Swiss streamer specialist Wattson Audio has announced that both the Emerson Digital and Emerson Analog have received Roon Ready certification from Roon Labs.
Roon transforms the experience of browsing, organizing, and listening to music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then aggregated and interconnected by links to build a surfable digital magazine. Roon is also a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform, and it offers features such as bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel support, and signal path display.
The Emerson products are compact network bridges with the Digital model offering digital output on AES/EBU and RCA coax and the Analog containing a DAC and providing an analogue output. Both models cost €1,250. They can be controlled with the Wattson Music app but this latest upgrade adds the flexibility of Roon to the package.
