Aurender and Roon

In addition to using Aurender’s award-winning Conductor App and playback engine, we are excited to announce certain models has now become certified Roon endpoints.
Thanks to your support for our initial launch of Roon Ready on the Aurender N20, Roon Ready mode will now be a free upgrade for all Intel-based “N-Series” (N200, N20, N30SA) and “ACS-Series” (ACS100, ACS10) models, except for the N150. Stay tuned for upcoming support for the N150! (Updated 2024/Apr/29 18:00 CST)
The “A-Series” models (A200, A15, A20, A30) are currently undergoing Roon certification. Due to the complexity of the certification process, we find it challenging to provide a precise timeline but we will share updates as soon as we have more clarity. Stay tuned!
Previous generation, AMD-based models, including: S10, N10, W20, W20SE, X100, X100L, A10, A100, N100H, N100C, N100SC will not be compatible with Roon Ready mode. 
Roon is a rich and engaging way to browse, organize, discover, and play your music. Being ‘Roon Ready’ means that supported Aurender units are discoverable endpoints for the Roon Server and can be connected with a few easy steps.

Getting started with Roon

Setup instructions to connect an Aurender with your Roon System

  • You’ll need to have a Roon subscription and Roon Server setup in your local network. (If you don’t already have a Roon subscription, you can sign up for a free 14-day Roon trial subscription here: Free 14-Day Trial.)
  • For more information on how to use Roon, or for Roon Support, visit the Roon Kowledge Base.
  • If you already have a Roon Server running, you must restart the device hosting the Server at least twice to ensure compatibility with Aurender units.
  1. Update the Conductor App to the latest version on your iOS or Android device in the App Store or Google Play store. (V4.10 or later)
    • Update the System Software to 1.24.29 or later on your Aurender by going to ‘Settings ➡️ Software Update‘ in the Conductor App.

    3. Once the Aurender System Software update is installed, your Aurender will be discoverable in the Roon Server for the output selected from the Conductor App.

    To find your Aurender in the Roon Server, navigate to ‘Settings (⚙) ➡️ Audio ➡️ “Roon Ready‘ Section.

    4. Depending on which Aurender model you are using, you may have to choose the desired Audio Output that you want to use with Roon.
    By default, after updating the System Software, the output is set to “S/PDIF (COAX, BNC, Optical) + AES/EBU”.
    If you wish to use the USB output, you can select “USB'” from the Conductor App under ‘Settings ➡️ Streaming ➡️ Roon‘. This allows Aurender and Roon to optimize the settings for maximum performance with each output. Please remember that you’ll need to connect your USB DAC to the Aurender first in order to enable Roon in the Conductor App.

    5. Click “Enable” on the Roon Server.

    *Tip: After enabling your Aurender device, you can rename it according to your preference, such as “N20 USB,” “N20 S/PDIF,” or “John’s Audio Room.” However, we recommend including the output name to avoid confusion when selecting an output.

    6. Choose your newly Roon Ready enabled Aurender under Audio Device output in Roon:

    7. Enjoy the music!
    ** When used as a Roon Endpoint, Aurender’s default output is set to S/PDIF. If you change the output to USB from the Conductor App, this action will cause a new “Aurender N20/ACS10/..” to appear in the Roon Ready list. Once again, enable it on the Roon Server and name it as you prefer (e.g., Aurender N20 USB)
