Introducing Roon Labs
 
"The ultimate tool for the ultimate music lover"
-Jeff Dorgay (TONEAudio)
 
 
 
Experience music like never before. Between users and across devices you have downloads, ripped CDs, and streaming services, Roon weaves it all into a single music experience connected by rich images and a host of information. Roon runs on your Windows PC or Mac, and can be controlled from another computer or an Android Tablet or Apple iPad. From earbuds to Hi-Fi DACs to network players, listen in one room or around the house with AirPlay, with more streaming formats to come.To say that this product is absolutely stunning in every way would be a huge understatement.We’re really digging ROON and even more excited to offer you a lifetime subscription for 25% off, 50% off or even completely FREE with the purchase of some of our most popular DACs or any just about any component we sell (some restrictions apply). These offers are a great way to get into computer audio or to take your existing digital playback system to the next level.

 

Features

  • Context & Connections - Artist bios, lyrics, photos, reviews, concerts, credits… Roon finds them all and builds them into a surfable, searchable digital magazine about your music.
  • See Artists in Living Color - The era of the LP and its gatefold sleeves filled with incredible imagery is in the past. But the images are not. Roon puts them all at your fingertips again.
  • Classical Music Done Right - There’s more to classical music than artists, albums, and tracks. Roon understands composers, conductors, periods, works, instrumentation, and form.
  • A World of Genres - A single genre like Pop, Rock, or Jazz isn't useful to describe music. Roon creates a multi-layered, detailed genre system to explore your collection in new ways.
  • Audiophile Reproduction - The people who recorded your music took great care creating it. We take the same care playing it back, with Direct Mode and Signal Path features. More DSP, format, and streaming protocol support is coming!
  • Focus on Your Music - R&B singles from the 60s? Baroque music for trumpet performed in 1978? Everything Eric Clapton ever played on? Use Focus to display your collection in any way you can imagine.
  • Truly Personal Radio - Our radio isn’t made up of tracks with similar tempo or instrumentation. It’s based on relationships between performers and composers, starting from tracks you choose.
  • Discover (and Rediscover) - Find out about new releases from your favorite artists. Get new insights into the music you know and love, and explore a world of new music based on your tastes.

NEW PRODUCT ANOUNCEMENTS AND SHIPPING UPDATES

 

Ed Meitner of EMM Labs proudly previews the DA2, his successor to the much beloved DAC2X

The DA2 is EMM Labs next generation flagship DAC. Re-designed from the ground up, Ed Meitner has once again created a DAC that significantly moves the bar in terms of transparency, accuracy and overall sound quality.

New in the DA2:

  • Improved analog stages are now at a whole different level of transparency and performance
  • MDAC™ is now the world’s first true fully discrete 16xDSD/DSD1024 D/A converter.Completely built in-house at EMM Labs' manufacturing facility in Canada.
  • EMM Labs' multi-award winning MDAT2™ DSP has also been refined and updated to synergistically work with the new 16xDSD MDAC™. The new MDAT2™ DSP does real-time transient detection, processing and up-conversion of all incoming audio, PCM and DSD, before sending it to the new 16xDSD MDAC™
  • Proprietary hardware galvanic isolation for the USB Audio interface
  • Every other system from its proprietary jitter removal MFAST™ to its super accurate clock, MCLK™ has been carefully revised for better sound.
  • Inputs -> 1xAES, 1xUSB Audio, 2xSPDIF, 2xTOSLINK
  • Outputs -> Balanced and un-balanced analog outputs (both can be used at the same time

With EMM Labs' MDAT™ DSP engine and MDAC™ already running at 16xDSD (DSD1024, 45Mhz/49Mhz) this unit is basically future proof and now performs at a whole different level/generation of performance than the DAC2X.

 
 
 

"The Dharma D1000 meets or exceeds most of my expectations, when pairing it up with some of my favorite genres of music. Its extremely clean top end makes it a natural choice for hi-res recordings that have been well recorded." 
- Aaron Kovics (headphoneguru review)

There’s something undeniably magic about electrostatics. Whether it’s loudspeakers or headphones, their ability to resolve inner detail, to reproduce music with immediacy, transparency,and focus is unparalleled. Utilizing an almost massless thin film membrane, they have long been regarded as the Holy Grail, and what they do as magic.

Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC Reference Series ($16,000)
NOW OFFERED WITH FREE ROON SOFTWARE ($495 value) OR FREE SHUNYATA POWER CORD ($995 value)
 
After months and months of waiting, we finally have a limited number of Berkley Audio Design's elusive Alpha DAC Reference Series"The Berkeley Audio Alpha DAC Reference redefines what we can expect from digital playback" – Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound"The Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC Reference Series is a DAC for the ages. Delicacy, detail, and unparalleled transparency are hallmarks of the RS. Reproducing soft yet present background instruments as clearly as the lead guitar is something only the Alpha DAC RS has done in my system." 
- Chris Connaker, The Computer Audiophile
 
The Berkeley Alpha DAC Reference Series embodies everything Berkeley Audio Design know about digital to analog conversion taken to an unprecedented level - a level that requires new design concepts and new components at the edge of what is possible. The result is an immediacy and presence of music reproduction that is simply real. They literally designed the Reference Series before it was possible to build it. Almost three years in development, the Alpha DAC Reference Series uses components designed to our specifications that previously were not commercially available. Several suppliers were not able to meet their requirements which delayed the release of the Reference Series by more than a year. But those obstacles were overcome and now the Alpha DAC Reference Series is a reality.

Album of the Month:

 

The Beatles 1

The Beatles‘ best-selling 1 compilation will be reissued and expanded in November as CD+Blu-ray and CD+DVD sets featuring remixed stereo and surround sound and for the first time fully restored full length videosfor each of the 27 number one singles.

Exciting though this video content is, the sound is a very big deal since all editions of the new 1 reissue feature newly created stereo and 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS HD surround audio mixes, produced from the original analogue tapes by Giles Martin with Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios (Jeff Lynne and engineer Steve Jay have remixed Free As A Bird and Real Love). The CD with these packages uses the new stereo mixes, not the 2009 remasters (a 2LP 180g vinyl package will follow).
