Selected Pioneer AV receivers gain ‘Roon Tested’ accreditation
Press Release dated: 18 Sep 2019
The Onkyo & Pioneer Corporation is pleased to announce that selected AV receivers from Pioneer's 2019 range have received ‘Roon Tested’ accreditation for their Chromecast connectivity. Roon is the definitive music management and listening solution. ‘Roon Tested’ accreditation means that the AV receiver is automatically configured in the ecosystem, the product icon appearing in Roon’s Signal Path and Zone Selector. You can then easily stream music from your Roon Core (Mac or Windows PC with Roon app installed, or Roon Server device) to the AV receiver.
“Our partnership with Onkyo & Pioneer Corporation represents a solid foundation to the Roon Tested program. We’re so proud of the first-class experience this partnership delivers, and we can’t wait to share it with Onkyo and Pioneer customers,” said Rob Darling, Directory of Strategy at Roon Labs.
The following Pioneer components are designated as ‘Roon Tested’. There is no firmware update necessary, users just need to launch Roon to get started:
