There are two drivers: the Roon Core driver, which uses several AVSwitch proxies and manages the connection to the Nucleus, and the Roon Zone driver, which uses the Media Service Proxy (MSP) and Amplifier Proxy to manage a single output device.

These drivers are compatible with Control4 version 2.9.1 and above.
