Innuos and Roon Partnership Announced
Innuos, the leading digital audio specialist joins Roon’s exclusive partner program, allowing customers to use Roon as a Server (Core) and as a Player (Bridge) on their Zen MkII Music Servers.
Multiple Roon-based scenarios - just a click away
Customers will be able to select through the innuOS App whether and how they want to use their Zen MkII music server with Roon software. Three scenarios will be possible:
1. Using a Zen MkII server as both Roon Server and Player,
connecting it to a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC).
2. Using a Zen MkII server as a Roon Server, connecting it to one or more Roon Ready Players.
3. Using a Zen MkII server as a Roon Ready Player, connecting it to a DAC and to a PC/Mac running Roon.
All these settings are optional and reversible, which means
customers can try Roon worry-free as they can easily go back to using the Zen MkII as they used to.
2-month free Roon trial license
A Roon license, purchased separately will be required to use a Zen MkII music server as a Roon Server. To celebrate the launch of this new partnership, all Zen MkII models will come with a free 2-month Roon trial.
Available from innuOS 1.2.0 release
Using Roon with any Zen MkII model will be available in the coming weeks with release 1.2.0 of innu OS – the Operating System developed in-house by Innuos. This means existing customers will also be able to enjoy this new feature. Innuos is continuously innovating and adding new features to innu OS based on customer and partner feedback. Software updates can easily be done remotely by customers from the comfort of their homes through a simple click on the app.
