Linn has an­nounced sup­port for Roon across its en­tire range of DS play­ers. Com­pat­i­bil­ity ex­tends to ev­ery DS model, be­gin­ning with the launch of the first Kli­max DS, in­tro­duced in 2007.

Roon is a mu­sic man­age­ment and brows­ing tool. Artist pho­tos, cred­its, bios, re­views, lyrics, tour dates, and com­posers are lo­cated au­to­mat­i­cally, then in­ter­con­nected by links to build a search­able dig­i­tal en­vi­ron­ment cen­tred around a user’s mu­sic col­lec­tion.

Linn has worked with Roon to pro­duce a cus­tom im­ple­men­ta­tion of the plat­form, build­ing com­pat­i­bil­ity into Linn DS play­ers. The mu­sic man­age­ment soft­ware works along­side Ka­zoo, Linn’s own con­trol app, and other third-party op­tions for DS users.

Roon sub­scribers can now se­lect a Linn DS player from within the Roon con­trol app and lis­ten in up to Stu­dio Mas­ter qual­ity through their au­dio sys­tem. From ver­sion 1.5, Roon will stream high­res­o­lu­tion au­dio from Tidal, play net­work NAS files or work with iTunes li­braries, to all Linn net­work play­ers.

‘Linn’s open ap­proach to soft­ware de­vel­op­ment has led to the cre­ation of a di­ver­sity of con­trol apps, al­low­ing our cus­tomers to find the so­lu­tion that works best for them,” says Gilad Tiefen­brun, Linn Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor.

“Roon’s of­fer­ing of an in­tu­itive mu­sic man­age­ment and rich brows­ing ex­pe­ri­ence led us to col­lab­o­rate on this new im­ple­men­ta­tion and we are de­lighted to in­tro­duce Roon as a new and ex­cit­ing way for our cus­tomers to in­ter­act with their Linn sys­tem.”
