SOUND UNITED BRINGS ROON TESTED COMPATIBILITY TO 68 MARANTZ AND DENON PRODUCTS

Vista, Calif. (March 19, 2020)—Sound United LLC, parent company to Denon, Polk Audio, Marantz, Definitive Technology, Classé, and Boston Acoustics, today announced several Denon and Marantz products received Roon Tested accreditation. This certification enables music lovers to seamlessly stream music from Roon server or Roon Core devices to 68 Denon and Marantz products for a visually rich, and easy-to-use listening experience.

“A critical aspect of the listening experience is learning more about your favorite artists, song writers and bands. It makes the music more intimate and alive,” said Brendon Stead, senior vice president of product development at Sound United. “In the past this intimacy was delivered by the record or CD covers and has been missing from digital online music. Roon helped pioneer this type of experience in the world of streaming music. We’re very excited Denon and Marantz is now Roon Tested so our enthusiastic listeners can continue discovering more about the music they love.”

Leveraging credits, artist relationships, genres, lyrics, concert/tour dates, artwork, and more, Roon adds a new dimension of music exploration to user libraries. By merging Roon Tested devices from Denon and Marantz with local digital music files and high-resolution streaming services like TIDAL and Qobuz, listeners receive a cross-platform networked music ecosystem with server apps for Roon Nucleus, Mac, Windows, and Linux. Control is managed via apps for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android, with networked audio output capability to any Roon Ready, Roon Tested, AirPlay™, Chromecast, Mac, Windows, iOS, or Android device on the network.

“We're excited to have worked with the Sound United team to ensure the best possible experience of Roon with dozens of Denon and Marantz products. Few brands in audio have the storied histories of Denon and Marantz, and we're honored to be a part of their future,” said Rob Darling, Directory of Strategy at Roon Labs.

Another benefit to the Roon interface is its unique approach to TIDAL and Qobuz streaming integration. Now Denon and Marantz users can enjoy their personal content libraries seamlessly merged with their high-resolution streaming favorites so searches and playlists will include content from both sources.

Denon and Marantz are offering a free 60-day Roon trial coupon for a limited time. Interested users can learn more at Roonlabs.com, Denon.com or Marantz.com.
