(CAMBRIDGE, UK) April 5, 2021 – ARCAM confirms ‘Roon Ready’ status for five of its models: the AVR10, AVR20, and AVR30 AV receivers; the AV40 AV processor; and SA30 class G intelligent amplifier. Roon Ready status exclusively applies to network devices that have Roon’s streaming technology built in and means that these devices transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration to deliver bit-perfect audio. The five ARCAM models have been certified by Roon Labs, working with the ARCAM engineering team, to provide the highest level of quality and performance in network streaming. To certify as a Roon Tested device, a product must also work over USB, HDMI, AirPlay, Google Cast, and other protocols. Again, all five ARCAM models have been profiled by the Roon engineers, alongside the ARCAM engineers, to ensure simple setup and effortless daily use.
As a result, this ARCAM fivesome offers even greater value and performance to existing, and new, users. Already classleading, and award-winning, models in their own rights, Roon Ready status further ups the ante, bringing Roon’s effortless multi-room abilities and its unified music library to the fingertips of users of the AVR10, AVR20, AVR30, AV40, and SA30.
To ensure that models are running the latest Roon certified software, existing AVR 10/20/30 and AV40 users should run ARCAM Software v1.46, and SA30 users should check for ARCAM Software V867.
