For nearly two years now StereoNET has sung the praises of Roon, the ultimate way to manage, maintain and control your digital music library.

In Roon's own words, “The music player for music lovers.”

Quite successfully Roon has, in a short time managed to attract over 40 hardware manufacturers, some of the biggest names in the HiFi world. These products have been given “Roon Ready” accreditation.

What many probably didn't see coming, however, was Roon's hardware products which are said to be released to the global market soon.

Announced today, leading distributor Interdyn will be the exclusive distributor of Roon products in Australia.

Directors of Interdyn, Sam Encel and Evgeny Vizelman spoke to StereoNET this morning on this appointment:

Roon rocks! We see their technology as an important advancement for the industry – the kind of thing that we live and breathe. We're extremely proud to be the distribution partner of Roon here in Australia and we both look forward to championing our collective vision with dedication and passion.

Roon Labs was founded in 2015 by the team that was responsible for Sooloos which when on to fame after being acquired by Meridian in 2008.

Today, Roon is the champion of digital music management. It allows you to discover and experience your music in a way you never have before. It is an elegant, audiophile-centric music library manager and network streamer.
