and streams the optimal audio resolution to each.

Enjoy your music instead of managing your audio equipment.

Roon understands your content

Music lovers have content from many sources, often acquired over years of collecting. Roon identifies your music, then enhances it with the latest metadata.

And this isn't just for your local files, it works for content from TIDAL too!

The problem

In the transition from physical to digital media, something has been lost. We have more convenience than ever, but no feeling of excitement or engagement.

Expert staff from Roon Labs, Henley Audio and OXFORD AUDIO Consultants will demonstrate a range of systems. They will also be happy to advise on getting the very best sound from your own hi-fi and the maximum pleasure from your music collection.

How Roon works

Roon is architected differently than most audio systems out there.

Roon consists of a single core and as many controls and outputs as you need. This means you get the same Roon experience whether you're running on a single PC or on devices around your home.

The Core

A Roon system starts with a core – it’s the traffic cop, the housekeeper, and the brains behind the operation.

PC storage

USB storage

Roon metadata

iTunes library



The core manages your music collection from many sources, and builds an interconnected digital library using enhanced information from Roon.

The core can be your Mac or Windows PC, or a server from one of our hardware partners.

Learn more about why Roon requires a core.

Controlling Roon

You browse and play music with Roon apps on all your devices – Mac, Windows, iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.

Audio outputs

Roon streams to all the audio gear you have, and makes it all play nice together.

control apps



Any Mac or Windows PC can be an output, as can Airplay, Squeezebox, and Meridian network players. For the ultimate in performance audio, use network players from our Roon Ready partners.

Example configurations

The simplest configuration is Roon on a computer. Just download the Roon app and you’re ready to go.






Roon with remote control

Control Roon with the same rich user experience on all your devices. Available for phones, tablets, and PCs!





Multi-room music

Finally – high-resolution, multi-protocol, multi-room streaming for your whole home.

Roon streams formats up to 384kHz/24-bit PCM and DSD256 to Roon Ready devices, and intelligently converts audio to the optimal resolution for other devices.
