Qobuz is Integrated into Roon!
Many Qobuz enthusiasts who are passionate about music, discovering music and discovering more about artists have been impatiently waiting for this announcement: Qobuz is finally integrated into Roon.
Roon is not just a smart player (compatible with several applications and various brands) that can quickly identify and list all the compatible music devices within the network in which it is installed, however they may be linked (internal to the system, USB, Airplay, or even Chromecast to name the most common). It is also a brilliant music referencing tool, like a sort of Musicapedia for the user.
