How the Roon Tested Program Works

The Roon Labs QA team has tested these McIntosh devices across operating systems, chipsets, and device types to understand how they operate in different environment. Roon Labs and McIntosh then worked together to resolve any compatibility issues that popped up during testing. Finally, the device settings in Roon were optimizedto improve the customer experience. No fiddling with checkboxes or dropdowns, Roon Tested devices are automatically identified and configured out of the box.
