JBL Synthesis has announced that its SDP-55 AV processor and the SDR-35 Class G AV receiver are now certified as Roon Ready and Roon Tested. Roon Ready network devices have Roon’s streaming technology built in, which means that these devices transparently discover and connect to Roon to deliver bit-perfect audio. To certify as Roon Tested, a product must also work over USB, HDMI, AirPlay, Google Cast, and other protocols.

Roon Ready status adds multi-room flexibility and Roon’s award-winning integrated music library to the prodigious feature sets aboard the SDP-55 and SDR-35, including 16 channels of native processing, Dolby ATMOS, DTS:X 3D, Auro 3D, IMAX Enhanced, Dirac Live, Logic16, Network Streaming and Dante, with the SDR-35 adding 7 x 100w of Class G amplification.

To get the best from Roon, users of the JBL SDP-55 and SDR-35 should ensure that their machines are running software v1.46.
