 One Year of ROON!




Nucleus is the best way to run Roon, at any price. Just plug Nucleus into your network, connect your hard drives, download Roon remote apps (iOS, Android, macOS, Windows), and you’ll be ready to play music using a wide variety of audio devices, including AirPlay, Sonos, Roon Ready, Devialet, KEF, Meridian, Squeezebox, and a huge variety of USB DACs.

Aside from being a powerful, fanless music server, what sets Nucleus apart is that it’s powered by Roon OS – a fast and lightweight operating system optimized to do just one thing: browse and play music.
