From the press release:

New York, April 13, 2016 – The 1.2 release of Roon marks the launch of the Roon Core partner program, which places the Roon Core software functions into partner devices so that server companies can offer a turnkey Roon experience.

“For many customers, the journey of building and managing a computer audio system is a hobby that they enjoy, but for others, working through the challenges of making an ideal computer audio system is an obstacle to enjoying music.

“The Roon Core program means that these customers can leave the technology to others and have an off-the-shelf experience of Roon from trusted partners.”—Roon Labs CEO, Enno Vandermeer
