New Specification 2018
Roon is a great tool for managing large, complex music libraries. Tight integration with Tidal means that whatever size your collection, it now effectively also includes the millions in the Tidal library.
Roonserver software is standard on all Vortexbox Nova systems. As Roon is more processor intensive than the other applications that we run we specify our Roon Servers to include a special more powerful, energy efficient CPU.
Nova software. Run all standard Nova Applications + Roon Server + play to local USB DAC or network player around the house such as microRendu or SonicOrbiter SE. Nova uses a customised version of SonicOrbiter software.
