Roon Ready Networked Speakers

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there are any lower cost options other than the Elac Discovery Z3 and the Bluesound products?  I'm looking for Roon Ready all in one for music playback and it doesn't need to be the end all in fidelity.  An echo dot would technically do the trick if I wanted to use Amazon Music but I really don't like the fact that they are so intrusive.

If if I take “Roon Ready” to mean that it’s accessed by both the Roon Core and the Roon app then the obvious one would be a Sonos Play1 which retails for $149.00. 

If you like you can always add another and make them a stereo pair.

From what I've seen Roon works best if endpoints are running roon software that you install from roon. This means a Raspberry Pi or a NUC pc or something, connected to an amp and/or speakers. Seems like 3rd party vendors who embed the roon RAAT protocol have more glitches and support involves finger pointing. The diy approach also gives you a lot more flexibility for speakers.
