Nucleus by Roon


Nucleus by Roon

Designed for music and audio enthusiasts, Nucleus is the centerpiece of a high-performance multi-room music system that works with a huge family of audio products. Now you don’t need a PC or NAS to enjoy music with Roon; just connect Nucleus to your network and control it from your phone, tablet, and Mac or Windows computer.

 


 

How It Works

Nucleus requires no configuration; just connect it to your network and download the Roon app for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows to control it.

You can install an internal hard drive or SSD for content storage, add an external USB drive, or keep your music on a NAS.

For audio playback, just connect a USB DAC or stream to any of the huge family of network players supported by Roon, including Roon Ready, Sonos, AirPlay, Devialet AIR, Meridian, and Squeezebox.
