Roon Labs, which is now owned by Harman International , had announced the Nucleus Titan at CES 2024 . At that time no photos or technical details were known. The Roon Nucleus Titan has now been put into production, which is why we are once again paying attention to the Roon Nucleus Titan. We don’t know yet when delivery will start.

Music server for Roon enthusiasts

According to the designers, the Nucleus Titan is nothing less than the top-class Roon music server, combining the latest technology with precision production and a customizable appearance. The Nucleus Titan offers next-generation features and improved performance. Manufactured with great attention to detail, the Nucleus Titan gives its customers the choice: it is available with a metal, stone or wood housing and thus makes it possible to adapt the server/streamer to individual preferences and living spaces and also to create a unique visual experience.

The Nucleus series has long been known as the ultimate server/streamer solution for Roon enthusiasts. The Titan surpasses its predecessor, the Nucleus Plus, offering updated hardware and improved performance. This ensures easy installation and worry-free operation. The striking design enhances any listening environment and expertly takes center stage.

Following the 2023 acquisition of Roon Labs by Harman International, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Roon offers an advanced music exploration platform, broad compatibility with audio devices, and a playback engine that delivers unparalleled sound quality.

Roon Lans works independently within the Harman group and the dedicated team and continues his original mission.
