Roon Labs Unveils Two New Music Servers

X

Roon Labs, acquired by Harman in 2023, has recently revealed its new Nucleus One & Nucleus Titan Music Servers, which incorporate advanced computer technology, technical design, and manufacturing processes to deliver turn-key devices intended for Roon’s music library management and multi-room music player software.

Additionally, there’s a chance the company will be changing its subscription price to fit in with the new product.

The Nucleus One joins Nucleus Titan, and replaces previous Nucleus models with updated styling, hardware, and performance.

It’s easy to set up and operate, and is a dedicated Roon server created from high-quality polycarbonate with characteristics that echo the Titan.

It’s retailing for U$499.99, and is described as the “most affordable dedicated Roon server available.”

Designed to support Roon OS reliability and performance, it works with other Roon-compatible devices from participating partner companies.

Connections include two USB-A and one audio-only HDMI port, and the device can accommodate 2.5-inch internal SATA drives, complete with up to 8TB library storage capacity.

It provides cool operation via a quiet internal fan, and features a precision moulded, modern space grey, high-quality polycarbonate enclosure, complete with a “bird’s nest” top.

Roon Co-Founder, Enno Vandermeer said, “In the rare case where one team can control hardware, firmware, operating system, and application software, it’s possible to do amazing things. We’ve been on a mission to develop something unique we could recommend to our friends and families. Nucleus One is the culmination of all our experience up to this point: a dedicated Roon server for the price of an off-the-shelf mini PC.”
