LINN ADDS ROON COMPATIBILITY TO ALL DS NETWORK MUSIC PLAYERS
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.”
