Cambridge Audio brings Roon Ready technology to its award-winning 851N network audio player

London, UK – Cambridge Audio’s award-winning Azur 851N network audio player now includes integration of Roon’s high-resolution streaming and music management technology.

With over 50 years of experience creating audio equipment, Cambridge Audio has always understood that its customers enjoy listening to their music collections in a variety of different ways. The addition of Roon Ready integration expands upon the wealth of options already offered by the 851N streamer.

Following the Roon Ready updates for the Edge NQ and CXN (V2), a software update is now available for the 851N featuring Roon Ready. Once the product is updated, Roon will discover it on your network, deliver the highest possible quality audio, and even allow volume control right from the Roon user interface.

Roon Ready certification means the 851N network audio streamer now discovers and connects to Roon without any additional configuration.

You can stream virtually any file to the 851N and its internal engine will then bring it to life. All tracks are put through Cambridge Audio’s 2nd generation Adaptive Time Filtering that upsamples everything to 24bit/384kHz hi-res quality, no matter the original source. As a result, jitter is almost completely absent, and the music sounds amazing.
