JBL Synthesis SDP-55 and SDR-35 Are Roon Ready

AV processor and Class G AV receiver can now access Roon’s streaming service.

JBL Synthesis has announced Roon Ready and Roon Tested status for its SDP-55 AV processor and the SDR-35 Class G AV receiver. Roon Ready exclusively applies to network devices that have Roon’s streaming technology built in and means that these devices transparently discover and connect to Roon without any configuration to deliver bit-perfect audio. The JBL Synthesis pair has been certified by Roon Labs, working with the JBL Synthesis engineering teams, to provide the highest level of quality and performance in network streaming. To certify as a Roon Tested device, a product must also work over USB, HDMI, AirPlay, Google Cast, and other protocols.

Both JBL Synthesis models embrace 16 channels of native processing, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X 3D, Auro 3D, IMAX Enhanced, Dirac Live, Logic16, Network Streaming, and Dante, with the SDR-35 adding 7 x 100 watts of Class G amplification. The addition of Roon Ready status opens up the world of Roon to JBL Synthesis SDP-55 and SDR-35 customers, including multi-room flexibility as well as the system’s integrated music library.

To get the best from Roon, users of the JBL Synthesis SDP-55 and SDR-35 should ensure that their machines are running software v1.46.
