. This is where we've dedicated an entire category,
, for the Roon technical team to help troubleshoot any technical issues you may run into.
After exploring multiple options to offer technical support, we've discovered we can be most efficient in a community setting. While you'll still be getting one-to-one support from one of our technicians, other Roon team members can also take a look: our QA and Engineering teams, our Product team, Technical team and even our C-level team are known to chime in and help. Not only that, but a community post can also help us understand how widespread an issue is and take the appropriate steps for all of our customers.
This section would not be complete if we didn't mention the thousands of Roon subscribers that hang out on the community. Many of them know Roon inside out and a number of them are experts in the audio world. A simple skimming of the posts on the community site will undeniably reveal how helpful their actions are.
