Nucleus is the centre of your Roon music system. It’s the housekeeper, the traffic cop, and the brain that takes care of the music in your life. Using Nucleus, Roon manages all your music – on hard drives, NAS, and streaming content – and allows you to play it on all the audio devices around your home. 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 optimised to do just one thing: browse and play music. Roon is a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform built to the exacting standards of audiophiles, so it offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel playback, and signal path display.

As well as distributing music throughout your home, Nucleus also offers the very finest performance possible when connected to a USB DAC. A computer source has never sounded this good before.

Made By Roon

The brain behind the entire Roon experience is the Roon Core. Every aspect of Nucleus — hardware, operating system, and software — was developed to provide a silent, high-performance, power-efficient Roon Core, by the same team that created Roon.

Simply The Best

Nucleus is the easiest and fastest way to get your Roon system running. No computer or networking skills required. You just take it home, plug it in, and download Roon apps for your mobile devices and computers. Nucleus keeps itself current with automatic updates.

Built For Sound Quality

Nucleus has no fans, spinning disks, or moving parts of any kind, and its minimal operating system is tuned for delivering high-performance audio. Whether you put it in your listening room, on your desk, or in a rack, you can be confident you will be getting the best sound from any music server.

Developed With Intel

The rich Roon experience requires modern computing power, and the more the better. We worked with Intel to develop Nucleus to support Roon now and in the future. It has horsepower to spare for large music libraries, multi-room streaming, and DSP.
