Today, we’re excited to announce built-in support for Devialet AIR in Roon!
Roon has always been the best way to explore the music you love, across all of your devices and rooms. Now, anyone with a Devialet Expert or Expert Pro system (all the way back to the very earliest models) can stream high-resolution audio using Devialet AIR technology directly from Roon, without a virtual sound card driver!
How to get started
To get started with Roon and Devialet AIR, update to Roon version 1.3 (build 242).
Then just enable your Expert or Expert Pro in Roon’s Audio Settings, and enjoy the music!
If you’re not yet a Roon member, start a free trial today.
AIR, like never before
A NEW IMPLEMENTATION
Until now, streaming with Devialet AIR required a driver for Mac and Windows. That driver had to stream audio in real time, which is an extremely challenging engineering problem on most networks. By implementing AIR directly, Roon unlocks the full potential of Devialet AIR and creates a great experience, with increased stability and responsiveness.
Roon’s built-in AIR integration works on all platforms (including Linux), meaning the Devialet AIR driver is no longer required. Roon also supports the Expert’s built-in DSD64 capabilities.
As a bonus, during playback, Roon takes exclusive control of the device, so OS notification sounds do not interfere with your music.
As always, Roon makes transparent exactly what’s happening to the audio stream, and our partnership with Devialet highlights the processing happening inside the Expert.
Adjust volume, and power down your Expert system, straight from Roon on your Mac or Windows device, or from your iOS or Android device.
When you start playback in Roon, your Expert system turns on and selects the appropriate input automatically, so you can focus on the music and not fiddling with remotes.
