Roon 1.7 (Build 610) is Live!

 

If you aren’t familiar with Roon, or have questions, let us know. We are huge fans and happy to share what we know about Roon and how it can work for you!

The latest update of Roon is now going live with performance improvements, bug fixes, and our new Sleep Timer feature!

Many Roon users listen to music in bed or while winding down for the day in their favorite listening place. Whether it’s a soothing playlist or internet radio station, it’s a great way to end the day. With our latest update, you can do just that. Simply start your music, set when you want it to end, and fall asleep to your tunes as the music gently fades out. The sleep timer is available for any zone on any device, and can be accessed from the zone’s volume pop-up by clicking on the moon crescent icon.

In addition to the new sleep timer, they have also implemented a number of functionality improvements, including updates to the DSP and graphics engine, which can be found in the full release notes below. We hope you enjoy this long awaited update and look forward to hearing what you think.

Roon Build 610 is now rolling out for macOS, Windows, Windows (64 Bit), and Linux. Updated versions of Roon for Android and iOS have been submitted to their respective App Stores and will be available soon. All platforms and apps should update automatically.
