Cambridge Audio Azur 851N Now Roon Ready

Cambridge Audio’s Azur 851N network audio player is now Roon Ready.

The addition of Roon Ready integration expands upon the wealth of options already offered by the £1,399 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. From then, you will be presented with the highest possible quality audio, and be able to control the volume 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. Roon is a powerful interface not least as it aggregates all your digital files, whether stored on NAS or accessed via Tidal or Qobuz, all in one place. Furthermore, this makes searching for tracks and albums much more manageable.

All tracks are played on the 851N 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 entirely absent, giving your music the quality it deserves.
