Leema Acoustics streamers add Roon compatibility

Roon to improve

by Andy Bassett

A key software upgrade adds Roon to the Stream IV, Elements Streamer and Quaser and enables them to become Leema Acoustics' best-performing streamers to date.

Wales based Leema Acoustics, formed back in 1998, has been making a name for itself by releasing an increasing portfolio of its hand assembled, high-performance audio products. During the lockdown earlier in the year, the company also adjusted its customer facing operations and offered direct dispatch of its product from its factory to ensure consumers weren’t disappointed.

Now, if you own a Leema streamer (surely marketing must have considered Leema Streema!), then there’s some good news as the company announces Roon functionality coming to its streaming range.

The press release detailing the update is quoted below.


Leema Acoustics has upgraded its streaming-capable products to include Roon playback. Several products are primed to benefit from the upgrade including the company’s recently launched Stream IV streaming CD player (£2,295), Elements Streamer (£1,295) and Quasar streaming amp/DAC (£2,995), which will now ship Roon Ready; the company’s Sirius (£3,995) streaming music server is already compatible. 

The Roon upgrade follows the rollout of a key software update for mconnect, Leema Acoustics’ recommended DLNA/UPnP control point app for Apple and Android. The update also brings gapless and DSD playback, improved operational performance and more. Roon compatibility joins an already impressive mconnect feature list including Tidal, Spotify and Qobuz integration, plus vTuner Internet Radio and Deezer.

The latest software instantly upgrades the Welsh company’s streaming products, making the four-strong streaming-capable range the best-performing since launch.

The software upgrade is also readily available for existing streaming product customers for immediate installation. Leema Acoustics has provided comprehensive details of how to install the update here, plus the company’s dealer network is also happy to assist.

Commenting on the new software upgrade and addition of Roon, Leema Acoustics’ Andy Moore said, “Roon is growing in popularity with music lovers globally, therefore, it makes perfect sense for Leema Acoustics to add compatibility across the full range, plus as a side effect of adopting the latest core code, we can also perceive a subtle step up in sound quality, regardless of the chosen audio stream."
