Cambridge, UK. June 18, 2021 – ARCAM is pleased to announce that its ST60 streamer has received Roon Ready certification from Roon Labs. Available now, the ST60 is ARCAM’s debut dedicated network player, bringing the Cambridge maker’s extensive experience with digital audio to the world of standalone streaming machines. Already equipped with a host of connectivity and audiophile-level performance features, Roon Ready certification adds a further crucial component to the ST60’s skills.
Roon Ready status exclusively applies to network devices that have Roon’s streaming technology built in. Consequently, the ST60 discovers and connects to Roon, without any configuration, to deliver bit-perfect audio. Roon Ready certificated products also enable effortless multi-room, letting users wirelessly connect Roon devices – including all of ARCAM’s AVRs, plus its SA30 class G integrated amplifier, as well as the ST60 – and control zones via the Roon app’s elegant user interface.
“The ST60 combines ARCAM’s renowned audio quality with convenient streaming for the modern audiophile,” commented Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, HARMAN Luxury Audio. “Roon Ready certification further enhances the far-reaching abilities of the ST60, delivering listeners the absolute best experience from digital music files.”
To ensure that their machine is running the latest Roon certified software, ST60 users should run ARCAM software (minimum) 0.67/1155.
