EsoTeric n-01 adds roon
Esoteric’s N-01 Network Player now supports Roon, and existing owners can update their players for free. If you already own an Esoteric N-01 Network Player and want the Roon upgrade, simply fire up the ‘Esoteric Sound Stream’ app and use it to update the NET firmware of your machine to the latest version. ‘ Roon is the most engaging, enjoyable way to browse your music,’ said Michael Marchant, of Reference Audio Visual, which distributes Esoteric in Australia. ‘ Being Roon Ready means that Esoteric network players transparently discover and connect to Roon, with no network configuration, and with bit-perfect delivery of audio to your DAC. Together, Roon and Esoteric deliver the power, flexibility, and performance benefits of networked audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.’
Based in Tokyo, Esoteric is a company that TEAC established in 1987 specifically to manufacture hand-built, high-end audio components in small quantities for discerning audiophiles.
